When it comes to caring for your skin it seems there is an endless array of products available, but have you considered paw paw?

With so many products, your cosmetic drawer can easily become overcrowded. Tubs, tubes, tins and pots start invading every space, until your bathroom looks like a multi-coloured bomb has exploded.

Wouldn’t it be great if one product had multiple uses? A variety of benefits? It would certainly serve to free up some space.

What if we told you that there is such an item?

Paw paw ointment is the all-rounder of the beauty world. With incredible qualities, this wonder-fruit has some pretty amazing uses.

Here are some different ways you may incorporate it into your daily beauty routine.

Eyeshadow Primer

Did you know paw paw can work as an eyeshadow primer?

Eyeshadow primers are staple in any makeup lover’s beauty kit, helping to keep the shades in place no matter what the day throws at you.

With a sumptuous feel, applying a small layer of ointment to your eyelids and leaving it to dry before applying your shadow may help to hold your makeup in place, as well as increase its blending potential.

Face Mask

A face mask is a tried-and-true way to revitalise your skin and a relaxing step in many nighttime routines.

When your lips are dry or cracked from the elements, your paw paw may be the first thing you reach for. So, why not try the same for your face?

Simply apply to your face after gently exfoliating, leave on for five minutes, and remove with a warm cloth, to enjoy the re-hydrating feeling and rejuvenated appearance that follows.

Hair Mask

If you have dry or coarse hair, or it’s damaged due to too much colouring, paw paw may help revitalise the its appearance.

Apply the ointment to your dry ends and leave it to work its magic. Not only can this help to make your hair appear healthier, it can also help you to reduce flyaways and frizz.


Cuticles got you down? Massage the ointment into your nail bed, and leave it to sit for a couple of minutes to soften those troublesome cuticles.

All that’s left to do is push your freshly softened cuticles back for a quick and easy manicure!

Eye Cream

After a long day or night, using eye cream can be especially helpful for the delicate skin below/around your eyes.

Apply some ointment on the skin around the eyes before you sleep so you wake up with the appearance of revitalised skin.

Foot Treatment

The last thing you want to see when you’re wearing your new fabulous shoes is your dry, cracking heels staring back at you.

Apply the ointment to your feet, you help to moisturise and soften the dry areas.

Top tip: use a pumice to exfoliate away the dead skin before applying your foot mask.
