Drink Your Way To Flawless Skin

Drink Your Way To Flawless Skin

You have probably heard of the phrase ‘you are what you eat’ so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear that what you are consuming could be messing up your skin. There is no need to worry, however; you can make amends simply by drinking juice.

We all know that fruits and veggies are good for our skin and health in general, but what we are really interested in here is the best juice for clearing skin. There are five fruits and veggies in particular that you should really make part of your diet if you want clear and flawless skin these are: apples, cucumbers, parsley, pineapples and carrots.

Carrots contain vitamin A, which plays a major role in keeping skin cells healthy. Cucumber consumption leads to skin hydration. Apples lower the rate of tissue damage hence keeping the skin looking young and healthy; pineapples improve skin elasticity while parsley cleanses the skin of toxins hence preventing acne among other things.

The idea here is simple; blend all these fruits and veggies together and drink the resulting juice. Don’t add any sugar, just a bit of water to reduce the viscosity. If you can’t handle this particular mixture in its entirety, simply blend one or two at a time. A mixture of apple and pineapple, for example, is quite appealing. Parsley, cucumber and carrot juice isn’t too bad either; it might, however, take some getting used to.  A regular dose of these juices and you are guaranteed to have clear, smooth and healthy skin even as you advance in age.
