You may have heard rave reviews about how delicious coconut water is, but do you know how amazing it is for your face and body?

It also keeps you hydrated, keeping your skin looking smooth and nourished with beautifying vitamins. Not only that, but coconut water is fat free and anti-inflammatory (good news for those who suffer from acne or psoriasis).
If you’ve wondered what exactly goes into the Green Juices that everyone’s drinking to detox and lose weight, here’s a quick recipe for a Lean Green smoothie that’s ideal before a quick workout or for breakfast!
You can eat your way to pretty with that tasty chocolate bar!
If you’re a bit of a chocolate addict like me, don’t worry, it’s still okay for you as long as you keep your addiction to the good stuff to sugar-free 70% Dark Chocolate!
In fact, dark chocolate has Flavonols to keep your skin protected from sun damage (shields you from harmful UV rays), whilst Cocoa helps reduce stress hormones, making you feel calm, (this means less collagen breakdown so you have fewer wrinkles!). You’ll also get a vitamin hit of Calcium, Iron, and vitamins C, D, E, A and vitamin B1 from pure chocolate to help repair dry skin.
