Drinks For Beautiful Skin
The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful anti aging antidote or the slowest form of poison. In fact, every 35 days, your skin replaces itself. Your body makes new cells from the food you eat. What you eat literally becomes you.You have a choice in what you’re made of.
Having beautiful skin is a reflection of your internal state. If you’re healthy on the inside, it will show on the outside. The old adage is true: you are what you eat. Here are some ways you can eat & drink your way to beautiful skin.
Drink Water for Beautiful Skin
At least 70 percent of your body is comprised of water. It only makes sense that water is the most important liquid for beautiful skin. Every day, drink at least 8 glasses of water to keep your skin taut, elastic, and youthful. Herbal teas count towards your daily water intake. But for every cup of soda, black tea, or coffee you will need two cups of water to avoid dehydration.
Drink Hot Lemon Water
Lemon water is such a staple and is delicious when consumed hot like tea. It’s an excellent source of Vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. Lemon stimulates your liver to flush out toxins, resulting in a clearer complexion. When your liver is working well, the toxins don’t end up on your face in the form of acne. Vitamin C fights free radical damage which will keep your beautiful skin looking fresh and youthful. It also boosts collagen production leading to fewer wrinkles and fine lines.
Drink Green Tea
Green tea is known for being an antioxidant powerhouse because it’s rich in catechins and polyphenols. Catechins absorb UV light and protect your beautiful skin from aging UV damage. Polyphenols diminish inflammation in your body and protect you from the negative, aging effects of free radicals. Green tea is the optimal anti aging prescription as sun damage is the biggest contributor to premature aging.
Drink Green Juice
Green juice will benefit your health and your skin. You can use a different vegetable every day, or make your own blend. For a delicious anti aging smoothie recipe try blending 2 carrots, 1 beetroot, 3 leaves of spinach, a whole apple for sweetness, and a small piece of ginger for tartness. Carrots are rich in Vitamin A which boosts cell turnover, slowing oxidation (aging) and helping your body to rid itself of dull skin. Carrots also contain Vitamin C which will help your body to produce collagen. Collagen is essential for beautiful skin because it boosts elasticity and it prevents wrinkles.
Spinach and kale contain numerous vitamins and minerals which aid in the removal of waste from your body. Beets are blood and liver cleansers, rich in iron, zinc, folic acid, copper, and many other minerals. Ginger reduces inflammation making it the perfect antidote if you suffer from acne.
Try Herbal Supplements
Herbal supplements that detox your liver include milk thistle, dandelion root, fennel, peppermint, calendula, and nettle. They help to start the elimination process of toxins from both your liver and kidneys.
Drinking plenty of fluids will give you beautiful skin that glows. Without adequate water, your skin will look dull and dry, making fine lines more apparent. Drink water, lemon water, green juice and use detoxing herbal supplements so you can get your glow on. Not only will you feel good, your skin will look amazing!
