Summer is amongst us and we need to hydrate. A great way to do this is through nutritious smoothies that not only get our water content up but provide a host of other health (and beauty) benefits too. Smoothies also provide an essential way to feed our skin with key ingredients for healthy, glowing skin - as they say, the best way to achieve clear, luminious skin is through the inside out.

Ingredients such avocado, which provides Omega fatty acids, spinach and kale which are nutrient-dense age defying superfoods, and collagen-producing Vitamin C are the holy grail of an effective skin-enhancing smoothie.

This glowing skin smoothie from Sally’s Baking Addiction is not only energising and delicious but will give you a healthy glow from within.
