Listen up wine lovers. Grapes aren’t just great to drink, but they’re also amazing for skin. Thanks to Stylecraze for pointing out some of the things that this queen of fruits can do.

1. Protection Against Sunburns

Sometimes, the sun is so harsh that we end up getting sunburned even if we have applied sunscreen. And sometimes, we may even forget to slather on some. No worries, nature has a solution for all problems. Grapes, surprising as it might sound, are a great home remedy for sunburns.

What You Need

A few mashed grapes

What You Have To Do

1. Apply the mashed grapes gently and generously on the affected area.
2. Leave it on for around 30 minutes before washing it off with cold water.

Why Does It Work

The fleshy part of the grapes, as well as the extract of their seeds, contain proanthocyanidins and resveratrol that are powerful antioxidants. The application of grape seed extract on the skin provides protection against harmful ultraviolet radiation. It acts as a sunscreen by reducing the redness caused due to sunburns and also minimizes the damage borne by the skin cells.

2. Reverses Aging

Grapes also help in toning your skin and reversing the ageing process. Rather than opt for chemical-laden products, try using grapes. They are excellent anti-ageing agents.

What You Need

Pulp of seedless grapes

What You Have To Do

1. Rub the pulp on your face in a circular motion.
2. Rinse with cool water after 20 minutes.

Why Does It Work

Free radicals are the main cause of premature ageing. It is characterized by the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the skin. The antioxidants present in the grapes protect the skin from the harmful effects of the free radicals and reverse the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots. Grapes contain vitamin C that is necessary for the formation of collagen, a fibre-like protein that helps retain skin elasticity and reverses aging.

3. Makes Skin Supple

To make our skin supple and smooth, we resort to means like using baby products or spending a bomb on imported cosmetics. But, did you know that grapes are great exfoliating agents that can make your skin baby soft? You don’t ever have to spend on store-bought products again if you include grapes in your skin care regimen.

What You Need

Grape seed extract.

What You Have To Do

1. Use it to gently scrub your face.
2. Wash it off with cold water.

Why Does It Work

Grape seed extract is rich in vitamin E and retains the moisture of the skin. This extract also acts as an exfoliant. Scrubbing the skin with it results in the removal of the top layer of dead cells, resulting in healthier and smoother skin.

4. Combats Uneven Skin Tone

Many of us experience uneven tanning, with our face looking all patchy and discoloured. But, thankfully green grapes are very effective in curing uneven skin tones.

What You Need

Fresh grape juice or pulp.

What You Have To Do

1. Apply freshly squeezed grape juice or pulp on your skin.
2. Let it dry. Rinse it off with cool water.

Why Does It Work

Grape pulp has been found to improve skin tone owing to the presence of polyphenols. So, don’t hesitate to use grape juice to even out your skin.

5. Helps In Lightening Scars

Adolescence is a phase in which many of us get acne. However, as we grow up, they seem to disappear gradually. But, the scars never go! But don’t worry, grapes can help you lighten scars that are caused due to acne.
