2 kiwi, peeled and cubed
1 stalk celery
1 handful spinach
1 tsp honey

Blend all these ingredients together for a smoothie that will help flush out toxins, fight free radicals and reduce inflammation. The vitamin C in the lime juice is good for your skin, and the antioxidants in the kiwi are as added bonus. Serves 1.

Banana Smoothie With Ginger

¾ c (6 oz) vanilla yogurt
1 Tbsp honey
½ tsp freshly grated ginger

1 stalk celery
½ c parsley

All you need to do is put all ingredients through a juicer, and then refrigerate. Serve cold. What is so great about this drink is that it is a rich source of Vitamin A and C, both of which are essential for healthy skin. Additionally, parsley, a diuretic, prevents bloating, and spinach is believed to have anti-cancer properties. Serves 1.

 Radiant Complexion Mix

2 cups baby carrots

1 small apple
2 1/2 small beets, boiled, roasted, or canned
1 strip of ginger

For this concoction, you need to chop up all the ingredients into small pieces so that they fit into your juicer. If you want some extra fiber, then leave some of the discarded pulp in, and you’ll get a thicker version. The name of this drink is termed so, because it is packed with nutrients that help you attain a glowing complexion. For example, beets are a rich source of antioxidants, while carrots have beta-carotene. Lemon juice contains Vitamin C that helps prevent wrinkles, so this is great for individuals are looking to stay young. Finally, ginger has anti-inflammatory properties that will help reduce the puffiness from your face.  Serves 1.

This juice is great for a flat flush. It will help you feel satisfied for longer, prevent you from binge eating and snacking at odd times. Juice the above mentioned ingredients.  Garnish with some chopped organic parsley for a drink that is also pleasing to the eyes. Serves 1.

Lastly, if you want great looking skin, then the key is to moisturize it daily. Brilliant Daily Moisturizing Gel is a product that works miraculously well, since it contains extracts from natural silver, ginseng, and pearl powder from freshwater pearls.
