A smoothie for great skin

Our skin is the bodies largest organ, so it’s no wonder why we’re constantly looking for the things that help us protect it as best we can. From sunscreens to moisterisers, cleansers and facials – We are exposed to a plethora of skincare products and inundated with tips and tricks to prevent ageing and how best to keep blemishes away.

Another important way to look after your skin is to drink lots of water and eat healthy foods containing plenty of antioxidants and vitamins. Our smoothie recipe is full of the best ingredients for you, so you can drink your way to a clear and youthful complexion.

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Blueberries
1/4 cup Raspberries
1/4 cup Strawberries
1/4 cup Kale
1 Greek Yogurt (0% Fat)
1 tablespoon Honey
2 teaspoons Flax Seeds
1/4 cup Water

Berries are one of the best sources of antioxidants, and this smoothie is loaded with them. The antioxidants help protect your skin against the sun’s harmful rays as well as boost collagen production – basically natural botox. The fibre and protein found in Greek yogurt will help with your skin’s elasticity and flax seeds contain Omega-3 fatty acids which reduces redness and inflammation while also rehydrating your skin.

Enjoy!
