Pineapple, a tropical fruit, brings a multitude of benefits for both health and beauty. Rich in antioxidants and exfoliating enzymes, pineapple regenerates the skin from the inside and outside.

Bromelain, an enzyme that aids digestion, is a component of this fruit. It not only improves digestion, but also reduces inflammation and thus helps people with rheumatoid arthritis.

Bromelain supplements also increase the body's healing ability. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, pineapple is often recommended in medical spas to speed healing after surgery and to reduce the trauma of peels, injections and laser procedures.

The famous Dr. Andrew Weil, a specialist in holistic medicine, recommended taking 200 to 400 mg three times a day to enjoy its benefits on the skin and longevity. A cup of pineapple provides 40% of daily vitamin C increases the effectiveness of the immune system and helps the production of collagen for healthy skin.

Used to scrub the body and face, pineapple extract is rich in enzymes that are rich in exfoliating AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), a combination that gently dissolves dead cells and reveals a soft and smooth skin.

Where to find good natural beauty products?

  • The Pineapple Slimming Ritual Fruits & Passion: Bromelain, thanks to its stimulating effect, is of great help in removing cellulite. Four products are offered – the Pineapple Slimming Shower Cream ($ 15), Exfoliating Cream ($ 15.50), Serum ($ 36), and Body Butter ($ 20).
  • Serum Super Lift Eye Contour Firming by Clarins: A protein complex derived from wheat (smoothing and firming) and pineapple (anti-radical, energizing, moisturizing and purifying) reduces puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles. Use every morning or in the evening before going out.

Grapes for beauty!

We know the virtues of a daily glass of red wine for good health, but we are discovering more and more benefits of grapes in cosmetology. In addition to possessing antioxidant nutrients and cancer fighting ingredients, grapes are rich in polyphenols, which are ten thousand times more active than vitamin E. It takes a ton of grapes to extract one kilo of polyphenols!

Caudalie, the first wine therapy spa in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyards Smith-Haut-Lafitte, is behind the leading brand of grape-based cosmetics. Since then, five other vinotherapy spas have sprung up and a sixth will open soon in New York, the first in North America.

Where to find those beauty products?

  • Find exotic shower oils (including grape seed oil) at Ella Baché. More than a cleanser, the product delivers complete skin care.
  • For body care products made from Cottage grape pulp, there Shower Gel ($ 7.50), After-Shower Spray ($ 13.95), Cream Soap ($ 7.25), and Foam Gel ($ 8.95) is a great bet.
  • Caudalie has good products for Concentrate Firming and Contouring Concentrate. These are two complementary products, since all body parts have different needs. The first targets the upper body, working on the loss of firmness and elasticity, while the second will treat the lower body, and act on cellulite and stretch marks. Like all products from Caudalie, they do not contain parabens or phenoxyethanol.
