Beauty Comes From The Inside
We hear about new fad diets or health trends everyday and honestly, it can get confusing and a tad frustrating! Over the years I have experimented with and adopted a number of them, some worked, some didn’t. One that did was lemon with warm water.
Everyday, upon waking, I drink half a litre of water to hydrate my mind and body, followed by a glass of lukewarm water with juice of half a lemon. After only a few weeks I experienced the following benefits:
1. Better digestion- I no longer had a problem with unsightly bloat in fitted tops and dresses.
2.Clearer and glowing skin- This was most evident as I received many compliments for my glowing skin.
3.Less allergies/colds- Lemon has a good shot of Vitamin C and having it everyday really spikes immunity.
4.Reduced appetite- For me, having lemon water really helped me with eating a healthy eating choices as you don’t want to ruin a healthy start to the day.
5.Extra energy- This may be psychological but I feel pumped for a workout after I have this concoction.
The only negative I can think of is that lemon can wear-out your enamel if you already have weak teeth, so I try and drink it as fast as I can or with a straw rather than sip on it slowly.
I honestly believe that beauty is 10% genetics, 30% grooming and 60% nutrition & exercise; the genes you inherit are not in your control but the rest is. So make sure you are aware of what you are putting in your body. Clear eyes, glowing skin, luscious hair and a cheerful personality is a result of factors in your control! I’ll be doing a lot more posts to help you control that 90% so do comment below for anything you want covered in particular.
