Beauty Benefits of Papaya:

Papaya or Papita is not only good for health but is a wonder fruit when we talk about its various beauty benefits. According to Google, Papaya is also called as “The Fruit of the Angels” and is one of such fruits that are available through-out the year. Not only the Papaya fruit but other parts of it are also very good for skin, hair and health. It contains an enzyme called ‘Papain’ which helps in breaking inactive proteins and also aids in the removal of dead skin cells.

Along with the Papain enzymes, it is also a very good source of antioxidants and nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B, carotenes, and flavonoids. Along with these ingredients it is also a rich source of fiber and minerals like magnesium and potassium, and due to all these wonder constituents the skin becomes soft, supple and shines everlastingly with the application or consumption of papaya on a regular basis. Low sodium quality of papaya helps in retaining water and always keeps your skin hydrated.
