Using a knife, peel and chop the papaya into small cubes. Use a fork to mash the cubes into a thick, juicy papaya pulp.
Grate a knuckle-sized piece of raw turmeric root using the smallest holes. This will give you zest-sized pieces, which you can mix into the papaya pulp. Mix the pulp well to ensure the turmeric is properly absorbed, and apply the paste to the body parts with unwanted hair.
Gently massage the pulp into your skin, and let it sit for up to 20 minutes. Once the time has passed, rinse the pulp from your skin with warm water. There may be a bit of yellowing of your skin (the result of the turmeric), but it will fade in a few days.
This is a remedy to repeat once or twice a week. Once the body hair has lightened, you can shave/wax. Give your skin a day to recover, then apply the mixture again. Keep applying it regularly, and you may not have to worry about waxing or shaving for a long time!
