You probably (or hopefully) take the best care of your skin by never breaking any skincare rules and pampering yourself with facials and face masks every now and then. 

 

We’ve covered our favourite home remedies to banish acne and even all-natural ways to get rid of blackheads using ingredients that you can find in your own kitchen. Now, we want to talk about some ingredients that you can put in your body that is just as important as those you put on your skin. Smoothies are a superb source for your daily intake of fruits and veggies because they’re easy to make and soooo delicious.

This smoothie is so pretty you’d be surprised to know that one of its key ingredients is purple cabbage! Don’t freak out, it might sound weird, but it’s 100% delicious. Purple cabbage is chock-full of vitamin C (which is essential for collagen production) and antioxidants. Mixed with blueberries, you’ll have a kick-ass combo that can help your body flush our toxins that could potentially wreck havoc on your skin. 

 

Blend: 

- 1/4 cup grated purple cabbage 

- 1/4 cup blueberries 

- 1/4 cup coconut water or milk (normal/soy/almond)

- handful of ice (optional)
