Our Tangy Citrus Beauty Smoothie will light up your taste buds AND your skin as it beautifies you from the inside out.
Plentiful in antioxidant-rich, anti-inflammatory and adaptogenic superfoods, this smoothie is a potent beauty tonic. It’s common practice to reach for topical skin care products as a cure-all for dull, dry, lifeless skin and hair. While topical skincare has its merits, of course, (hey, we’re no strangers to bottles of fragrant seabuckthorn oils and jasmine-infused beauty balms!) the real secret to glowing, vibrant skin and lustrous locks is to hone in on what you’re putting INSIDE your body.
A couple of key ingredients are behind this smoothie’s superpowers:
Pine Pollen Powder: Shown to contain over 200 bioactive vitamins, minerals, and other super nutrients, Pine Pollen Powder is a concentrated tonic and nutritive. It improves skin, lessens the signs of aging and restores energy. Pine Pollen Powder has been used for ages for its adaptogenic and tonic properties to promote glowing health and beauty from the inside out.
Ginger & Turmeric: This anti-inflammatory wonder duo will help balance your internal response to environmental toxins. They'll work to soothe acne flare-ups, heal eczema and calm inflammation throughout the body.
Orange Fruit Smoothie Base: Pineapple, Mango & Orange are all rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients; orange fruits, in particular, pack their own unique nutritional punch. Pineapple also contains Bromelain, which is a powerful digestive enzyme that calms inflammation and offers a suite of health benefits, including aiding in weight loss and soothing the skin.
