Can you not seem to achieve the beautiful complexion that you see in all of the magazine and TV ads? Worry no more because that flawless face is closer than you think. No spa visits or expensive products necessary. All you need to do is add one of these ingredients to your favorite smoothie and see your look go from drab to fab!
Forget lathering on the sunblock or picking up one of the latest antioxidant serum, just toss in one of these nutritious goodies:
For younger looking skin you should be adding Chia Seeds. These little guys are the highest source of omega-3s, a type of fatty acid that benefits your skin by strengthening cell membrane barriers that allow water and nutrients in while keeping toxins out.
For a healthier skin tone you can add some Kale to your smoothie. Yes, it is not the most appealing add in, but Kale is chock-full of carotenoids that will help your complexion in a major way.
To help repair any damaged skin it is suggested that you add a bit of coconut. This because coconut oil contains lauric acid, which has antimicrobial properties. Plus, Coconut is packed with vitamin E, which is essential for healthy skin growth and repair.
To assist in reducing inflammation add some creamy Avocado. This green fruit is loaded with vitamins C, E and K, which are essential for healthy skin. Plus, it can also help reduce dryness and irritation. Load up on antioxidant power!
To help even out and smooth skin for the very softest touch, toss in some berries. They may be miniature, but they are big on beautifying benefits for your skin. Berries are full of antioxidant compounds that neutralize damaging free radicals that lead to skin cell damage and premature skin aging.
