11 Pineapple Skin-Care Products for Brighter, Glowing Skin — Reviews
Pineapple isn’t just the fruit that always gets eaten first in a communal fruit salad. It’s also rich in glowy-skin properties and more and more skin-care brands are starting to take note. Pineapple extract is chock full of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) that chemically exfoliate skin to give it that luminous glow.
According to Audrey Kunin, a Kansas-based dermatologist, pineapple is rich in both “antioxidant vitamin C, which helps fight free-radical damage, supports the production of collagen and the enzyme bromelain, and brightens the complexion.” The enzyme helps dissolve proteins, she explains, which means when used topically it can help aid chemical exfoliation and unclog pores.
