Summertime brings your skin out of hiding, and healthy foods can help it glow from the inside out. In addition to drinking plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated, seek out foods that are high in antioxidants and phytochemicals to protect your skin from free radicals.
With the Vitamix blender, you can prepare many recipes that feature “superfoods” and “superfruits” that are high in good-for-your-skin nutrients. Walnuts, featured in our Basil Walnut Pesto, are high in fatty acids. Green smoothies like the Glowing Green Smoothie feature nutrient-dense greens. You can even blend up an all-natural facial mask.
