Juices for amazing skin

Healthy skin is not just about what you put on it, it’s about what you put inside your body, too.
Juices for amazing skin
I asked my health guru buddy, Saimaa Miller from The Last Resort in Bondi, Sydney to give us her all time best recipes for amazing skin. They’re exclusive to us, dear readers, so enjoy!!

Oily and blemished skin

You’re going to benefit from a blend of  …
•    Carrot (filled with vitamin A, which is a fantastic anti-acne ingredient)
•    Grapefruit (citrus helps rebalance)
•    Orange (as with grapefruit)
•    Kiwi fruit (filled with skin clearing enzymes)

Acne and rosacea

Blend together …
•    Papaya (filled with skin calming and clearing enzymes)
•    Orange (as above, citrus fruits are great astringents and help clear blemishes)
•    Celery (an amazing anti-inflammatory)
•    Parsley (great for digestion, which aids in clearing the skin)
•    Lemon (another citrus fruit that also helps with digestion)

Sensitive skin

Try a yummy blend of …
•    Cucumber (super hydrating and filled with antioxidants)
•    Carrot (helps to cleanse the body of toxins, which in turn promotes a calming effect on the skin)
•    Beetroot  (again, an amazing detoxifying vegetable)
•    Coriander (great for helping to calm and heal eczema, dryness, and fungal infections)

Dry Skin

•    Cucumber (super hydrating)
•    Celery (again, super hydrating – and has loads of fibre, so helps to keep your system healthy)
•    Spinach (loaded with antioxidants, spinach also has powerful anti-inflammatory benefits)
•    Apple (amazing for rebalancing and clarifying)
•    Coconut water and flesh (incredibly hydrating)

Mature Skin

•    Blueberries
•    Blackberries
•    Raspberries (all the aforementioned berries have powerful antioxidant properties which are so helpful in strengthening and protecting your skin)
•    Kale (like spinach, this fills your system with antioxidants, fibre and anti-inflammatory benefits)
•    Spinach (loaded with antioxidants and also has powerful anti-inflammatory benefits)
•    Broccoli (great for strengthening the skin’s immunity and helping to prevent sun damage)
