Yes. Well, I talked about the benefits of Apple on skin last time. Today, I would be talking about another very nutritious fruit "Papaya". Papaya is the best bet when it comes to skin care. It is a good source of Vitamin A and papain. Vitamin A acts as an anti-oxidant, while the papain breaks down inactive proteins and removes dead skin cells. The best feature of the fruit is its low sodium quality.Since the salt content is less, the water retention is also little. The result is an overall hydrated skin.
Papaya is abundant in anti-oxidants due to the huge concentration of Vitamin A
'Papain' in Papaya is helpful in removing the dead skin cells so applying papaya on the skin will exfoliate your skin in the most gentle and natural way
Use mashed papaya for cracked and sore heels
Rub the Papaya peel on your face after eating the papaya. Let it stay for no more than 5 minutes and wash off with cold water. The AHA's (alpha-hydroxy acids), which are the most coveted ingredients of today ...more

Papaya has become known as a leading ingredient in skin whitening products because it contains papain, a natural enzyme that promotes skin renewal and cell turnover. It helps in exfoliating the skin to reveal newer cells, and has restorative properties that soften the skin.

Papaya is very beneficial for natural skin care and repair as it is the most nutritious fruits in the world, full of enzymes, minerals and vitamins-with more vitamin A than carrots and more C than oranges and low in calories!

Papaya can be used to treat or remove old dead skin cells, dandruff and other skin disorders, and even to reduce the signs of premature aging.

Skin - Papaya is good for all skin type but oily skin gets more benefited. To use it on your skin you just need to mash it and use on your skin. People who have oily skin can add fuller earth (multani mitti) and apply on your face. Wash it after 15-20 minutes. It frees the skin from dullness and protect out skin from UV rays.

Wrinkles - Old skin cells make wrinkles deeper. Use a papaya powder face mask to reduce old dead skin cells and make the skin smoother. Apply the fleshy side of the skin from a green papaya.

Digesting - Eating papaya supports the treatment internally by improving digestive health.

Papaya is a tropical fruit that is often eaten whole or mixed into smoothies, salsas, ice cream or salads. Papaya is also added to some hair and skin care products. Many of the beauty benefits of papaya can be achieved by buying and using the fruit directly rather than in a processed form.

Soften the Face
Papaya contains chemicals known as beta hydroxy acids, or BHAs. BHAs act as exfoliants, according to Encyclopedia.com. Papaya's ability to remove the top layers of the skin leaves fresh new skin exposed, resulting in a softer, smoother appearance. Papaya also clears away dirt and oils that contribute to acne flare-ups thanks to its BHA content. To use, simply apply a thin layer of papaya to your skin and allow to remain on your skin for several minutes before rinsing it off. Another benefit to papayas is that its BHA is thought to be less irritating than alpha hydroxy acid, another commonly used class of exfoliant. Papaya might cause allergies in some people and increase sun sensi ...more
