Do you dream of a youthful, radiant complexion without having to spend tons of money on fancy lotions and magic potions that are loaded with toxic chemicals? The real secret to a soft and glowing skin is a clean colon. These 5 drinks will help you to detoxify your digestive system, clear up your skin and lose weight effortlessly.
Are you looking for a refreshing drink that will flush out build-up toxins and get your skin glowing? Try this 2-Minute Cucumber Cooler. Cucumber will keep your body hydrated, tighten your skin and cleanse your digestive system. It will also help you to release excess water weight, which will make you look slimmer and leaner. To prepare your Cucumber Cooler, just combine spring water with cucumber slices or juice, fresh mint, lemon or lime… And you’re good to go.
Have you ever tasted a glass of sweet, refreshing coconut water that came straight out of a young coconut? In Hawaii, coconut water is called ‘dew from the heavens’ because of its naturally sweet taste and its exceptional nutritional value. Coconut water is extremely alkalizing and one of nature’s richest natural sources of electrolytes. It’s particularly rich in B vitamins, potassium, magnesium and calcium, all of which will make your skin look younger, keep your blood sugar levels stable and help you to build lean muscle tissue. Don’t worry if young coconuts aren’t available in your area – you can try lightly pasteurized coconut water that comes in reclosable bottles or cartons too. It might taste somewhat differently and it will have lost part of its nutritional value, but it’s still a great alternative to plain old spring water.
Iced Herbal Tea
Herbal teas like red bush, gingerroot, rosehip and chamomile are loaded with antioxidants to soothe and refresh your skin. They are naturally caffeine free and have strong detoxifying properties. Herbal teas will cleanse your colon and boost your digestion. Since poor digestion is the n° 1 cause of many skin irritations, it is vital to keep you colon happy and healthy. When you’re clean on the inside, you will glow on the outside! Try this Sugar Free Red Bush Ginger Iced Tea or how about combining two large cups of soothing chamomile tea with several slices of juicy peach and a few drops of pure liquid Stevia?
You probably already know that green smoothies are one of my favourite options for a healthy breakfast, snack and pre-workout shake. Thanks to their high amount of dietary fibre, they will keep you full and energized throughout the day and they will deeply detoxify your colon. As I mentioned earlier, a clean colon is essential if you want to lose weight, improve the quality of your skin and boost your immune system. You will be able to process food more efficiently and absorb all the essential nutrients your body needs to stay young and vibrant. If you haven’t done so already, sign up to the mailing list of Julie’s Lifestyle to get your *free* raw smoothie eBook.
Is there anything more refreshing than a large piece of juicy watermelon on a hot summer day? Watermelon will satisfy your sweet tooth, keep your body hydrated and cleanse your skin.

Enjoy a large piece of ripe watermelon for breakfast, transform it into a simple pre-workout smoothie for extra energy, or try it as part of this delicious homemade watermelon lemonade with strawberries and fresh mint.
