Smoothies to help you sip your way to good skin!

What better time than the start of a new year to make some healthy changes to your diet? We only say this because we still haven’t given up on our ambitious resolutions, and it also seems like a really good time to give our skin a much needed detox – both, inside and out.  So, while we’re on the subject, here are some smoothies that your skin (and body) will absolutely love…

½ cup of fresh pineapple juice

Method:

Benefits:
We’ve already spoken at length about why papaya can work wonders for your skin – the primary of which is the fact that it contains a big dose of Vitamin C as well as helps in healing skin wounds and inflammations.

avocado cocoa smothie for skin 600x400

Avocado and cocoa smoothie to help in the growth of new skin tissue

You will need:
½ avocado (ripe)
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
1 banana (extra ripe)
½ cup skimmed milk

Method:
Put all the ingredients in a blender till smooth. Add ice as per requirement.

Benefits:
Individually, both, avocado and cocoa are said to work magic on the skin. Part of this is because avocado is rich in Vitamin B, which plays a critical role in cell generation, thus, helping the growth of new skin tissue.
