Does you skin look dull and lifeless? Do you envy flawless looking skin of models or actresses you adore? So, what do you normally do to achieve that type of radiant looking skin? Buy moisturizing creams, lotions, skin brightening serums, fairness creams and other skincare products that are advertised on TV, magazines and online sites?

Skincare products do aid in keeping skin soft and moisturized. However, healthy and glowing skin does not come from these superficial beauty products alone. It primarily comes from within. A healthy diet, constituting more of natural and nutritious food items like fruits and vegetables, keeping your body well-hydrated by drinking sufficient water and fresh juices and having a good sleeping pattern, is the best way to improve the quality of your skin. 

Why are Fresh Juices Good for Glowing Skin?

To begin with, start eating healthy. It is not only good for your skin and hair but your overall health. However, if you do not enjoy eating fruits and veggies regularly, then start blending them into a juice or smoothie. This is the easiest way to add a variety of important and naturally available vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and other important nutrients to your body in the quickest way possible. Freshly made juices from fruits and vegetables not only aid in weight loss, strengthening your immune system and cleansing your digestive system but also helps keep your skin hydrated and nourished.
Now that you know the benefits of juicing, let me guide you through 7 fresh fruit and vegetable juice recipes that are tasty, easy to make and super effective in making your skin naturally glow from within. 

1) Carrot Juice: 

How many times has your mom or grand mom told you to eat your carrots, as they are good for you? Many times, isn't it? And why is that? Because a bright orange/reddish-orange looking carrot, is a rich source of Vitamin A (typically in the form of beta carotene) and is known to be very good for the eyes. Carrot is a rich source of Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, fiber and antioxidants. The good amount of antioxidants in particular, is known to slow down the process of ageing by fighting off free radicals produced in the body. Additionally, carrots are also good in keeping off skincare woes like acne, pigmentation, uneven skin tone and even sun damage at bay.

Aren't these so many benefits of a simple looking carrot really tempting enough for you to try making and consuming carrot juice?

How to Prepare Carrot Juice for Glowing Skin:

Freshly prepared carrot juice is not only healthy and tasty but also makes for a great breakfast time juice. To make carrot juice for glowing skin, take about 4 medium sized tender carrots. Wash them well and scrub out the outer root-like parts and any other impurities present. Cut these carrots into small 1-inch pieces, so that they do not damage the blender you are going to put it into. Put all the carrot pieces in your blender/mixer and run the machine. Add a bit of water from time to time to make it into a puree and finally into a consistency enough to drink it as a juice. Drink this freshly prepared carrot juice immediately after preparation. 

If you want to improve the taste of this simple carrot juice, then squeeze out the juice of one lemon and add an inch-sized ginger while blending.

2) Beetroot juice: 

One of the most loved and go-to vegetable juices for many health lovers is the beetroot juice. Beetroot or beet juice (as its commonly referred to) has high amount of Vitamins A, C, K, folic acid, magnesium, zinc and copper in it. Along with these nutrients, beet is enriched with antioxidants, iron and potassium, which help purify blood and improve your health from within. In addition to this, beet juice also offers anti-inflammatory properties which aids substantially in improving the outward quality of your skin by reducing blemishes and marks, evening out skin tone and fighting acne. 

Overall, a hydrating juice, beet juice aids in revitalizing your skin and giving it a naturally healthy glow, which is what you are trying to attain. Try consuming a glass of this juice in-between meals or during breakfast, and it will be good enough to keep you going for an entire day. 

How to Prepare Beet Juice for Glowing Skin: 

To prepare beet juice in a straightforward manner, follow the carrot juice method - i.e. wash 3 medium sized beets, peel its skin, cut it into very small pieces and then put them in a juicer/blenderRun the machine. Then add water from time to time, till you get a texture that turns from a puree to a consistency that is appropriate enough for you to drink. Strain the mixer if you want the juice to run smoothly (optional) or drink it as is.

Apart from the above simple beet juice preparation, here, I would also like to give you the recipe of Apple-Beet-Carrot (ABC) juice or miracle juice as it is popularly known as. ABC juice is a big hit among people who want to get away from the monotonous taste of a single ingredient and enhance the flavor of their juice. It is also a wonderful way to add in a variety of nutrients to the body in the simplest ways possible. To make this juice, take 1 beet, 2 carrots and 2 apples (green/red - your choice). Wash and peel them (except the apples). Chop all the ingredients into very small pieces and run it in your juicer/blender, till it forms a thick puree. To this, add an inch of fresh ginger (optional), squeeze out the juice of one lemon and then blend all the ingredients with enough water to turn it into a drinkable consistency. Pass the pulpy mix through a fine strainer and drink it immediately.

3) Tomato Juice:

Before I tell you more about tomato juice, let me ask - how many of you use it during cooking or making face packs? Most of you, don't you? This shows how important this small and humble looking red veggie/fruit is. 

Packed with Vitamins A, C, B, potassium and a good amount of lycopene (a type of antioxidant), tomato juice is known to help transform even a dull looking skin and restore it to a healthy and pinkish glow. Furthermore, tomato juice also aids in reducing oiliness and open pores, getting rid of tanning and treating skin problems like signs of ageing. Use them in your face packs, as well as juice it up and drink it regularly to enjoy its full health and beauty benefits.

