Although I don't reach for smoothies very often anymore—I prefer warm tonics—I still have some go-to recipes that my body seems to crave from time to time. This beautifying smoothie is one that I often whip up when I not only want a satisfying snack but also want to give my skin a boost of dewy glow. It's packed with ingredients, such as aloe vera + cucumber, that hydrate you from the inside out. The coconut water also provides trace minerals and most importantly potassium to maintain internal fluid + electrolyte balance. This is a beauty tonic that will leave you feeling beautiful, limber, + energised . . .
