Olivia Jenkins’ Clear Skin Recipe: Rice Paper Rolls
Those of you who have had acne issue at least once in their life time know very well how annoying it can be. Acne is not just an aesthetic issue, it doesn’t affect only your self-esteem. It’s painful and unpleasant and it can cause other complications like
scarring and spots that are quite heard to heal in the long run. Does that mean acne is a verdict? Not at all! Ask Olivia.
Acne prone skin needs 2 things: gentle skincare product and a good, balanced diet. We can help with the first, but for the second part we’d love to refer to the specialist. Today we’ll share one very fresh and delicious recipe provided by the founder of the Clear Skin Project Olivia Jenkins that will take you one step closer to the acne-free skin.
Olivia started her Clear Skin journey after battling with severe
acne for 5 years. Since seeing numerous doctors, changing antibiotics several and expensive creams didn’t work for her she decided it’s time to start making some day-to-day changes in her lifestyle. She turned to nature, because deep inside she knew that the holistic approach is the key. She knew that the changes come from withing, that you if heal your body from the inside it will show on the outside. And she was right.
Well, let’s see the recipe (I know some of you are already hungry).

a clean surface and place 2 prawn halves, a small handful of noodles, mint
coriander, sliced avocado, carrot and lettuce across the centre. Leaving around
5cm uncovered on each side.
