Is your life being wrecked by breakouts? Do you know that countless studies have proved that whatever you eat and drink makes a direct impact on your skin? Yes, ladies, this is called the gut-skin axis, defining the relationship between your digestive system and your skin.
When your gut is irritated or inflamed from stress or a bad diet, it expresses itself directly on your skin by breaking out!
So the only way to resolve this is by including skin-clearing superfood beverage in your diet as one of the simplest and most delectable ways to get glowing and blemish-free skin.
The far most efficient techniques to drink your way to a brighter complexion is by consuming the ancient ayurvedic turmeric shots!
Turmeric originates as a dried, powdered version from its vivid orange root.
Turmeric powders are frequently used in Indian cuisine, and it has been used medicinally for thousands of years. Recently, this magic powder has been infused in modern drinks to create incredibly tasting Lattes and Golden Milk.
As we all know, historically, turmeric is a golden powder, abundantly rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-cancer compounds. It is a wonderful shot for rejuvenation and recovery.
This star ingredient, turmeric is an excellent herb to enhance the body’s antioxidant capacity. As well as it increases our metabolism rate and holds astounding properties to slow down the ageing process.
Curcumin present in turmeric is also known as a great source of antioxidant and helps to cure numerous health issues, majorly heart disease and prevents the growth of cancerous cells in our body.
Another key ingredient present in this shot is orange. Oooo… nothing more refreshing than freshly pressed orange juice!
Orange is high in vitamin c and plays a major role in your glow! Vitamin C, found in oranges, is a natural component of the skin and is necessary for collagen formation.
It is an antioxidant that protects the skin from free radical damage and improves photoprotection and aids in the healing of UV damage, by aiding the skin’s moisture retention by lowering trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL).
The main diluent which brings all the ingredients together by enhancing their flavours in this beauty shot is coconut water. Coconut water acts as a cooling agent, by reducing inflammation and heat emitted in the body due to stress and hormones. It surely has loads and loads of anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties to reduce blemishes and acne.
