Lemon & Papaya Face Mask For Dark Spot Treatment

Lemon and Papaya are popular fruits which has different taste but they both contains antioxidants which is helpful in keeping our body healthy. These fruits can be eaten raw or combined with our favorite dishes but did you know that are also used in some homemade beauty treatments?

In this article you will learn how to do it and see how these fruits can effectively eliminate dark spots in your face while keeping your skin moisturized and healthy.

Before we start with the process, you need to prepare the following ingredients:

- Half size soft ripe papaya
- ½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Papaya contains a powerful enzyme called papain which is effective in exfoliating your skin and at the same time acts as natural moisturizer to keep your skin smooth and soft while doing the process. On the other hand lemon will work hand-in-hand with papaya to decrease and prevent the appearance of depigmentation. These two ingredients are also useful to give your skin that fresh and glowing look.

To enjoy this facial mask, you may follow the instructions below:

1. Mash the soft ripe papaya in a clean bowl using spoon or fork.

2. Add the freshly squeezed lemon juice to create a creamy paste mixture.

3. Gently apply the paste all over your skin and your neck. Avoid the eye area because the skin in this part is sensitive. You may also perform the so-called spot treatment wherein you will just apply the product on the area of your face where the dark spot is visible.

4. Let the paste sit on your face for 15 – 20 minutes depending on the sensitivity of your skin. If you have experienced severe tingling sensation while doing this step, immediately rinse off your face with clean water.

5. Don’t forget to apply your favorite moisturizer or face serum after you dry your face with a cotton towel.
