Get your glow on
with this delicious & beginner friendly green juice. You can make it in the blender to save the fiber and help flush out toxins more efficiently.
Since our skin is a reflection of our internal organs, why not feed it from the inside out? Skin needs vitamins A and C to repair damaged cells and regenerate fresh, healthy cells and collagen. Collagen enables our skin to stay plump and juicy, and it contributes to the fresh new cells that give skin its smooth appearance. We see these 2 vitamins in all of the topical creams targeting clear, beautiful skin; doesn't it makes sense to get these vitamins internally as well?
Since it can be difficult to eat 5 servings of vegetables on a daily basis, a green juice is a great way to "sneak" them into your diet.
