Cucumber Apple Ginger Juice For Strong Hair & Smooth Skin

 

 

Cool Cucumber juice with apple, ginger, celery and lemon is beauty tonic in a glass. Tap into the power of Cucumber juice for great for skin & hair! I recently started juicing again. I used to juice regularly 2 yrs back and was in my best health at that time. Then, due to various reasons (excuses really) I cut back on juicing and my energy dropped. Well, like they say, if you want to make time for something you will, so am back to juicing regularly and loving it! This cucumber juice recipe is one of my favorites. It’s cool, creamy and easy to make. It also doubles as a green juice and is a great way to make your body more alkaline. Best part about it; it’s the easiest veggie to juice. If you buy organic, you don’t even need to peel. Just dunk and hit the button for a cup of cool cucumber juice.

 

 

Cucumber Juice as a Skin Hair Health Tonic!

Since cucumbers are 96% water they make the perfect juice veggie. They hydrate skin with valuable nutrients. When applied externally, the astringent properties in cucumbers draw out dirt and cleanse the pores and reduce puffiness around the eyes.  They are very high in silica which gives you strong hair, nails and skin.  The potassium in celery juice helps to regulate body fluid and stimulate urine production, making it an important help to rid the body of excess fluid. Often after few days of drinking celery juice your face and neck look slimmer and you lose bloat.  Ginger has antiseptic properties and keeps the skin clear and blemish free. Apples are loaded with beta carotene and apple peels are particularly rich in polyphenols which offer antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection to slow aging of skin. Put all these together with some lemon and you have a great edible tonic to nourish skin and hair from the inside out!

 

 

 

Just a note!

Celery has the highest pesticide rate according to the Dirty Dozen list put out by the EPA! It is preferable that you buy it organic when you want to juice, but if you can’t use a fruit and veggie wash to remove pesticides. I have a homemade version of the fruit veggie wash which costs only a few cents to make. Apples, cucumbers can be lightly peeled or washed with the homemade wash to remove pesticide. If you have never juiced and want to get started, read this!

  4. this juice looks so fresh and refreshing! One of this recipes that make me wish for a juicer (and a counter space to put one ;-) ).

  5. I want to thank fantastic mixture. I just wine basket it tasted awesome: -)
    I have a webpage with the help of white recommendations professionally for everybody who is concerned. You can find it at http://recipes-for-food.com

  6. Fruits and veggies are great to look for if you are searching for tools to detoxify your body and release those toxins that are the main reason you are having the big problem of your life, skin problem.

    It is possible to have a breakdown of calories for your drink: carbs, fats, sodium etc. This would be helpful for those who are trying to lose weight, whilst eating healthy. Beautiful site otherwise, thank you very much.

  9. Thanks for the reminder about the pesticides! The drink looks delicious!

  10. mmm !can’t wait to try it. i could really do with a drink to help my skin and hair. peerrfect for summer!

  11. Wow, I just read this post and now i know that cocumber could help also for hair? hmm, that sounds great, I thought Cocumber is only for treating pimples.

  12. I started juicing a year ago, it’s time consuming but worth it. Just don’t stop you can tell the difference. I juiced this without recipe, just used things from the frig.

  13. each time i used to read smaller posts which as well clear their motive,
    and that is also happening with this paragraph which I am reading at this
    time.

  14. We are what we eat. If you do not consume enough vitamins on a daily basis, sooner or later your body will ask for them in its own way. Skin, hair and nails are the basic ‘indicators’ of your overall health. Therefore, in case something is wrong with any of these three, you should look for a reason inside. I was very anxious with my hairloss, which used to happen each year in autumn-winter time. I started using external remedies, but in best case they were giving just a temporary effect. Then I have consulted a trichologist. He advised me to revise my nutrition and pointed the products which are especially needed for healthy hair. Besides, he recommended the natural nutritional supplement – Hair Gain Formula by Military Grade – which was supposed to enhance healthy hair growth. I must say, that following his advices during a year, I noticed that my hair became much thicker near the roots, which means that new hair is growing. Moreover, my hairdresser told me that my hair became more shiny and healthy.
