An easy (and delicious!) way to drink your way to clear skin is with my Berry Beauty Lemonade, which you can easily make at home.
This beautifying lemonade is chock full of skin-supporting ingredients and features one of my all-time favorite superherbs for skin, schizandra. This superhero-sounding plant has the power to cleanse your liver and purify your blood, two critical actions that keep your skin glowing and radiant. It also moisturizes your skin from the inside out by keeping your cells hydrated. Plump, juicy cells on the inside create firm, smooth skin on the outside.
The berries in this recipe bring the power of antioxidants to battle fine lines and wrinkles, coconut water hydrates from within, lemon detoxifies and alkalizes you to express your full beauty potential, and let’s not forget pearl powder! With its rich stores of bioavailable calcium and trace minerals, pearl goes right to work turning back the hands of time on your skin’s appearance. Pearl was hailed by the emperors and empresses of ancient China for well over two thousand years for its ability to preserve a youthful appearance!
