Winter is here... and in Paris, the season is synonymous with cozy wool sweaters, morning warm porridge and comforting drinks. As you may know by now, I am passionate about food and it's impact on the skin, so I am always looking for nourishing ingredients for my morning potions and to add into my meals. I’m most excited about adaptogens, which are an unlimited source of benefits for our immune system and overall vitality. One of my favorites to use for glowing skin specifically is Sun Potion’s Pearl Powder - it’s rich in zinc and antioxidants, which are both treasures for our skin‘s health and appearance.
"Pearl powder is a source of minerals including calcium, zinc, iron, selenium and amino acids. It’s also rich in antioxidants and helps support the body's natural collagen production." - Sun Potion
I created this recipe to be able to sip on in the morning or at any time of the day without putting my metabolism in the process of digestion, but still giving it good nutrients to start the day. This recipe contains macadamia nuts, which are a great source of vitamins, minerals and fats. Because it contains monounsaturated fatty acids, also known as the "good fat," macadamia nuts may help prevent cardiovascular disease as well as Type 2 Diabetes. This drink also contains Acai powder, which is rich in antioxidants and may help to protect the skin from oxidative stress, as well as environmental factors that may accelerate skin aging. It’s high concentration of vitamins A, C and E also make it a popular choice to help dullness and boost skin radiance. Baobab powder is full of minerals, calcium, phosphorus, zinc and essential fatty acids that are needed for proper functioning of our body, and may contribute to the balance of skin and to the regeneration and protection of the epidermis.
