Smoothies for clear skin
If you’re like me, you have probably tried to get clear skin by using many facial products, and honestly, they don’t really work. The only products that worked for me was the Sebamed Care Gel and the cleansing bar but you can probably get a cheaper cleansing bar elsewhere. Anyhow, gels can work, but the reason you don’t have a clear face is because of your diet and stress-related factors.
While stress is relatively normal in life, if you feel like it is taking a toll on your overall health, you should work on decreasing said stress because it will be reflected on the face.
“I thought you were going to talk about juicing recipes!?”
Al right, sorry, I apologize. Before you get started, you should also read whether you should juice or blend and find one that best suits you. If you are serious about health you will likely end up with both.
Make sure to get one juicer or blender the high-end companies like Vitamix or Ninja because the lower tier ones just don’t do the job well, leaving you with chunks in your drink and an overall disappointing experience in how well its mixed. Did I also mention they’re also faster, more powerful, and more durable?
Foods that keep the face hydrated:
What you will want to do is make shakes or smoothies or juices that have a lot of greens or bananas in them, as they are extremely rich in potassium which aid in skin cells being able to retain moisture which makes them hydrated.
Foods that nourish and repair:
When it comes to nourishing your skin and giving it the nutrients it needs to repair itself and protect from breakouts, your body needs beta-carotene.
Word of warning, some people have reported that mango gives them rashes. This is what happened to me and then I found out that I’m allergic to the mango peel because it shares the same properties in its sap as poison ivy. I just wear gloves when peeling them and I still get to enjoy their amazing taste.
In the beginning, you may notice your skin becoming worse because the alkalizing nutrients force your body to release toxins so they are likely to show up on your face, but keep on going and they will likely subside.
Maybe you have heard of him, Joe Rogan, a comedian and mixed martial arts commentator, is known for his infatuation with nutrients and healthy living and he even has a shake named after him: the Joe Rogan kale shake recipe.

When you taste it for the first time, you may or may not like it, try adding a hint of cinnamon and see if this makes it a bit more pleasant for you. You can also add some avocados.
