We've all heard about the grapefruit diet working wonders on your waistline and how the smell of citrus has been clinically proven to make your man melt, but I have yet another cool and quick tip reserved for your ripest ruby reds.
Back in the 1930's silent film star Thelma Todd was known to dip her elbows in a pair of grapefruit halves in order to whiten and soften those rough and often neglected patches of skin.
I'm not doubting it. The citric acid works as a great and sweet smelling exfoliator. Just rest them in that pulpy grapefruit goodness for 5 minutes, dry and follow up up with a light rub of extra virgin olive oil that is rich in skin repairing vitamin E for a complete beauty treatment guaranteed to brighten up dem 'bows.
