You know what makes investing in a $10 juice a bit less wince-inducing? Knowing that the juice is actually doing something (anything!) for you aside from quenching your thirst, whether that’s getting your skin in tip-top shape from the inside out or helping you to recover post-workout. Because you can reach for a much less expensive LaCroix to simply hydrate, right? Right.
And this need for function is where aesthetician turned juicer Erika Ianoale’s juices, slung under the name Satya Juice (formerly Pangaea), deliver. Many of them are designed by the skin pro, who worked her magic on people’s pores at Rittenhouse’s Rescue Spa for 10 years, to make your skin look as no-filter-necessary as possible. Think: the Beauty Tonic, a thicker concoction loaded with coconut, pineapple, turmeric and more. Then, there’s the Ageless green juice, packed with kale, cucumber, apple, lemon and ginger. Ianoale also lets customers customize their juices, adding goodies like cayenne, turmeric, matcha and more. Neat, right? (The simplest way to get your hands on the juices, which are BOMB, by the way, is to order online and they’ll deliver ’em to you.)
It’s not every day you find a juicer with a background in skin care, so to glean some knowledge from her (hey, that’s kind of our job), we asked the Philly skincare pro turned juice pro to tell us what some of her favorite smoothie and juice add-ins to get glowing skin are. First, a pro tip: She suggests always keeping fiber in your juices; she uses a hydraulic cold-pressing juice machine that allows her to do this, but the home juicer can also use a net or filter. Okay, now check out four smoothie and juice add-ins she says can make your drink work for your skin below, then head to the grocery store.
