Papaya Face Pack For Glowing Skin And Lightening Dark Spots

Papaya is rich in Vitamin A, C, B9, B1, B3, B5, E and K. Potassium, and has minerals like calcium, magnesium and vitamins. That is exactly why you should try this papaya face pack which helps fight free radical damage and oxidative stress.

These complex words means that papaya helps prevent sun damage, premature ageing and oxidative stress from environmental pollution. Remember, Sun damage and oxidative stress have a great influence in ageing our skin.

Without proper skin care, you could end up with fine lines and other signs of premature ageing even in your teens. 🙁

Remove the tomato skin as it may contain residual pesticides.

You may use the skin if the tomato’s are home grown. People sometimes end up with skin allergy and other skin problems even when they are using calming, soothing ingredients on their face. That is because of the chemicals present in them or on their skin.

Clean vegetables and fruits thoroughly to get rid of pesticides. Although i still would not recommend using the outer layer of vegetables and fruits in face packs.

Normal-Dry Skin : Do not use chickpea flour, Fuller’s earth or any kind of clay on a daily basis as it may dry out your skin making it look dull and rough.

Tomato is rich in Lycopene, Vitamin A,C, Sodium, Potassium and has the minerals calcium and iron in it. Lycopene is antiinflammatory and prevents clogged pores and hence reduces acne breakouts. Tomato helps balance Ph of the skin and has skin lightening properties too.


Honey is great for all skin types. It is anti bacterial, antiseptic and abundant in antioxidants. Honey helps moisturise the skin, reduces acne, tightens pores, soothes irritated skin and prevents premature ageing of the skin.

Besan\Chickpea flour

Prevents and treats acne as it has zinc in it, fades sun tan and brightens skin, acts as a good exfoliator and helps get rid of dead skin cells. Finally, long term use of besan is known to remove facial hair.

Raw Milk

Because raw Milk has Vitamin B and is rich in antioxidants, It is extremely beneficial to the skin. Raw milk prevents acne, controls excess sebum while providing sufficient hydration to the skin.

The alpha hydroxy acids ( Lactic acid) in milk gently exfoliates the skin and helps in maintaining a  youthful and glowing skin.
