In order to ameliorate your skin, start to juice.
Summer is in full swing and the best accessory to have this season is radiant, glowing skin, which can be done with juice. Not all of us have naturally glowing skin and we all want to achieve that JLO- and Kim-K-glow somehow, so any way we can get it is worth a try.
Of course we all want our skin to stand out in our favorite mini dresses and low back tops this summer, and achieving it is simple and healthy! Skip the moisturizers and makeup and opt for vegetables and fruits. I recently purchased a NutriBullet and it has been my absolute best friend. I love juicing anything and everything. Healthy is the new trend lately and it provides so many benefits, especially for your skin.
One recipe I have been drinking a lot lately and have been seeing massive improvements in my skin is one involving red cabbage, beetroot, carrot, cucumber, orange and lime. Red cabbage, orange and lime are super high in vitamin C, which helps boost collagen and powerful antioxidants, which protect cells from free radical damage. Beetroot contains zinc and copper, which are very vital for obtaining healthy skin.
Ginger reduces inflammation, which is helpful for any irritated and red pimples, or acne you may have on your face or body. Cucumbers are very very important! Whether you decide to skip the juicing process, just having cucumber for a snack is the best for your skin, plus it is super delicious! They are very hydrating, which is perfect for obtaining soft and supple skin.
Lastly, carrots contain antioxidant beta-carotene, which is also very good for your skin. All these fruits and vegetables alone can help improve your skin, but all together when juiced is the most effective and beneficial way. Just blend all the ingredients besides the orange and lime, which you squeeze separately and add in after, and you are good to go.
Glowing skin is super-in this summer and by drinking this simple juice it will make you look and feel a whole lot better! Also, if you don’t have the time to buy the ingredients and blend them together, you can buy pre-made juices anywhere.
