Benefits of Papaya for skin


Well, I talked about the benefits of Apple on skin last time. Today, I would be talking about another very nutritious fruit "Papaya". Papaya is the best bet when it comes to skin care. It is a good source of Vitamin A and papain. Vitamin A acts as an anti-oxidant, while the papain breaks down inactive proteins and removes dead skin cells. The best feature of the fruit is its low sodium quality.Since the salt content is less, the water retention is also little. The result is an overall hydrated skin. 
  • Papaya is abundant in anti-oxidants due to the huge concentration of Vitamin A
  • 'Papain' in Papaya is helpful in removing the dead skin cells so applying papaya on the skin will exfoliate your skin in the most gentle and natural way
  • Use mashed papaya for cracked and sore heels
  • Rub the Papaya peel on your face after eating the papaya. Let it stay for no more than 5 minutes and wash off with cold water. The AHA's (alpha-hydroxy acids), which are the most coveted ingredients of today for their anti-aging properties, are in abundance in Papaya which makes it an acidic fruit. If you apply Papaya for more time, it would cause dryness and might even irritate sensitive skins. 
  • Papaya is a great skin-firming and anti-aging mask. Mash the uneaten Papaya with or without milk and apply on your face. It helps in removing blemishes, dark spots, evens out your skin tone and brings a glow to your face.
  • Papaya is, again, a natural exfoliator.
  • Mix mashed Papaya with honey for a hydrating skin mask.

  1. Raw papaya is also recovered alternative for treating ringworm. Rub some slices of papaya on the ringworm patches. A paste made of dried papaya seeds can also be applied on the ringworm patches.

  2. thank you i started using papaya a few days a go there's a great improvement on my sports i bet i will keep using it for sometimes
    i also find a mixture of lemon and few drops of honey very helpful on my sensitive skin

    ReplyDelete
  3. yeah papaya does help with dark spots and blemishes but you should not use papaya everyday....it has high concentration of AHA which is pretty strong for skin to be used everyday so use it once or twice a week...that will be more than enough and you can use lemon + honey every alternate day...hope this helps :)

  6. What can i do to remove all my dark spots on my face, for how many days should i use papaya in order to get back my skin as before? i HAD Pimples and this had left dark spots on my face. Help me pleas to tighten my face also. What can i use?

    ReplyDelete

    1. hey....you should not apply papaya everyday on the face!!! its highly acidic so it can harm the skin so apply papaya on the face two-three times a week mixed with clay or some other base so that its not entirely concentrated. it does take a bit of time to show results but you should immediate brightening of face from the first application. it will take almost a month to show difference in blemishes and spots but they will eventually go.
      another tip for spots is potato slices. rub a thin potato slice on the spots everyday and wash off after the juice dries. this will again take time to show result. but, potato helps with tanning, scars and lightening of the complexion.
      and, for skin tightening, aloevera gel or egg white are the best masks. take aloevera gel straight from the plant and apply it every night as a moisturiser. or, you can also take egg white and apply it as a face mask. it helps with tightening of the skin and wrinkles. hope this helps :)

    2. I don't think that the seeds have the benefits that the pulp and the skin have. My dad used papaya as a meat tenderizer. Mix a chunk of papaya with water in the blender to make a smoothie, add it to the meat and let it sit for no more than 40 mintues as the meat will disintegrate. I have been doing this to all meats since I can remember

    1. no, you can't use fruit for such a thing. no, egg white also just firms up the skin but doesn't lift the cheeks or anything. and, its temporary only and the effect will stay only for some hours at max. but, no it doesn't loosen the skin any further of you are afraid of :)
      but, yes, aloevera does help with firming up the skin on regular usage. no immediate effects though.

    Replies
    1. hmmm...i know what you did coz i did the same....apply neosporin on the wound...is it still a wound or has it healed and just left a scar??? no, there is nothing you can do for acne due to hormonal changes so leave it as it is and don't pick!!! use potato slices on the scar every night. rub the slice and leave it to dry and wash off. papaya can also help but the skin there is sensitive so better to use something alkaline and not acidic. it can take anytime from 1 week to 1 month. mine took almost 3 weeks to heal completely.

      Delete
    2. hey thanks fr quick reply Swati... it happened 3months back,so right nw its just an ugly scar. but as a result of squeeze,im getting new acne near to the scar.
      Will surely try the potato tip... im presently applying a paste of sandalwood {i hv a block :D } and mix with rose water n apply every night before sleeping. It does make my skin smooth but too early to comment abt its effect on scar as its been only 1week.

    3. hey Shilpa...lemme make one thing very clear...the area where you had the acne would remain sensitive for life so take good care of that area and don't let anything happen there coz mine also breaks out at the point where i squeezed mine. so don't even try to itch when you feel that way. the sandalwood paste does help but it will take time :) do lemme know how it goes :)

      Delete
    4. ya i guess u r right...it does keep breaking out in same area no matter how clean i keep my skin.

    1. yes papaya helps in lightening the areas so you can use it till you achieve the desired color by applying it on alternate days and then you can preserve the skin color by maintaining the skin. also, use sunscreen in the day time to avoid getting tanned and prevent melanin multiplication!

    1. yes you can use papaya on your son as well. just make sure to wash it off within 5-10 mins as papaya is very acidic. and, this applies to all skin types - child and adults.

  76. I have been using raw organic shea butter from Nubian Heritage that has been blended with coconut oil and papaya (papain)extract. It has done wonders for my face! It has tremendously softened and evened out my complexion. My question to you is: Does papaya seed oil have the same levels of papain as the fruit does? The papain is what I'm after as it seems to have been the miracle ingredient in the product. I want to be able to add the papain to the skincare products I use on other parts of my body. Oil seems easiest as it won't go bad, but I don't want to purchase the oil if the papain is in the fruit and not in the oil. Please advise.

    1. hey...honestly i am not sure of the answer. but, you can definitely give it a try. actually how the oil has been extracted has a lot to do with the nutrition elements in it. i would suggest you to try a small sample of the oil if available!

  77. does eating papaya gives a fairer skin complexion

    ReplyDelete
  78. I used papaya over my face regularly & i am very happy with the results. Skin looks clear, fair and bright. My question is how can I keep continue this effect without using papaya on daily basis because as soon I stop putting papaya over my face for 1-2 days it started getting back in older texture. Can anybody help me to prolong the papaya effects over my skin.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. do not use papaya on a daily basis. it is very acidic. use it on alternate days if you have oily skin and twice a week if you have normal or dry skin. that ways the skin would also remain fine. and, apply watermelon or other fruits as well. use hydrating fruits like watermelon or cucumber when you are not using papaya.

  79. hey swati, nice blog:-)
    i hv oily skin and sensitive skin, i hv acne scars left by pimples just on my cheeks no where else. and rednesss on my cheeks. so what should i use patato juice or papaya?
    can potato juice be applied every day.?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. you can use potato everyday and papaya only twice a week. it will help with the oiliness and not make the skin extra-sensitive. also remember that do not use payaya for more than 10 minutes on the skin. it is very acidic.

    1. i don't know about the unripe papaya and papaya shouldn't be applied everyday. it is very acidic so it should be used sparingly so instead apply potato for the scars.
