I’m all about beauty and skincare. Skincare is one of the most important things to me and despite my troublesome skin (I’m seeing a dermatologist) I take excellent care of my skin. So, when I get a breakout it always bugs me because I know how well I take care of it. I’m an oily girl with combination/acne prone skin. I have been through countless skincare regimens and am just now starting with a prescription. I did find out that part of it was due to something internal, but more on that in another post.
I know lots of people say acne has to do with diet and I’m actually a vegetarian ( 10 years) on her journey to being vegan. So, my diet is rather healthy and shouldn’t really effect my skin. Despite this, I’m still a sucker when I see something that says,”Eat this or drink that and it will give you beautiful skin.” This is where the green smoothies make an appearance. I actually drink one to two green smoothies everyday. I love them I love the taste and I love how they make my body feel. The one green smoothie that I drink almost every single day is supposed to be great for your skin.
It contains spinach, celery, cucumber, apple and coconut water. I definitely vary it sometimes depending what I have in my kitchen, but it’s delicious. Sometimes, I’ll add a splash of orange juice or include a banana. Chia seeds and hemp seeds are great super foods. Cucumber contains potassium, magnesium and silica which is believed to improve complexion and youthful radiance of your skin. Yes, please!
1 cup of Spinach (packed)
6 stalks of celery
1 cup of coconut water – and then I add more until I get the consistency I want!
— this will make enough for two smoothies.
