We’re not a skin-obsessed nation, but we should be. After all, no amount of makeup can hide dark circles, dullness and fine lines. But you should also know that what you put inside your body is as important as what you slather on. So La Praire, 3Lab and Dr. Brandt move over. Check out the super drinks that guarantee gorgeous skin. And remember, you have to follow this menu as religiously as you pop those vitamins and apply those creams. We consulted Nykaa skin expert Dr. Dhimant Goleria to device a 24-hour drinks menu that will visibly add glow to you skin without you need needing to run to the loo every fifteen minutes.
Why? This is what Dr. Goleria had to say:
There’s nothing like water to keep your skin plump and hydrated. The more water you drink, the more your skin bounces back when pressed.
Green Juice made of leafy greens is a powerhouse of antioxidants and multivitamins for your face. They contain Vitamin A, C and Copper, the building blocks of healthy skin, cellular turnover and growth.
Almond Milk is a great source of Vitamin E, the primary vitamin needed for glowing skin. Plus, it prevents premature aging by destroying free radicals.
Green Tea is packed with antioxidants called catechins and polyphenols that protect skin from UV radiation by decreasing the chances of sunburn. It also decreases redness and inflammation.
Pomegranate Juice is a super drink because its choc-a-bloc with antioxidants and polyphenols, twice as many as in green tea! It also stimulates fibroblasts—collagen making factories—in skin, so you have smoother, happier skin.
Cucumber is 90 percent water-based and not just hydrates skin but is also packed with minerals like magnesium and potassium that help keep skin alkaline and reduce inflammation. So less redness!
