Dr.PAWPAW: How the humble PAWPAW fruit is here to help you perfect your makeup look this Valentine’s Day – Now available at Clicks

The PAWPAW, also known as papaya fruit, is a favourite all around the world. Native to North America, it is known for so much more than its delicious flavour.

The PAWPAW is known to have many of the same benefits as aloe vera. It has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, making it a great ingredient to include in skincare products. Some of the benefits of using pawpaw as a skincare ingredient include:

·       It is deeply hydrating, and known to help restore moisture to the lips, skin and hair.

·       PAWPAW is known to contain vitamin C, which helps boost the skin’s collagen production, brighten the complexion and protect it against pollutants and impurities (thanks to its high antioxidant content).

·       It also contains vitamin A, another antioxidant that’s used to help delay the signs of aging and help increase skin cell turnover, leaving skin beautifully soft and smooth.

An impressive multi-tasker, PAWPAW is the perfect ingredient for moisturising dry skin, soothing irritation and improving the skin’s overall health. 

That’s why Dr.PAWPAW chose this incredibly versatile ingredient as the base for their award-winning range of lip balms. 

This Valentine’s Day, trust Dr.PAWPAW Tinted Ultimate Red Lip Balm to nourish your skin while adding a pop of colour to your makeup look. It’s the perfect product to help you perfect a flirty flush of colour to the cheeks or a pretty tint on smooth, kissable lips.
