1) Cell-renewing, Rejuvenating Grapefruit Mask2 Tbsp grapefruit juice1 tsp carrot juice2 Tbsp plain organic yogurt
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix. Apply a thick layer of paste onto clean skin and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and a washcloth. Your skin should feel refreshed and glowing. Use this mask weekly or as required.
2) Try an Olive or Grape Seed Oil Bath
Simply mix half a cup of olive or grape seed oil in bathwater and hop in!
Grapeseed oil is often used as a cosmetic ingredient for damaged or stressed tissues because it has regenerative qualities, specifically for collagen regeneration and capillary support. It is especially effective for repair of the skin around the eyes and for the repair of stretch marks. Oil baths help regulate skin oil production and keep the skin looking soft and supple, especially in the colder months.
Top tip: Grapeseed oil can also be used instead of shaving cream for face and legs, and is much less irritating and more nourishing than soap-based shaving creams.
