We spend so much time focused on what we put on our skin (and rightfully so), to improve its look, feel and texture, but it's important to think about how our lifestyle affects it too.
Your lifestyle, stress levels, sleep patterns, and diet all have a massive impact on what you see in the mirror.
Making changes to all these aspects of your lifestyle can be hard, but incorporating healthy drinks is an easy and delicious way to start. So here is an easy smoothie recipe that will also support skin health and beauty!
Smoothie for radiant skin:
- 1 red beet, medium, trimmed, cut into 2-inch chunks
- 1 apple, any variety, cut into 2-inch chunks
- 3 carrots, ends trimmed, cut into 2-inch chunks
- 1 orange, juiced
- 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled
- 1 cup cold water
Add all of these ingredients to a blender, mix and enjoy!
Red beet juice acts a great blood purifier, which is key in keeping your skin glowing and healthy. Beets are also rich in vitamin C which helps in clearing blemishes and evens out your skin tone while giving it a natural glow.
Apples have a lot of antioxidants that help prevent cell and tissue damage. They also contain abundant amounts of elastin and collagen that help keep the skin young.
The beta carotene and vitamin C in carrot juice help protect your skin from ultraviolet (UV) damage and free radicals.
Antioxidants found in oranges fight free radicals, which may slow down the production of wrinkles, and stop premature aging. Oranges have a high content of citric acid which aids in skin exfoliation and helps to dry out acne, improving the overall look of your skin.
The antioxidants in ginger can be used to help preserve your skin's collagen, making it an all-natural ingredient for anti-aging routines.
I hope you enjoy this smoothie for radiant skin!
