Reese Witherspoon is renowned for her youthful appearance and the star has the most amazing skin. And what's more, the Little Fires Everywhere actress has now revealed the secret behind her flawless complexion – and it involves a green juice! Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, the Legally Blonde star posted a video of herself chopping up healthy ingredients into a blender, before blitzing them up into a smoothie. Reese revealed that she had been inspired to make the drink a few years ago after an encounter with her Little Fires Everywhere co-star Kerry Washington, who told her that her skin had improved after she started adding the healthy juice into her daily diet.

Recalling her encounter with Kerry, Reese said in the footage: "I just remembered that the first person who told me about this recipe was Kerry Washington. I sat next to her at an award show and I didn't really know her. And I said to her: 'Your skin is so beautiful, what do you do?' And she said: 'I think it's from this drink that I drink. It's really changed my skin and it makes my hair and nails really strong.' So I was in. Thank you Kerry for sharing the recipe!"

Reese also gave suggestions for adding different flavours to the drink, including almond butter and celery. The star said in the footage: "I have this instead of breakfast and I have it around 10am or 11am in the morning, and then I am not hungry at all until around 1pm."
