Papaya has rightly been named as the “angel fruit” due to its versatile utilities and properties. It is a wholesome and nutritive fruit which is a rich source of vitamin A and vitamin C. It contains a special enzyme called “papain” that removes dead cells and cures skin impurities. High in healing enzymes, papaya can be also used to treat sunburns or irritated skin.

a. Soften the face:

Ripe papaya contains BHA or beta hydroxy acid which act as a mild exfoliater. This gently removes the top dead cells of the face and gives a radiant and younger looking skin. It also clears the dirt and oil that can lead to acne and break outs on the face.

Papaya contains high level of vitamins A and C. Vitamin C is an anti oxidant that reduces the formation of free radicals which are responsible for aging. The flavanoids in papaya help in increase the collagen production in the skin which keeps the skin soft, firm and supple.
