Olive Oil & Pineapple Facial Mask

Updated on September 16, 2014

Soothe Irritated Skin Naturally

Whether you suffer from rough and irritated skin, are exposed to harsh weather conditions, or just want a healthy quick way to soothe and nourish your skin, few things works better than an olive oil and pineapple facial mask treatment.

While you can get a professional fruit based facial at the local spa, chances are you already have a pineapple and some olive oil in your own kitchen.

So go ahead, and whip up this amazing face mask...100% pure and natural healing in the comfort of your own home!


Healing Properties of Olive Oil

Olive oil has been used by women for generations in Southern Europe to keep their skin youthful, smooth, healthy and radiant.

More recently, several studies have shown that olive oil indeed has many healing properties as well as contains high levels of vitamin E and vitamin A, healthy fats, and antioxidants like hydroxytyrosol and phytosterols.

This virtual cornucopia of healing properties aids in repairing and maintaining skin's smoothness, elasticity and overall health. These beneficial properties also help to decrease inflammation making it the perfect oil for irritated skin, eczema, acne break-outs, and chapped skin. Olive oil is perfect for treating all skin types as it is easily absorbed by the skin without clogging pores.


Benefits of Pineapple

Pineapple fruit is one of nature's best astringents as it contains bromelain which is a digestive enzyme that naturally helps your skin slough off dead skin cells as well as excess oils and dirt.

Dermatological studies have also shown that the naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acids in pineapples help to improve skin elasticity as well as aid in diminishing the depth and look of fine lines and wrinkles over time.

The high levels of Vitamin C, B6, folate, niacin and thiamine also work hard to fend off free radical damage and help boost collagen production.


Pineapple and Olive Oil: Power Duo

Mixing the beneficial properties of olive oil and pineapple to create an all natural treat for your skin is the ideal way of healing skin that is irritated, broken out, or rough. It's also the perfect facial superfood to keep already healthy skin looking its best and giving it a protective and soothing edge against the elements and everyday stresses.

Quick & Simple

  1. To make the olive oil and pineapple facial mask all you will need is four tablespoons of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, and a half cup of pineapple chunks (you can use canned pineapple, but fresh and organic is always best).
  2. Once you have the ingredients on hand, place the olive oil and pineapple chunks into your blender or food processor and blend them until the mixture is very smooth. You can use this mixture right away by smoothing it onto your freshly washed face, or you can store it in the fridge for later use.
  3. Leave the treatment on for 10-25 minutes and rinse your face with cool water. You can then towel dry your face and moisturize as usual. Your skin will feel healthier and pores will look smaller instantly!

Spa Worthy at Home

While not all of us have the time or budget to go to a spa for a professional facial treatment, we do all deserve to pamper our skin. With just a little olive oil and a pineapple, you can create the perfect, nutrient laden treat for your skin in just minutes and in the comfort of your own home.

Use it to heal irritated skin or just to nourish already healthy skin. Your face will look radiant, and healthy without the high cost of salon procedures or the possible exposure to chemicals that many prepackaged face masks and treatments often have. All natural goodness for your skin is cheap, easy and completely do-able!
