Grapefruit Brightening Face Mask


By Tiffany Moore

Being a woman and have radiantly flawless skin all year round can seem really tough. Never-ending demands of work and family plus everyday environmental assault caused by extreme temperature and poor diet can take a brutal toll on your skin, leaving it tiredly dull and pasty in appearance.


Beautiful skin that feels as smooth as baby’s bottom will always get you compliments, and compliments earn self confidence. But if yours feels less-than-phenomenal and looks a little dim, don’t book an outrageously expensive facial spa appointment yet. This oh-so-energizing homemade grapefruit face mask can help your skin bounce back to life and best of all, it costs only pennies to make!


Grapefruit is not only great for shedding holiday pounds but also perfect for skin care, thanks to its high Vitamin C content. This skin-regenerating antioxidant plays a vital role in the production of collagen, a fibrous protein that keeps skin nicely firm and taut. We lose collagen and elastin as we age, which explains why wrinkles mysteriously creep up on our face and skin starts to sag once we reach 30.


Facing some skin pigmentation problems lately? Here comes the good news in a bad skin situation – the Vitamin C in grapefruit has the ability to naturally lighten discolored skin (freckles and dark spots) over time and brighten up dull-looking complexion in minutes.


What’s also attractive about using grapefruit in skin care is, it makes a good skin-soothing antiseptic that can help stave off acne problems while normalizing oil production. So if your skin gets oily really quickly, say 4 to 5 hours after washing and super prone to acne breakouts, or if you are struggling with large pores and blackheads, then this grapefruit facial mask is an absolute god-send.


The other benefit is, this exceedingly simple face mask makes a great firming and rejuvenating pick-me-up for tired skin, no matter what skin type you have.


Use this homemade grapefruit face pack 1-2 times a week for best results. You can store any unused portions in an air-tight container, and refrigerated for up to 2 days.
