Ancient Egyptians would probably have added a teaspoon of bee pollen to further enhance the beautifying powers of this recipe. I do too occasionally.
Thanks to its silicon and potassium content, cucumber rejuvenates your appearance by promoting skin elasticity and reducing blemishes. Cucumber also soothes your nerves and acts as a natural diuretic. The beta-carotene in papaya and the vitamin E in avocado fight free radicals and help prevent premature aging.
Freeze some chunks of papaya the night before and use them as edible ice cubes.
