As much as we love to play with bronzer, highlighter, and blush, nothing feels better than having naturally glowing skin. If you want the “woke up and looking beautiful” feeling, you can actually work toward beautiful skin, even when you’re not thinking about it. We dub this the “Amazing Skin Shake”, because after we tried it, we instantly felt more beautiful inside and out.
Vitamin A and E (converted from Beta-carotene): Fight premature aging, reduce the production of acne causing sebum, prevent rough, dry skin.
Vitamin B Complex: Promotes blood circulation throughout the body and help deliver nutrients to skin cells, regulate hormone production and combats stress, prevent dry cracked skin, eczema and pigmentation problems.
Vitamin C: Building compound of collagen, which gives skin elasticity.
Silica: Maintain nails, hair and skin health, and produce collagen.
Zinc: Needed to reduce inflammation and the effects of scarring.
Finally, our Amazing Skin Shake recipe:
Handful of Spinach
1 cup of Orange juice
1 cup of green peas or soy beans soaked for 1 hour (pick your poison)
Process through your juicer, or if you don’t have a juicer, blend all ingredients in a blender, and use a nut milk bag to strain out the fibre. For those with little time, just blend with ice and drink as a smoothie.
