The Benefits of Papaya for Skin
Updated: Feb 5
What is Papaya Enzyme and how can it help my skin?
The papaya is an incredibly healthy tropical fruit. It’s loaded with antioxidants that can reduce inflammation, fight disease and help fight signs of aging.
There is a powerful enzyme in papaya called papain. Papain promotes healing of the skin and enhances the secretion of collagen when applied topically. Collagen is a primary skin component that keeps the skin healthy and enhances skin elasticity. Collagen helps to reduce wrinkles and increase skin hydration. Other antioxidants in papaya inhibit the production of free radicals to reduce and reverse the signs of aging. The ingredients in papaya also help bring a natural shine and improve your skin's texture.
Benefits of Papaya for Skin
Treats Skin Pigmentation
Papaya is a miracle ingredient that can clear out the scars and uneven pigmentation on the skin. The skin lightening properties of the fruit help to reduce blemishes and pigmentation. The enzyme papain in papaya acts as a strong exfoliator and removes dead cells, which can make the face lighter in tone and more supple. In addition, the abundance of beta-carotene and plant compounds present in papaya enhances the skin's glow and complexion.
Papaya is indeed a boon in treating dry skin issues and helps to hydrate your skin. The rich array of antioxidants and enzymes present in papaya help treat dry and flaky skin.
The richness of carotenoids, the potent antioxidants in papaya, help fight free radical damage and prevent the break down of collagen and elastin, which can tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles. Even the skin of the papaya contains enzymes that can be rubbed on your skin to remove dead cells and age spots.
Treats Skin Diseases
Papaya is a natural remedy to heal scars, burns and skin diseases for ages. The enzyme papain exfoliates the dead skin cells and eases skin impurities. Papaya pulp has been used to cure skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis and also prevent itching and reduces redness.
