Scars on your face can be quite unsightly and in some cases may even affect you emotionally. But whatever the reason for that scar, know that there is a simple natural remedy that can help lighten them and heal the area. Here's how raw papaya can help you get rid of scars on your face.

How it works

Papaya has a very potent component called papain that is very effective in getting rid of scars. Not only does it have anti-inflammatory properties, but it also helps lighten scars by reducing the amount of melanin in the area (melanin is the skin pigment that makes the area a scar forms darker than the rest of your skin).
