Detox Smoothie for Clear Skin
We all want that glowing, healthy, vibrant skin! A big part of making this a reality in your life is being mindful of what you are putting into your body. I believe our skin speaks the imbalances that are happening inside our bodies.
Did you know that having acne in your forehead/nose (T-zone) this can indicate a possible toxin and a sluggish liver? Breakouts on your cheeks can indicate allergies. And lastly, breakouts on your chin, chest, and back can indicate toxicity in your colon.
It is important to be in tune with how your unique body is speaking to you. It can’t tell you in words what it needs so it speaks in symptoms. If you listen to these symptoms and give your body what it needs, it will start to thrive in a whole new way. Therefore, if you are lacking certain nutrients that are leading to breakouts, then this detox smoothie is a great way to get clear, glowing skin.
Fruit Smoothie Ingredients and Benefits for Glowing Skin
Before we move onto this health recipe for a beauty drink, let us first talk about each of the ingredients used to make a glowing skin smoothie. We’ll also discuss how each one of these foods will support that beautiful skin of yours. These are the ingredients I used to make this wonderful detox fruit smoothie for clear skin along with their benefits:
- Pomegranates: Pomegranates are rich in vitamin C, a nutrient quite important for skin health. They are also packed with antioxidants like proanthocyanidins and flavonoids that work great for the skin by delaying the signs of aging (like wrinkles). It also has been known for its anti-aging effects making it ideal for a glowing skin smoothie recipe.
- Carrots: Aside from keeping your eyes healthy, carrots can also contribute to a healthy complexion. This is because vitamin A helps repair skin tissue and protects against the sun’s harsh rays. Carrots are also high in beta-carotene in addition to vitamin A, and also contains nutritious minerals and antioxidants. Discover more of the health benefits of carrots here.
- Raspberries: Raspberries have 40% more antioxidant content than blueberries and strawberries. These antioxidants work great for your skin. First off, they prevent the damaging effects of the sun. Which also means they prevent redness if your skin is sensitive. The presence of vitamin C in raspberries makes them an ideal food to assist in the prevention of skin cancer.
- Blood Oranges: Blood oranges are also superstars in this fruit smoothie recipe because of their high content of fruit acid. If you haven’t already been acquainted with fruit acids, now is a good time to get to know each other. Fruit acids are your friend. Blood oranges contain citric acid, a member of the alpha hydroxyl acid family. These acids are potent exfoliators: they penetrate skin and dissolve the dead skin cells that sit on your skin’s uppermost surface making them ideal for any detox smoothie where clear skin is the goal.
- Water: Your skin has a natural barrier that retains moisture, and if this barrier’s functions are disrupted, your skin may become dry and sensitive. When you neglect hydration, your skin can’t perform at its best, leading to premature aging and dry, sensitive skin. Another big benefit to drinking water is its ability to flush your system of toxins. This flushing keeps your skin clean, pushing out bacteria and reducing the risk of acne and other skin problems. So, it’s a simple yet effective way to get clear, beautiful skin.
Isn’t it amazing how simple ingredients from mother earth are so powerful at assisting our bodies to thrive in a whole new way? The more we get back to eating whole clean ingredients, the better our bodies will thrive, look and feel!

Clear Glowing Skin Smoothie Substitutions
As with most recipes, sometimes we like to mix things up based on our personal taste preferences or nutritional needs. Therefore, you may make the following substitutions to this clear skin smoothie to make your skin glow:
- If you prefer not to use water to make this healthy beauty drink, you may substitute the water with coconut water or unsweetened coconut milk. Alternately, you may also use almond milk or another plant based nut milk to add extra protein.
- I like to mix in Unflavored Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Powder with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C to make this smoothie extra beneficial for skin and hair. It’s an easy way to increase both your collagen protein intake for healthy, glowing skin as it contains 18 grams of protein and 20 grams of collagen. However, this addition cannot be used to make a vegan smoothie as it does contain bovine. If you prefer a plant based option, you may add Unflavored Amazing Grass GLOW Vegan Collagen Support to your fruit smoothies. This product contains 15 grams of plant based protein per serving along with biotin to support collagen production.
- Should you not like one of the fruits used to create this smoothie for glowing skin, you may substitute that fruit with either strawberries or blueberries.
- To add more fiber to this beauty drink recipe, try mixing chia seeds into this detox smoothie for clear skin. Not only are chia seeds high in fiber, but this superfood is also rich in antioxidants that support skin health as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.
Tips for Making Healthy Detox Fruit Smoothies for Skin
Making smoothies for beautiful, clear skin doesn’t have to be hard! In fact, it’s fairly simply to create the perfect glowing skin smoothie recipe. However, here are some tips that you may find helpful:
- For extra cold smoothies, that are more semi-solid than liquid, I recommend that you use at least 50% frozen fruit to make this healthy beauty drink. If you aren’t using frozen fruit, you can pop the fresh fruit in the freezer overnight before making this detox smoothie the next day. Alternately, you can also substitute half the water called for in the recipe with ice.
- This clear skin smoothie is naturally sweet due to the sugar found in the fruit. Therefore, you do not need to add additional sweeteners to this fruit drink. If you have a sweet tooth and prefer a sweeter tasting smoothie, you may add a Tablespoon of raw honey or date sugar to the recipe.
- When making smoothies for glowing skin and hair, consider adding a teaspoon of spirulina powder. This blue-green algae makes another wonderful addition to healthy smoothie recipes due to its nutritional content. A major source of protein, spirulina contains 65% amino acids, including the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) as well as essential vitamins and minerals that are necessary for healthy skin and hair.
- As with other fruit smoothies, this detox smoothie for clear is best served while still cold. If you have leftovers, you may store this mixture in the refrigerator overnight to enjoy the next day.
- 1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries
- 1 cup frozen pomegranate seeds
- 1 cup carrots, chopped
- 1 whole blood orange peeled
- 1 1/2 cups water
- Put all ingredients into a high-powered blender, such as a Vitamix.
- Mix the ingredients on high until the pomegranate and raspberry seeds have been thoroughly broken down.
- Serve this fruit smoothie in a glass with a stainless steel or glass straw.
For the highest quality detox smoothie for clear, glowing skin, I recommend that use organic fruit in this recipe along with filtered water.
