1. Your Skin Could Become Clearer

Grapefruits really could be your answer to glowing, healthy and youthful skin as they’re packed with vitamin C.

Of course, this citrus fruit is not a magical cure-all which can counteract the damaging effects of smoking, dehydration and stress on the skin. But, as part of a healthy lifestyle, grapefruit can promote wound healing and the production of collagen which gives you that younger, clearer glow.

If you’ve ever seen any advert for anti-ageing skin care, you will know collagen is a key competent of expensive cosmetics. But how does it work exactly?

Collagen is a protein that forms a kind of biological scaffold underneath the skin. Along with another protein, elastin, this scaffold supports the skin and keeps it looking plump and full of youth.

As we age, we lose collagen naturally which means that the protein scaffold can weaken in places, allowing the skin to sag and droop, causing fine lines and wrinkles.

Eating vitamin C rich grapefruits can help the body replenish its supplies of collagen to a certain extent, and help us avoid those telltale signs of ageing!

Summary:

Grapefruit increases production of collagen which can promote skin-cell regeneration and give your skin a younger, fuller appearance.
