Anything we place on the outside of our body gets absorbed into our liver for processing and nearly all the cosmetics used are essentially toxic and damaging. How do you know if your liver is toxic ? Breath on someone first thing in the morning and if it smells bad you guessed it , the liver is damaged and needs cleaning.
Why not change the approach from trying to cover up the outside, improve the inside through food to allow the skin to glow naturally.

Why not instead wake up to something that is a food and nutrition based option that will gift you energy and balance through out the whole day, rather than short bursts that will require topping up to gain the same stimulation again and again over the day.
This smoothie includes all the daily needs for the body and being loaded with healthy fats and nutrients, once the body gets used to it you will start to be energised longer, far more relaxed, brain function in balance, leaner body, deeper sleep and quick recovery.
There are lots of healthy ingredients here, but the real energy boosters are the coconut oil, avocado, banana and blueberries. And of course the healthy combination of fats, proteins and carbohydrates will give your body just the fuel it needs for sustained performance day after day.
