When it comes to skincare, there are lots of lotions and potions to try and many you must have tried. Sometimes, though, the key to beautiful, clear, blemish-free skin is treating the problem from the inside out.
For treating your skin inside out, smoothies are key. Smoothies are easy to prepare yourself, but you can also purchase fresh or bottled ones from specialty cafés and most major grocery stores.
Many smoothies include frozen produce or ice cubes to give the final product the cool, icy consistency of a milkshake.
Your body should be treated specially and here are some of the top shared skin improving smoothies that can work wonders on your skin:
Water, spinach, romaine lettuce, lemon, celery, banana, pear, and apple smoothie works beautifully on the skin. This is one of the most valued smoothies and promises to keep your skin cells plump and glowing.
Another is a smoothie with a base of plain yogurt, coconut oil, spirulina, spinach, kale, and banana. This smoothie is supposed to pave the way for smooth skin, clear up acne, and speed up hair and nail growth too.
Coconut and raspberry? What is not to like. Healthy essential fatty acids from the coconut and chia seeds are really good for the skin.
Blueberries, spinach, anti-inflammatory kale, and acne-fighting Greek yogurt are good for detoxing. Also, this is refreshing and certainly will make your skin glow.
For improving skin tone, use a mix of avocado, mango, spinach or kale, and coconut water. Blend all of these together, you can add lime or ginger.
For the beauty smoothie, water and coconut-based smoothie are used and it is all about hydration. Other ingredients include kale, banana, berries, and hemp seeds.
When making smoothies at home, aim to include a balanced combination of carbs, fiber, protein, and healthy fats.
