Pineapple: For removing dead skin cells

Apple from Pine tree?

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) work wonders because it removes dead skin cells, which is mainly made up of a protein called keratin.

But did you know there is a type of plant enzymes called Proteolyitc enzymes that actually help to dissolve the layer of keratin ?

Pineapple is a main source of Proteolytic plant enzyme. The enzyme helps to fight free-radicals that damage the skin and helps to remove dead skin cells while detoxifying to give a clean, rejuvenated skin.

Pineapple is useful against acne as it has anti-inflammation properties. Having exfoliating and anti-acne properties, pineapple makes your skin spotless and young.

And it makes good cocktails too!
