It is strange to us that we when we have an issue with our skin that our first look for a fix are the aisles of Sephora. We put our undivided trust in a jar and assume that the tiny words on the packaging promising clarity, plumpness, and youth are in fact true. We are not here to debate the effects of various lotions and potions, we use them ourselves everyday. Instead, we are suggesting an inside out approach to beauty that starts with consuming skin loving foods.

To keep it simple and easy (so it actually happens), we blend our beauty foods into morning smoothies (AKA Beauty Blends™) that help set our complexions up for the whole day. Generally we throw a few greens, herbs, lemon, water into a blender and whirl it up. This time of year as the chill of winter sets in and our skin thrusts for hydration, we turn to this ultra moisturizing Beauty Blend™ of coconut, lime, vanilla, and frozen cherries to warm our skin from within. The coconut milk in this blend is full of skin loving fat that adds to your skin’s moisture defenses and supports balanced hormones, blood sugar stability, and absorption of essential vitamins like the heaping dose of vitamin C from the cherries!

We start the day with this blend one or two times a week in winter months and notice a serious difference in our skin’s natural oil production. We always skip it the week before our cycle to avoid unwanted blemishes and bumps.

Blend this:

  • 2 Cups Cherries
  • Juice of 2 Limes
  • 1 Can coconut milk
  • 1 Cup of water
  • 1 dash of vanilla 

Makes 2 (sometimes 3) servings.

Drink one today, freeze one for tomorrow.
