Why Drinking Lemon Water Can Save Your Skin

August 24, 2018

Lemon water often finds itself incorporated into diet and weight loss plans because it can help curb the appetite, but did you know that it’s actually great for your skin too? It’s as simple as the age old saying “we are what we eat,” drinking antioxidant rich lemon infused water means you’re going to absorb its nutrients from the inside out.

So how exactly does lemon water positively affect the skin? Let’s take a look..

Lemons are well known to have high levels of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant. Consuming vitamin C stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen enhances the skins’ quality and elasticity, making it look more youthful, fresh and healthy. Another benefit of antioxidants is that they protect the cells from damage caused by free radicals. Damage from free radicals can cause the skin to become premature aged, so consuming antioxidants is just as important as using skincare products that contain them.

Drinking lemon water acts like a mini internal cleanse because lemons have a natural detoxing effect on our organs. And what’s the largest organ in our body? The skin! Therefore, drinking lemon water can help detoxify your skin on a cellular level. This can help eliminate acne-causing bacteria and banishing breakouts.

Are you feeling thirsty for some lemon water yet?!
