Beauty expert, Liz Earle says “juices are the ideal skin food for this and can also be easily adapted to suit varying skin conditions.” In an article published by UK newspaper The Telegraph Liz Earle declares herself as an enthusiastic juicer saying that “good skin is created from within and it needs a steady stream of highly absorbable nutrients to keep it supple, strong and clear.” Her glowing complexion attests to the benefits that micronutrients in freshly pressed fruit and vegetables can bring.
Liz Earle’s Greenie Genie: A Juice to Help Acne or Problem Skin
Alkalising green juices are especially beneficial for improving acne. Go for ingredients such as asparagus, celery, parsley and watercress, and don’t overload on high-fructose fruits. Carrot juice, rich in beta-carotene, is also a useful addition, but try to keep the juices mostly green. This is a deliciously light juice with a refreshing ginger tang. The grassiness of the green ingredients is slightly sweetened by the apples.
2 medium apples
2 medium carrots
2cm (1in) cube ginger, unpeeled
4 small asparagus spears
small handful parsley
small handful freshly cut wheatgrass, or 1 level tsp of powdered greens, such as wheatgrass, chlorella or spirulina
How to Make It
Juice together all the ingredients, in their entirety, stirring in your chosen powdered greens (if using) just before serving.
