Papaya helps make your skin glow

Excerpt taken from an 12/3/09 article by Patricia called Glowing Skin Tips at

Papaya is good for the skin. Mash a slice of papaya and apply it on your face for 15 to 20 minutes. Papaya contains the enzyme papain that accelerates skin renewal and cell turnover. It is used in skin lightening products because of its exfoliating and skin lightening properties.

Consuming fresh papaya is also beneficial for your skin as it contains vitamins A, E, and C, and other anti-oxidants which provide essential moisture and protection that your skin needs.
