The good thing about using papaya on your skin care routine is that it’s quite easy to apply compared to most natural beauty treatments. You won’t need to do any mixing, pitting or mashing. Just grab your knife and peel a strip off of the outer layer of a papaya. Once you have a strip, apply it to your face with a swiping movement just like how you swipe your face with a cotton ball or a swab of make-up remover. Don’t waste the remaining papaya. Since you’ll only need a strip of the outer layer, enjoy eating the rest of the papaya. Your skin and your overall health would be benefited as papayas are packed with fiber, potassium, Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
