Bananas contain fiber, vitamin B6, and potassium. They support kidney, bone, and cardiovascular health. In addition, the potassium in bananas helps to deflate problem areas of the skin.
Ginger is also perfect as an anti-inflammatory, helping to keep skin blemish-free. It has antiseptic properties helping to keep the skin clear and free of blemishes. Additionally, ginger electrifies skin cells and is great for good digestion, which, in turn, helps improve skin health.
Almond butter supports healthy skin thanks to vitamin E and various minerals. And as a bonus to our blemish lightening smoothie, almonds can help curb hunger and support weight loss.
Hemp seeds contain anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids that help reduce and prevent pimples on the face. They provide a complete, easy-to-digest plant-based protein and contain the necessary nutrients for clear skin, energy, and optimal thyroid health.
