Pineapple Olive Oil Dry Skin Facial

This pineapple facial is an excellent exfoliant for dry skin.   The citrus fruit contains bromeliad, a protein-digestive enzyme which helps rid the skin of dead cells and dirt.   It also counteracts histamines, has anti-inflammatory properties, and is a mild astringent. Olive oil has excellent healing properties and is a good source of vitamin E, which restores the skin’s surface.

Use only the highest quality cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil — it should go without saying that bread dippers and flavored oils ought be left on the shelf. Reach for the good stuff!
