This is actually a green smoothie bowl in disguise! It tastes sweet and creamy and boasts a whole host of skin boosting ingredients such as strawberries, beetroot, kale, avocado and flaxseed. Quality sleep, exercise, plenty of water and a healthy diet all contribute to a beautiful complexion. However, I’m also passionate about using as many organic, natural products as possible. Your skin absorbs up to 60% of what you put on it, so it’s worth taking the time to check out the ingredients. Organic Surge are have a beautiful collection of organic skin and hair care. Their products are not tested on animals and are 100% free of harsh chemicals – no parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, artificial fragrances or colourants and no genetically modified ingredients. They kindly sent me a few bits to try recently and I am thrilled with them. You can find out a bit more me, my favourite products and my beauty routine on their blog here if you like.
I’m taking over their Instagram this week, please follow along for some more beauty boosting recipes.
