Drink yourself beautiful

The best green juice recipes for glowing skin, glossy hair and a healthy body.

They are a must-have for busy, jet-setting models to keep looking glowing and fresh during the hectic Fashion Week month.

Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley swears by them and catwalk star Karlie Kloss even tweeted a picture of her Michael Kors handbag stuffed with a selection of these miracle workers.

We are, of course, talking about green power juices!

While delicious berry-flavoured or banana-based smoothies are a favourite amongst the health-conscious, it is the slightly less appetizing-looking vegetable recipes that really pack a punch in the beauty and nutrition stakes.
“I don’t believe in fads. I believe in eating clean and balanced. I do a lot of juicing, a lot of green smoothies,” Rosie Huntington-Whiteley told the UK edition of Grazia. “I put all my super-foods and supplements into my juice and I have that first thing.”

Blending greens like spinach and celery with carrots and apples, the model-turned-actress likes to add Asian algae product Chlorella to her smoothies. Containing twice as much protein as spinach and packed with vitamins and minerals, the wholefood helps to reduce body fat as well as combating several skin conditions including ageing effects such as spider veins, psoriasis and rosacea.

American super model Karlie, who is renowned for her flawless complexion and Amazonian figure, is a fan of New York based company Liquiteria, which serves up cold-pressed juices and super-food smoothies full of easily digestible raw vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Karlie fills up on the energy-boosting All Greens range, with ingredients including apple, kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, celery and cucumber – all blended in one recipe.
