Why you’ll want to add these delicious ingredients to your skincare regimen
Pineapple and Papaya are probably two things you think about eating - rather than putting on your face. But, these delicious summer fruits are two of the latest #trending ingredients making the rounds in skincare formulas - and for very good reasons.
In this guide, we’re taking a deep dive into these new-gen darlings of the beauty world. So, let’s get into it…
What’s the deal with Pineapple and Papaya, and why would you want to consider adding them into your skincare routine?
If you love piña coladas, you’ll be excited to know that your favourite cocktail ingredient is brilliant for your face, too. Pineapple Extract is full of bromelain - a natural enzyme with a slew of skin-loving benefits. When harnessed in skincare, bromelain has the ability to do everything from brightening to reducing inflammation and exfoliating.
Pineapple extract is also loaded with alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) which are loved by skincare experts for their supreme – yet gentle – exfoliating powers. In other words, Pineapple Extract is a bit of an overachiever and if you’d like to improve your skin tone and texture, it’s definitely a goodie to check out.
Papaya Fruit Enzyme
Sourced from the seeds of the Papaya Fruit, Papaya Fruit Enzyme is rich in antioxidants and vitamins including Vitamin A (which is known for its transformative effect on the complexion and kicking the skin cell’s natural renewal process into high gear), Vitamin B (which helps to reduce pigmentation and calm inflammation), and Vitamin C (which effectively brightens dullness while diminishing dark spots).
It also works to sweep away dead skin cells to reveal a softer, more luminous complexion. With all that in mind, it’s an excellent one to look out for in skincare ingredient lists if you’re hunting for a product with resurfacing properties.
How-to use Pineapple Extract and Papaya Fruit Enzyme in your skincare routine
Besides smelling amazing, it’s clear Pineapple and Papaya boast some seriously impressive brightening, exfoliating and renewing properties for your complexion. But, before you run out to the store to pick up some produce, you might want to hold up for a second and let us explain how you should use them to get results.
It’s the concentrated extracts from these fruits that will deliver these effects we’ve discussed so if you want in on the benefits, your best bet is getting your hands on skincare containing Pineapple Extract and Papaya Fruit Enzyme. Keen? We’ve got you covered with a recommendation...
