Purifying Beauty Elixir
Smoothie Recipe Key Beauty Ingredient: Organic Lemon and Parsley
Benefits of Lemon and Parsley: Lightening the toxic load is on everyone’s mind at the moment. I created a refreshing and delicious way to cleanse the body and still enjoy what you’re sipping on! Utilizing the power of tea like Yogi’s Skin Detox, filled with cleansing herbs of Oregon grape and dandelion roots combined with detoxifying super foods, this smoothie with a blended juice consistency supports an overworked liver. A happy liver can process nasty toxins more efficiently which leads to clear and younger-looking skin. Parsley packs a mighty nutrition punch loaded with vitamins A, C, K along with folate and iron which all benefit healthy skin. Lemons provide vitamin C that boosts the immune system and helps skin with collagen formation. Lastly alfalfa is considered ‘deep root nutrition’ as it absorbs minerals and nutrients from deep in the soil and contains large amounts of chlorophyll that bind to toxins and help remove them from the body. Here’s to purifying towards feeling pretty for the New Year!
