- The skin from one green papaya
The easiest of DIY beauty treatments; this miracle of nature treatment can be used on the face and neck for younger looking skin, the back of the hands to correct age spots or anywhere else on the body you need a peel. Simply work the fleshy part of the papaya skin over the area of the body you wish to treat, leave the residue from the flesh on the skin for 10-15 minutes and rinse well and follow with your preferred moisturiser for perfect peeling.
