Beauty Detox: Skin-Brightening Summer Mocktail
I saw this on Beautylish today and I had to share it with you guys. It's yummy and healthy and there's nothing we like more than that here at Rock Me Fabulous.
Everyone loves BBQs, picnics, and long days spent on the beach, but indulging in sugary alcoholic drinks won’t keep you looking your summer best. So this season, why not make something that tastes delicious and does wonders for your skin, too?
Kimberly Snyder's recipe for watermelon slush smoothie combines just two ingredients for a delightful summer treat. "Watermelon has great cooling and hydrating properties, as well as amazing cleansing and detoxifying effects," says Kim. So not only will you be hydrating your body with one of nature's yummiest fruits, your skin will be getting a much needed moisturizing boost, which in turn leads to a brighter, clearer, and smoother complexion. Almonds are also one of the best nuts to eat, and contain plenty of vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids—good for skin plumping and cell regeneration.

Watermelon Slush Smoothie

  • 1 small watermelon
  • 2 ½ cups unsweetened almond milk
  • Mint sprigs
Cut the watermelon into small chunks and freeze overnight. When fully frozen, blend the icy watermelon pieces and the almond milk in a blender until smooth. Pour into a glass and garnish with a few sprigs of mint. Enjoy!
