Grind 3-4 vegetables, including red veggies, and get a perfect juice that will give your skin a glow. In order to have this vegetable juice, make it go through your conventional blender. Have it with fiber and don’t forget to add in some fat like some seeds, or coconut oil which will help you absorb your water soluble vitamins, to give you that extra glow.
TIP 2: Include fruits in your diet
Make sure you have enough fruits in your diet. Having one or two fruits a day with all different varieties gives you that extra glow that you require for your wedding. If you do not like to eat them, mash them on your face. Remember the papaya mask that your mother was putting on. That is another excellent way to get your skin glowing.
