Bodies are constantly contaminated with different toxins from the environment, diet, and even medicine. Toxins are naturally flushed out by bodies through organic processes such as sweat and bowel movements.


However, most of the time these processes aren’t enough to achieve true cleansing benefits. Our bodies become accustomed to these daily toxins and the harm that builds up daily over time is often unnoticed.


Detoxing and cleansing programs are used to flush the body from these toxins that keep us from being our healthiest. Thus, detox power in juicing and smoothie recipes are used to boost the body’s ability to get rid of everyday poisons.


Metabolism boosting cleanses are also effective for achieving more radiant and glowing skin, hair and eyes. Drinking green smoothies can make you look better too! Yes, you heard us right! By drinking green smoothies over a period of time, you will notice that your skin is glowing; your wrinkles are visibly lesser making you look younger too!


Smoothies provide added nutritional value to our meals and fuel for our bodies. They can also be used as a meal replacement for someone hoping to shed fat. Smoothies really are a great option for weight-loss because many recipes use high fiber vegetables and fruits that help fill you up without adding fat and calories. The beauty of including smoothies in your weight loss plan is that you can expect to never feel deprived because the creamy texture and high fiber will leave you feeling full for periods.


Finally, if you are a weight loss enthusiast, green smoothies on daily basis can become your magic potion. They wash away the toxins from your body, and ultimately help you shed those extra pounds.


Here are my favourite glowing skin smoothie recipes


Glowing Skin Smoothie Recipe #1


Needed ingredients are 1 cup non-fat or low-fat vanilla soy milk, 1 cup frozen raspberries, 1 medium ripe banana and ½ cup orange juice with one ice cube or 1 tablespoon frozen orange juice concentrate
To prepare this smoothie, combine all ingredients in blender. Cover and blend until smooth. This drink is great for your skin because it contains nutrients such as Vitamin C, antioxidants and flavonoids.


Citrus fruits such as orange contain high levels of ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, which is essential to a good complexion because it is responsible for your body’s collagen formation. Healthy collagen keeps your face free from wrinkles and sagging. Vitamin C which is also an antioxidant may help to prevent destruction of vitamin E, which protects your cell membranes
Raspberries are a good source of collagen-forming vitamin C, and raspberries have a small amount of vitamin A. Vitamins A and C act as antioxidants that protect your skin cells from the damage of free radicals, which contribute to the aging of your skin.


Glowing Skin Smoothie Recipe #2


The needed ingredients for this recipe are 1 medium ripe peach, sliced,
2 tablespoons chopped avocado, 1/3 cup unsweetened frozen strawberries, 3/4 cup fat-free plain yogurt, 3 tablespoons 100% pomegranate juice, 1 teaspoon grapeseed oil and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
To prepare this smoothie, place all the ingredients in a blender. Puree about 15 seconds or until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and serve with a tall straw.


I like the avocado in this recipe because it is loaded with vitamins C, E and K, which are essential for healthy skin. It may also help reduce dryness and irritation. In addition to all of those beautifying benefits, avocados also contain glutathione, a substance that specifically blocks intestinal absorption of certain fats that cause oxidative stress—the damage to our skin due to environment, diet, alcohol, UV rays or smoking.


Glowing Skin Smoothie Recipe #3


The needed ingredients for this recipe are 1/4 cup frozen or fresh blueberries, 1/4 cup frozen or fresh raspberries, 1/4 cup frozen or fresh strawberries, 1/4 cup kale and 1 cup of water
To prepare this smoothie, place all the ingredients in a high power blender. Whirl until completely smooth. Serve immediately and sip your way to berry-induced bliss.


Berries bring on big beautifying benefits for your skin. Berries are full of antioxidant compounds that neutralize damaging free radicals that lead to skin cell damage and premature skin aging. Plus, they’re loaded with hydrating water and are chock-full of vitamin C, which is crucial for a healthy complexion. As if that’s not enough, these colorful superfoods help the body manufacture collagen, which makes skin soft, smooth and youthful.


