You are what you eat! And we could not agree more.
We must admit that what we eat reflects on our skin too! Hence, most of the skincare products put your food to work. One such superfood that works magic in skincare is ‘grapefruit’. The gorgeous red fruit gets its colour from a component called lycopene, which helps you with a silky smooth and glowing skin. Let us tell you that, over the last few years, grapefruit has become a key ingredient in numerous skincare and haircare products.
The citrusy fruit is loaded with essential skin vitamins and minerals and has numerous health benefits.
Quick Tip: Red and Pink coloured grapefruits have an abundant amount of skin vitamins and nutrients, compared to other colours.
Here’s a quick look at how you can make grapefruit a part of your skincare and haircare routine, and get the most out of its benefits.
Body Massage Candle
Had a long tiring day? Or looking for something that will rejuvenate your skin instantly? It’s time to light the Grapefruit Rejuvenating Hand Poured Body Massage Candle. This innovative product is organic - free from parabens, sulphates and carcinogens.
All you need to do, is light the candle and let the solid butter melt. Once some of it is melted, pour a generous amount of it onto your palm, and gently massage it onto your body. The butter melts into oils that are easily absorbed by the body and help to moisturize and rejuvenate the skin. Once done, extinguish the candle and store it for future use.
The best part? The rich comforting aroma of the candle helps to elevate your mood too!
Whether you are longing for a radiant and glowing skin or want to get rid of your dull and dehydrated complexion, the grapefruit body oil helps with both of these issues. The antioxidant beta carotene present in grapefruit helps to repair dull and dehydrated skin. While the lycopene present in it helps to get rid of redness and inflammation.
Power-packed with grapefruit oil, almond oil and orchid petals, Rejuvenating Grapefruit Revitalizing Body Oil is perfect as a massage oil and after body bath oil. The oil has anti-ageing properties and helps to brighten, refresh and moisturize your skin.
DIY Detox Mask
Grapefruits are also loaded with multiple vitamins. Vitamin A, which works as an amazing anti-ageing ingredient and vitamin C which reduces pigmentation and UV-induced photodamage. The fruit also has antiseptic and antibacterial properties, thus giving you an acne-free and clear skin.
Instead of picking up ordinary facial creams or facial cleansers, beat your skin woes using a DIY grapefruit detox mask.
To make the mask at home, all you need is grapefruit and organic yoghurt. Mix both of these ingredients well and apply a thin layer on your skin. Let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. This mask helps to brighten your skin, get rid of the fine lines and repair skin damage.
If your busy schedule does not allow you to make the DIY mask, the equally best alternative would be Pure Sense's 3-in-1 Grapefruit Revitalising Face Mask, Scrub and Cleanser.
Weather change takes a toll on our lips too! Having a grapefruit lip balm can do wonders for your dry and chapped lips. The lip balm seals in the moisture to plump up your lips and helps to remove dry skin cells.
Hair Conditioner and Cleanser
Well, if you are planning to make grapefruit infused products part of your skincare routine, then let us tell you that this citrusy fruit also revitalizes your hair while adding volume, preventing hair loss, fighting dandruff and along with making it shiny. So, when on the lookout for the best conditioners for dry hair and sulphate free shampoo, we’d recommend our grapefruit revitalising hair conditioner and hair cleanser respectively, for those luscious locks.
Now that you know all about this bomb superfruit and its wonders, wouldn’t you want to make it a part of your skincare and haircare routine? Oh yes, you would!
