Mom once said “beauty starts skin deep,” and chances are you didn’t believe her back then, but in this age of beauty shortcuts, hopefully you believe those words of wisdom now. Now that your relaxing summer vacation has left you bloated, cramping and plain-out exhausted, sip your way back to gorgeous with these beautifying drinks, recipes and tips you won’t want to skip out on. Bottoms up!
You may already have heard of this super food but if you haven’t, chia seeds should be on the top of that grocery list. Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and B-complex vitamins, chia seeds give your skin an instant glow while taming even the worst of skin inflammations and breakouts. You can DIY a chia drink, like this Pomegranate Lime Chia Fresca by Oh My Veggies, or you can sip it up the simply way with Drink Chia ($35.95/12 on shophwc.com), a 40 calorie energy drink alternative in juicy flavors like Honeysuckle Pear and Strawberry Citrus. Just shake it up baby!