Glowing Skin Smoothie Recipe #4


The needed ingredients are 1 sliced papaya with seeds removed, 1 sliced large peach with seeds removed, ½ cup of milk, and juice of 1 lime. To prepare this smoothie, put all of the ingredients into a blender and process until smooth.


Papaya is a natural exfoliating tonic. It leaves your skin spotless with its high vitamin A content. With moisture rich peaches, you can say goodbye to dry skin. You can happily bypass moisturizing creams if you include peaches in your diet.


Glowing Skin Smoothie Recipe #5


The needed ingredients are 6 fresh strawberries, juice of 1 lemon, ½ teaspoon lemon zest, ½ cup of cream or non-fat milk, 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream.


To prepare this smoothie, blend together the ice cream, lemon juice and the berries. Adjust the consistency by adding cream or milk. Stir in lemon zest.


Lemons are rich in vitamin C, which is great for the skin. Berries are as packed in antioxidants as fruits. Strawberries are great for overall health. The antioxidants in strawberries can work wonders for rejuvenating your skin.

Bathing in milk is a fantastic way to get soft, supple skin all over your body. Milk removes dead skin cells and softens skin. It also nourishes and smoothens, so it is especially good for dry skin or skin that seems to have lost its vitality. When you bath yourself with milk, you should choose those with higher fat content because this will be more nourishing for your skin.


Here are 6 homemade milk bath recipes you can use to give yourself a queen treatment at the comfort and privacy of your home.


Homemade Milk Bath Recipe #1


Needed ingredients are 2 cups of full-fat milk (or ½ cup of powdered milk) and 2 tablespoons of raw organic honey. If you want to, you can substitute milk with butter milk. Both are equally okay. The lactic acid in milk, which is a kind of Alpha-Hydroxyl acid (AHA) helps to dissolve the bond that holds the dead skin cells together, which makes it a good exfoliating agent. As for butter milk, besides having AHA, it has more fat than regular milk which sure leave your skin silky smooth. If you use butter milk, 2 cups will be just enough.


You mix the honey and milk together to form a bathing lotion and then you simply pour it into a running bath. Honey has an abundance of health properties. First of all, it is composed of sugars like glucose and fructose so it is also a gentle alpha hydroxyl acid. It’s made up of both minerals and vitamins to help nourish and heal the skin.


If you like to experiment even more, you can add in more ingredients. In this case, you will need 2 cups of milk, 1 cup of raw honey, ¼ cup of baking soda, 1 cup of either sea salt or Epsom salt, 1-2 teaspoons of jojoba oil and 5 drops of lavender essential oil. You combine honey, milk, salt and baking soda in a bowl. Add to running water. Finally add in the jojoba oil and lavender essential oil.


Epsom salts are a natural healing agent, detoxifer, skin emollient and exfoliate. The magnesium in Epsom salt relaxes and soothes aching muscles, reduces swelling and helps heal bruises. Baking soda neutralizes damaging acids on the skin and smoothes it. Jojoba oil closely resembles human sebum (oil that is produced by human body), our skin accepts it very well without the threat of any allergic reactions. Jojoba oil can reduce wrinkles, stretch marks and scars.


Homemade Milk Bath Recipe #2


Needed ingredients are 2 cups of dry whole powdered milk, ½ cup Epsom salts, ½ cup baking soda, 6 drops of sandalwood essential oil, 5 drops of vanilla absolute oil, 4 drops of gardenia absolute oil and 4 drops of orange oil.


You mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. When you want to use it, you can pour a cup of this mixture into the bath tub as you fill it with water and stir well.


Homemade Milk Bath Recipe #3


You will need 2 cups of coconut milk, 3 drops each of tangerine and ylang ylang essential oils (or 6 drops of lavender essential oil) and some freshly rose petals.


You add the oils into the milk in a bowl, and then you add this mixture to the bath water. Finally you spread the rose petals into the bath water, hop in and indulge your senses.


