Love it or hate it, grapefruit packs some major benefits, particularly in the skin-care department. Antioxidant- and vitamin-rich, this citrusy super fruit not only reenergizes the senses thanks to its delicious scent, but it’s also bursting with extracts such as Vitamin C, citric acid, and lycopene that help to even skin tone, exfoliate, and protect against UV-ray damage.
