Papayas contain a protein dissolving enzyme called papain which is used to dissolve upper layer of dead skin cells. Papaya fruit pulp and the enzyme papain are widely used as an exfoliating agent in many beauty products. The Vitamin A present in papaya nourishes the skin, reduces wrinkles and accelerates the formation of healthy new cells.
Take a few pieces of papaya and smash them well to remove any lumps. Donot add water or any other ingredient. Apply the pulp on your face and leave it for about 15 minutes. Rinse with water.
