It's a dull and rainy Friday in Toronto, but I'm getting my glow on with this skin brightening super smoothie!
The bright orange colour of this smoothie signifies its antioxidant strength, in this case I'm talking about beta-carotene which is the natural form of Vitamin A. Vitamin A is amazing for stimulating the growth of the base layer of your skin cells. It literally helps your tissues rejuvenate, heal and grow from the inside out.
This smoothie is also loaded with healthy omega 3 and 6 fats from the flax and hemp hearts, these will help reduce any inflammatory issues you may be experiencing and will help keep you skin soft and supple. These super satisfying superfoods also add fiber to the smoothie that will assist your body in detoxification, ramping up the glow factor even more!
When the world aint givin' ya sunshine, bring the sunshine to the world.