Homemade Milk Bath Recipe #4


The ingredients you need here are 1 cup powdered milk, 1/8 cup cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon corn starch and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. You mix all the ingredients in a bowl. When you already to use, you pour the mixture into a bath tub of warm water. Stir to dissolve.


Homemade Milk Bath Recipe #5


The ingredients for this recipe are 11/2 cup of raw honey (or manuka honey), ½ cup of powdered milk, ½ cup of extra virgin olive oil and 1 teaspoon of lavender essential oil. Mix the milk and honey together in a bowl before you add in the oils. When you want to use, you can empty the contents from the bowl into the bathtub of warm water.


Homemade Milk Bath Recipe #6


You will need 2 cups of milk powder, ¼ cup of rice flour (or 1 cup of oat flour), ½ cup of honey, ½ cup aloe vera gel, ¼ cup baking soda and 2 teaspoons of lavender essential oil. You first mix the non-oil ingredients together in a bowl before you add in the oil. When you are already to use, you pour the mixture into a bath tub of warm water and stir.


Bathing in aloe vera is useful when you suffer from sun burns. Aloe vera softens and soothes your skin, removes any fungal bacterial infections and heals any minor wounds. Though aloe vera is a miracle herb, it is always better to get tested for any aloe allergy before using this bath recipe.

Which is Better – Chemical Bleaching Creams or Natural Skin Whitening Recipes?



Are you the type who has a lot of freckles, dark spots and age spots that you would really like to minimize or remove? If you are, then you may want to find a product that will help erase those unwanted spots and flaws in your skin. But the question is how to identify whether if a certain product is really effective and safe to use? The best and the cheaper way to even skin tone is to learn how to make your own natural skin whitening recipes.
Want to know which is the most effective and safest way to whiten your skin? Click HERE!


There has been a time when most of us assume that products made up in laboratories were considered to be the best products on the market. This was because many people believed that those products were manufactured to the highest standard.


However, this has been proven wrong because many of these products contain chemical substances that did more harm than actually helping people. Due to this reason, many people are turning to natural skin caring and using natural ingredients in the hope of finding an alternative to chemical products.


Skin whitening is one of those areas which see increased scrutiny on these two alternatives: chemical bleaching creams and natural skin whitening recipes. But which of these solutions works best for your skin?


Let’s do a simple comparison of these two types of skin whitening treatments! Once you have enough knowledge about each of them you will be able to answer the above question all by yourselves.


When it comes to choosing a skin whitening product, the first thing that comes to every person’s mind is whether it is effective. Everyone wants to choose that alternative that really works best to get rid of black spots and darkened skin forever.


Both types of treatments should probably be equally good or effective as this is what they have been created for. However, there are certain cases in which a good mix of natural ingredients has the same active substance as the chemical cream.


Another thing to consider when choosing a skin whitening product is whether it is safe. Unfortunately some products are not safe for the skin. They contain chemicals that can cause side effects on different people. This is especially so for pregnant women and people with sensitive skin.


As most of these ingredients are formulated in the laboratory, they can be harmful to human skin. The risk of allergies is even bigger as there are few people who have been testing these substances before.


On the other hand, when you are using your own natural skin whitening recipes, the risk of side effects is reduced to minimum, as most ingredients can be found in the kitchen or can be eaten. The most important thing is because you are preparing these ingredients for yourself, the risk of allergies is completely removed, and only you yourself will know what you are allergic to.


Of course another important consideration when choosing a skin whitening product is the price. The price of a chemical bleaching product can vary depending on the substances used, the producer or the brand selling it.  In the case of natural skin whitening recipes, they usually do not cost much, as all the ingredients are currently used in the kitchen.


What is best is these natural products are freshly prepared by your own effort and can be used straight away after preparation for a more intense ingredients’ action. They are easy to make and apply and can be used for a longer period of time.


You can learn how to make your own natural skin whitening recipes by clicking on Chemical Free Skin Lightening Ideas. You will see how the skin will get whiter and the brown spots will disappear in just a matter of weeks, without too much effort or any side effects. Beauty can always be cheaper and easily accessible for those who want to get rid of hyperpigmentation!
