Homemade Papaya Face Pack For Glowing Skin

Hello Ladies,

I was feeling a little unwell today, so decided to take a break from office and rest at home. To make sure, I don’t stay starving at home, husband dear kept some papaya cubes for me in the fridge. When I was eating papaya for lunch, I just felt like making a papaya face pack for myself.  We all know papaya has many health and beauty benefits.  The enzyme “papain” in papaya is helpful in removing dead skin cells so applying papaya on the skin exfoliates skin in the most gentle and natural way. Papaya is an extremely rich source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A , antioxidants, folate, panthothenic acid, potassium, magnesium etc, which is why it is such a beneficial skin food.

Homemade Papaya Face Pack For Glowing Skin

So, here is the recipe of my papaya face mask:

Take a few pieces of papaya in a bowl.  Now, add one full spoon of sandalwood powder. If sandalwood powder is not available, you can use Fuller’s Earth (Multani Mitti) also.

Then, add a spoon full of honey to it.

Now, mix all the ingredients together and try to get a paste-like consistency by gently mashing the papaya with the help of the spoon.

Once everything is mixed, your face mask is ready.  Apply it evenly on clean face; let it set for 20 minutes on your face. Then, wash it off with water.  You will get clean, smooth and glowing face. This works best for oily skin as sandalwood or Fuller’s Earth absorbs excess oil from the skin and makes skin clean and glowing.

This is just one way of making the papaya face mask, but there are some other ways also to make papaya face masks according to your skin needs, which I am listing down here:

  • Take papaya pieces in a bowl; add 1-2 spoons of milk and 1 spoon of honey in it. Mix everything together to get a smooth paste. Apply on clean face, let it dry for 20-25 minutes, and then wash off. This is good for dry skin beauties.
  • Take papaya pieces in a bowl, add a spoon of fresh aloe vera gel in it (if you don’t have aloe vera plant at home, use aloe vera gel available in stores), then add honey to it. Mix everything together to get a smooth paste. Apply on a clean face, keep it on for 20-25 minutes, and then wash off. This one works well for all skin types.
  • Take raw papaya (grated papaya) and apply it evenly on face.  Keep it for 10 minutes and then wash off with water. Raw papaya helps in controlling acne and cleans clogged pores.
  • If you are very tired or lazy to make any face mask, then just apply the ripe papaya pulp on your face. Let it dry for 20 minutes and then wash off to get clean skin.

So, the next time you eat papaya, just save a few pieces and treat yourself with your favourite papaya face mask.
