It's starting to get warm here in North Carolina so I've busted out one of my favorite juice recipes.
It's simple to make, delicious, refreshing, and helps combat acne for clear skin. Watermelon juice is great for your overall health, has a ton of nutrients and is one of the best juices for total body hydration. I drank 32 ounces while healing from a cold and it quickly knocked out a dehydration headache that I'd tried a ton of remedies for!
It is detoxifying, healing, hydrating and cleansing for the entire body. Watermelon juice even clears out pathogens from the gut, like h.pylori. It's full of vitamins like A, C, lycopene and beta-carotene. It also boosts the immune system, which helps clear acne from the entire body.
And no, it's not high in sugar, or a food that triggers acne. Quite the opposite. Natural sugars found in fruit are entirely different than processed ones. So different, that you can't even compare them. One sugar heals, the other causes illness.
Still worried about the sugar content in watermelon? Here's some facts. Watermelon has half the sugar of one apple. Also, the natural sugar in watermelon leaves the stomach within 1 minute. Boom.
To make watermelon juice, just cut off the rind, cut into chunks and run through whatever juicer you have. I've had this tried and true Omega juicer for over 10 years, but my new favorite, is my Nama J2.
You can even leave the seeds in while you juice. So go try some acne-fighting, refreshing watermelon juice today!
Don't have a juicer? No problem, just eat a big bowl of cut up watermelon and you'll still receive the benefits.
