Clear Complexion-Stimulating Carrot Smoothie

A clear, smooth skin complexion is, perhaps, one of the best indicators of overall good health. We include four nourishing, skin-friendly ingredients that work together to inspire a youthful glow. Carrots dominate the mix with loads of beta-carotene vitamin A—a must-have ingredient for any complexion-cure regimen. While carrots fortify skin cells, sweet pineapple and ginger both unleash microbe-killing mastery upon skin exposed to harmful environmental elements. Ginger’s signature kick to the palette is an indication of its high potency and ability to influence cell growth. We’ve designed a 2-to-1 concentration ratio between carrots and orange juice, respectively, to better regulate how the total sugars in this smoothie are processed by the body. Ingesting large quantities of orange juice without complementary fiber can trigger the body to store the juice’s sugars as fat.

Depending on the severity of your skin situation, you may want to decrease the proportions of our Complexion-Stimulating Carrot Smoothie. And be warned that its taste is as strong as its formidable health effects. Long-term exposure to sunlight, wind, or cold may require a maximum boost of ingredients, while a milder version of this smoothie may be more appropriate as a quick tonic to help flush your countenance before a special event. This carrot smoothie is like a nurturing liquid facial. Enjoy the glow on the inside and out!
