From age-defying hair styles to skinny jeans and wrinkle serums, there are tons of tricks out there that promise to instantly peel years off your looks...
... no exercise or plastic surgery required.
We've found one trick that really does make you appear younger- even when standing stark naked without any makeup;and that's grapefruit!
A study conducted by the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago found that the scent of the pucker-provoking fruit can actuallytrick the male brain into believing that the women around them are six years younger than their actual age.
So how do you ensure that the citrus scent is infusing your man's senses on a regular basis?
Start with a bowl of grapefruit in the morning (grapefruit juice will do too), exfoliate your skin with pink grapefruit suds, and finally spritz on grapefruit essential oil perfume. Heck, why not sneak a dab of oil behind your ears?
Of course, if your goal is to pull the grapefruit wool over the heads of more than a select few (like, say, at a holiday party or high school reunion), maybe stick to the serums which are more intense and longer lasting.
I love to go the pink grapefruit candle route to blanket the room with age-reversing scent and cover all your bases; plus it smells so fresh and invigorating!
Smelling is believing, we all know aromatherpy works with it's proven track record.
