Are you obsessed with clear and glowing skin and willing to try every product and treatment under the sun that promises to give you that? But, wait, before you go ahead and break the bank, have you considered taking an inside out approach? Um, is that a “no” we hear?
Apart from religiously following a skincare routine, it is equally important to drink enough fluids and consume superfoods to get the glow of your dreams! We know drinking plain water all day can get a little boring, therefore, we’ve got you a daily drink menu to follow. This will ensure you drink enough water and consume all the required superfoods for your best skin yet.
- Morning: Green juice + Soy milk latte
- Afternoon: 2 cups of green tea

Morning: Green juice + Soy milk latte
Kale leaves contain vitamin A which helps promotes cell growth and healthy cell turnover. It also contains vitamin C that accelerates skin repair, giving you a healthy glow. You can blend a bunch of kale leaves with the juice of one lemon, an inch of ginger and one large cucumber. Drinking this juice every morning will change your skin game forever.
Wait, we know you can’t function without your morning cup of coffee, but did you know dairy can stimulate acne in some people? Simply replace your regular milk with soy milk and enjoy your coffee minus the skin woes.
Afternoon: 2 cups of green tea
Post lunch, have a cup of green tea and another one at 4 pm. Packed with antioxidants, green tea protects the skin from the harmful rays of the sun by decreasing the chances of sunburn. Apart from flushing out toxins from the body, it also decreases skin inflammation and redness.
Evening: A glass of pomegranate juice
Pomegranate juice contains twice as many antioxidants and polyphenols as green tea, making it a superfood. It nurtures fibroblasts in the skin which are responsible for producing collagen. This means fewer wrinkles and fine lines. With regular consumption, it will also help even out your skin tone.
Night: Cucumber-infused water
Packed with minerals, potassium and magnesium, cucumbers help hydrate the skin and maintain a healthy pH balance. Drinking a glass of cucumber-infused water at night ensures long-lasting hydration and happy skin in the morning.
Throughout the day: 8 glasses of water
Other than the beverages mentioned above, you must also consume 8 glasses of water each day to maintain skin elasticity. The road to healthy, plump and fresh skin is… you guessed it, water.
