BEAUTY SMOOTHIE

My amazingly talented cousin Claire, who’s behind all my videos, is the master-mind behind The Kitchy Kitchen.  It’s filled with wonderful recipes, lifestyle tips, beautiful photography, and now a collaboration with yours truly.  I’m so excited to be a part of her monthly beauty series and this month I whipped up a beauty smoothie.  Check it out on her blog here and read below!

In addition to creams, exfoliants, and moisturizers, what you eat has a direct correlation with your skin.  The ingredients in this beauty smoothie helps with a whole slew of stuff like anti-aging, redness, hydration, acne; and it tastes delicious.

Pineapple not only adds sweetness, but also contains alpha-hydroxy acid – an ingredient in wrinkle creams, and a rich source of the antioxidant, vitamin C.  Kale also contains vitamin C, A and E, which help promote healthy cell regrowth.  Ginger does wonders for acne and oil control.  Apples, also rich in vitamin C, contain B vitamins as well, that combat acne and irritation.  Cucumbers provide hydration as well as anti-inflammatory properties, vitamins B and C, zinc, iron, and folic acid. Drink up!
