We love summer. The frolicking in the park, the ice cold lemonade and the caftan dresses – what could be better?

Unfortunately though, with the increase of heat comes the increase of dehydration of the skin. Fortunately, New York Times bestseller and celebrity nutritionist Kimberly Snyder has the perfect skin-pluming ice cold smoothie recipe to deal with skin dryness:

½ frozen Acai smoothie packet: loaded with antioxidants, fiber and Omega fatty acids that plump and nourish the skin

1 ½ cups of coconut water: full of electrolytes to hydrate and potassium, which facilitates cellular cleansing

½ cup of unsweetened almond milk: for a nice creamy texture

½ avocado: full of beauty minerals and fiber

1 tsp. coconut oil/butter: high content of Lauric Acid, to help burn stored body fat

Here’s to hydrated skin and a happy appetite!
