Glow with These 4 Delicious Skin-Healthy Summer Smoothie Recipes
The perfect accessory for summer? You guessed it! Healthy, glowing skin, of course. Plenty of creams and ointments claim to give you that gorgeous glow, but at the end of the day, it really comes from within! Eating right is the best way to bring out the fabulous, youthful glow that you maybe didn't realize you still had.
These smoothies offer much of the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that you need to revitalize your skin. Bonus: They're incredibly delicious!
4. The Happy Belly Smoothie:While this smoothie is geared toward having a healthy gut, did you know that a healthy digestive system can result in radiant skin? This smoothie is chock-full of important probiotics and the blend includes both pineapple, which can help stimulate collagen production, and kombucha which has tons of nutrients that help to clear up your complexion. Did we mention it is totally yummers?
3. Glowing Skin Smoothie:The name says it all really. This yummy smoothie is made specifically to help you achieve glowing skin. Beautifully double-layered, and packed full of vitamin-enriched fruits and vegetables like spinach, pineapple, and mango, this is the ultimate summer smoothie. Although optional, be sure to add the spirulina powder and turmeric for extra boost and beauty.
2. Simple Vegan’s Glowing Skin Smoothie:While the name might be similar to the number 3 recipe on our list, this glowing skin smoothie has its own group of beneficial ingredients. Flax seeds for their anti-inflammatory properties as well as raspberries, bananas, and dates. The fruits provide a wide range of essential and beneficial vitamins and minerals. If you don’t mind giving up the pretty color, toss in some spinach, kale, or both, for an even bigger boost of complexion-saving nutrients.
1. Creamy Pineapple Cucumber Smoothie:Hydration is a huge factor when it comes to skin health. Dry, not-so-hydrated skin does not glow and it is also more prone to developing wrinkles. That’s why the addition of cucumber in this particular smoothie helps to make it number one. Cucumber is made up of 95% water, throw in coconut milk, fruits, such as bananas and pineapple, and greens and you have the perfect recipe for healthful, glowing, radiant skin.
Keep in mind, it takes more than a smoothie to keep your skin looking and feeling its best. Regular exercise and an overall healthy lifestyle need to also be considered when working towards glowing summer skin. Also, we don't mean to sound dramatic but all of the veggies and fruits in the world cannot save your skin from sun damage. NEVER, ever skip the sunscreen! ZINC IT OVER makes it easy to reapply and contains many of the same ingredients in some of the smoothies above! Now, repeat after us, "Self-care, sunscreen, and smoothies!"
