Beauty stems from the inside-out, and one of my favorite methods for resetting my body is juice detoxing (or cleansing).  After a juice cleanse, it leaves skin looking much smoother  and gives a beautiful glow that can’t be applied with makeup.  Therefore, I decided to try a 5-day juice cleanse to help remove any excess toxins from the body.  Although I’ve done cleanses before, a 5-day juice cleanse was a new experience and amazing to say the least.

A typical juice cleanse consists of drinking 5-6 8oz. glasses of raw juice per day, along with water and/or green tea without consuming any foods.  It seems to be trending on the west coast, with brands such as the BluePrint Cleanse, Pressed Juicery, and Jugo Fresh.  These companies will deliver juice directly to clients which is rather convenient.  For this experience, I juiced my own natural or organic fruits and vegetables because I own a Black and Decker juicer, which worked well for me.
