Tata Harper Skincare x Tomgirl: Get Glossy Skin

We recently met up with Gabrielle Kammerer, creator of Tomgirl Juice Co. to discuss her favorite ingredients and recipes for hydration. We loved her recipes so much that we asked her to share some more recipes to promote glossy, glowing skin. 

You are glowing. This very moment! Your body and every living creature is capable of producing and storing radiant light-emitting biophotons that are connected in large measure to the fresh foods and juice you choose to consume. The greater the vitality of one’s skin care and diet, the greater the glow of the person who thoughtfully applies these rituals. Naturally grown organic sun-ripened fruits and vegetables are able to store immense quantities of radiant light energy that readily contribute to a person’s health, wellness, and a budding inner glow.

At Tomgirl we create and encourage a nutritious diet of fresh fruits and vegetables for breakfast, lunch and dinner. My favorite daily treats this summer are Arugula, Fresh Basil, Crispy Cucumbers and melons! I especially love to make my own nutrient rich salad dressing for this bright time of year to help me enjoy all my vegetables even more.
