Ever since I hit the big ’35’ last month, I have noticed my skin starting to show signs of aging. In particular, I felt like my skin had lost that healthy glow and I always looked tired. Since healthy living has become my mantra, I immediately hit the web in search of youthful skin recipes that included natural, organic ingredients.
One of the easiest ways to get all your fruits and vegetables into your daily diet is to juice. The juice recipe I’m sharing with you today includes 6 powerful ingredients that will not only aid in clean, clear skin but boost your immune system.
According to Healthy Holistic Living, there are 23 foods that make you look younger. This Healthy Skin Juice recipe includes 4 of those foods: Kiwi, Spinach, Lemon and Green Tea. The antioxidants in Spinach and Green Tea aid in protecting your skin cells. The Kiwi and Lemons both include antioxidants and Vitamin C. This vitamin boosts your immune system and helps promote collagen production.
That brings us to the last two ingredients: basil and green apples. Dr. Axe, a natural medicine expert, notes the benefits of basil as:
- Pain-reducer (analgesic)
- Fever-reducer (antipyretic)
- Liver-protector (hepatoprotective)
- Blood vessel-protector
- Anti-stress solution
Who knew basil was so amazing? Now on to the last ingredient: green apples. These babies are also super good for you!

I found my Equal Exchange organic green tea at my favorite grocery store: Earth Fare. If you really want to try this juice recipe but don’t have a juicer, I own the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer. I have used it for years and it still works like the day I bought it!
