True beauty is about health, happiness and a passion for life. One of the first places that we notice this type of exuberant and energising beauty is in healthy, glowing skin, You can always notice when a person's skin and eyes are glowing - they look energised, happy and clear.
When our skin is clear and blemish-free, it is less tempting for us to cover it with heavy make-up and harsh products. We are big believers in ‘feeding’ our skin with nutrient dense foods, just like our bodies. Check the ingredients of any skincare product to make sure that you can eat it before you feed it to the largest organ in the body that’s responsible for protection, regulation and absorption.
This green smoothie is a creamy, delicious ‘skin food.’ With avocado, peppermint and coconut oil on the ingredients list, it’s jam packed full of fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins that will promote a healthy glow on the inside and out.
