SHANNON VAUGHN is a former model and the founder of one of our fave skincare innovations – so basically, we’ll follow any piece of beauty advice she gives. As the boss lady behind Pursoma, a line of clay detox baths so pure you could…well, bathe in them…she’s big on cleansing from the inside out to get a runway-worthy glow. We are dying over the combo of ingredients in her beautifying and anti-aging smoothie recipe, which include but are not limited to: turmeric, maca, coconut, and cinnamon! Dreamy…

I am a huge fan of turmeric smoothies. I especially love them withcoconut oil, which is rich in healthy fats and helps to build collagen and keep my complexion glowing. Turmeric is also anti-inflammatory, which helps with anti-aging. I love the following recipe. I freeze all the fruit when it’s ripe and this eliminates the need for ice.
