SGS rawkstar Erin here today, talking about how to get clear skin. Jen asked if I’d share a bit of my natural beauty journey with ya’ll, so let’s go! Most of my life I’ve been a full makeup kind of gal, because I did NOT have good skin. It was sensitive, prone to breakouts, and splotchy. I tried every cleanser, soap, mask, and more to try and tame my face, shoulders, and arms, yet nothing worked. After trying one of her creations, I was intrigued, but such a newbie. I first swore I’d never drink a green smoothie without dairy. Then I started adding water (and got a high powered blender). Then I said I’d never put kale in it. Now I literally have a 4-foot by 4-foot container garden of kale. That’s 18 kale plants that I treat like my own offspring. Finally, I said I’d never leave the house without makeup. These days, you’ll only find me in makeup on date night. Why? Because I discovered the secret of the clear skin diet, and I’m never going back.
Translation: glowing gorgeous skin comes from green smoothies!
This smoothie’s designed to naturally detox your body without leaving you feeling deprived… and still taste great!
Cilantro is a powerhouse herb that binds to heavy metals in the body and pulls them out naturally. Initially, your skin can get worse as the detoxing process begins. You may see more acne, yet don’t give up! If drink this daily and follow a plant-based diet, your skin will transform before you eyes.
I love the natural sweetness of the pineapple. It’s also known to help those days where you spent too much time in the sun. It happens to us all and we pay for it always! This smoothie will help repair your skin quicker and reduce the symptoms of a sun burn.
I hope you blend it and love it as much as I do! And I’d appreciate a review below once you’ve made it and experienced the “glow.” Happy blending!Print
Antioxidants help to prevent and repair damage to body tissues, our skin included. Vitamin C is one of the greatest antioxidants we have available, and it’s abundant in pineapple. The addition of avocado brings with it other skin-specific nutrients such as vitamins E, A and zinc. In fact, you could probably use this smoothie on your face as a beauty treatment! // serves 1
