- Finely crush the flesh of a papaya and apply the pulp to your face, avoiding the areas around your eyes and mouth.
- If your skin is dry and sensitive, apply the papaya only to the affected areas. Keep on for 15 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
- Warning! Some people are allergic to papain and can develop skin irritations when they come in contact with the fruit.
In Jamaica, it is common to squeeze the juice of a green papaya over a wart or corn, repeating the procedure several times a day for 5 to 7 days. The sticky accumulation will begin to wrinkle up and will eventually fall off by itself, leaving healthy skin.
