Spring is upon us. Farmers markets are springing up with an abundance of fresh vegetables and local ingredients. This time of the year is perfect for getting back on track with healthy habits before the warm summer months arrive. Fresh, healthy foods are beneficial inside and out! Let Merlot Skin Care help you put a fresh face forward with gentle cleansing products such as the Merlot Grape Seed Cleanser, which contains delicious fruit extracts including papaya, green apple, grape seeds and cucumbers. Working out and focusing on healthy food choices may help your bikini body — but your summer look won’t be complete without soft, ready-for-vacation skin!
Choosing skin care products with natural ingredients is key for skin health, and perfect for warmer weather conditions. The benefits of grape-seeds are immense, but the other ingredients are just as potent! A powerful ingredient in the Merlot Cleanser is papaya.
Papaya is one of the best fruits to incorporate into your skin care regimen. This fruit has two powerful enzymes called papain and chymopapain. Papain is primarily powerful in lightening and evening of skin tone. Papain and chymopapain contain anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Papaya is rich in Vitamins C, A, and E, pantothenic acid, folate, magnesium and potassium.
A few notes about papaya:
Papaya helps even skin tone. Papaya is powerful, with strong lightening and evening action. The enzyme papain is the the most active ingredient. This fruit’s natural bleaching properties help lighten dark spots and acne scars. Papaya is essential in helping heal discoloration.
Papaya soothes sensitive skin. Papaya extract is perfect for those with easily irritated skin. High quantities of the papain enzyme help in healing and soothing sensitive skin.
Papaya heals cuts and burns. Another wondrous impact of adding skin care products that contain papaya to your everyday routine is their healing powers. The papain enzyme works to keep bacteria at bay and prevent wounds from infection.
Say goodbye to blemishes. Papaya extract is known to vanquish pimples and acne. Its powerful skin cleansing properties reduce susceptibility to acne. In addition, simply eating a serving of papaya can protect your skin from blemishes and excess oil from the inside out.
Say hello to smooth skin. This fruit has the ability to reverse, or at least slow, the skin aging process. It works to repair, exfoliate and hydrate the skin. The papain enzyme can help reduce wrinkles by modulating the collagen and elastic fibres in the dermis.
These are not the only benefits of adding papaya to your skin care routine. This fruit also works to naturally exfoliate dead skin cells, and protects against fungus growth and other irritations. Studies have shown that rubbing a bit of the fleshy center of the fruit on open wounds works just as well as normal astringents in fighting infection and inflammation. Research has also shown papaya can be used for treatment of warts, corns, sinuses, eczema, cutaneous tubercles, glandular tumors and blood pressure issues. Surprisingly, papaya is also known for its ability to reduce unwanted facial hair.
Products such as the Merlot Cleanser harness the nourishing powers of fruits and vegetables, in addition to papaya to cleanse your skin of impurities, the natural way.
