Yes, Papaya. If you've heard papaya is good for skin, you've heard correct! But, filipino women take it a step higher and use papaya directly on their skin to lighten dark areas like elbows, Kees and armpits. It's enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids lessen pigmentation and smoothen the skin. Just mash the fruit and apply the puree directly on areas that you feel need lightening.
