Every minute, every second, our body is oxidising. Certain factors accelerate this process, including the sun, smoking, a rich diet and little treats. You have it: all the good stuff. Not to mention the stress! Do you rrecognize yourself in one (or worse yet – several) of these words? Then this easy-to-make and delicious treat is just what you need.
Free radicals are the main causes of skin ageing. The same way they make cars go rusty and turn fruits brown, they are also responsible for four out of five wrinkles. However there’re things that can help you fight them, like Grape Polyphenols and Vitamin C, which are known as the most powerful anti-oxidants of the plant world.
While there’re plenty of ways in which you can get some of this goodness in your body (including eating fresh fruits and using skincare products featuring these ingredients), a simple juice with grapes and lemon, created by a detox brand especially for Caudalie (the company behind stabilised Polyphenol patent) just might be the most delicious one.
To make 200ml of juice you’ll need:
- 1 small bunch organic grapes (140 g)
- 1/2 organic apple (70 g)
- 1/4 of a lemon, peel removed (35g)
- 1 teaspoon green tea
Carefully rinse the fruit and add them to a blender with the peel still on (except for the lemon, peel it first). Add the tea. Blend and enjoy!
On Caudalie’s website, you can take a test to find out how often you’re getting exposed to free radicals and read some other tips about slowing down oxidation processes in your body. My results are actually not that bad, as I’m trying to eat healthy, not to stress and avoid sun as much as possible. But there are of course plenty of space for improvement.
