In my opinion, pineapples are one of the most delicious fruits. However, they are more than just delicious.

Pineapple juice is anti-inflammatory and is rich in antioxidants, such as AHA (alpha hydroxy acids), which is anti-aging. Pineapples are packed with nutrients, including vitamins A and B. They have enzymes called Bromelain, which acts as a gentle exfoliant and helps remove dead skin cells, dirt, and oil. Eating pineapples is also good for your heart, kidneys, and aids in digestion.

Pineapple Exfoliating Mask

1/2 cup ripe pineapples (or about 4 large chunks)
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Mash the pineapple with a fork or in a food processor, until smooth. Add the olive oil and mix well to combine. After cleansing your face with a mild cleanser, apply the mixture to your face, avoiding the eye area. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water, pat dry, and apply moisturizer.

Using this mask regularly will increase skin hydration and elasticity, remove dead skin cells, help heal acne scars, and give you a radiant glow.
