When juicing gives you pulp, make a face scrub! Carrot, apple, lemon juice is an all-star when it comes to bright, beautiful skin! Get the 1-2 punch of not just drinking all those bright beauty boosting-nutrients but use them in your skincare routine to work from the outside in.

How is Carrot-Apple-Lemon a 1-2 punch? 

Carrots contain carotenoids, a bright orange colored phytonutrient, which has been shown to boost the red and yellow tones in our skin to give a glowing appearance without the harmful UV rays of a tan. These phytonutrients are also big players when applied to the exterior of our skin when used as gentle scrub.

Lemons and apples help to gently exfoliate your skin’s surface removing dull and dry skin. Lemons contain citric acid which helps to stimulate exfoliation while the gentle soluble fiber from the apple pulp physically remove buildup.

Gentle enough to use on your face and body, this juice and scrub combo is a great addition to your beauty routine!
