  3. Put equal parts of each and then add some liquid oil so that it is not so sticky. :)

  4. If you have a food processor, you could try putting the papaya seeds in and grinding them down to a medium/fine consistency. Then add the honey and the sugar. Make sure to add the honey first and mix that together, then add the sugar and try not to mix it too much because you'll want the sugar to be in big pieces (I know sugar isn't that big to begin with, but mixing it could make the sugar granules break down into smaller pieces and you want the granules to be big enough that it will exfoliate your skin, if that makes sense). Then, slather it onto your skin with a circular motion and after you've exfoliated, you can just rinse it off.

    You want to try a skin "brightener" or "lightener" use one that has licorice and morus root....it evens skin tone.

    Salt scrubs are generally the best because they have oil in them to give an extra layer of moisture. I found the Africa Spa Salt Scrub at The Body Shop that works amazing because it is packed with Shea Butter. It is super moisturizing!

    The trick is to vigorously massage using pure, natural oils. They are noncomedogenic so do not clog or cause breakouts or make skin oily. Extra virgin olive, coconut and sweet almond oils are good
    So as not to pull/stretch skin, first tighten by opening mouth 3/4" and pulling lips FIRMLY back against teeth. Do quite a fast forward and back massage - a circular one will not work. For quickest results do each day for 15 min.(Doesn't have to be all in one session).
    Works on nose also though it is slower working.. I had a mass of nose blackheads and they completely cleared in about 8 days

    I have just been rubbing my face and neck with the ridges of my fingers and hands. It has made a HUGE difference in my complexion after just one night. ...... my skin looks so much tighter and i no longer have bags under my eyes! Thank you so much for your post, I have been suffering with acne and under-eye circles since i was young.
    It's vitally important to stop using skin harming and skin sickening toxic laden cosmetic and skin care products. Skin is prematurely aged and wrinkled by them. See "Skin Deep Database: A Feelgood Resource". You will be shocked at how harmful, even hazardous, they are. You can search the Database for others that are safer or only minimally harming ones.
