Clear/Glowing Skin Juice

Often times the state of our skin is the reflection of our inner health. It is therefore extremely important to treat the skin ailments from it roots rather than relying only on topical applications. An Inside Out Approach is a way to achieve a clear healthy looking skin.

Our body detoxify primarily through liver and skin. When we stuff our bodies with the lot of junk/processed food our body pushes out toxins through our skin. This detoxification through skin leads to various skin disorders like acne/pimples and we end up having a dull looking skin.
Including wholesome/fresh/raw fruits and vegetables will indeed help in achieving natural youthful glow on the skin.


GRAPES + CUCUMBER + AMLA(GOOSEBERRY) + BASIL




This Juice combination will help in clearing up your skin in no time. 
Before heading to the recipe let's talk about the benefits of each first:


GRAPES benefits for skin health:

  • Antioxidant-rich safeguards skin from free radical damage.
  • Prevents Acne/Pimple.
  • Prevents signs of aging/wrinkles.
  • Contain enzyme which has an anti-inflammatory effect.
  • Provides clear youthful skin. 

CUCUMBER benefits for skin health:

  • Rich in silica which is good for skin.
  • Has anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Keeps the skin hydrated.

AMLA (GOOSEBERRY) BENEFITS FOR SKIN HEALTH:


  • Boost production of collagen which helps to keep the skin smooth/young
  • Extremely rich in antioxidant (Vit C), fight against free radicals.
  • Prevents signs of aging 
  • Reduce pigmentation/scars from inside out.

BASIL benefits for skin health: 

  • Purifies blood, helps prevent acne/pimples.
  • Antibacterial and antioxidant properties.

GRAPES + CUCUMBER + AMLA(GOOSEBERRY) + BASIL JUICE/SMOOTHIE

You will need:

Serving: 2
  • 1/ cup grapes 
  • 1 cucumber 
  • 6 to 8 fresh basil leaves 
  • 1 amla 
  • 1 cup water 

Method: 

I don't have a juicer so I blend all the ingredients and then strained it using a muslin cloth or you can use strainer too. If you don't want to loose the fiber then skip straining it. Have it like a smoothie. If you have the juicer you have your life sorted just squeeze out the good stuff and drink it up. Just a tip don't throw away all the fiber add a spoon or two back to your juice. I just don't like throwing away the good fiber. 

ENJOY!


NOTE:

  • Juicing leads to detoxification and therefore you may experience acne breakouts in the initial 1 to 2 weeks. Do not worry it will subside down once your body get used to of the good stuff getting in.
