7 Healthy Juices for Youthful and Glowing Skin

Everyone seems to be getting back to fitness and choosing healthier foods to eat.  Today, a lot of people are taking juicing to another level because of the benefits they can get from it. The nutrients you can get from different fruits and vegetables are better than the supplements from health shops. And with a good blender, you'll be able to extract all of those nutrients plus the benefits of fiber.

One of the obvious effects of incorporating juicing in your daily life is the all-natural, youthful glow of our skin. Fruits and vegetables are natural detoxifiers flushing out toxins, which causes acne, oiliness, rashes and other skin-related problems. This significantly decreases your trips to the dermatologist for facial care, skin needling, and diamond peels and other services.

Juicing different fruits, vegetables or a combination of both can be confusing but in a good way. The myriad of health benefits are delightful but if you want something that gives you a healthy glow and youthful look, you should consider using carrots, beets, ginger, apples and cucumbers as some of the main ingredients in your juicing.

Carrot juice

Carrots are known to have high amounts of beta-carotene, which is a potent antioxidant. It helps in maintaining your youthful look and slows down aging. Abundant amount of Vitamin C is also found in carrots that produce collagen. Collagen makes your skin elastic, slows aging and prevents wrinkles.

Beet juice

Beet juice is your liver’s best friend. A beetroot juice contains high amounts of copper, vitamin C, iron, potassium, manganese, magnesium and other essential minerals that help flush out toxins in your body. If toxins are released, it purifies your blood stream leaving your skin healthy and glowing.

Apple juice

Apple is one of the healthiest and most versatile fruits there is. It is packed with a lot of antioxidants and minerals that’s why they say “an apple a day keeps the doctors away”.  When it comes to skin care, it is best to drink apple juice for skin-related problems like inflammation, cracked skin, wrinkles and skin itching.

Cucumber juice

Not all juices need to be taken in order to experience its benefits. You can even use the juice and apply it directly on the skin! Dab the cucumber juice into your skin making it an excellent toner.  If you also experience sun burns, cucumber juice can be applied on the affected area and you can add aloe vera gel to soothe your skin after a long day of skin exposure under the sun.

Ginger juice

Ginger has powerful antioxidant and antibacterial properties that helps fight off bacteria in the body. You can use ginger alongside with other fruits and vegetables to make a delicious and healthy juice or directly apply a fresh ginger slice into the area of your skin where hypopigmented scars are seen.

Strawberry and Cranberry juices

Berries are known powerful antioxidants that help fight of free radicals causing cancer. But apart from its antioxidant properties, it is also packed with vitamin C, which, helps produce hydroxylysine and hydroxyproline which are important in collagen production. It is also the perfect choice of drink during winter to keep your skin supple and smooth despite the harsh condition.

Kale juice

Kale is packed with a lot of nutrients from Vitamins A, B1, B2, C, E, K, calcium, copper, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, beta-carotene and a lot more. All these can help make you look younger, gives healthier skin, reduces wrinkles, improves hair elasticity and hair growth and just cleanses you body on the inside making you look and feel good on the outside.

The best part about these juices is that it can be found in your pantry. And incorporating these in your everyday life can spell a lot of difference in your skin. Not only will you look good, but you will also feel good inside out.
