This juice doesn’t only taste refreshing, it’s incredible for the skin. Carrots are high in vitamin-A (helps clear up acne and stops dryness) and beta-carrotene (a powerful antioxidant that can repair skin damage). Cucumbers cleanse digestion (fun fact: did you know how you digest food directly impacts your skin?) and has a cooling effect on your skin. Ginger reduces inflammation and boosts the immune system. And lemon juice is just all sorts of wonderful for you: it helps fight blackheads and aging, it’s a relaxing agent if you’re stressed (something I could definitely use at times ha) and it also helps with digestion (remember when I said digestion is directly correlated with skin?)
To make this juice, in your juicer use:
– 1 lemon, peeled
– 1 small piece of fresh ginger, about an inch long (use half of that if you don’t like ginger…. ginger goes a long way!)
– 8″ cucumber, peeled
– 4 large carrots (organic are so cheap! you can buy a 10-pound bag at costco for $4.99)
Tip: Unless your fruits and vegetables are organic, always peel otherwise you’re juicing those icky (and harmful) pesticides that were sprayed all over them. Don’t think water will magically wash them away.
