Clear Skin Juice

Monday, 21 October 2013 21:01  by Jessica W.

Masks, peels, moisturizers and steams are all great ways to pamper our skin and get a bit of self-time in. But beautiful skin isn’t just the result of external self-care; what you put on the inside counts, too.

One great way to nourish your cells and improve your skin is to juice fresh fruits and vegetables. Our bodies detoxify themselves through the liver and skin. An inside-out approach combines powerful nutrients to help the skin clear itself of blemishes and impart a healthy glow.

Clear Skin Juice:

  • 2 carrots
  • 1-inch knob of ginger
  • ½ cucumber
  • ½ to 1 celeriac root
  • 1 green apple (can also use pear depending on your tastes)

Directions:

  1. Wash all ingredients well.
  2. Cut apple into smaller pieces and remove core and seeds.
  3. Cut celery root into small pieces.
  4. Juice and enjoy!

Celery root has a delicious fresh flavor, but if you do not care for it, you can use less or add an extra apple or pear. The root is full of electrolytes, potassium and magnesium. It also can stimulate kidney function, helping the body rid itself of toxins, and it normalizes the body’s pH balance. Other vegetables add more than bright flavor; the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of carrots and cucumbers calms inflamed skin and helps cells regenerate themselves, leaving you with a plump and healthy glow.

A combination of balanced diet, external self-care and positive attitude does wonders for the health of our skin. Eating healthfully and making plenty of time to recharge helps decrease stress and anxiety. When we are emotionally revitalized, we experience the physical benefits of good mental health like decreased inflammation and better skin. Try adding juices to your weekly self-care routine and see how they make you feel.
