We all know that fruit is good for us, but do we actually know HOW good it is? I was recently doing some research into grapefruit because I wanted to start making some Grapefruit Bars and I found a lot of really great information.

Not only is grapefruit great for your health, but it’s great for your skin as well. Consuming grapefruit or grapefruit juice has been linked to weight loss, protection against heart disease and certain types of cancer, and it can also help to lower your cholesterol. But did you know that grapefruit juices applied directly to the skin have beauty benefits as well? It’s a great alternative to those acid/chemical peels, laser treatments, and other painful beauty tricks; plus it’s a lot less expensive! Grapefruit are naturally high in anti-oxidants, these help fight lines, wrinkles, blemishes or discolorations, and they’re a heaven sent for those of you with oily skin (like myself).

 

 

Some cute tips I found during my reading:

 

– Add Ruby Red Grapefruit juice to any homemade cleansers to give them a nice pink hue and sweet fruity scent

 

– Make your own Grapefruit Sugar Scrub: Sugar (Coarse natural brown or white granulated), Essential Oil (I used grapefruit) & Grapefruit Juice
