You guys know from my other smoothies that my favourite ingredients to use are ones that make your skin glow. Here are a few reasons to love the Blueberry Basil Meal-in-a-jar. Let me know if you try it out!
The vitamins in BLUEBERRIES can neutralize and normalize oil levels in your skin, making it more radiant and less likely to produce sebum (a natural oil created to combat dryness that causes acne).
KIWI is great for both firming and softening your skin. They contain large amount of vitamin C, which helps your body produce collagen, a connective tissue protein that helps to firm your skin. The high levels of vitamin C also repairs the skin by healing cuts and abrasions and preventing rough/dry patches.
BASIL has anti-anxiety effects on the body and combats against stress. We all know how stress negatively impacts the quality of our skin. Basil is also a great detoxifier for the liver!
The folate found in SPINACH helps maintain and repair DNA and the extra water in the leafy greens helps to plump the skin and prevent wrinkles.
The monounsaturated fats in AVOCADO help maintain good moisture levels in the skin that give it that soft and healthy look. Omega-9 fats found in avocados help to reduce skin redness and irritation.
