Refreshing, invigorating, and relaxing, fruit juices provide the perfect balance of health benefits for today’s eat-on-the-run lifestyle. They provide a variety of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and a good amount of fiber.

Not only can juicing leave your skin with an all-natural glow, it can help with healing chronic disease and flushing out toxins from the organs.

If you're struggling with acne or other aggravated skin conditions, learning to detox your body with the power of juicing is a must. It is important to know that fruits and vegetables can serve as potent detoxifiers and you can create juice combinations that serve you best. EHC brings you some of the mixes for a flawless skin.

Carrots

Carrots have an insane amount of vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant that prevents cells from degenerating, helps to slow aging, and maintain a youthful appearance. Vitamin A helps the body to maintain tissue growth along with healthy vision, bones, and teeth. Carrots also contain vitamin C, which helps the body produce collagen. Collagen is essential for skin elasticity, preventing wrinkles, and slowing signs of aging. The potassium in carrots plays a role in the growth of new skin cells, helping the body maintain the proper electrolyte balance, reduce acne/blemishes, and prevent and cure scars or dark spots on the skin.

Kale

Kale is a powerful leafy green vegetable that packs a mean acne-fighting punch. Kale, which is an incredibly effective anti-inflammatory food, is an excellent source of nutrition, including vitamins A, C, K, E, B1, B2, B3, calcium, beta-carotene, phosphorous, iron, copper, magnesium, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and the carotenoid lutein. The vitamin A content promotes the repair and maintenance of the skin, and the omega-3 fatty acids add to its anti-inflammatory properties.

Beets

Beets are full of nutrients that are essential for healthy, glowing skin. They are blood and liver cleansers, and when curing skin conditions, cleansing the blood is vital. Beets are very powerful and potent, so it is best to never use an entire beet in one juice. If you have kidney stones, don't drink juices with beets.

Parsley

Parsley is a popular herb rich in vitamins A and C. It also helps clear blemishes and maintain an even skin tone, while also cleansing the urinary tract, liver, and kidneys. Parsley has high levels of vitamin K, which can improve skin elasticity and speed up the wound-healing process.

Ginger

Ginger is a power ingredient that can be added to any juice to increase the health benefits and boost your immune system. This root is perfect for acne because it is supercharged to reduce inflammation, and contains nutrients like magnesium, potassium, manganese, and vitamin B6, along with anti-aging antioxidants.

Lemon

Lemons are powerful citrus fruits that are effective as a food and medicine. They contain vitamin C, citric acid, and B vitamins. The benefits relevant to clearing your skin include purifying the blood, cleansing the kidneys, and assisting in elimination of toxins.
