Fresh Juices For Ethnic Beauties
You're no stranger to juicing, especially when it comes to health and wellness. Green drinks and smoothies have become a way of life for a lot of you. They help keep the weight off, fill you up with the right nutrients and don't overwhelm the body. You know these drinks to support and build your immune system, provide you with your daily intake of Omega-3 fatty acids.
But What About Your Skin Care Needs?
Did you know that carrot juice is considered the ultimate skin care ingredient because it contains vitamin A. Vitamin A is known to combat signs of aging and help with treating acne challenges. Spinach supports the cell membranes of your skin and helps it retain water. The more moisture you have in your skin the less susceptible it will be to fine lines and wrinkles. With all of this great news, your blender or food processor can help you whip up a little TLC for your skin whenever it's needed.
Want to give it a go? Here are 2 recipes:
Fresh Cucumber Toner - Cucumbers are said to be great for summer skin care. It's juice has been known to ease the pain of sunburn. Fresh mint is part of this recipe and the vitamin C in mint rejuvenates and acts as a natural preservative in the toner.
