Radiant complexion with parsley, the best detox for your skin.

Do you miss your radiant complexion and your youthful glamorous charm? Are you opening another cream and seeing your reflection? Another serum, another mask, visiting the beautician and nothing !!!
At one point I lost hope that one day my skin would look radiant until finally my mother’s friend – Mrs. Tusia – instructed me to drink a smoothie with parsley. At first, the thought of consuming green leaves made me feel sick. Since childhood, I did not love parsley. So far that I remember I did not move the Sunday broth until I picked out all the floating leaves of it.
The recipe is simple:
Half a bunch of parsley, kiwi, lemon and half a glass of water.
Of course, these proportions can be changed according to your taste preferences.
We’re ready to go!
After a month of regular consumption, you will see a difference. Why is it working?
This smoothie is a real vitamin C bomb! which strengthens, cleanses the body, improves complexion and humor!
Parsley helps to purify our body by its essential oils, whose main ingredient is apiol and myristicin. Both substances have strong disinfection and diuretic properties. Parsley improves digestion, relieves fermentation in the intestines while detoxifying the body. In addition, it relieves neuralgia and helps in the treatment of urolithiasis.
Nutritional values speak for themselves – 100g of iron is 5 mg of iron and 177 mg of vitamin C (more than citrus !!!). It has a great effect on eyesight and complexion because it has as much as 5510 μg of beta-carotene and 3.1 mg of vitamin E. Parsley also has folic acid (170 μg) and mineral salts: magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, copper and manganese. Choking of the leaves is recommended for smokers because it immediately improves bad breath.
I recommend it, really worth it!

I love teaching dance! It’s so amazing to see students develop in both dance itself and self-confidence, seeing students excel at what they never thought they’d be able to do and being part of that happiness it very fulfilling. I love my students, we have so much fun and laugh a lot during classes, everyone is really supportive of each other and there is always a very positive energy.

How to stay healthy and positive. Kate Milligan from Hong Kong shares her golden tips.

  • I lived in Hong Kong until I was 18 years old and had an extremely multicultural upbringing. I attended schools that were part of the English Schools Foundation (ESF), which meant that I received a British education while being exposed to Asian cultures and traditions on a regular basis. At 18 years old, I moved to the UK and completed both my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at British universities before starting work in the marketing department at a software technology company. I love to try different exercises and food, and really enjoy exploring new places!
  • What is the most common health ingredient used in your country
    • Fresh ginger is commonly used when cooking in Hong Kong. It has so many nutritional benefits and really brings out the flavor in lots of dishes.
  • What is an easy way to stay healthy and positive?
    • Everything in moderation – it is OK to have a sweet treat on occasion but exercise and a balanced diet will keep you healthy and positive. Tai Chi is a common form of exercise in Hong Kong and helps you focus on deep breathing and relaxation with slow gentle movements. Hong Kong dishes also rarely have really “starchy” foods like potatoes and pasta; normally, rice is used, or rice noodles in Asian cooking.
  • What always puts a big smile on your face
    • My friends and family – I always try to spend a lot of time with them. The family is a very important part of Asian culture and you always have to attend family meals or outings. Taking care of your older relatives is also expected of you.
  • Your most powerful quote/ what keeps you motivated
