2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt

1 small handful of blueberries

1 large handful ice cubes

1 teaspoon of chia or flax seeds (optional)

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1 small frozen extra ripe banana

⅓ cup skimmed milk

This smoothie not only tastes great, but it will soothe your skin from within. Avocados are full of several antioxidants and vitamins that will give your skin a natural glow. Similarly, chocolate contains flavonols that protect us against sun damage and increase blood flow, improving the hydration of the skin.

1 small handful raspberries

1 large handful of spinach leaves

1 large handful lettuce

1 small handful of mint
