Juice for Glowing Skin

August 28, 2017

Ingredients

1 whole fennel bulb
Found in most produce sections, fennel is a lightly sweet nutritional powerhouse. Not only is it loaded with vitamin C, which prevents cell damage, but it has tons of antioxidants and a phytonutrient called anethole, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory nutrient. Fennel is also an antiseptic and a diuretic.

1 large beet
Beets are high in iron, which fights dark circles under the eyes, and vitamin A, something skin needs to stay healthy.

2 Granny Smith green apples
Apples are full of antioxidants and free radical–fighting vitamin C. Also, apples give you tons of fiber, which, helps you, um, eliminate toxins from the body.

1 pear
Pears are yummy and anti-inflammatory, meaning they calm redness. Pear enzymes speed up cell turnover, meaning: you’ll get newer skin cells faster.

1 big handful of fresh dandelion greens
If you can get them, dandelion greens hold lots of vitamin A and support kidney function, helping to eliminate waste. Warning: If you don’t live somewhere where you can get dandelion greens substitute kale, spinach.

Instructions

Wash everything, then toss in your juicer or blender, and hit the “on” button. If you’re blending, add a cup of water to help liquefy your fruit.

The concoction will start out as a light green–and–fuchsia affair, but thanks to the beet, it’ll become a deep magenta when stirred. This recipe will make around 35 ounces of fresh juice, which you’ll need to keep in the fridge in an airtight container (stir before before drinking). Drink it up within two days, and then repeat, repeat, repeat for glowing, smooth skin!
