3 Exotic Fruit Mask

You can’t have exotic facial recipes without exotic fruits, right?! This next facial mask uses papaya, which is an exotic fruit from Mexico and South America, yogurt and coconut oil. Papayas contain tons of antioxidants and Vitamin A to remove dead skin cells. And coconut oil is filled with vitamin E for tons of moisture!

1 tablespoon papaya pulp
1 tablespoon yogurt
2 tablespoons coconut oil

4 Rose Petal Mask

Another facial recipe for normal skin or combination skin is this flowery, rose-themed facial mask. If you don’t have any roses at home, why not treat yourself to some to spruce up your place and lift your mood? Don’t forget to save a rose for this recipe and combine it with soothing rose water along with honey and yogurt for a revitalizing treat!

1-2 Rose Petals (any kind)
1 Tbsp Rosewater (you can find this at a health food store)
1 Tbsp Natural Yogurt
1 Tbsp Honey

Wash the rose petals in water, and let soak for a few minutes. add rosewater, yogurt, and honey. mix well, and apply to skin for 10 minutes. Rinse well, and moisturize.

5 Kiwi Mask

Kiwi fruits are the main ingredient in our next exotic facial recipe. This exotic fruit is rich in vitamins and citric acid for an invigorating treatment that moisturizes and gives skin a deep cleaning! All you need is a kiwi, an egg and olive oil and you’re good to go!

1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon of fresh kiwi juice
1 tablespoon of olive oil

Blend the ingredients well and apply the mixture all over your face. Leave it to sit for 10-15 minutes and then clean your face with a tissue.

6 Papaya Pumpkin Facial

Exotic facial recipes call for fresh fruits and veggies and this papaya-pumpkin combo will exfoliate, soften and renew your skin! Since it’s fall, you probably have a can of pumpkin puree in your pantry so use some for this mask and fix yourself a pumpkin latte and some baked goods with the leftovers! Papayas are usually in season in summer but most grocery stores should carry them year round.

2/3 cup fresh papaya, mashed
1/2 cup. can pure pumpkin
1 egg, beaten

Cut the papaya in half and scoop out the seeds. Scoop out the papaya fruit and mash it well to eliminate lumps in the mask. Beat the egg until it is frothy. Combine that with the papaya. Add the pumpkin to the egg/papaya mixture and whip together. You can also mix the ingredients in the blender or a food processor for an extra smooth mask.

Wash with your daily cleanser and remove all residual makeup on your skin. Rinse with warm water. It's very important to have clean skin to ensure you get maximum benefits from the facial.

Cover your entire face, being careful to avoid the immediate eye area. If you have sensitive skin, test the mixture on your hand before spreading it on your face. You'll feel some tingling as the enzymes in the pumpkin go to work immediately -- gently exfoliating your top layer of skin. It works like a scrub without being abrasive to your skin. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes.

After you've relaxed for ten minutes it's time to rinse. The mask is fairly thick -- head for the kitchen sink.

7 Beer Face Mask

Okay, so beer doesn’t necessarily qualify as an exotic ingredient among these facial recipes for normal skin but it is, well, different! All you need is a little bit of beer, almond extract and an egg white and you’re on your way to healthy-looking skin!

Beer: 1/2 teaspoon
Egg white: 1
