DIY Day Spa

May 17, 2013

Spoil yourself on the inside and out. Known for it’s sunny disposition, grapefruit is the perfect fruit for creating your very own day spa at home.

Not only delicious, grapefruit carries some serious health benefits, including: lycopene (cancer fighting antioxidant), breaks up toxins in the body making them more water-soluble (easy to flush out), high in vitamins C and A (half a grapefruit provides daily value of both), helps metabolize fats and carbohydrates, lowers bad cholesterol, curbs hunger, helps fade age spots and discoloration in skin, aids in reducing an oily complexion while building collagen (keeping your skin tight)… just to name a few.

phew!

And now you have some researched-based “ammo” in case anyone gives you guff for taking a stay-cation! ha!

    This is perfect! I have several grapefruits in my fridge now, and I kinda got tired of eating the same ol’, same ol’ way! Can’t wait to try the facial!
