Are you constantly looking for ways to achieve a healthy, glowing complexion? Let’s be honest, who isn’t?
Love Grace believes getting that gorg glow is less about your skincare product routine and more of a result from your diet — the antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals in fresh produce can help illuminate the skin from within.
These 6 essential juice ingredients are easily accessible detoxifying aids that help flush out the toxins that accumulate in your liver and kidneys to naturally heal and rejuvenate your radiant complexion:
Parsley: This vibrant green herb contains the immune-enhancing vitamin C and is a powerful antioxidant. In fact, many spas use parsley for skin treatments because vitamin C not only nourishes the skin, it stimulates the production of collagen.
Cucumbers: Whether resting on your eyes or in your stomach, cucumbers contain vitamin C and have plenty of vitamin K, a powerful antioxidant, which fights dark circles under the eyes. Vitamin B-5 is also found in a cucumber that helps your skin retain moisture.
Spinach: These leafy greens aren’t just famous for its Popeye strength powers, but for helping repair your skin. The vitamin A in spinach is a naturally occurring antioxidant that keeps your skin cells healthy and repairs wounds.
Carrots: They’re full of color and also high in beta carotene, an antioxidant that is converted to vitamin A inside the body and helps repair skin tissue and protects against the sun’s harsh rays. Eating as little as one carrot a day helps improve skin color and may reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Aloe Vera: This herbal medicinal plant contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation.
Grapefruit: Like other citrus fruits, this pink beauty is rich in vitamin C. Grapefruit also has unique phytochemicals that help promote healthy collagen production as well as lycopene, a known cancer-fighting chemical.
Another juicy tip: around 8 glasses of (filtered) H20 a day will help keep the dullness away. Your skin, after all, is your body’s largest organ, so we must show it some love!
