Everyone knows that eating a diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables is important to keep the body healthy and strong. But did you know that grapes, topically applied, can help heal skin conditions like acne, rosacea and eczema? There’s no gripe about it, grapes can do wonders for the face!
You might be asking “What is it about grapes that make them so powerful?” One word, grapeseed. Grape seed and grapeseed oils are packed with essential fatty acids, antioxidants and Vitamins C, D and E. When these forces combine, not only do they treat irritating skin problems; they can also turn back the hands of time by fighting fine lines and wrinkles. The antioxidants found in grapeseed can also help fight against environmental factors that cause premature aging such as, sun exposure, pollution and wind.
Unlike coconut oil, grapeseed oil is light so it won’t leave your skin feeling greasy and weighed down. Don’t believe us? Try this anti-aging facial at home and see for yourself!
