Mango smoothie

Take one ripe mango, peel and chop. Add two dessert spoons of natural live bio yogurt. Add one teaspoon of natural unrefined caster sugar. Blend altogether. Add enough apple juice to achieve the right drinking consistency. Enjoy!

Why it works: mango is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. It contains a generous supply of antioxidants including masses of Vitamin C as well as Vit A and skin-friendly Vit E, all of which can help to prevent disease and ageing. Another constituent, a triterpene called lupeol, has been shown to inhibit skin cancer.

Yogurt, like mango, is rich in AHAs which are great at helping skin cells to renew themselves. A daily dose of live bio yogurt will also help to keep your insides healthy, which in turn will help your skin to glow. And the apple juice will deliver some more health-boosting anti-oxidants.
