Discover The Benefits of Pineapple on Your Skin

Is pineapple good for you and your skin? Skincare might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of pineapple, but the spiny tropical fruit can really benefit your skin.

Part of the bromeliad family, pineapple is known for being full of vitamins and enzymes, as well as a range of other nutrients. Therefore, it’s no surprise that pineapple is used in skincare. But what are the health benefits of pineapple? Keep reading to find out all you need to know about pineapple skincare products.

Is pineapple good for you?

Among the health benefits of pineapple is that it contains plenty of vitamins. Pineapple contains a lot of vitamin C. This vitamin hydrates and brightens skin, while reducing the appearance of circles under eyes, promoting the production of collagen, and even protecting against sun damage.

It also contains vitamin E, which helps to maintain healthy skin and neutralises free radicals, as well as vitamins A and K. Both of these can benefit your skin, the former moisturising and hydrating and the latter protecting collagen and being good for anti-ageing.

Pineapples also contain bromelain, a mixture of enzymes that’s linked to a number of different health benefits. Present in the stem and the fruit of the pineapple plant, it’s been used for hundreds of years. Among the active ingredients in bromelain are proteinases and proteases, which break down proteins in the body.

Benefits of Bromelain

The benefits of bromelain for your skin

Bromelain is used for a number of purposes due to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and exfoliating properties. But what are the bromelain benefits for skin?

Studies have suggested that using bromelain and pineapple extract in skincare can help prevent acne and reduce irritation, while it’s sometimes used to help reduce pain and redness after cosmetic procedures.

It exfoliates skin, too. It’s similar to exfoliating acids like salicylic acid, in that it breaks down the proteins that hold skin cells together, allowing dead skin cells to fall off. Not only that, but because bromelain doesn’t penetrate quite as deeply into the skin, it’s less likely to irritate it.

More generally, pineapple helps to restore, re-plump and even out the texture of the skin, and protect it from pollution damage. Being anti-inflammatory, it helps reduce redness and swelling with spots appear, too.
