Fresh juicy fruits don’t just have to be a treat for your tastebuds, it can be a treat for your skin as well. Tropical fruits are generally very beneficial to your skin and papaya is no exception to it. This pulpy orange colour fruit can be your key to a beautiful radiant skin. Let’s discuss some of its unique qualities in detail:


Rich in antioxidants- Papaya is rich in several antioxidants, including lycopene, which can help reduce damage to the skin cells that are typically caused by free radicals. Skin that is less damaged tends to look smoother and younger, meaning papaya may help slow down the overall aging process, too.


  1. Loaded with helpful enzymes- Papaya is often eaten for its digestive benefits which are attributed to the unique enzymes it contains. These same enzymes (namely papain and chymopapain) may be able to bring down the sensitivity on the surface of the skin. These can also aid in removing dead skin cells which can clog up your pores and cause skin concerns.


  2. A wonderful source of vitamin A- Papaya is a natural source of vitamin A, an essential nutrient which the body needs to maintain the skin, eyes, and immune system. When it comes to the complexion, vitamin A (in the form of retinol) can help stimulate new skin cells. This, in turn, will make your skin appear smoother and less dry. Papaya extract has long been used in skincare products which are designed to hydrate or minimize the appearance of scarring and stretch marks.


  3. Papaya for pigmentation-free skin- Papaya has excellent exfoliating properties. Therefore, it helps to eliminate dead skin cells and encourages new cell growth by treating Hyperpigmentation. Not only this, beta-carotene, enzymes, and phytochemicals found in papaya improves your complexion.