How to Prepare Tomato Juice for Glowing Skin:

Tomato juice can not only be easily made and consumed early morning, but there are several ways in which you can enhance the flavor of this beverage. If you find your simple homemade tomato juice boring and bland (beverage made by blending tomatoes and water only), then you can add a few fruits/veggies of your choice or spice it up a bit by adding a few herbs. 

However, the one tomato juice preparation that I would really like to tell you all here, is the  tomato-carrot juice recipe for glowing skin. To make this drink, pick 2 ripe medium-sized tomatoes and 1 tender medium to big carrot. Wash them thoroughly and cut them into small pieces. Run these chopped fruit/veggie in your juicer/blender. To this, add 2 stalks of celery and water and turn the puree into a beverage. You can drink this classic tomato-carrot juice as is, or add a pinch of black pepper powder to jazz it up a bit.

4) Orange Juice:

Who doesn't enjoy a glass of fresh orange juice in the morning? I certainly do. In fact many families and people world over, enjoy this bright citric juice during breakfast and even before meals. High in Vitamin C, folates, potassium, magnesium and antioxidants, orange juice not only gives several health benefits to the people consuming it regularly but also improves their skin considerably by preventing it from getting dry and chapped. For all those who want to attain a firm yet supple skin and control premature signs of ageing, try having a glass (or at the most two) of orange juice every alternate day and see the visible effects it brings to your skin.

Using a strainer, filter this mixture over a bowl or pan. Pour this juice in a glass and drink it immediately. If you want to sweeten your juice a bit, then  add a teaspoon of honey to it. 

5) Lemon Juice or Lemon Water:

One of the most easy-to-make, hydrating and commonly consumed beverage is lemon juice or lemon water. The wonders of this juice are so many, that honestly, if I make a list of its benefits, then this post would be insufficient. However, I do have a separate post, 7 Impressive Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water, were I have written about its health benefits in detail.

As far as skin is concerned, lemon juice is not only consumed orally but also used topically in many homemade facial packs to get clear and supple skin. Be it skin brightening, fighting pimples, lightening scars, treating blackheads or improving the overall quality of skin, lemon juice is invaluable for its wide range of beauty purposes.

To prepare lemon water or lemonade, take one lemon (preferably small or medium sized) and cut it into two halves. Now, using a squeezer or by using pressure from your hand, squeeze out the juice in a glass, while taking care to discard the seeds. Fill this glass with water (preferably lukewarm). Add a teaspoon of honey to it. Stir this freshly prepared lemon water properly and consume it immediately. 

Try consuming this drink early morning to kickstart your metabolism everyday.

6) Spinach Juice:

Are you skipping this section to avoid reading about green juice. A quite a few would. Well, spinach juice may not sound tasty enough but you also cannot discount the many benefits it gives to your health and skin. Packed with abundant Vitamins (like Vitamins A, B complex, C, E and K) and nutrients (like potassium, carotene, manganese, magnesium and folic acid), this is one juice you should seriously consider in your diet to promote good health and a radiant skin.

To make fresh spinach apple smoothie at home is super easy. Just 5 minutes of your time, a couple of ingredients thrown in and you are done.

Thereafter cut the apple and celery into small pieces. Put these two ingredients in your juicer/blender along with 1/2 glass of water. Run the machine. Now add washed spinach and lemon juice to it.

To gain benefits from this juice, try consuming a glass of it in the morning or in-between meals (at least twice a week) and promote glowing skin and healthy hair naturally.

7) Cucumber Juice:

Want to keep your skin hydrated and nourished not just from outside but also within? Then drink a glass of cool cucumber juice everyday.

Cucumbers are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, ascorbic acid, silica (a type of mineral) and antioxidants. They are also rich in water content. All these valuable nutrients and water not only work wonderfully well in promoting weight loss, cooling and hydrating your body and boosting its immunity, but also works equally well in improving the quality of your skin and leaving it rejuvenated. 

Though this low-calorie drink is best consumed early morning, you can drink a glass or more of it anytime during the day to reap its many useful benefits.

How to Prepare Cucumber Juice for Glowing Skin:

To prepare a refreshing cooler that will serve as a detox as well as skin-friendly drink, you need 2 cucumbers, a handful of fresh mint, juice of 1 lemon, an inch of ginger and 1 teaspoon of honey. To prepare this drink, wash, peel and cut the cucumber into small pieces. Add the cucumber pieces, washed mint leaves, juice of 1 lemon, ginger and honey in your mixer/juicer. Blend this well. Add 3/4th glass of water and again blend it. Add water, only if needed. Serve this drink in your favorite glass and enjoy this drink early mornings. This refreshing cucumber mint lemonade is also a great beverage to have during summers.

Additionally, there is another very popular cucumber celery juice recipe that I would like to add here. The procedure for preparing this juice is same as above. You only need to replace the mint with 3 stalks of celery. If you want to flavor it up a bit, then you can also add 1 apple or an orange to it while blending.

By the way, aren't these fresh juices quick to prepare? Drink these power-packed combination juices and smoothies on a regular basis and see your metabolism getting a positive boost with visible improvements to your skin and hair within a couple of weeks.
