  2. Rub this core to your face for one to two minutes
  3. Leave the pineapple juice on face for ten minutes
  4. Rinse off
  5. Apply as you need exfoliating

Like we mentioned this has no proven results or approved use but there’s no harm in trying pineapples on your skin for wrinkles. It may work very good for you and the worst thing that can happen is that it will leave you smelling like fresh pineapples.
