5 Smoothies for Great Looking Skin and Hair

We all desire beautiful, clear, youthful skin and hair, but many of us don’t focus on the right things! Great skin doesn’t just require effective skincare products. A great diet and a healthy lifestyle are also key.

Although sleep, exercise, and stress relief are important factors to work on over the longer term, nutrient-rich smoothies are one way you can get a quick skin boost. Having a smoothie five to seven times per week packs in plenty of vitamins, minerals, and good fats that support beautiful skin. Since fruits and veggies contain different nutrients, mixing them up can be helpful. Smoothies come in handy, especially for those who struggle to eat fruits.

We’ve rounded up five of the best smoothie recipes, packed with the key nutrients for beautiful skin. A complexion that is clear, bright, and youthful complexion is just a beverage away!
