Remember the good old days when we use to grab the grapes and enjoy the last bit of its juice on our tongue when we were young? Yes!! This juicy fruit has a lot of health benefits that we are not aware about, especially for hair and skin – our two most important parts of beauty! Lets have a look…..
SKIN CARE: Grapes are loaded with phytochemicals, phytonutrients and antioxidants (proanthocyanidins and resveratrol) that take good care of your skin by fighting off the harsh oxidative radicals that damage your skin. Also, it is rich in vitamin C, which is extremely vital for skin health. Infact, in cases of skin burn- apply few mashed grapes on the affected, leave it for some time and rinse with cold water! It acts as a sunscreen and reduces the redness at the affected area.
ANTI-AGING AND WRINKLE-FREE SKIN: Wrinkles are one of the most common signs of ageing and we dread them the most, especially women! So, here’s a natural remedy to overcome this dreadful threat! Take the pulp of few seedless grapes and rub it in a circular motion all over face. Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with cold water. Apart from being antioxidant rich (that’s how it protects your skin from the harmful UV radiation and any other oxidative damage), it is also rich in Vitamin –C which helps in the formation of collagen, a protein that helps in retaining skin elasticity and reverses ageing!
HAIR FALL ISSUES: Upset with the increasing hair fall issues? Don’t worry, just grab few grapes, mash them, and apply the pulp all over your hair. Leave it for some time and rinse it off!! The linoleic acid in grapes (and grapeseed oil, if used) strengthens the follicles and make your hair stronger!
So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and grab those green and black bunches from the market! Clear skin and stronger hair is what you will finally achieve!!!
