Skin Health Series

Papaya is an amazing powerhouse for your skin, overall health and wellbeing. 

The enzyme papain present in papaya gives your body a sparkling cleanse from the inside out. 

A study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that raw papaya has exceptional amounts of carotenoids, in fact, more than carrots and tomatoes.  Carotenoids act as antioxidants in the body which help to deactivate free radicals.  Free radicals can come from pollution in the air, environment and also the foods we eat; and are known to play a substantial role in premature ageing. 

Also, the carotenoids in Papaya particularly, are converted by the body into vitamin A, which is essential for healthy glowing skin, eye health, and is known to help clear acne.  Papaya also has an anti-inflammatory and immune system benefits which are perfect for skin types such as rosacea and inflamed acne.

Your skin is the largest organ of your body.  By boosting your diet with rich antioxidant full and vitamin-rich foods you will be able to maintain a healthy glow all year round.
