Benefits of Papaya

Perk up your skin and eliminate the day’s worries with papaya. It’s beneficial for skin care and repair. You can use papaya to treat or eliminate old dead skin cells, dandruff and other skin disorders and even to reduce the signs of premature aging.

The following recipes will show you how:

Apply a mask using the fleshy side of a green papaya skin on the acne. A papaya diet supports the treatment internally. Apply a mask of pickled grated papaya in vinegar once a week. Dilute papaya vinegar with water in a one to 10 ratio and use it as a skin cleanser. Treat stubborn areas with undiluted papaya vinegar and papaya oil.

Age spots:
Place the fleshy side of the skin from a mature green papaya onto the age spots until the spots fade.
Dandruff: Shampoo hair with diluted papaya vinegar mixed with lemon juice and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse the hair with diluted papaya vinegar. Papaya hair shampoos are also available in health food stores. Skin with enlarged pores: Washings or compresses with diluted papaya vinegar.

Skin, rough:
Native Americans rub rough skin with the fleshy side of the skin from a ripe papaya.

Skin, unclear:
For deep skin cleansing, apply a papaya mask followed by an application of papaya vinegar weekly, diluted with water in a one to 10 ratio.

Apply the fleshy side of the skin from a green fruit to the spots. Also apply papaya vinegar to the spots.

Old skin cells make wrinkles deeper. Use a papaya powder (sold in health food stores as "Paw-Paw Condiment") face mask to reduce old dead skin cells and to make the skin smoother. Apply the fleshy side of the skin from a green papaya. In rare cases and with long-term application, highly concentrated papaya could cause sensitivity and skin irritation.
