Simple, beautifying ingredients create a super yummy smoothie!
Beauty routines are typically made up of things we put on our bodies, but the foods we eat (and drink) also play a crucial role. If you’re looking to boost your beauty routine, you may want to consider this delicious and nutrient-packed snack! Based on our list of DIY Beauty Ingredients, we’ve created an All-Around Beauty Smoothie for you to get that natural glow. It’s filled with beautifying nutrients that will give your hair, skin, and nails a healthy boost.
Antioxidants for Skin Health
Antioxidants are the secret to skin health. Vitamins like vitamin A and C work wonders on your skin by helping to generate new cells and warding off the toxins that you come into contact with each day. We’ve created this smoothie with detoxifying ingredients to make sure you not only feel your best, but look your best, too!
Bright and Tangy Fruit
Brightly colored fruits like pineapple, oranges, and strawberries are high in vitamin C, an important antioxidant for skin health and collagen production. Pineapples also contain bromelain which is anti-inflammatory and can help reduce swelling and puffiness. Strawberries offer a special antioxidant called ellagic acid which helps with skin brightening and may help reduce wrinkles.
Banana is another fruit that gives you a nutrient boost. They contain potassium and vitamin A, which will hydrate and moisturize rough, dry skin, making it smooth, soft, and supple. Potassium may also soften hair and increase growth. Furthermore, bananas have natural oils that maintain the natural elasticity of the hair and prevent breakage.
High in vitamin A, spinach helps with the production of oil in your pores and hair follicles to moisturize the skin and hair without it getting too oily. It also helps with skin cell renewal, keeping you looking young and fresh! Spinach is high in iron as well, which is important for blood health. When you don’t have enough iron in your diet, you may notice flaky skin, brittle nails, and frizzy hair with lots of breakage. The spinach in this smoothie will give you a little iron boost to help you hit your daily iron-intake needs.
Coconut oil has been shown to reduce inflammation, moisturize skin, and help heal wounds. It is also packed with medium-chain fatty acids, which have antimicrobial properties that can help treat acne and protect the skin from toxins like harmful bacteria and carcinogens.
The added bonus in this smoothie is collagen. Collagen is a protein that is important for healthy hair, skin, and nails. It aids in cell renewal and helps prevent wrinkles by strengthening the bonds in skin that break down over time. Not only that, but it also supports healthy joints!
