Sweet organic blueberries are popping up in markets everywhere this week at great prices, so what better use than a #beautyfood smoothie bursting with juicy goodness to get you motivated? Blueberries contain one of the highest levels of age and disease-fighting antioxidants found in any fruit, which make them as important to your well-being as they are delicious! Here they are paired with another antioxidant star, sage leaf, plus the complete protein of chia seed to give your body energy and your skin a radiance that can only come from pure, natural ingredients!
As a masque, the chia acts as a gentle exfoliant, while their high alpha-lipolic acid content minimizes fine lines. Blueberries increase elasticity, and when you add fresh lemon to brighten and clarify, and you’ve got a recipe for mega glow!
Om Beauty Tip: Sage leaf is also found in Om Aroma & Co.’s Raspberry Protect Serum for it’s amazing wrinkle-reducing and cell renewing properties.
