Written by: Liz Brown - Mar. 8, 2018
Has winter left your skin feeling dry and dull? If this sounds like you then boy do we have a treat for you! This is the best green detox smoothie for vibrant, youthful skin!
Spring is just around the corner and this time of year is all about renewal and a fresh start. This is the perfect opportunity for you to refocus on your health and there is no better place to start than by giving your skin a little TLC with a spring renewal green detox smoothie!
Winter weather strips your skin of moisture leaving it dry, flakey, tight, patchy, and sometimes itchy. Untreated, your skin may eventually form rough areas that can crack and turn into open wounds increasing your risk for an infection! (No thank you!)
This super simple green detox smoothie is jam packed with vitamins and minerals that improve skin tone and texture leaving your skin looking and feeling rejuvenated, dewy, and youthful.
How You Can Achieve Vibrant, Youthful Skin
Kiwis are such an underrated fruit and really don’t get enough credit in terms of health benefits. Did you know that kiwis provide 273% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C? That is more than five times the amount of an orange!
But not only that, kiwis contain great sources of Vitamin A, K, E, and B6! Vitamin E, helps fight against the formation of free radicals (your skin’s worst enemy), and Vitamin A stimulates the cells that are responsible for developing tissue that keeps skin firm and healthy.
Aside from being full of nutrients, kiwis are low in calories which makes these little power fruits nutrient dense! (Fun Fact: Kiwis are technically a type of berry!)
Bananas, although they are not green, they are incredible for your skin! And they are also delicious so we had to add them to this detox! These popular fruits are rich in potassium and keeps the moisture in your skin.
Bananas also known as “nature’s botox” and contain wrinkle fighting nutrients that fade age spots and prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming. They are also great at controlling oil buildup if you have greasy skin.
All apples have amazing health benefits, but green apples in particular contain higher levels of fiber and lower amounts of sugar than other apples. A higher fiber diet is great for maintaining a healthy digestive system.
They are a great source of potassium, phosphorus, calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron and zinc. Green apples are also rich in folate, niacin, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, K.
We use our SkinnyFit Detox as the base of this smoothie to boost immunity and metabolism, and reduce bloating!
Our Detox contains a blend of 13 superfood ingredients that naturally help release toxins that can have adverse affects on your skin and sugar is a huge culprit!
