A wise man once told me 'life's too short to deny yourself the little pleasures in life'.
Whether liquid of food format!
But, are there drinks that can helps us look and feel our best?
Skin rejuvenating drinks will hydrate your body and help your skin look soft and supple for years to come.
Here are just a few to start:
- Green Tea
Used for centuries to heal common ailments, green tea is packed with powerful antioxidants which the skin and even hair loss (I bought a few packs for Henry! LOL. Not really ...).
It’s been the top beverage to help reduce cell damage that causes sagging skin and loss of firmness. Add a little honey to sweeten it for a after meal drink.
- Oolong Tea
Oolong tea has been known to gradually brighten skin and help with pigmentation, clearing away sun spots and age spots.
- Pink Grapefruit Juice
An antioxidant ingredient found in grapefruit called lycopene can help combat the body’s cell that causes fine lines and sagging skin to occur.
- Soy Milk
You could substitute milk for soy to add to your collagen boosting diet. Soy milk has been found to be helpful to keep your skin firm and tight. With a high quantity of flavanoids, it is beneficial to preserve collagen in the body. These antioxidants help protect the skin from sensitivity caused by sun damage.
Drink right and your skin will thank you!
PS: Doesn't mean you can't have the odd glass of wine ... I do!

Be careful when you take grapefruit juice, as it does not react well to several medications, blood pressure and thyroid for example.

Good info; However, if you’ve an Autoimmune illness or suffer with body aches and pains, then Lycopene ( grapefruit juice) and Soya milk isn’t a good idea…Soy is an inflammatory product. Stay safe 😊
