Grapefruit Skincare Routine

Get Glow-y with Grapefruit...On National Grapefruit Day

The hardest working ingredient in every one of our Grapefruit products is—surprise—Grapefruit Extract. It’s rich in Vitamin C and Lycopene (two antioxidant heavy hitters) which naturally help to make your skin tone more even and enhance glow, promoting healthier-, smoother- and softer-looking skin.

Any one of our Grapefruit products will help boost brightness, but to go all-in on glow, here’s how to build a simple yet effective grapefruit-infused regimen.

Brightening skincare routine

Step 1: Cleanse with the Grapefruit Daily Foaming Cleanser

  • This gentle foaming cleanser can be used AM or PM to remove makeup and cleanse skin without stripping, leaving it soft and prepped for AHA/BHA/PHA treatments by loosening dead skin cells.
  • Grapefruit Extract and Vitamin C work together to brighten skin and provide antioxidant benefits even on non-exfoliation days.

Step 2: Treat with the Grapefruit Daily Exfoliating Toner

  • A liquid toner that contains natural exfoliators to help skin appear smoother and brighter, this treatment is formulated with antioxidant-packed Grapefruit Extract and 10% fruit acids (AHAs + BHAs).
    • Lactic Acid (AHA): A gentler, exfoliating AHA to help keep skin soft
    • Glycolic Acid (AHA): A chemical exfoliant that penetrates skin deeply, helping skin feel firmer while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
    • Willow Bark Extract (BHA): Used in many skin treatments, helps clear pores and brighten skin

Step 3: Moisturize with the Grapefruit Daily Nourishing Lotion

  • After cleansing surface impurities and exfoliating away dead cells, your skin is ready to soak up a moisturizing blend of Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Avocado Oil.
  • Packed with fatty acids and vitamins, these emollient natural ingredients help form a protective barrier over skin to hold in moisture, nourishing skin and helping to improve skin elasticity.
  • Those moisture-sealing properties make this lotion an ideal follow-up to acid-based exfoliation.

Step 4: For sun (and screen) protection, follow with the Grapefruit Daily Mineral Lotion SPF 15

  • This broad-spectrum UVA/UVB mineral sunscreen (formulated with Non-Nanoparticle Zinc Oxide) uses Grapefruit Extract and Vitamin C to help keep skin glowing while providing an essential shield against sun damage and long-term blue light exposure.
  • Since AHAs can cause photosensitivity, this mineral lotion is a crucial step on exfoliation days.
  • Its creamy texture and Zinc Oxide blend in and absorb beautifully without leaving behind a greasy residue or white cast.

Bonus: Get an extra dose of glow with the Grapefruit Brightening Bubbling Paper Mask

  • Not necessary for everyday use (go ahead and pamper yourself once a week), this gentle cotton mask bubbles on contact to infuse skin with oxygen (to help purify) and Grapefruit Extract and Vitamin C (to help brighten skin’s appearance).

Happy glowing, and happy National Grapefruit Day!
