You’re probably already doing a world of good to your skin, and you don’t even know it. We’re not going to spend the next five minutes pointing out your skincare mistakes and recommending three-step DIYs, but give you a little insight on how you’ve been, or could be, taking care of your skin by sipping on the right liquids.
Much like there is a juice cleanse for the body, there is one for the skin too. It nourishes your body from the inside out, and can take care of those blemishes and acne spots in due time.
Here are some beauty solutions you probably already have in your fridge:
The essential oils in carrots will help hydrate your skin, while the vitamin A will take care of sun damage and signs of aging.
Juice from beets hits bulls-eye by regenerating damaged liver cells and improving your digestive functions while eliminating toxins.
Apple juice is rich in antioxidants and can repair cell damage, while increasing the natural production of collagen in the skin.
The essence of this vegetable is great for eliminating toxins. Celery juice contains a potent mineral called silica, which improves the elasticity of the skin, and also strengthens your nails and hair.
This source of vitamin C and potassium can help treat acne, and scar tissue too. Be sure to include the core of the fruit when juicing pineapples, as it contains an essential enzyme called bromelain that can break down undigested proteins.
In the end, fresh raw vegetable and fruit juices provide true sustenance to our skin, and aid the functioning of the liver—the organ that is responsible for removing toxins from our body and purifying our blood. Don’t head to the supermarket, but invest in a juicer and start stocking these beauty solutions right away.
