You’ll find all sorts of fruits in skincare products — coconuts, olives, and even prickly pears. One that’s particularly special is pineapple, a powerful ingredient that’s known for its ability to create brighter, smoother-looking skin.
“Pineapple itself contains high amounts of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and is also abundant in antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, which protect your skin from pollution,” notes Sarah Akram, a celebrity master esthetician.
In addition, pineapple contains bromelain, a beloved enzyme that doubles down on that exfoliation action. Products formulated with pineapple — such as BAREPRO 16HR Skin-Perfecting Powder Foundation — can help create skin that looks radiant and feels soft and smooth. So let’s explore some of those covetable benefits more closely…
Skincare Benefits of Pineapple
Though the pineapple is a rather uninviting-looking fruit with its studded fruit and spiky crown, it packs some serious skincare benefits.
It Creates a Brighter-Looking Complexion
As mentioned above, pineapple contains AHAs and an enzyme called bromelain, two important types of chemical exfoliators. When applied onto skin, they “gently exfoliate by dissolving the ‘glue’ that holds the dead cells together on the surface of the skin,” notes Akram. The result is a complexion that looks brighter and more even toned.
It Helps Smooth Skin Texture
Along with creating a glowing complexion, pineapple’s gentle exfoliation properties help refine the skin’s surface for a smoother-looking texture. When used consistently over time, you can even see a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including those pesky crow’s feet, elevens and marionette lines.
Akram adds, “[Pineapple] is a great option for more sensitive skin types or for those who need a more mild exfoliant during the winter.”
