I think we are all on the search for topical products that give us clear glowing skin with anti-aging benefits. The problem is we usually only think about our face when we say ‘skincare’. The Ayurvedic lifestyle suggests that everything showing up (or in this case NOT showing up) on our skin comes from the inside.
Having this mix in your frig will give you the internal boost your skin needs to see results.
Items you will need:
2 organic cucumbers
1 organic lemon
1 inch of ginger
I tablespoon of local honey
& 1 handful of organic mint
Since I have a juicer I juice the items and then add to my alkaline water. If you do not have a juicer or alkaline water.. no worries just make an infused water and it will get to the skin just the same.
Kangen water 9.5 (alkaline water)
So here goes my need out on nutrition for the skin AKA #skintrition
Cucumber have vitamins C, K & B. These are great for keeping the skin clear and smooth. Cucumbers are made of 95% water which helps rid the skin of toxins. It prevents water retention (puffiness in skin).
Lemon is high in vitamin C which is not only a great antioxidant BUT speeds up detoxification. It is very alkaline so it balances the PH in your skin. Over time it will brighten and lighten your skin. It’s very antibacterial and helps keep the skin clean which treats breakouts and helps prevent blackheads.
Ginger contains 40 different anti-inflammatory properties. It helps prevent aging and free radical damage. It improves the tone and elasticity of the skin.
Honey is naturally antibacterial which makes it great for controlling breakouts. It is full of antioxidants to slow down aging. It is very moisturizing which helps give the skin a glow.
Mint helps the skin absorb all the nutrients. It is anti-inflammatory and is know to calm skin conditions.
A few other tips to make your water work the best for you. Keep your water in the frig but when ready to drink it let it warm up to room temperate before drinking. If it is too cold it can slow down metabolism. Drink 1-2 cups a day, no more. It can be very detoxifying and might keep you in the bathroom if you drink more than suggested.
ENJOY & please let me know how you like it. The more feedback I get, the more I will share!
