MAKE THIS SKIN-LOVING SMOOTHIE, USE THE LEFTOVERS FOR A DIY MASQUE.
Deadlines, holiday planning, and stressful days can wreak havoc on your skin. This bright #beautyfood smoothie and masque will help calm and soothe your skin with potent anti-inflammatory ingredients while delivering powerful anti-aging benefits so your skin (and your spirits) stay merry and bright this season.
Citrus fruits are natural healers. They contain certain antioxidants that lower levels of inflammatory chemicals in the body. They also have high levels of vitamin C, which boosts your immune system while promoting collagen formation.
Rosemary also contains anti-inflammatory properties, increases blood flow to the head, aids digestion, and provides valuable beauty vitamins and antioxidants.
