Here’s Why You Should Add Pineapple to Your Skin-Care Routine
Glow Recipe

By now you already know the many merits of using vitamin C in your skin-care regimen, right? (In a nutshell, it's a brightening powerhouse for dull and discolored skin.)

And you know what's packed with vitamin C? You guessed it (from the headline): pineapple.

Not only is your favorite cocktail garnish delicious, but it's also packed with alpha hydroxy acids and bromelain enzymes—both of which gently exfoliate dead skin so you're left with a smoother, more even-toned complexion. The tropical fruit is also packed with antioxidants to help protect against free radical damage so it's really working double-time here. 

So go ahead and add it to your diet and your medicine cabinet—and while you're at it, why not have a piña colada as well? 'Tis summertime after all. 

Ready to get in on the glow? Here are some of our favorite pineapple-packed products: Kiehl's Pineapple Papaya Facial Scrub ($28); Glow Recipe Pineapple-C Bright Serum ($49); Marc Jacobs Beauty Youthquake Gel Créme ($59; available for pre-order now).
