Glowing skin with juicing for a Healthy skin ideas !
“You are what you eat”.
The health of our bodies is reflected in our physical and mental condition. Did you know that it’s also true that what we put into our body affects our skin? If we burden our digestive systems with a poor diet that consists mainly of processed junk foods, we will notice that our skin will suffer along with how we feel.
When we consume too many foods laden with unhealthy sugars, fats and chemical additives, we may affect the overall function of the liver. The consequences of this are poor health and a dull or inflamed complexion. Toxins are released through the skin in the form of acne blemishes and other problems which affect the skin like eczema.
Juicingis a great way to add nutrient-rich foods to our regular diet and a great option for anyone who wants to cleanse toxins from their digestive systems. Fruits and vegetables are great for cleansing the system, they provide nutrients in the form of vitamins and minerals that our bodies need. These nutrients also nourish the health of our skin.
Juicing also helps to keep your skin hydrated and detoxified. Green juices made from Kale, Lettuce, Spinach, Spirulina, and Wheatgrass have chlorophyll in them. Chlorophyll is similar to human hemoglobin, so drinking these “green juices” can help our brain’s function, strengthen our immune system, and improve the quality of our skin.
