Use Grapefruit to Win the Fight Against Aging
One of the best tools to fight aging may already be in your kitchen. It's grapefruit. Don't waste money on expensive creams and serums when you have fresh grapefruit in the house. The natural antioxidants in grapefruit juice and grapefruit flesh can help reverse the signs of aging. Eating grapefruit is a good way to repair your skin from the inside out, but using grapefruit juice in homemade beauty products is also an effective way to fight the signs of aging. Using fresh citrus facial cleanser and toner each days is a great way to start a new, all natural, highly effective anti-aging campaign.
Citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits are full of anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals. When you eat those fruits the natural components of the fruit help repair damaged skin cells and flush out waste from your cells, which makes your skin look younger. But when you use the fruit in beauty products you are applying those helpful elements directly to the skin which provides an immediate benefit to the skin. Almost instantly you will notice fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable because the skin will be hydrated, supple, and have the elasticity of young skin. The natural acidity in grapefruit juice can also help balance oily skin and restore the skin's natural Ph levels, which will also make you look younger and healthier.
All you need to make a simple grapefruit facial scrub to use every day is grapefruit, sugar, a little Witch Hazel and a blender. Cut a grapefruit in half and put the entire half into a blender. Pour in about two cups of fresh grapefruit juice, or use one cup of orange juice and one cup of grapefruit juice if you want your scrub to smell extra sweet. Add in a cup of granulated white sugar. Blend on high until the mixture has a nice even consistency. The sugar will make it feel a little rough to the touch, but those sugar granules will help exfoliate your skin gently and naturally. Use that mixture to wash your face with and you will see results within a few days. You will notice that your face is smoother and that the tone of your skin is more even. You should also see less noticeable wrinkles and lines. Grapefruit is one of the healthiest things you can eat and it's also one of the best things you can use to fight the signs of aging.
