If you haven’t tried Moon Juice’s Beauty Dusts yet, it’s time. They’re heavenly… and they produce collagen — just by DRINKING THEM. Are you kidding? No, I’m not. Here’s the how and why:
“Moon Juice Beauty Dust is a blend of powdered tonic herbs based on an ancient empiric formula that expands beauty through calming the nerves, increasing collagen and silica production, toning and firming tissue, and both hydrating and fortifying skin, hair, nails and cell membranes from the inside out,” explain the Moon Juice powers-that-be. “Active beautifying ingredients in the dust are Schisandra Berry, which tonifies and heals all organs. It’s legendary for increasing sexual function and bringing suppleness to the skin and shine to hair. And Pearl, which has been used for centuries as a beautifying antioxidant and potent source of enzymes, biocompatible minerals and amino acids. This adaptogen delivers dozens of essential trace minerals into the bloodstream for bone and cell building, longevity, joy and overall glow.”
So, yeah, a cup of Beauty Dust every morning will chill the aging process and leave you with gorgeous, glowing skin. Who’s in?

This is a warm cup of luscious antioxidant, enzyme, amino, and mineral richness. This ancient beauty potion delivers deep nourishment into the bloodstream for bone and cell building and tissue regeneration, reversing the effects of aging and inflammation.

12 ounces Lait de Coco* (see below for recipe)
1 teaspoon rose water
2 teaspoons lucuma powder
¼ teaspoon pearl powder
½ teaspoon ground schisandra berries
1 teaspoon raw honey or coconut sap, or 1 drop of stevia for a low-glycemic version
1 teaspoon ghee or coconut oil
1 tablespoon tocotrienols
Gently warm the Lait de Coco in a saucepan over low heat, without allowing it to simmer. Carefully pour it into a blender. Add the rose water, lucuma, pearl, schisandra, sweetener, and oil. Blend on high for 20 seconds or until warm and frothy. Pour into a mug and serve topped with the tocotrienols.
*Lait de Coco
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
¼ cup young Thai coconut meat (one 5×2-inch strip), fresh or frozen
4 cups water
Pinch pink salt
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, about 45 seconds. This milk will have a nice “cream on top” when cold, so shake and stir to evenly distribute.
