Summer is well and truly upon us, and already the heat and humidity are taking its toll on our skin. To celebrate International Pineapple Day, we’re taking inspiration from our favourite tropical fruit to find a skincare regime to beat the heat. Pineapple is packed with vitamin C and loaded with anti-oxidants which are great at reviving tired skin and clearing up uneven toning and acne. Curate your beauty bag with these pineapple products for a five-step morning routine for a glowing complexion well beyond summer.
1. Scrub: Keihl’s Pineapple Papaya Facial Scrub
For an accurate reading of the city’s pollution or your own stress levels, just look in the mirror: it all shows up on the skin. If you don’t have time for a tropical retreat, Kiehl’s Pineapple Papaya Facial Scrub is the best place to begin for some self-care and pampering. The product foams with a gentle scrub on the face, ridding the skin of uneven texture or dullness and effectively easing that congested feeling at the end of a long day.
2: Cleanse: Daily Foaming Wash by Kate Somerville
The Daily Foaming Wash by Kate Somerville is a softer and gentler wash that can be used daily: it’s always great for those who have sensitive skin. It helps reduce the signs of aging from environmental aggressors on the skin, leaving your skin feeling smooth and supple. The pineapple, pumpkin, and papaya enzymes also purify without over-drying, proving it as effective as soap and as gentle as cream.
3. Toning: N.A.S. Toner by Amboni Organics
We all know toning corrects your skin colour, restores the pH balance and shrinks your pores, but why use a pineapple-scented one? Pineapple, when mixed with papaya and apple extracts, dissolves dead skin cells with natural enzymes that cause blemishes and breakouts. For scents like a tropical paradise, bacteria-free skin, and luxurious-feeling skin treatment, check out the N.A.S. Toner by Amboni Organics.
4. Moisturise: Pineapple C Bright Serum by Glow Recipe
The Pineapple C Bright Serum from Glow Recipe is pineapple in name, scent, and appearance so it’s hard to miss. Just as juicy as the fruit itself, the serum is composed of 22% pineapple juice extracts, guaranteeing sweet and succulent smells as well as bursting with natural enzymes. The serum also features the star of the beauty community, hyaluronic acid, for maximum moisture and ensuring your sunscreen glides on smoothly, a travel essential for happy and refreshed skin all summer long.
