When it comes to skincare everyone always talks about the latest and most revolutionary products that help revitalize skin. However, what you put onto your skin is just as important as the food and beverage you consume. Here are 3 powerful drinks to consider incorporating into your daily routine to improve skin’s appearance:
Cucumber and Lemon Water
Everyone knows that water is essential to plump and hydrate skin, but you can turn it up a notch by adding slices of cucumber and lemon. Both ingredients add a refreshing taste to ordinary water and act as anti-inflammatory agents that help prevent bloating while improving skin’s condition. Additionally, both are efficient metabolism boosters.
Green tea is another drink that helps fight inflammation and redness by reducing the production of sebum. It also contains catechins and polyphenols, which are anti-oxidants that protect your skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays. If you find green tea too bland, you can try adding a slice of lemon or a teaspoon of honey for a more refreshing or sweeter taste.
Pomegranate is known as a super fruit because of its overwhelming amount of health benefits. It also helps prolong the life of fibroblasts, which are used to produce collagen. As a result of increased collagen production, you are more likely to see a reduction in the amount of fine lines and wrinkles on your skin. Keep in mind that pomegranate juice is a rather tart drink, therefore it might help to slowly build up a tolerance to the drink.
