3 interesting ways to use papaya on the face

 How many times has it happened that you’ve heard your favourite celebrities vouch for the benefits of slathering fruits and fruit peels all over the skin?




Many times, we’re sure. After all, nothing beats the natural goodness of fruits and the very many nutrients they contain for bettering the skin.

A slight glimpse at the fruits and veggies lying in your kitchen is enough to make you realise the number of possibilities you’re depriving your skin of.

Case in point: papayas, an excellent source of vitamin A, B and C with AHAs, fibres and a bunch of minerals.

Papain, an enzyme found in papayas, aids with a slew of skin concerns like dead skin, blemishes, dullness, pigmentation and clogged pores.

So, why not enrich your skin with a much-needed dose of papayas in these three exciting ways?

1. Papaya face cleanser

Papayas make for great face cleansers, thanks to the deep cleansing and mild exfoliating properties of the fruit. You can keep your pore health in check and also keep blemishes at bay, by rubbing some homemade papaya face cleanser all over your skin. All you need to do is mash some papaya and add grated cucumber and a few drops of vitamin E oil to it as the latter ensures moisturised skin while the former tones and tightens the skin. Gently rub the paste on the face and wash with cold water.

2. Papaya face scrub

Let papaya do its OG job, i.e. exfoliation, as you whip up a papaya-infused scrub at home. While papaya exfoliates chemically, thanks to the AHAs and enzymes, you can mix it up with a physical exfoliator like brown sugar and oatmeal to elevate the exfoliation for effective results. Don’t worry, all three agents are mild exfoliators and will rid your skin of dullness, dead skin and dryness, revealing brighter and smoother skin. All you need to do is simply mix mashed papaya, oatmeal and brown sugar in a 1:1:1 ratio and scrub it over the skin.

3. Papaya face mask

Putting on a papaya mask is a smart thing to do if you’re yearning for glowing, smooth, fresh and healthy-looking skin. Vitamin C aids with pigmentation, vitamin A reduces inflammation while papain takes care of blemishes, marks and acne. Don’t fret over dryness, since AHAs look after that. To make a papaya face mask, add honey and milk to a bowl of mashed ripe papaya in a 2:1:2 ratio and churn it up well. Milk and honey boost the brightening and softening effects. You can also add a pinch of turmeric for extra glow or one egg white to tighten the skin.
