Abstract

This article discusses Facial Skin Health as seen from Antioxidant Facial Scrub from Red Dragon Fruit Extract. One way to treat your face is to use a scrub. Giving a natural facial scrub has many benefits, including refreshing, repairing and firming facial skin. Antioxidants contained in red dragon fruit include betalains which function to inhibit the growth of bad cholesterol and flavonoids which are related to brain health and reduce the risk of heart disease. Scrub functions to remove dead skin cells on the surface of the body's skin which is rough and dull. In addition, it also functions to help speed up the turnover of new, clean and healthy body skin cells. Dragon fruit face scrub can also smooth the skin. Rough skin is usually caused by a build-up of dead skin cells. The content of vitamin C, protein and folic acid is said to be effective in removing these dead skin cells.
