Beauty Bite: Grapefruit

Grapefruit: An Anti-Aging Powerhouse

Oranges may get all the love this time of year for their cold-fighting benefits, but when it comes to anti-aging beauty foods, it’s time we get down with grapefruit.

Packed with vitamins A and C, grapefruits are anti-aging powerhouses!

While the vitamin C helps protect your skin from the environmental causes of aging, the vitamin A acts as an internal retinol, encouraging cell-turnover, evening skin tone, renewing damaged skin, reversing age and sun spots, and smoothing wrinkles.

But that’s not all…

Grapefruit also helps to stimulate the production of collagen, helping to keep skin supple and elastic, surefire signs of youthfulness.

Pretty Prescription: Swap your morning OJ for some grapefruit juice, add grapefruit sections to your next smoothie or salad, or get creative and make a salad dressing with olive oil, fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, salt and pepper!
