When to use Papaya soap?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

When is the best time to use papaya soap during the regimen? My best guess would be to use it before applying the regimen. And if so, what is the best method to use it? Details would be appreciated! 8-[

Hi,

a papaya soap contains a pretty potent exfoliating enzyme called papain. So I don't think it is an appropriate twice daily cleanser for the regimen. I think you would definitely want to follow the regimen as dan suggests (cleanser and moisturiser both with no actives) for at least 4-6 weeks before you add in a variable. You might be able to incorporate later as a treatment in place of your cleanser once a day or twice a week or something. I suggest you go to the scarboard and find the thread about papaya soaps. From memory the consensus is that they're an excellent exfoliant, but verydrying.
