Normally associated with being the key ingredient for our Pina coladas the humble pineapple is now being used for its superpower in skincare.The tropical fruit has the ability to resurface rough or uneven skin.Dermatologist Dr Stefanie Williams explains how “Pineapple extract contains a mix of enzymes which gently exfoliates but also has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial benefits.” They also are rich in Vitamins C & E which are the perfect pick up for dull skin. Not only can this fruit do all this it also is an antioxidant which prevents the skin from pollution damage during the day.
