For Glowing Skin . . .
Celebrity esthetician Joanna Vargas works with celebrities such as Rachel Weisz, suggests eating vegetables of different colors for every meal, and adding a green juice to your daily routine. A great rule of thumb is, the darker or brighter the color of the vegetable, the more vitamins it packs.
