You are what you eat. We often hear this saying passed around either as a joke, a piece of advice.

But have you 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.

Why Is This Smoothie So Good For Your Skin?

Having a smoothie for breakfast is an easy way to nourish your body and your skin. Smoothies are generally a good idea if you are trying to incorporate more fruits or veggies into your diet but are not used to their taste. 

Just remember to keep your hands off that sugar! Luckily, our recipe for today will not be sweetened through artificial means. 

On that note, let's take a look at what makes this pink smoothie so good for our skin.
  • A smoothie for breakfast is an excellent way to sneak more hydration into your diet. Of course, you should still drink your eight glasses of water a day, but adding a portion of this pink yumminess will aid your skin in staying radiant, healthy, and youthful.
  • ​Raspberries are a rich source of antioxidants in the form of vitamin C. Antioxidants are essential for maintaining youthful skin and a beautiful complexion. Raspberry seeds contain a high amount of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, and both found to be great for relieving dry skin.  
  • Bananas are adequate sources of potassium and supply vitamin B6, fiber and carbohydrates, and some vitamin C. Not only do these berries (yes, bananas are botanically berries!) add a naturally sweet flavor to the pink smoothie, these also promote clear, glowing skin.
  • Coconut! I am in love with coconut. Milk, cream, oil, flakes, water -- you name it! Adding coconut milk to the recipe gives the smoothie rich, creamy texture. Moreover, coconut milk is an excellent source of copper and vitamin C, which helps maintain the elasticity and flexibility of the skin.
  • ​Flax seeds are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and fiber. Not only do they improve blood sugar, but these seeds also help reduce wrinkles, give the skin a healthy glow, and fight sun damage. Add flax seed to your smoothie to boost collagen production and help reduce inflammation from skin exposure.

Combine all these beneficial and nutrition-packed ingredients, and you get a creamy pink smoothie with frozen raspberries and coconut milk! 

Do I need to say more? The recipe, of course! Read on below.

Final Thoughts

Before we wrap this up, I just want to remind everyone who took the time to read this about one thing. This recipe is for a pink smoothie for gorgeous skin, but it isn't a miracle potion

If you don't exercise regularly, eat a healthy skin diet, and take proper care of your skin, you'll never have a glowing complexion. Simply think of this recipe as either: an additional boost for your current healthy and effective routine; or, as a stepping stone towards a healthy skin diet.
