Mind Body & Soul - Benefits Of Lemon Water

Hi Loves,

My posts have been a little random as of lately, still consistent but my days are a little mixed up! I have been super busy and apologize once again!

Today i want to talk to you about Lemon Water. Im sure alot of people are familiar with this and if your not im going to give you a little rundown! By now every beauty,fashion,lifestyle blogger is aware that the best beauty tips are the natural/organic ones! I swear by anything natural. It always seems to work miracles and this is something i have done for a long time! 

Lemon is a god-sent for beautiful skin. All you have to do is squeeze a little bit of lemon into a warm cup of water every morning a drink it. I do this before i have breakfast because after some research i found it is much better to have before you have anything to eat or drink!  

For the best benefits squeeze half a lemon into a full cup of water.

Now shall i fill you in on the benefits? I think so! 

1. Balances PH- Drinking lemon water everyday will reduce the acidity in your body. 

2. Weight Loss - You will find drinking this helps your bodies dehydration. It helps fight hunger cravings.

3. Lemon helps to purge toxins from your body, which make your skin clearer. I found after about a fortnight of doing this i woke up with a clearer complexion.

4. Helps eliminate bad breathe!

5. Taking this first thing in the morning will give you a great energy boost!

6. Boots your immune system. Lemons are high in vitamin C and potassium. 

7. Helps in curing a throat infection and coughs (This one works without a doubt)

8. Keeps you ZEN - This is my favorite because i tend to wake up or go to sleep with very bad anxiety and its been proven Vitamin C are one of the first things depleted when your mind and body are under stress!

9. Lemon can reduce the excess of oiliness of the skin

10. Lemon water is very effective to reduce acne. Even try dipping a small cotton bud in freshly squeezed lemon to help reduce appearance.

This is just a little post to inform you of the benefits of lemon. As you can tell from all my previous posts i love love LOVE giving my readers tips and tricks of natural and organic things because they work better and they save you a hell of money. Doesn't mean you cant go and buy that face cream you have been eyeing. I still love buying all those products but i do see the difference with drinking this every morning, i tend to wake up with a little glow. 

The benefits are also very similar to coconut oil. My problem is i can NOT drink coconut oil.
Forget about it. I can eat a tea-spoon. I can oil pull but as for drinking it with water. I simply cannot do it!

Does anyone else drink lemon water? Anymore tips or tricks? What has this helped for you?

  1. Hehe love it! I have had a thing for boiling water and lemon recently. Plus i add a tablespoon of coconut oil to my morning coffee. It doesnt change the taste, just seperates a little

    1. Oh coconut oil in coffee? I didnt even think of that! Im going to try it tomorrow and let you know how i go! But what do you mean separates? Cause im picturing something not right lol Love the lemon water always the best secret. Apparently it is what Kourtney Kardashian uses for her skin!

  2. I had no idea how many benefits there were to drinking lemon water, definitely will bear this in mind!
    Lovely post :)
