As the founder of Suki Skincare, Suki Kramer makes natural skin-care products—like her stand-out Exfoliating Foaming Facial Wash—that are science-driven and results-oriented. But even Kramer says that for all-around glowing, clear skin, what you put in your body is just as important.
“There are a ton of nutritious foods, vitamins, and minerals that nourish and balance skin, and smoothies are a great, quick way to drink up all the nutrients you need in one delicious glass,” says the Berkshires-based beauty maven.
For the best results, what you put on your skin and in your body should work hand-in-hand, she says. How does she put that into practice? We got Kramer’s go-to recipe for a natural skin-care glow.
Green Glow Smoothie
Spinach and kale are terrific sources of vitamin A, which is essential for skin repair and eliminating raised spots and blackheads. The yogurt and honey are two more skin-tastic ingredients. Yogurt’s loaded with live active cultures that help your digestive tract work at its best (the better your digestive tract runs, the better your skin will look). Honey is equally awesome with its natural antioxidant and anti-microbial properties. If you can find it, use Manuka honey. The spirulina adds powerful detoxing qualities, plus it’s rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals.
