If you are looking for an easy yet effective way to include a natural ingredient in your skincare routine, don’t forget about pineapples. They provide a healthy glow and moisturised skin, and we believe that there is no substitute for natural ingredients. Using natural ingredients will ensure that your skin is not exposed to chemicals that may leave your skin feeling extremely dry and brittle. 

So if you’re looking for a homemade solution to moisturise the skin well, look no further than pineapples!.

Here are the skin benefits of pineapple 

Pineapples provide a variety of benefits for the skin. According to Dr Ajay Rana, renowned dermatologist and aesthetic physician, pineapple is good for the hair, skin, and bones. If someone is prone to acne, skin rashes, or skin damage, pineapple can really rejuvenate the skin and make it look clean and fresh. 

Pineapple juice contains loads of vitamin C and antioxidants that can treat acne, sun damage, and uneven skin toning. It will also keep the skin hydrated and make the skin clear.

On the other hand, pineapple is rich in nutrients and antioxidants that can fight inflammation. It is one of the healthy fruits that has loads of health benefits that can aid in good digestion and boost immunity. 

“With age, our skin begins to lose its glow and starts to develop wrinkles. However, pineapples can make the skin look younger and delay cells from dying. It will make the skin smooth and add that extra layer of youth. The fruit also contains alpha-hydroxy acid, which is the main substance that delays the death of cells, thus aiding in anti-ageing capabilities. Pineapple can also reduce black spots on the face – just rub some slices of pineapple over black spots,” shares Dr Rana with HealthShots.

So, are you ready to hydrate and nourish your skin?

Dr Rana also suggests various ways to use pineapple for your skin:

1. In the form of juice

Extract the juice of a pineapple, take it on a cotton ball and apply it to the face. Rinse it off in five minutes, but keep in mind that you must not leave it on for too long, since the acids in the pineapple can burn the skin.

2. As a scrub

The coarse nature of the pineapple works as a natural scrub to get rid of dead skin cells. For this, cut a slice of pineapple and divide it into four parts. Then rub it all over the body. Once you are done with rubbing, rinse it off. It exfoliates your skin and makes it super soft. Apply pineapple juice on the skin for a few minutes and leave it. The enzyme bromelain in the pineapple is an anti-inflammatory agent that can treat your acne-prone skin.

3. As a face mask

Pineapples are a natural hydrating agent that replenish the skin from the inside. You can also use it to make face masks. For this, take three tablespoons of pineapple juice, and mix it with one egg yolk and two tablespoons of milk to make an excellent natural hydrating mask. 

Here’s how you should apply this natural face pack to reap the benefits of pineapple:
  • Cleanse your face properly.
  • Apply the face pack all over the face and neck.
  • Massage it on the skin for three to five minutes. It will allow your skin to absorb the natural goodness of the ingredients.
  • Now, allow it to sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Wash it off with cold water, and avoid using soap, because it might strip your skin off moisturisation.
  • Use the face pack at least twice a week, for healthy and radiant skin.

So ladies, give your skin the treatment it deserves!
