Winter weather has a tendency to leave our complexion feeling dull, dry, and prone to breakouts. Along with changing up my skincare routine, I also make it a point to regularly whip up this delicious smoothie to hydrate and nourish my skin from the inside. No amount of creams and serums can have the huge effect that drinking this does. If I drink it four days in a row, by the fifth day, I can see a major difference in the look and feel of my skin. It’s clearer, brighter and way less dry.
All you need is a blender and a few of the veggies / fruits listed below. Jam-packed with eye-brightening spinach, antioxidant-rich watercress, skin brightening and repairing parsley, ultra-nutritious avocados, and skin-smoothing pears, its creamy consistency fills me up for hours, and it’s a great substitute for a full breakfast when you’re pressed for time. Make a glass for yourself today – your skin (and health) will thank you.
4 ice cubes
1 handful of spinach, full of iron, potassium and lutein, which will bring that sparkle back to your skin and eyes
1 handful of watercress, a powerhouse antioxidant with more iron than spinach and calcium than milk
1 handful of parsley, a superfood with tons of vitamin C, beta carotene which repairs skin cells, and chlorophyll and vitamin K for depuffing and erasing under eye circles
½ ripe avocado, which adds a delicious creamy texture and a ton of nutrients
1 pear, to sweeten
1 lime, to alkalize your body
Blend, and serve chilled and with ice
