The Newest “It” Beauty Ingredient: Pitaya featured image

Pitaya is the newest ingredient to infiltrate the beauty world. The pretty pink fruit, also known as dragon fruit, is popping up everywhere from facials to lotions to fragrances. That’s why we wanted to know what all the hype is about.

It turns out that pitaya is packed with antioxidants which help fight free radicals in our body, thus slowing down the aging process. Fans of the fruit claim that eating it helps keep the skin young, flexible and tight. It’s also got a lot of vitamin B and C—major skin boosting vitamins.

What’s more, the pitaya is also a great diet food. That’s because it’s chock full of fiber and low in calories, making it a perfect fit for the Volumetrics diet. Plus, it helps detoxify our digestive system and speeds the metabolism.

Want to get your pitaya fix? Give yourself a little spritz of The Demeter Fragrance Library: Dragon Fruit ($39). Or treat your skin to the Peter Thomas Roth Laser-Free Regenerator Moisturizing Gel-Cream ($68) that contains dragon fruit extracts.
