3 Different Papaya Face Packs For All Skin Problems
#1 Papaya Face Pack for Oily Skin:
- Again, papaya – all by itself – is an excellent exfoliator and can remove dead cells and absorb excess oil.
- But if your skin is extremely oily, you might want to combine it with a tablespoon of fuller’s earth (multani mitti) – the go-to favourite for those with oily skin.
- Add rosewater to make a paste, apply it on the face and leave it on till it dries.
- This papaya facial for oily skin will make your face smooth, dry and spotless on regular application.
#2 Papaya and Egg White for Skin Tightening:
Skin may loosen for various reasons from excessive waxing and threading to ageing, but here’s a super-easy way to keep that in check:
- Chop your papaya into small bits, separate the white of one egg and mix it with your papaya to create a sticky mixture.
- Spread this on your face and allow it to dry.
- You should feel your skin tightening in a few minutes.
- When it’s completely dry, wash your face gently and feel your skin getting firmer by the day.
- What’s more, egg white does not moisturize so you’re in good hands if what you’re looking for is a skin tightening pack for oily skin.
#3 Papaya Face Pack for Glowing Skin:
- You’re going to need oranges for this one.
- Chop up your papaya and squeeze the juice out of one orange.
- Make a paste and apply the papaya fruit face pack.
- Orange being a citrus fruit, acts as a natural astringent and keeps the skin dry. Plus, it’s loaded with Vitamin C and is excellent when used with papaya for spot and blemish reduction, and of course, to give you that instant glow.
- You may also substitute orange juice for lemon juice for instant skin brightening, provided your skin isn’t too sensitive.
