Best Smoothies For Clear Acne-Free Skin

Posted on October 09 2019

How Smoothies Can Improve Your Skin

Smoothies are a great way to take in all the healthy nutrients. Most people don’t get the recommended amount of vegetables in their diet and we know that they are a source of vitamins and minerals.

Skin health is often ignored when we talk about our health in general and the food we eat. But if you talk to dermatologists and skincare experts they will tell you how important what we put in our body is.

We see a lot of skincare products, masks & cremes, cleansers & serums, with ingredients that we find in our vegetables and most people don’t know that they work best if we ingest them rather than putting them on our skin. When we eat or drink these vegetables, in any form, our whole body benefits from the nutrients, not only the skin.

So instead of rubbing tons of chemicals on your skin, next time you think of nourishing it start thinking inside out.

 

The Best Acne-Fighting Smoothie Ingredients

 

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is rich in healthy fats which our metabolic system breaks down into potent antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal agents within the body. These attack the bacteria in our organism which are one of the main causes of acne.

Some people use coconut oil as a moisturizer but it is even better if we ingest it with food in our day to day life.


Avocado

Avocado is an incredible ingredient for your health in general and your skin specifically. It is highly hydrating due to the monounsaturated fatty acids and a lot of people put it in their organic masks. Avocado is not only very healthy but is incredibly delicious as well. That is why it is one of the most popular vegetables.


Cucumber

Cucumbers are 95% water and that’s why they are a great source of hydration for the skin. Not only are they like a drink of water for your skin but they are also great at reducing redness and irritation due to the anti-inflammatory phytonutrients they contain.

 

Turmeric

Turmeric contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components. This ground spice is present in many dishes but did you know that you can add it to your smoothies as well. Turmeric also helps revive your skin by bringing out the natural glow.


Collagen

Collagen is a protein that forms the connective tissue for almost all of the structures including strengthening your bones and providing your skin with structure.

Your body naturally produces collagen every day but around the age of 25, this production starts to slow down. We break down more collagen than we make, so that's why wrinkles start to appear.


Acne-Fighting Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies are one of the easiest ways of taking in all the incredible vitamins and minerals that are so good for our skin. They are easy to drink & fast to make and you can take it with you at the gym or at work.

These smoothies contain ingredients that soothe your skin and fight bacteria which allow the acne to form. These ingredients also make you feel better and healthier in general by giving you the energy you need during the day.
