**Fun tips for using the whole pineapple**

  1. Save the top of the pineapple to use as a brush on your skin. The pineapple “brush” is thought to have healing properties – whether it’s from the natural abrasive or exfoliant actions or the anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, like bromelain, found in this fruit, your skin will be radiant and cuts or minor abrasions may heal even faster!
