Papaya peels offer a more gentle solution that can be incorporated into a regular skincare regimen. This enzyme treatments can speed up natural chemical reactions in the skin that renew skin cells while exfoliating dead cells. Enzymes are also reported to diminish scars, age spots, fine lines, and discoloration, and may also penetrate the skin to cleanse pores and improve skin tone and texture. The most amazing thing about papaya peels is that they do not damage or remove live tissue! They exfoliate ONLY dead cells, which is a big reason why papaya peels are great for nearly all skin types. Because there is no injury to live skin, there’s no down time – so no hiding out in the dark at home for days on end!
Devotees of papaya peels love the immediate, visible results of these skincare treatments. Enzyme peels can be found from papaya, bromelain from pineapple, pumpkin pulp, or mucor miehei extract from Japanese mushrooms. Most people can use these enzymes daily to refresh skin and prepare it for proper hydration.
