Celebrate National Grapefruit Month with Pink Cocktails
February is recognized as the month of love, but it’s also known as National Grapefruit Month. While this superfruit certainly offers a distinctive taste, it’s also a power-food. This sweet and tangy citrus fruit helps boost the immune system during the winter months when colds and flus are at their peak. Rich in healthy antioxidants and vitamins A and C, grapefruit extract can also work as an astringent, ideal for oily and acne-prone skin.
