Jillian Harris' skin smoothie

With crazy hot and cold weather, my skin has been back and and forth from dry to normal. So I have been able to combat that with a few products and a fabulous smoothie. I saw on Jillian Harris' Twitter page the other day a recipe for a smoothie that rejuvenates skin, based off of a smoothie she gets at the juice bar from Whole Foods. Her instructions were to drink the smoothie for three days straight and see how your complexion looks. I did that...except I saw results in two! So I cannot take credit for this fabulous drink, but I will share with you the recipe. Please thank the lovely Jillian Harris for the goodness. Her recipe is up on her Facebook page. Aside from being a masterful concoction-brewing cook (as evidenced by her recipes she shares via Twitter, Facebook and her website), you might know her as the Bachelorette two seasons ago. She has a beautiful aesthetic and is one of my design inspirations. Take a look at her portfolio on her website. She makes design look so easy and cohesive. She now is one of the designers behind Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. You would do good to check her out! You won't be sorry.

Jillian Harris' Complexion Smoothie:
1 cup of berries (I have only ever used blackberries and blueberries and I get them fresh)
1 1/4 cups of Bolthouse carrot juice
1 banana, sliced
Pinch of frozen spinach (it acts as the ice cube when frozen, I break off a tiny chunk)

Blend together on high in a blender and enjoy!

Other skin must-haves that I love lately are: grapeseed oil to use as a moisturizer at night. A little goes a long way too! Aquaphor is also great for a lip ointment at night as well. I'm currently looking for a good new scrub, but Biore's line is smooth and exfoliating at the same time.
