Better-looking skin starts from within! And by within, we mean with your diet. Dermatologists and health professionals alike have boasted about the importance of eating and drinking the right foods to keep your skin looking its best.
We all know plenty of water is the #1 best thing you can drink for clearer, more hydrated, supple skin, but there’s a new health drink that’s taking over the internet and for very good reasons.
Celery juice is known for being a great healing tonic with the ability to help with a variety of health issues, from lowering blood pressure, improved gut health, and decreased inflammation. According to Dr. Karin Hermoni, PhD, Head of Science & Nutrition at Lycored, the key to the green juice’s long list of benefits is the variety of vitamins and minerals it contains. Celery juice is especially high in vitamin A, a form of carotenoids, which is important for skin health.
Carotenoids act as antioxidants for your skin and help protect your complexion from UV damage while improving tone, brightness, and firmness.
You can make your own celery juice in a blender or a juicer and add in other skin-nourishing ingredients like spinach, berries, and lemon, to up the vitamin and minerals. See the tutorial by Clean Eating Kitchen for more information on making your own celery juice.
