Start your day with a green smoothieWe absolutely love green smoothies here at Bohemian Mama! Not only are they super delish, but they’re packed full of skin friendly nutrients. For extra skin boosting goodness, try this simple recipe. The cucumber is high in silica, whilst the kale and spinach are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants; ginger aids circulation and healthy circulation = glowing skin! Gorgeous Skin Green Smoothie Recipe
- 1 ripe pear
- 1 handful organic kale,
- 1 handful organic spinach

- 1 inch of ginger
- Half a cucumber
- 1 tablespoon of pumpkin seeds.

Strike a (yoga) poseYoga is great for your body and your skin. Regular practice helps to reduce stress (less wrinkles from all that frowning) and increase blow flow, giving skin a healthy glow. Poses that increase blood flow towards the face - like headstands or downward dog - give the best skin boosting benefits. We love the Forward Fold With Hands Clasped pose from this recent MindBodyGreen article: 4 Yoga Poses That Will Give Your Skin A Gorgeous Glow.
Eat more healthy fats[caption id="attachment_587" align="alignright" width="200"] Avocado Toast with Smoked Salmon: What’s Gaby Cooking[/caption] Healthy skin starts from the inside, so if you want to get gorgeous, glowing skin this summer you need to start looking at what you’re putting into your body. Eventually, what you eat and drink shows itself through your skin, which means stuffing yourself with junk food everyday could mean disaster for your complexion. Natural, healthy fats are essential for balancing blood sugar, absorbing fat soluble vitamins and hydrating your skin from within. Great sources of healthy fats include:
- Egg yolks
- Coconut oil
- Grass-fed Butter
