A lot of you have been inquiring about my skin. Although my skin isn’t perfect [yet], it has tremendously changed over the past 5 months or so. I have very sensitive, acne prone skin and I still have a lot of the acne scars to prove it! My skin has been an uphill battle for as long as I can remember, but before I share with you my routine, I’d like to say that clear skin starts in the kitchen, or the fridge lol. I know that’s not what you may want to hear, but it is the truth. You are what you eat and diet plays an important role in how you skin looks and feels.
When my skin was at it’s worst last year, I decided to go vegan. It was a decision that I made after reading the book “Acne No More”. It is a holistic approach to healing the body from the inside out. If you followed my Instagram at that time, you are aware of this as posted most of my meals. Anyways, this was the turning point for my skin. It was a way to detoxify my body and I no longer broke out daily. This allowed my skin to breath and finally heal from years of acne. Although I am no longer vegan, I still watch what I eat. I haven’t been on top of it lately but I try to eat my green vegetables, fruits and healthy fats.
Before I start going into detail about my current skin routine, I would like to start sharing with you all my favorite juices and smoothies. This one is SO easy and simple but full of flavor. You haven’t had apple juice until you’ve made your own. Seriously!
Ingredients (for 16oz):
-Apples (I used 1 Gala and 2 Green Apples)
-1 cup and a half of Baby Carrots
-A small piece of Ginger (Optional)
Toss all the ingredients in a juicer and enjoy!
On a side note:
I would like to thank every one who participated in my last giveaway! I wish I could give something to every one of you to show my gratitude! As a result, instead of choosing 4 winners, I will choose 6! YAY!
