One of the most important benefits of pineapple for skin is the fact it contains bromelain. Bromelain has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects to the skin and it can be used to treat a range of skincare problems.
On top of all the other benefits for skin, pineapple is also great in controlling acne breakouts. Pineapple reduces excess oil and mattes the skin and its enzymes exfoliate the skin and unclog pores.
Rosewater will hydrate your skin and it also has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. Oatmeal powder soothes the skin and calms the redness and irritations – perfect for often inflamed acne-prone skin.
1 tablespoon pineapple pulp
2 teaspoons rose water
2 teaspoons of oatmeal powder
Mix the pineapple puree and rose water.
Add just enough oatmeal powder (oat flour or finely ground rolled oats) to get a smooth paste.
Wash your face and apply the mixture while your skin is still slightly damp.
Leave it on for around 10 minutes.
After that time, wash the mask off with lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser.
Apply a lightweight face moisturizer.
