The hubs and I have been doing a lot of traveling lately. It’s been such a treat to take time out for ourselves and to visit family, but dry airplane environments and lots of time spent out in the sun have taken a toll on my skin.
I make this juice/smoothie when I need to whip my skin back into shape. All the healthy ingredients and the high water content of vegetables like cucumber really give my skin the boost it needs. I drink two servings a day for three days in a row and notice a healthy glow on my face every single time.
For this recipe, I make sure that my spinach and apple are organic and buy the other ingredients organic as available and affordable. The apple adds a little sweetness, but if you’re a green juice veteran, you can probably leave it out. Make this in a blender so you don’t miss out on the fiber.
Dewy Skin Elixir
½ cucumber, peeled and roughly chopped
3 stalks celery, trimmed and roughly chopped
1 lime, peel and pith removed
2 - 3 handfuls of spinach
½ apple, roughly chopped (optional)
1 - 2 cups of water
Add the first five ingredients (through apple, if using) to a high-powered blender. Pour in one cup of water and process until smooth, adding more water as needed to reach desired consistency.
