Lockdown Diet: 5 Nourishing Juices You Can Drink For Glowing And Younger Skin
It is a good time to give your skin the much needed care and attention.
The nationwide lockdown has limited our movement outside; a great number of people are working from home to avoid the chance of contracting infection. While a lot of us are missing the old routine, we can always take solace from the fact that by staying indoors and practicing social distancing, we can beat Corona Virus faster, and we would soon be out and about. It is also a good time to re-valuate a few things. Remember how your diet, health and skin took a backseat amid the hustle-bustle of daily travel and work. Well it is a good time to avoid not only the traffic but also the pollution and give your skin the much needed care and attention. Including fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet may do wonders for your skin. Seasonal fruits are packed with antioxidants that could help give you a radiant and young skin.
Here Are 5 Nourishing Juices You Can Drink For Glowing And Younger Skin:
1. Lemon Juice
Zest and fresh, lemon juice with a hint of honey is an anti-oxidant boost your skin deserves. Lemon is an excellent source of vitamin C that fight free-radicals, which are responsible for wrinkles and dull skin. Honey is a natural exfoliator. Take a glass squeeze a whole lemon, add water and herbs like mint or basil, a teaspoon of honey for taste and sip in.
2. Tomato Juice
Tomato is replete with antioxidants like lycopene, vitamin C and E, all of which help you gain the lost sheen and nourish yours skin from within. Take a blender, add some fresh (deseeded) tomatoes, carrots, a pinch of black pepper and blend.
