Get glowing skin with smoothies

 

Moisturizing your skin and being consistent with your skincare regimen is a great way to getting a glowing skin but that’s not the only thing to do when you want a beautiful and healthy skin glow.

Not everyone realizes that what you eat and drink plays a huge role in your skin glow. When we make unhealthy food choices, signs of it can show up in a form of acne, dry skin, dark circles, wrinkles and stunted hair growth. The cause of these problems can actually be skin deep.

I am a firm believer that a beautiful skin starts from the inside. What you eat reflects on your body and skin. That is why I use a holistic approach for my clients during my skincare consultations. I focus on both the beauty products and their diet.

Certain foods contain vitamins and other nutrients that help in clearing up bad skin and evening your skin complexion.

There are fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidants and vitamins to help you get a clear skin and reduce the skin aging process.

Fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins, A, B, C, K and beta-carotene are good for getting that flawless and youthful skin glow.

Fruits and veggies containing carotene are great for getting that sun kissed glow. I took carrot juice consistently for a month and I noticed I got a golden hue in my complexion.

It’s really important to mix carotene fruits and veggies with healthy fats to get the most of it. If you are making a smoothie, just blend them with healthy fats like avocado.
