Papaya is probably one of the best tasting fruits on the planet; when every I get a fruit cup, i always eat the papaya first! Besides tasting incredible, papaya is extremely healthy, especially when it comes to skin. Keep reading, and I’ll tell you why.
Papaya is full of enzymes. The enzyme Papain extremely useful in skin care, because it has proven to be a very powerful exfoliant. Papain is said to be most potent in green papayas, in the fruit closest to the skin.Papain is a chemical, or non-mechanical exfoliant. This means that is can slough away dead skin cells without the help of exfoliating beads. This is extremely good news for people with thin skin, or highly irritable skin because you can get optimal results, without irritating your skin with exfoliating beads. On the other hand, if you are obsessed with exfoliating beads and you need to have them, you can make an at-home papaya exfoliator by blending together the fruit closest to the skin, and some of the seeds in the middle. Even though this might only last for one day. it’s still a fun and inexpensive way to exfoliate.
My favorite papaya product is the Papaya Exfoliator. I like this one because it’s safe enough to use everyday without irritation, and strong enough to give me fast results!
