DRAGON FRUIT & POPPYSEED SOAP
I’m using the lovely Dragon fruit for soap making, and man there’s so much benefits to it on the skin! It’s not just high in iron and vitamins if consumed, the fruit may help in boosting your body immunity with its natural content of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also glorious on the skin as well.
Dragon Fruit Benefits For Skin
May Have Anti-Aging Properties: Dragon fruits contain antioxidants that have anti-aging properties. Vitamin C is another potent antioxidant that can prevent skin aging.
May Treat Acne: Dragon fruit extracts are used in traditional skin care remedies to treat acne. This could be because red dragon fruit peel has antimicrobial properties.
May Soothe Sunburned Skin: The vitamin C, along with the other vitamins and minerals present in dragon fruit, may assist in reducing sunburn. It restores moisture and heals the sunburnt area and calms it. The antimicrobial property of dragon fruit may help prevent infections on the burnt area.
May Promote Skin Health: Dragon fruit is a good source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is proven to lighten skin tone, reduce hyperpigmentation and improve skin complexion. It is also essential for collagen synthesis. Collagen keeps your skin firm and plump as it is a structural component of the skin.
May Hydrate The Skin: Dragon fruit is high in water, so it may help hydrate the skin. The vitamin B in it can moisturize your skin and keep it healthy and glowing.
