Juicing For Your Skin

27 Jul

Juicing is great for your digestive health, but did you know it’s also great for your skin?

The vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables have benefits for your skin when applied topically, but they have even more benefits when ingested! Fruits and vegetables that contain A, B, and C vitamins especially help to increase circulation.

Better circulation = more oxygen to the skin = plumper, younger looking skin

Because beauty starts from within, keeping your digestive tract clean and clear helps reduce the buildup of gunk underneath the surface of your skin. To help keep you looking radiant this summer, here is a comprehensive list of juicing produce and their benefits!
