Facialist Joanna Vargas Shares Her All-Natural Beauty Elixirs

joanna vargas skincare!

According to facialist Joanna Vargas, a green juice a day will keep dull, dehydrated skin away. And seeing as her Triple Crown treatment is a must for NYC’s well-heeled, beauty-obsessed set; she invented the world’s first antiaging LED therapy bed; and her just-launched namesake line of products is already making waves, we’ll take her word for it.

We’ll also take her daily serum (one of the mainstays in her tightly edited, at-home collection that includes a vitamin C wash, enzyme mask, and rejuvenating serum), which is inspired by the veggie beverage that maintains healthy, dewy, radiant skin — one she, herself, swears by and shares with all her clients.

Give us a glass of that along with her other beauty elixirs she’s shared below. Make them at home with a juicer.

Super Eight
Loaded with chlorophyll, enzymes, minerals, vitamins, and amino acids, the veggies-only juice is a serious feast.

1 handful parsley
