Skincare Smoothie Sunday? Yes, Please!
Skincare Smoothie Sunday is our favourite! Who doesn’t love a refreshing smoothie to start the day or as an energy boost? Fresh fruit and veggies are nature’s candy, after all…so taking advantage of their powerful impact on our skin from the inside out is a no-brainer.
If you aren’t already setting aside time each week to show yourself a little extra love from the inside out with some healthy treats—especially ones that double as an amazing boost for healthy skin—then the time is now!
When you think of skincare, you probably think of your daily routine of cleansers, essence, serums and moisturizers. Of course these are vital to obtaining and retaining healthy-looking, beautiful skin. But remember…you are what you eat! So be sure to feed your skin right!
It’s All Good
So what is it exactly that makes a smoothie so great for your skin? There are so many benefits to feeding your glow other than the taste bud bliss.
First, you’ll be using fresh fruits and veggies, which are an incredible and natural source of vitamins and nutrients. Artificial ingredients please step away from the blender! And forget about adding any processed sugars to your blend, too. Fruit has natural sugars built right in, so no need for anything extra!
Most of the ingredients you will use are compliments of Mother Nature—and a great source of and antioxidants—something your skin will definitely thank you for.
