Here is a delicious juice from Katrine Van Wyk’s amazing book Best Green Drinks Ever that promotes healthy, dewy, and glowing skin!
The cucumber hydrates and contains silica, known for its amazing skin toning benefits. Remember to get all of your ingredients organic when possible, especially your greens as they are heavily sprayed crops.
Skin Tonic Juice
1/2 lemon, peeled
1/2 mango, peeled and pitted
1 cup of purslane
Handful of cilantro
Place all ingredients through a juicer. Alternate between the cucumber and mango, and the purslane and the cilantro to help move everything through smoothly.
* Purslane Booster * Purslane is a green weed high in essential omega-3 fatty acids. Since the body does not produce Omega-3 on its own, it needs to acquire it through food. Omega-3s help to lower inflammation. With any skin issues like acne, eczema, it is important to get a substantial amount of this anti-inflammatory fatty acid.
If you are feeling a little lack luster, try this juice to boost your skin’s glow. For more delicious green juice recipes check out Katrine’s book: Best Green Drinks Ever
