I am hands down a die-hard raw juice fan – I love how it makes me feel and what it does for my skin. I remember my good friend in Australia, Helen Dowsley, a Celebrity Hair and Make-up Artist, who I worked with for many years, telling me that one of her top tips for amazing skin was to drink a veggie juice everyday – and I haven’t looked back since.

Although a green or ruby red beverage might not look all that appetizing, it actually is quite tasty – here are two recipes that I like to drink in the morning – you literally just throw them all in a juicer (not a blender – it’s different!) – but note, there are no exact recipes to raw jucing, the best thing to do is play around with different quantities and veggies with different benefits. Beetroot, for example, contains potassium, magnesium, iron and vitamins A, B6, C and folic acid. Read about what all of this does for your body here. 

Served with a lot of ice, it’s really refreshing and amazing for your health and skin –

The Green Glow – half or one green apple (depends on how sweet you want it), 3-4 dark green leafy veg e.g. spinach or kale, 2 celery sticks (with the leaves), a handful of mint and about 3/4 of lemon (no rind).

The Big Red - 2-3 baby beetroots, 2 large carrots, either half a red apple or an orange (no rind) and a bit of ginger.

You can pick up some great bargains on your veg packs, at any Food Lovers. If you’re not into blending then you can cheat and buy bottles of cold pressed juices. Some companies like Skinny Juice Co in CT do actual 5 -7 day juice cleanse packs for a full juice detox (that’s no eating, just juicing!). I haven’t found any yet in Durban, but I will. Hit me up if you know of any – I’m addicted x
