Mangoes, papayas and pineapples--oh my!
Tropical fruit seduces the senses. It tastes and smells luscious, and the eye candy colors almost always lift the spirits.
Best of all, citrus provides lots of health benefits. Antioxidants, minerals and vitamins serve as powerful immune system boosters. Plus, when used in skin care, natural fruit enzymes help remove dead skin cells, prevent premature aging and restore a youthful complexion.
November marks National Healthy Skin Month. As we celebrate the bounty of the fall harvest, take a moment to nourish your skin with healing tropical fruit extracts.
