They are not only famous for their vitamin C content - their nutrients can detoxify, repair and renew your skin from the inside out.

Ginger

Antioxidants like ginger help to turn back the clock and provide you with a more youthful looking skin!  

Cucumber

This low-cal veggie contains not only one, but two potent antioxidants to fight cell damaging free radicals: vitamin C and caffeic acid.


This beauty drink is light and delicate - and you will need only 15 minutes to prepare it.

 

Ingredients:

3/4 cup sugar

1 piece of ginger

1 cup of lemon juice

1/2 seedless cucumber

Some mint leaves for decoration

 

Directions:

Combine thinly sliced ginger and the sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat and simmer for a couple of minutes until the sugar dissolves. Let cool completely and remove the ginger from the syrup.

In a pitcher, mix 4 cups of cold water, the lemon juice and the ginger syrup. Taste the lemonade and add some more water if it is too tart.

Finally slice the cucumber thinly, combine with the lemonade, add ice and decorate with the mint leaves.

Enjoy!
