Today I wanted to share one of my favorite smoothies for clear and healthy skin. A good skin care routine can certainly help and should be included in your overall skin care equation, but diet is going to be at the root of the issue. There is no one-size-fits-all answer but adding more greens to your diet is a great place to start on your journey to better skin. Here's why:
Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin. One cup of spinach contains more than 50% of the recommended daily value. Leafy greens are high in antioxidants that help prevent inflammation which can cause skin issues like acne and eczema. Bananas are high in vitamin C, magnesium, and vitamin B6 which create the "glow" look. Pineapples are full of antioxidants that prevent cell damage. Pineapples also increases collagen synthesis which keeps skin firm and youthful. All the ingredients in this smoothie come together to make the perfect blend for healthy skin!
