Pineapple - The New IT Skincare Ingredient
Your favorite healthy snack is about to be your new favorite skincare ingredient too. There’s no arguing that pineapple is a well-loved tropical fruit but have you tried using it on your face? Okay, so maybe don’t actually put slices of pineapple on your face BUT you should try out skincare products that include pineapple extracts!
But why is pineapple good for your skin? Pineapple extract contains Bromelain, which is an enzyme extract which can help exfoliate the skin gently when used in topical products. Bromelain also has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
Okay, smooth skin, check, but it doesn’t stop there! Pineapple extract also contains high levels of Vitamin C & E which take your skin from dull and gray to bright and awakened. Both vitamins will also help even skin tone and reduce sunspots like melasma.
Lastly, pineapple contains anti-inflammatory properties which can help reduce the appearance of redness from acne and gently exfoliates to help clear out dead skin cells and blackheads. The ascorbic acid found in pineapple can also help even out skin tone.
