1. It could calm inflammation
Inflammation = redness, swelling, and irritation. Basically, it’s not great news for your face.
Research shows that pineapple is naturally anti-inflammatory. Say buh-bye to ruddy noses, splotchy cheeks, and pesky red zits.
2. It could help reverse skin disease
Pineapple’s secret weapon is bromelain, a powerful enzyme that’s found in its stem. Folks claim it can soothe lots of health issues from sinusitis to asthma. Oh, and it might even be able to fight against some skin disease.
In one older study of eight people with pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC), a chronic skin disease, folks who took bromelain daily for 3 months were able to *reverse* 😲 their condition.
Most folks know vitamin C is great for supporting the immune system, but yes, it’s also great for your skin. Science says it helps promote collagen production, which makes skin smooth and bouncy.
3. It fights premature aging
Remember that whole schtick about oxidative stress? Well, stressed-out cells can lead to premature wrinkles and fine lines.
Noshing on pineapple (vitamin C and bromelain, specifically) floods your body with antioxidants to help fight that kind of damage. #PlantPower
4. It supports wound healing processes
By now you know pineapples are full of vitamin C, which plays a significant role in skin cell regeneration. While a gnarly scrape won’t heal by the powers of vitamin C alone, eating pineapple can help support your body’s natural wound healing and cell turnover.
5. It Inhibit Hyperpigmentation
A research review tells us that healthy vitamin C levels help your skin color look more even. That’s great news for folks who deal with hyperpigmentation from acne or sun exposure.
