The Ultimate Beautiful Skin Smoothie
By Amy Crawford
Say hello to The Ultimate Beautiful Skin Smoothie.
Not suprisingly, this recipe includes a handful of power ingredients of huge benefit to our skin - matcha, pineapple, good fats and pure grass-fed gelatin.
Why gelatin? Because collagen. Gelatin is a great source of collagen - needed for skin elasticity and firmness. You'll find more gelatin benefits (and a scrumptious Cream Coconut Panna Cotta recipe) right here.
Let's also not forget about the skin-loving fats in coconut oil and avocado. Avocado is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamins A, D and E. Avocado can help heal dry, flaky and irritated skin associated with psoriasis and eczema and is considered a beneficial ingredient in many face masks.
Matcha is said to be able to combat inflammation and oxidation, thus reducing the visible and internal signs of ageing. Read more about matcha here.
You might be wondering about pineapple? Pineapple is laden with Vit C, bromelain and antioxidants, all of which combined can help reduce skin inflammation, fine lines, acne and uneven skin tone.
