Grapefruit is one of my favourite fruits. Especially after i've over indulged on the weekend and am in need of a quick fix de-bloat and pick me up. Iv'e been prescribing this wonder fruit to a lot of my clients recently to help purify their skin. Whilst researching Grapefruit's benefits, I started to notice that there were A LOT of benefits. Not only is grapefruit (predominantly of the pink and red variety) shown to lower blood glucose levels, assist in weight-loss and as research has shown fights against cancer prevention but it is also know to help your body work efficiently at flushing out toxins from the body and the waste from all your cells - the latter is specifically what will make the skin appear clean, bright and even. The vitamins and minerals in grapefruit will feed your cells keeping the skin cells healthy and strong and make your skin absolutely glow. Grapefruit helps to cleanse the liver helping make dark circles under the eyes appear brighter and can also aid in preventing and clearing breakout.

Not only can you ingest grapefruit for its skin benefits but applied topically will fight free-radical damage and deliver a surge of anti-oxidants directly into the skin. The juices will fight against skin concerns such as lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, discolouration and blemishes just to name a few.

Try these grapefruit tips: 

Not a massive fan of the tartness? Why not try adding a little natural sweetener like stevia, agave or honey over the top.

Slice into rings and freeze for the extra cooling effect.

Add to your water.

Juice with other fruits

After cleansing, wipe a slice over the face and pat off excess with a tissue before moisturising.
