Skin food: Easy January mocktails

A mocktail is a non-alcoholic cocktail and is a delicious and healthy way to have a drink. For January, we chose our three favourite mocktails from Foodin, with ingredients like coconut water, apple, ginger and cucumber.

Coconut water contains natural electrolytes and is an excellent way to hydrate your body and skin. Apples are high in fibre and flavonoids, and good for your gut health, while ginger possesses anti-inflammatory properties. Cucumber may be beneficial for inflamed or irritated skin, and also provides hydration thanks to its high water content.
