Beauty Secret Saturday

This week I talked to another one of my besties Daniela about what her beauty secret is...

Daniela is an amazing woman. She is an Ophthalmic Technician at UCLA Medical Center and also a Doula!! She has one of the biggest hearts of any one that I know and is absolutely gorgeous! I mean look at this face! :)

 So what is her secret? LEMON WATER IN THE MORNING!

Lemons health benefits have been known for centuries. The two biggest being its strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers and its digestive aid and liver cleanser which aids in weight loss. So what are the benefits of drinking a glass of lemon water in the morning? Here are just a few...

  • Energizes and enhances your mood - lemons give you a boost of energy and their scent can help clear your mind and reduce anxiety
  • Freshens breathe - lemons can help fight bacteria in your mouth and lesson the potential for bad breath
  • Hydration - we all know we need to drink water everyday, lemons can be a tasty addition
  • Clears skin - the vitamin c and other antioxidants found in lemons help to fight against free radicals and decrease wrinkles and blemishes. It also decreases the amount of toxins in your body to help keep your skin clear from the inside out.
  • Aids in digestion - lemons help to cleanse the liver and loosen toxins in the digestive track
  • Balances PH levels - when your body is too acidic you are more likely to get sick, drinking lemon water regularly helps to remove overall acidity in the body
  • Aids in weight loss -  lemons are high in pectin fiber which help fight hunger cravings 

Im running to the store right now to get me some lemons for the week!
