Dandelion Greens for Glowing Skin

Dandelion Kale Acne Fighter

Dandelion has been used since ancient times to achieve a natural glow. It’s official name is “Taraxacum Officinale” which means official remedy for disorders, a well fitting name for a very powerful plant. Dandelion juice is a good detoxifier, diuretic, stimulant, and anti-oxidant. These four properties make it a great treatment for acne. Dandelion root and leaves are very powerful diuretics, meaning they stimulate urinary function and rid the body of excess fluid. This also makes it great for PMS and water weight gain. What makes Dandelion an awesome acne-fighter is that it is a blood purifier and protects, nourishes, and detoxifies the liver which the body uses to get rid of toxins, including those that are causing your blemishes! Dandelion juice can also help regulate proper secretion of hormones, increase sweating and widen up pores to facilitate removal of toxins through sweating. Dandelion greens contain a great deal of awesome nutrients including Vitamins A, B2, C, D, and minerals like potassium, calcium, sodium, phosphorous, iron. It is also natures richest green vegetable source of beta-cartone. Adding this juice and variations of green juices with dandelion with give your skin a major boost and also helps with conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Beyond improving the quality of your skin, dandelion also can assist in weight reduction, relieve constipation, prevent and lower high blood pressure, prevent or even cure anemia, lower your cholesterol, and help control diabetes. When you juice dandelion greens, they have a bitter taste, and they are also very powerful so you don’t want to juice too much in one sitting. A small handful or less is a good rule of thumb. When combined with other veggies and maybe an apple to sweeten, you can easily mask the bitter taste and still get the beauty boosting benefits. -XoXo Raw Girl

    Widening pores doesn’t sound too good! Ahh! But i will try this! Any idea if it could help with skin texture and clogged pores and not just pimples?

    • Hey there, yes will help with skin texture but you need to do other things in tandem. What exactly are your texture/skin issues? My e-book The Acne Free Diet focuses on acne/pimples, but the tips within will help with almost any skin issue. -XoXo

    I tried dandelion greens a while back when I first began drinking green smoothies. They were too bitter for my taste at the time and I haven’t tried them again. Thanks for reminding me of the amazing health benefits! I think they’re definitely worth a 2nd try. I’ll pick some up this week and try them juiced. Thanks again!

      Hi Camille: Definitely try them juiced! I really do not like them in smoothies either, it is harder to handle the bitter taste. Happy Juicing! XoXo
