It’s like we blinked and pineapple beauty products popped up from a dozen of our favorite brands. But it’s not just a trendy ingredient that evokes SpongeBob SquarePants references and comes in cute packaging. Pineapple extract is actually full of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which chemically exfoliate skin and make your face glow. Pineapple is a natural source of vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that can balance skin tone, as well as reduce hyperpigmentation and the signs of aging. Plus, pineapple features naturally occurring lactic acid—possibly the most gentle chemical exfoliant out there. Say goodbye to facial irritation.

If you have dull skin, congested pores or uneven surface texture, you might want to incorporate a pineapple-infused beauty product into your routine. Below, we’ve rounded up 10 exfoliators, lotions, serums, cleansers, and more full of the citrus fruit, as well as other skin-loving ingredients. Look for hyaluronic acid and vitamin E for even more skin benefits.
