August 24th, 2015
Having healthy and luminous skin isn’t just about what you put on your skin, it’s also about what you eat and drink. Vitamins and antioxidants are often found in smoothies, making them a healthy and delicious treat. To help your body keep your skin hydrated and healthy from the inside out, start taking a look at the ingredients in your favorite smoothies- premade or custom-made in your own kitchen. It’s no surprise that smoothies and green juices are all the rage lately, but which ingredients in these smoothies are actually good for your skin and which are just filler?
- This Glowing Skin Smoothie recipe is a fruity way to get all your nutrients in. This specific recipe includes avocado, which not only hydrates the skin but gives it a summer glow year-round. Mangoes and pineapples are two fruits that contain carotenoids, which help revive dull-looking skin. Kale (or spinach if you prefer the taste of it) contains lot of antioxidants which work to remove toxins from the body and skin. Lastly, the coconut water works to hydrate the skin.
- This Glowing Skin Berry Smoothie recipe promises similar results but with quite a few different ingredients. Ingredients include a variety of berries, which are a great source of antioxidants to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. The addition of flax seeds works to reduce irritation and inflammation in the skin due to their high level of omega-3 fatty acids.
- This Healthy Banana Almond Smoothie is a great alternative to the traditional, sugary dessert. The smoothies top ingredient is bananas, which do wonders for the skin. They are full of potassium, which hydrates and moisturizes dehydrated skin and B-vitamins, which protect against free radicals that cause premature aging.
