Why Is Everybody Drinking Collagen? - Pretty Blooming

If you are up to date when it comes to health and beauty news, chances are you've heard of collagen supplements. Everywhere I go I hear about collagen lately. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, well, I'm here to get you up to speed!

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body (and in all mammals' bodies too). This protein is very hardworking.

Pink Goddess Smoothie For Gorgeous Skin [Psst It’s Vegan]

Pink Goddess Smoothie For Gorgeous Skin - Pretty Blooming;

You are what you eat. We often hear this saying passed around either as a joke, a piece of advice, or a reminder, among others. But have we stopped to wonder how true this saying is?

When it comes to our skin, what we eat affects our skin's health. This sentiment wasn't prevalent back in the day (a few decades ago) -- that diet and skin condition have a relationship. But several studies in recent years have concluded that yes, diet impacts our skin!

As the largest organ of our body, our skin benefits from the nutrition we get from the food we eat. This statement is also true the other way around. When we eat food that is unhealthy or those that are known to cause specific skin problems, our skin may negatively be impacted. With that, we really, and I mean really need to watch what we eat.

Knowing this fact about diet and skin won't immediately propel us to change our dietary habits. I know it can be hard to change the norm we are so comfortable with -- especially if that norm consists of little to no fruits or vegetables. But taking the first step will go a long way! And I have just the right delicious drink for you to get moving towards a healthier lifestyle for healthier skin.

Today I am sharing an easy 5-minute pink smoothie for gorgeous skin. Read on to learn how to make it, and your skin will thank you for it.
