ACAI BOWL FOR GLOWING SKIN
I pride myself on taking care of my skin.
Somewhere along testing a ton of beauty products as a beauty editor, and discovering Dermalogica and its never ending wonders thanks to my long-time friend pro makeup artist/hairstylist, Andrea Claire, I decided that spending my hard-earned money on skincare products that work is actually worth it (although I'm not saying no to Botox or fillers).
While your skin may be the last organ to get nutrients from the food you eat (which is why, chances are, those collagen drinks you've been drinking don't work), if you eat well consistently, whatever little nutrients that get to your skin will reap benefits.
I have a regimen to what I eat when I wake up, but sometimes I want a little sugar in the morning, which is when I will whip up my acai (pronounced ah-sigh-EE) bowl - it contains antioxidants, all the good stuff to help your skin and it's delicious.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 1 pack of frozen acai
- 1 teaspoon of Sunwarrior Ormus Supergreens powder
- 1 teaspoon of chia seeds
- 1 mango + 1 clementine, but feel free to add pineapples, berries
- Gojiberries to taste
- Coconut shreds
- 1-2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of hemp oil, a great source of Omega 6 fatty acids which helps dry skin
- 1 tablet of Schizandra
- 1 tablet of Rehmannia
- 1/2 cup of rice milk
I take natural supplements like Schizandra and Rehmannia on a regular basis to help energy levels, help metabolic function and to help my skin as well on a regular basis, but please consult your doctor before adding any supplements to your diet.
Blend that baby. Make sure it's chunky. For some reason, my acai bowls always turns out brown, so to pretty it up for the 'gram, you can add berries, coconut, and all that pretty stuff.
Looks pretty good, doesn't it?
