Ingredients Required:

  • Papaya
  • Half a cup of sea salt
  • Olive oil (optional)

Method Of Application:

Cut the papaya and blend it in a mixer or food processor till you obtain its paste.

Papaya has anti-inflammatory properties and is known to really help in fighting blemishes.

And it also has vitamin C, which is really good for the skin.

Mix the paste of the papaya with the salt till it's grainy in nature. If the acne is severe, no oil should be added because it could further clog the follicles.

However, if you're using the scrub for very mild acne, adding the oil (olive oil) into the mix is a good idea. Otherwise, I would suggest you to not do so.

Use this scrub only on the body, as salt can be too abrasive for the gentle skin of the face.

Once you get the grainy mixture, apply it on the back and massage for a while. Wait for a few minutes and rinse the area thoroughly when done. Use the scrub once a week.

With regular use, you could finally say goodbye to back acne!
