Your diet has a lot to do with your skin. Loading your diet with fresh fruits and vegetables along with other plant-based foods can do a lot to give you a glowing complexion. But sometimes it can be difficult to fit in enough fresh fruits and vegetables. But one of the simplest ways to add fruits and vegetables to your diet is with smoothies and fresh juices. This is one of my favorite healthy green smoothie recipes for great skin.
