It’s the fruit of summer folks, and it’s time to reap all its benefits for beauty. So, if you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain, use these tips on why and how to incorporate pineapples into your everyday beauty routine.
1. Youthful Skin: If you are looking for a natural way to slow down the aging process, pineapple is your best friend. They’re loaded with antioxidants and alpha-hydroxy acids, which fight skin-damaging free radicals. Create this fruit and honey face mask to soak up all these benefits:
Fruit & Honey Skin Mask
You’ll need 1/2 fresh papaya, 1/2 pineapple, 1 tbsp of honey
Blend ingredients into a pulp and apply to your freshly washed face, neck, and chest (avoiding the eye area)
Lie down and relax for 15 minutes. Let your face tingle and itch – the mask is working! You can also massage your hands with the leftover mixture. Rinse with warm water and finish your skin softening routine with coconut oil or a moisturizer of your choice.
2. Fewer Wrinkles and Warts: When you apply pineapple juice directly to your face (for no more than 5-10 minutes!), it can ward off moles, warts and blemishes. Don’t worry if you have sensitive skin — vitamin C gives skin a healing touch. Pineapples also reduce the sight of wrinkles due to their large amounts of bromelain.
3. Fewer Dark Spots: Fruits that are high in enzymes, like pineapples, are perfect to brighten and soften skin when used topically. Whether you crush it into a paste or use pineapple juice directly with a cotton ball, it will help get rid of the dark spots on your face for subtle, lighter skin. Pineapple and Coconut Face Wash
Ingredients: 2 teaspoons of fresh pineapple juice, 2 tablespoons of warm organic coconut oil
