Grapefruit is a natural source of acid which works to exfoliate skin, removing dead dull skin cells to reveal a radiant, even toned complexion.
It possesses anti-inflammatory and cooling properties so can be used to treat congested and oily skin as well reducing swelling, redness and hyperpigmentation.
Grapefruit is rich in antioxidants including Vitamin A and Vitamin C which protect the skin from damaging environmental factors that cause premature ageing including fine lines and wrinkles. These antioxidants assist in the cell regeneration process and renew damaged skin. Vitamin A and Vitamin C also help to brighten and revitalise skin as well aiding in the production of collagen which firms and plumps skin.
As a source of Vitamin C, grapefruit also improves the health of hair. It boosts circulation in the scalp which encourages hair growth and nourishes dry scalps. This leads to healthy, strong, shiny hair.
