Today’s #beautysecret is on how to get smooth and soft skin using pineapple and papaya mask.
Many exfoliants contain abrasive ingredients that scratch your skin, which may damage the skin and speed signs of aging. Instead, it’s better to use an enzymatic exfoliant. Papaya contains the natural enzyme papain, and pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain, which helps naturally exfoliate the skin to leave it smooth and soft. Greener (unripe) papayas have higher amounts of papain, so opt for these to get the best benefit. If you have sensitive skin, use ripe papayas as they are less likely to trigger an inflammatory reaction.
Scoop out a ¼ cup raw papaya flesh and blend with 1 Tablespoon fresh pineapple until smooth. Apply to skin after a bath and leave on for 15 minutes. Then rinse with cool water. The alpha hydroxy acids and the enzymes in this recipe dissolve dry, dead skin. You only need to do this once or twice per week.
