Be good to your body & start a beauty smoothie ritual.
There is nothing like basking in your own natural beauty. Why not partake in indulgent skincare rituals so your skin can sing it’s most beautiful song. Green ingredients when used inside & out have a way of revealing a softer, more radiant reflection. This beauty smoothie is one of my favorite ways to enhance my glow and overall wellbeing. The combination of spinach, blueberries, Seamoss & Avocado is filling, sweet & refreshing. A delicious way to start the morning.
Eczema has had a lifelong relationship with me and is the cause of many of my skincare rituals & regimens. My specific condition extends across my legs, feet, hands, and fingers. Irritants for me include cold weather, pollen, synthetic fabric, stress, certain soaps, detergents, and dust. It was my lifestyle with atopic dermatitis that inspired me to create intentional self-care experiences like morning smoothies & before bed baths with my favorite sandman crystal salts to keep my body & spirit nourished.
A smoothie is a thick creamy drink made of plants, fruits, ice, milk or yogurt. Beauty supporting ingredients like mango, blueberries, avocado, oranges, papaya & kiwi provides the skin with various nutrients that result in a clearer complexion & radiant glow. My boyfriend put me on to my first green goodness shake in the summer of last year. I was struggling with the idea of slurping down a helping of fruits & veggies, so he recommended I keep it simple with a few ingredients I knew I would like. My research and intution led me to the below full bodied shake. Daily consumption resulted in clearer skin, increased energy throughout the day and weight loss in the waist.
Different fruits and veggies nourish your body in different ways, so I encourage you to do some research on what will help you reach your goals. Below are the ingredients I decided on based on my desired results and personal flavor preferences.
