June 27th is National Pineapple Day! It’s an entire day dedicated to the tropical fruit that may or may not be great on pizza (I vote yes!). Also known as ananas comosus, pineapples are loaded with immune-strengthening vitamin C and antioxidant-rich manganese. So, go ahead and celebrate this fruit-focused holiday with a pineapple mojito or two—it’s for your health.
In addition to serving as a consumable source of vitamins and minerals, pineapple fruit extract and the pineapple-derived enzyme bromelain work wonders when applied topically. The summery fruit’s anti-inflammatory and exfoliating properties completely cleanse skin of build up for healthy, glowing results. Here are the pineapple-infused products you’ll need to keep on hand throughout the sunny season.
