Luminous Skin – Tonic Recipe

This juice is the perfect skin drink for the warmer months, containing beautiful glow-giving fruits and veggies. Cucumber is hydrating and is also rich in silica, which promotes collagen production.

Mango is not only fresh and delicious, but also contains beta carotene which helps to protect the skin from sun damage. The leafy green purslane is a powerful anti-inflammatory, and is high in Omega-3s which promote glowing, younger looking skin.

Lemon and coriander are also wonderful for the liver – coriander helps to chelate heavy metals from the body and lemon stimulates the liver to produce enzymes required for the body to digest and detox efficiently.

 

Ingredients

1 cucumber

½ lemon, peeled

1 cup purslane

½ mango, peeled and pit removed

Handful of cilantro

Handful of mint

 

Directions

Put all ingredients through a juicer.  Alternate between the cucumber, mango, purslane and coriander to help move everything through smoothly.

You can also have this drink as a smoothie – just blend up all the ingredients with ½ cup of water.
