Tropical Treats – Pineapples, Papaya, Mangoes, Coconuts
Papaya contains the enzyme papain, which is one of the best exfoliators around, and enzymes derived from pineapple also help loosen dead skin cells, resulting in a soft, glowing and smooth complexion.
If you like Papaya, Pineapple and Ginger, the facial, of the same name, at The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, HI, is made to order for you. In addition to the traditional deep cleansing, there’s also a gentle papaya, pineapple and grapeseed scrub rids skin of dead skin cells, followed by a green-tea-and-ginger mud mask. These antioxidant-rich ingredients replace vital vitamins and minerals to replenish and soften the skin.
Mango’s natural fruit enzymes help rejuvenate, restore and replenish the skin, Fruit extracts have wonderful hydrating properties and are rich in nutrients like vitamin A, which is great for the skin. The ANARA Body Polish at the ANARA Spa at the Hyatt Regency Kauai in Koloa, HI, uses the spa’s signature line of mango and coconut products to give you a hydrating scrub topped off with an after-bath mist that leaves your skin smelling of the tropics.
