Bring the Tropics Home with You

Papaya and pineapple may be delicious to eat, but they also have a handful of benefits for your body and skin.

To start, Papaya is rich in anti-oxidants.  The copious amounts of Vitamin A have major anti-oxidant properties that help heal skin, and the alpha-hydroxy acids offer anti-aging benefits.  The main enzyme in papaya is papain – this is a major exfoliating ingredient that helps to get rid of dead skin.  The fruit acids that papaya contains, help to loosen dry and dead skin, unclog pores, and help heal scars by speeding up the skins recovery process.

Papayas are also a great source beta-carotene, Vitamin C, folates, Vitamin B, and flavonoids. These vitamins also have anti-aging benefits, anti-inflammatory properties, and can be helpful to firm up skin.  They can rid the body of free radicals, and get rid of toxins while also strengthening the immune system and prevent illness, infection, and even help prevent vision lost.  The extract of papaya helps improve smooth skin’s texture, and repair skin tissue.

Pineapple is another beneficial fruit for skin.  It contains a powerful enzyme, Bromelain, which helps your body in a number of ways including the prevention of blood clotting, accelerating the healing of bruises and burns, reducing inflammation, helping to build bones, and treating arthritis.

Bromelain also has some great benefits for your skin’s appearance.  It rids the skin of dead cells and proteins, which also slows down the physical aging process and slowing down the appearance of wrinkles.  It improves skin’s elasticity and is able to get rid of the useless cells, while keeping healthy ones.  It has also been shown to even out skin’s pigmentation, and improve skin’s hydration.

Pevonia Botanica has a few products that enable you to bring these tropical products into your home to care for your skin.
