Skin Deep Juice

This is one of my favourite juices from Michael Van Straten’s Super Juice book, he is the UK’s best known practitioner of complementary medicine, a leading osteopath, naturopath, acupuncturist and nutritional consultant.

I have been a fan of juicing for years with a little help from my old faithful Magimix Juicer, and love to experiment with different combinations, it’s also helpful to use up fruit and veg that you may otherwise waste! Beauty is definitely more than skin deep, and it’s pointless having anti-ageing treatments and using topical products if your not feeding your skin from within with antioxidants and nutrients!

I am a fan of the Apple, Carrot and ginger combo, but when my skin needs an extra boost, this really hits the spot! Here’s what you need  for the Skin Deep Juice

  • 4 Organic Carrots – unpeeled
  • 2 Asparagus Spears
  • Half a medium Iceberg Lettuce
  • 1 handful of Spinach Leaves

This is super rich in Vitamins A and C, Beta-Carotene and Folic Acid. Rich in Iron and Vitamin E, contains Potassium, Silica and some B Vitamins. Not only does it protect against skin infections thanks to its high Vitamin A and Beta-Carotene content, Skin Deep also provides plenty of Vitamin E, which helps maintain supple and wrinkle free skin! This juice is also a blood builder – which means more skin nutrients are carried to the surface where they’re needed.
