Great tips from Vaileria. I had a lot of carrot juice quite a few years ago and I was certainly “glowing” then! People often remarked on my orange skin. It did disappear when I cut back on the juices. I have put all those ingredients in juices or smoothies but I have never tried putting them on my face. I like the sound of the strawberry, honey and yogurt mask. I’ll give it a try this weekend. I think it’s best to buy organic strawberries as conventional ones are heavily sprayed with pesticides.

Beetroots is my second name! I’m Russian for a reason. But I let go of spinach habit for some reason. Oh I know why. We planted spinach this year and it all shriveled and died. So in my mind I keep thinking, we should be eating our own spinach…
