Say Yes To Korean Glass Skin (With These Unbelievably Yummy Smoothies)

Korean Glass Skin Comes From Within

Let’s have a small beauty talk.

Who does not want to have Korean Glass Skin?

I do!

I probably would be the self-confessed expert on DIY home facials, Korean Skin Care, what treatments to have at the spa, but lately, my skin just does not glow!

I must be doing something wrong here!

Then, I remember an old aunt that I visited on her death bed. She had the most beautiful skin!  When I asked her what was her secret, she whispered, “Agua.”

Now isn’t that simple! Water hydrates our skin.

Also, she told me that what we put in our body is more powerful than any serum or moisturizer that we slather on our skin.

“No junk food. Just eat fruits, “she told me.

Let’s load up on smoothies for the skin!

Well, it has been really warm lately. I have promised myself that I will have a healthy, go-for-the-Korean-glass-skin smoothie every day, because why not?

So, here are my Five Smoothies Absolutely Guaranteed to give you Korean Glass Skin:

Apple Papaya Smoothie for Korean Glass Skin

Who would have thought that these two fruits would make for a great combination?

I have never really developed a taste for papaya, especially if it is over-ripe, but with this apple-papaya combination? OMG, I cant even!

Sweet and tart apples mixed with juicy papaya in a base of almond milk and silken tofu makes for a protein-rich smoothie that’s full of fruity goodness!

Here are the nutrients you can get:

  • Skin boosting enzymes from the apple and
  • Vitamins from the papaya that will nourish and tone your skin.

What You’ll Need:

  • Half a medium-size apple, cored, sliced, and frozen
  • About half a cup papaya chunks, frozen
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • Half a cup silken tofu (not to be mistaken with firm tofu)
  • Sweet Basil or mint leaves plus a stick of cinnamon for presentation purposes (optional)

Let’s Blend Up This Fruity Smoothie!

1.Prepare ingredients for this apple papaya smoothie the day before because we need the fruities to be really frozen.  If you cannot freeze them the day before, try to limit the ice you will add to just about four cubes.  The silken tofu and the fruits’ flesh will be enough to thicken the smoothie.

2. Place all your ingredients in a blender. By the way, I use this blender that I got from Zalora because it is so convenient. You just blend and go!
