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.
