You are not only what you eat, you are also what you drink. We'll show you a drinking plan that will make your skin firm, fresh and beautiful!
It's not for nothing that supermodels ALWAYS have a water bottle with them. They drink several liters of water a day, because they know that this way their skin will stay radiantly beautiful. And even when we all know this, we rarely adhere to it. Why? Because we often need precise instructions to finally pull things off.
This "master plan" now comes from the US dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, who created a 24-hour drinking plan for Marie Claire's journalist Lauren Valenti. If you stick to it, you will soon be rewarded with radiant, beautiful skin:
24-hour drink menu for beautiful skin
In the course of the day: 8 glasses of water
In the morning: 1 glass of green smoothie + 1 cup of coffee with soy milk
Afternoon: 2 cups of green tea
In the evening: 1 glass of pomegranate juice
Before bedtime: 1 glass of water with cucumber slices (Infused Water)
What the drinks can do:
It supplies the skin with the necessary moisture and makes it look plumper, fresher and firmer. Wrinkles are destroyed in this way. Our detox expert Dr. Winkler knows: "Nothing detoxifies the body better than water." Here she explains how you can manage to drink more water: You can learn to be thirsty.
Green smoothie with kale
Did you know that kale has the most vitamins of all vegetables? The contained vitamin A promotes cell growth and thus ensures beautiful skin and hair. Vitamin C is the basic building block for the production of collagen, which in turn slows down the aging process and strengthens our connective tissue. Here is a recipe for a green smoothie with cabbage:
- 2 leaves of kale
- 2 apples
- 1 pear
- some lemon juice
- ginger to taste
Put everything into the blender and pour water until a creamy liquid is formed.
Soy milk instead of cow milk
You don't want to go without your café latte in the morning? Do not you have to. But switch from cow's milk to plant-based milk. Experts have long believed that animal milk is bad for our digestion and therefore also bad for our skin. Soy milk, on the other hand, contains isoflavones, which work great against wrinkles.
It is rich in the antioxidants, catechins and plyphenols, which are known for their anti-aging properties. In addition, green tea has anti-inflammatory effects and protects the skin from UV rays. Great side effect: It's very invigorating, like coffee - but much gentler on the stomach.
The red fruit even contains twice as many antioxidants as green tea. If you regularly eat pomegranate seeds or drink the juice from them, the skin will soon be visibly more beautiful. Inflammation heals, wrinkles disappear and the complexion looks healthier.
There are many vitamins, iron, magnesium and potassium in cucumbers. The cucumber water also has an anti-inflammatory effect and ensures that the pH value of the skin remains in balance.
