Papaya or Pineapple for the Skin – Enzyme Formulas

Both papaya and pineapple contain enzymes that soften and heal the skin.

The enzymes in these fruits fight free-radical damage and are known to reduce age spots and fine lines and leave the skin supple. They also cleanse the skin by dissolving dead cells from the skin’s surface.

Here is how to use these healing fruits on your skin:

1 slice green papaya or 1 tablespoon papaya juice


1 slice ripe pineapple or 1 tablespoon pineapple juice

Massage the fruit or juice onto your face. Although the fruit is sticky, it is best to let it dry completely (it takes about 10 minutes), before rinsing with warm water and patting dry. Rub your hand over your face to feel just how much softer and more supple the skin feels!

Love This? Never Miss Another Story.
