A 15-minute treatment that will result in soft, glowing skin. Easy to make at home, luxurious to use and quite a lot less expensive than the beauty salon. Here's how you do it:
Assemble the "Things You'll Need".
Rub a piece of cut papaya flesh on your face and neck.
Let the rubbed-on papaya sit for 15 minutes.
Rinse off with warm water.
Rinse again with cool water. This will close the pores.
at your skin dry with a towel. See "Tips" for this method.
Touch your face and feel the difference. Your face should feel and look much more radiant.
Touch up with some moisturizer if needed. If your face feels dry, just apply toner/moisturizer. Use as natural a moisturizer if possible.
* Always pat dry with a towel. Rubbing can easily break the small capillaries under the facial skin and cause redness and fine "spider lines" if you have skin prone to this. Rubbing may also cause bacteria to spread; theoretically, this might lead to spreading pimples, although acne is more likely to be caused by dietary or genetic afflictions.
* Don't use this remedy if you are allergic to papaya or other tropical fruit, such as mango.
* Avoid touching your face too often as this will transfer the oils from your hands to your face, making it oily and irritated.
