Papaya: A natural ingredient with multiple benefits for your skin

Papaya is one of the most anti-inflammatory fruits recommended by Doctors and other practitioners before and after undergoing aesthetic and cosmetic treatments. It is rich in Vitamin C & A A and can help prevent cardiovascular diseases, obesity, and even hypertension. 

Not only can it do wonders for your skin but also your hair but it can also be used as a mask and will provide shine and make your hair smooth. 

Here we will mention some benefits of adding papaya as an active ingredient in your skincare routine:

  • Prevention and reduction of wrinkles: Papaya is rich in antioxidants, making it a perfect anti-aging ingredient. It can also increase collagen and elastin production, preventing sagginess and fine lines.
  • Exfoliation: Papaya is rich in “Papain,” an enzyme that works as an exfoliant removing the superficial dead skin layer.
  • Acne prevention: Contains flavonoids and other ingredients able to control the oil production and kill bacteria on your face. 
  • Promotes hydration.

What type of products with papaya can I use?

You can find masks that you can apply once a week; most of them are known as “Enzymatic Peelings,” and they will give you a gentle exfoliation that can be used on every skin type and will leave you with smooth and bright skin
