As if its sweetness and rich flavors are not enough to make them irresistible, here is yet another feather to the crown of Papaya – it is a great skin whitening agent. Eating papaya daily can give you a lighter complexion and add glow to your skin. You can also make a mask out of it. Crush a slice of papaya and add in some lemon juice. Spread evenly onto your face and wait for 20 minutes before washing it off.
