The #1 detox for your skin also happens to be one of the easiest to prepare. Bringing a host of benefits to your body and a noticeable change to your skin requires just two ingredients: lemons and water!
Most of us already know that lemon water is refreshing, that drinking it in the morning is an ideal way to rehydrate and that it can be prepared warm or cool, depending on your preference and the season. But I'm spreading that word that lemon water offers a ton of other very significant benefits for the body.
Lemon juice detoxifies the liver, allowing for more efficient filtration of waste, and helps our digestive and elimination systems to run efficiently- resulting in a healthy body and complexion! While it tastes acidic to our tongues, lemon juice is actually an alkaline food to the body. So a daily glass of lemon water works wonders to balance all of the acidic foods many of us eat too much of (meat, dairy, sugar) and keep our body running at or near its optimal pH. Lemon juice is high in antioxidant vitamin C, another reason that it's excellent for the skin! I've found it to be a wonderful drink for those with acne-prone skin. It clears out phlegm made by the body as well. Drink it first thing in the morning to refresh and jump-start your body.
If you do just one good thing for your body and your skin today, squeeze an organic lemon into a glass of purified water, and drink in the benefits.
