This papaya face pack for pigmentation and skin whitening also helps remove tan and heal sun burnt skin. Adjust the recipe according to your skin type.
This is an easy to make recipe that works on many skin problems. The difference can be felt in a single use. The skin appears soft, smooth, calm and bright. It may take some time for it to show results on hyper pigmentation though.

In case you are super busy or away from home, Choose from the below as per for your skin type 🙂
- Papaya mashed – 1 table spoon
- Rice flour – 1 to 1.5 teaspoon
- Curd/Yogurt – 2 tablespoon
- Lemon Juice – 1 teaspoon
Sensitive skin should stay away from lemon juice.
I am using thick set curd here. That is why i am using two tablespoons of it. If the curd you are using is not as thick, then you may need to adjust the amount and add less curd.

Sensitive skin beauties should stay away from unripe papaya as the high enzyme concentration may cause irritation or allergies.
I usually blend papaya in a mixer grinder like below and refrigerate it for a long time. 🙂
Benefits of Lemon Juice
- Anti bacterial
- Natural skin brightener

Lemon juice has the tendency to dry out your skin so moisturise afterwards if needed.
Skin Type- Normal Sensitive
Hyderabad and Chennai are two of the most hottest places we have. I recently had an unavoidable trip to these places for government purposes. After the trip, both of our faces(mom and mine) were red, bumpy, tanned and dull because of sun burn. We used sunscreen at regular intervals though. Even my skin broke out near my chin. It was the worst experience.
My husband did not get tanned but his skin was again irritated, red and bumpy just like mine. We are not used to such harsh climate i guess.
Both of us decided to use papaya face pack for tan removal, soothing and healing our sun burnt skin and for overall skin brightening. It has been two weeks since then. My skin has been healed and the skin colour also went back to normal. The redness and burning sensation on my sensitive skin calmed down in a 1-2 uses. There is an instant brightening effect whenever i use this face pack.
The breakouts also dried without leaving any marks behind. But i did apply Faceclin gel on them after washing the face pack and followed up with sunscreen.
If you are planning to use papaya face pack everyday, Keep in mind that it may not be a good idea to use lemon juice daily. It might make your skin hyper sensitive to UV rays. Use sunscreen religiously to protect your skin and prevent sun damage.
Use lemon juice 3-4 times a week. The rest of the ingredients can be used everyday without any problems.
