Introducing, the Marriage Saver Smoothie, whose powers go beyond human comprehension. Why? It’s a smoothie that tastes delicious in a glass AND on your face because its ingredients do the body AND skin good – inside and out.
I love multitasking.
Mangoes have been my FAVORITE fruit this summer, and for good reason.
They not only taste amazing, but they also boast antioxidant properties that protect us from cancer and various diseases; help lower cholesterol; and provide 25% of our daily recommended amount of Vitamin A, which is useful for improving eyesight among other things.Their Vitamin A is also an effective acne fighter, and their Vitamin C can help the skin self-repair and keep firm.
But the Vitamin E? That’s where the marriage saver part comes because it helps boost sex drive and has natural aphrodesiac qualities. WOWEE – Mangos are some cancer-fighting, skin-clearing, sex-boosting little powerhouses.
‘I’ll take 6 please…”
As for limes, they are EXCELLENT for the skin and body by not only helping prevent aging and brighten skin when applied topically, but also providing the body with tons of folate and calcium which promote women’s health.
Did you know strawberries contain alpha-hydroxy acid, which is beneficial for sloughing off dead skin? This alone makes them an effective component for a healthy complexion. Plus, they also help boost immunity and eyesight and even prevent certain cancers with their Vitamin C content. Sign, me, up.
Raw honey: How many ways do I love thee? Let me count the ways. You’re all natural, great for all skin types, promote healthy skin tone, act as a natural antibacterial agent to keep skin clean and clear, and even help prevent aging. Oh yeah, that’s why I love you so much.
(fyi: I actually use raw honey as face wash in the morning and LOVE how smooth and soft my skin is now. Instructions here.)
So you see? This smoothie doesn’t just taste delicious, it also beautifies your skin, protects your body and boosts your sex drive. Marriage saver indeed. Cheers!
