The fruit basket at Yes to Carrots is growing with the introduction of their new line, Yes to Grapefruit. Each of the seven new offerings is designed to correct and repair discolouration. "A lot of customers are growing up with us and are now looking for something a little bit different," founder Ido Leffler told WWD. "[They are] starting to worry about how they look in regards to complexion." Grapefruit is a proven remedy for dark spots and has anti-inflammatory benefits, too. The line includes body wash, eye cream, serum, face scrub, body cream, face moisturiser, and the Yes To fan favourite, cleansing wipes. The products will be available in chemists in the US from this March, but we'll keep you posted on Australian on-sale dates. Even as Yes To grows, the brand maintains its devotion to natural beauty (some products are up to 99 percent natural). If you snubbed carrots, passed on tomatoes, side-stepped cucumbers, and brushed off blueberries, the tropical scent and bright packaging will have you saying Yes To grapefruit!

Rooibos is a naturally-decaffeinated and full-bodied tea that comes from a bright-green needled shrub in South Africa. When the needles are processed they turn red, and in Afrikaans, rooibos actually means red bush.
Not only is rooibos low in tannins, but it has a strong aroma and is one of the most popular drinks in South Africa. In addition to tasting delicious and being an excellent source of antioxidants (it contains higher concentrations than other teas), it can also be used as a toner to reduce puffiness and redness, especially around your eyes.
