Papaya has the ability to exfoliate damaged and dead skin cells. Exfoliating the skin removes the cells that cause clogged pores that can result in frequent acne breakouts. The fruit, seeds, skin and leaves of the papaya are all rich in essential enzymes that give this fruit an outstanding medicinal property for the treatment of skin conditions. The fruit is rich in enzyme Papain, which has been proven to whiten and soften the skin, and has been effectively used to hasten the healing of skin. The juice of raw papaya is known to prevent clogged pores and pus formation and therefore is beneficial in the treatment of acne. Papain has also been shown to be helpful in removing brown spots due to sun exposure. Apart from its direct effect on the skin, Papaya is also good for digestion and facilitates the elimination of toxins. Although papayas can be consumed or used easily as home remedies, skin allergies cannot be ruled out. People with problem skin can develop a rash and therefore a patch test on a small area of the skin should always be done to rule out allergy.
