BEAUTY truly from the inside out.
We often think about how the products that we put on our face are going to be the answer to the acne, the dry skin, as to the forming wrinkles… Well I’m here to tell you and BEAUTY truly begins from the inside to the outside!
In my many years of being a make up artist and now taking it further and really allowing people to know more about all that I have studied in my life about diet, and skincare. I want to bring them together and teach you the simple things you can do in your home and kitchen to make you glow!
The first smoothie to make you GLOW is a favorite of so many friends that I share it with. We start off with pineapple and Papaya, they contain a strong enzyme to help with your digestion, as well these same enzymes support hydration in the skin, and remove damaged and dead cells. When we add the soaked flax seeds they help remove the dryness of the skin and get the glow back on! Glow is a good thing when it comes from the foods that we eat.
GET GLOWING SMOOTHIE:
Coconut water 5 ounces
Ripe banana ½ peeled
Pineapple chunks fresh or frozen is my favorite ½ cup
Mango chunks fresh or frozen ¼ cup
Soaked flaxseeds 1 tablespoon
Blend Drink and Enjoy!
One of my favorite juices that I recommend to people often is a spicy concoction, that I love make due to the fact that it has a spicy and sweet side to it! This juice I always say is drinkable facial. I start with Radishes and watercress, Both a packed full of sulfur, which is great to maintain the elasticity in the skin as well helps to build collagen. The Radish is full of fiber so it really helps with digestion. I prefer to use green grapes that have seeds, this will give the grape seed oil and make sure you have a good source of fatty oil and packed with the antioxidants. This will add protection to the skin, as well the cucumber adds hydration and the ginger is great for digestion, but did you know it is also a great anti-inflammatory? I always feel this keeps your skin youthful and no needles needed!
SWEET AND SPICY JUICE:
Radish ½ cup
Green grapes with seeds 6 cups
Watercress about ½ bunch
Cucumber 1 large
Ginger to taste
Juice and reveal fresh skin!
Living in Colorado, We often have a feeling of dry and parched skin. We also find it hard to get through a workout, or tired mid day. These are assigns of being a little dehydrated… WHAT TO DO!
The reason so many people suffer from dehydration is they simple do not drink enough water of like the taste of water.
So a couple quick simple ways of making water a bit more appealing, and acheving the goal of drinking more water on a daily basis.
Drink more Herbal teas instead of coffee, Drink Hot or Cold water with fresh Lemon or I add the Doterra Lemon oil. Makes for a tasty drink , add some stevia if needed.
So get the morning started with your Water intake complete, a Green Juice or smoothie, and you’ll find your cells begging for it on a daily basis.
HYDRATION GREEN JUICE:
Celery half of a head
Kale 1 bunch
A knob of ginger 1
Stevia added to sweeten of desired. This juice is a great way to make sure you get the hydration to the areas it is needed to maintain optimal health, but as well keeping us GLOWING!
