BEAUTY JUICE: COOLING JUICE FOR HOT SUMMER

If you are into natural way of taking care of you skin, then you have probably heard of traditional medicine that talks about the balance of ying and yang.  This applies even to the skin health.  If you are 'overheated' with food such as red meat and fried food, then it is recommended to drink or eat vegetables to balance the 'qi' out.

If you still do not do anything about it, then you are probably going to have sudden flare up of skin issues such as acne or pimples.

Personally, I hate eating cucumber because I can never like the smell not matter how hard I tried.  I know there are so much benefits from eating cucumber but well I just 'hate it'.  So, I will just make juice out of it.

This is a vegetables juice to cool down your body especially on hot day or in a summer.



BEAUTY JUICE: COOLING JUICE ,CUCUMBER AND CHINESE TURNIP

Ingredients (for 2 person)
1 big Jicama turnip(chinese turnip) (peeled the skin and cut)
1 Cucumber (I used the Japanese cucumber because it is sweet and not bitter) (I just washed the skin and cut it in half)


The reason that you can get such beautiful colour is I pressed the juice from the chinese turnip first. Then followed by the cucumber. Lastly, top it up with chinese turnip.  After you mix it, it will be light green.  The juice will look cool XP.

If you like cucumber, then you will enjoy the smell and the taste.  It is lightly sweet so it doesn't taste bad.  In fact, it is actually nice.  There is no need to add in any sugar or whatever sweetener.

The only thing is it has strong fresh cucumber smell.  It is just in my genes (I am the only one in my family that hates it).

Please don't tell me to keep forcing myself to eat cucumber everyday T_T  .  I had been doing it for the past 10 years but still hate it.  I wonder when my taste buds are going to change for the better and be in love with cucumber? XD

Beautiful colour right?

Another tips for drinking juice.   Drink the juice one to two hours before bed.  There is no need to eat heavy supper.  However, do drink a cup of vegetables or fruit juice which can assist your stomach and help your body.

*word of advice-do not give this juice to your children at night or they will either pee in the bed or run to the toilet in the middle of the night.

I have no time in the morning because I always in rush or am way to lazy.  Moreover, I prefer coffee or tea in the morning.  So fruit juice and vegetables juice is for my supper. XP
