Pineapple contains bromeliad, a protein-digestive enzyme which helps rid the skin of dead cells and dirt. It also counteracts histamines, has anti-inflammatory properties, and is a mild astringent.
Olive oil has excellent healing properties and is a good source of vitamin E, which restores the skin’s surface. Use only the highest quality cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil — it should go without saying that bread dippers and flavored oils ought be left on the shelf. Reach for the good stuff!
In a blender, combine 4 large pineapple chunks or 1/2 cup canned, drained pineapple and 3 tablespoons olive oil. Blend until almost smooth. Apply mixture to face with fingertips and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse face with warm water and pat dry.
