Elizabeth’s Summer Smoothie for Radiant Skin 

Mindfulness is Key

Elizabeth's first morning routine (particularly on days when meetings start later) is to spend some time with herself doing her revitalising rituals and meditating.  

"I am a firm believer that even the most expensive creams will not benefit my skin and body unless I treat my mind with respect and patience." 

Mindfulness is key for good skincare

In the summer, she starts her day sipping on a smoothie full of incredible antioxidants that give her skin the boost of radiance to complement her skincare while reflecting on her day and saying a prayer of gratitude. 


  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup sliced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup mixed berries
  • 1/4 cup walnuts 
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed 
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • Ice cubes 


Blend all ingredients together. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Essential, yet oh-so crucial— a simple face wash should be the initial step in any summer skincare routine. Our skin is constantly exposed to environmental pollutants and stressors during the sunny days. This makes it even more important to cleanse your skin both in the morning and at night.

Cleansing your skin in the morning

"I find cleansing my face in the morning to be invigorating and vital. It not only removes any overnight buildup but also leaves me feeling refreshed and ready to embrace the summer day. Cleansing is the simplest and most straightforward step for me. It serves the sole purpose of purifying my skin for the nourishing actives that follow."

Empress Tip: If you have combination or mature skin, Elizabeth recommends her own personalized blend of castor oil, coconut oil, and pomegranate oil in a carrier oil.
She adores incorporating oils into her routine. It has soothing properties, especially at night during the summer months (don't worry, they don't clog pores!)!


Following a thorough cleanse that leaves your skin feeling soft and yearning for hydration. It's time for moisturization—essential for maintaining a healthy summer glow.

Elizabeth swears by the AM/PM Serum Set ; the Anti-Aging Face Serum in the morning and Luxe Night Elixir at night!

"These serums are an absolute game-changer for me, and everyone who uses it agrees. The AM one is a simple formulation of the highest quality Rosehip Seed Oil that I get from Chile, South America and Frankincense. It never overwhelms my skin.

It effortlessly restores my skin's radiance throughout the day. And I feel extremely confident not only in how my skin looks but also for my health. It’s safe for all individuals regardless of whether they are pregnant or menopausal!"

Elizabeth's Secret Tip: I adore reapplying the serum on my hands, neck, and face throughout the day—it's like an instant refresher for my skin under the summer sun!

Summer skincare routine: After-Sun Care 

Remember to hydrate and shield your body as well. Especially after extended sun exposure (such as a day spent at the beach) during the summer season! It's common to overlook body care in our routines, but safeguarding your skin from head to toe is equally crucial.

After returning from a long day, take a moment to apply a moisturizer or body oil specifically formulated for the body. This will not only help repair your skin from environmental stressors but also provide it with the nourishment it needs. 

In the evenings, consider trying Empress Naturals' Circulation Massage Oil. Its nurturing properties, combined with the restorative properties of lime and rosemary, make it the perfect choice to soothe your skin after sun-filled adventures.
