    Natural Skin Care Tips: 5 Easily-found Ingredients That Do Wonders for Your Skin


    The skincare benefits of citrus

    LEMON Even though lemon juice is acidic, it actually alkalizes our body and cleans out the blood, liver, and kidneys. Lemons provide electrolytes. Lemons are a type of “coolant” so it makes sense we gravitate to lemon drinks in the summer. You can actually cool your body (and smell wonderful) by rubbing the juice from the fruit and peels on your wrists and neck. Lemon water is a good source of vitamin C and antioxidants. It also contains vitamins (such as vitamin B, riboflavin), minerals (such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus), proteins and carbohydrates. Lemons are highly acidic but they contain the good acids that your body needs. If your body is not alkaline, as it should be, then you could have a series of health problems from heartburn and acid reflux that many suffer with on a daily basis; digestive issues, and irregularity. An acidic body can wreak havoc on your allergies, especially if you are an asthmatic, or suffer from frequent headaches. To flush out a urinary tract infection, or kidney infection, you need to flush your body and alkalize it with lemon water. Being anti-inflammatory, it helps flush the bad bacteria and toxins from your body while instantly cooling the inflamed tissues causing you infection. Taking fresh lemon squeezed into a warm glass of water in the morning before breakfast and then once again before dinner help and improves digestion. Lemon water makes your liver secrete more bile and thereby helps in digestion. Adding a little honey to your water will make it more tolerable to drink. Drinking lemon water regularly also prevents constipation. Lemon is a good remedy for cold, flu and fever. It breaks fever by increasing perspiration. Actually lemon balm is more effective than lemon water for treating fever. Applying the balm throughout your body will make you sweat more and will bring down temperature. Lemon water has an anti bacterial activity and is considered as an effective remedy for sore throat. Drink a few glasses of lemon water during the day and you will surely feel better. Not only sore throat it also helps in treating tonsillitis or asthma. Lemon water has a diuretic effect and is proved to be valuable in cystitis. Taking lemon juice with hot water few times a day eases the burning sensation and also stops bleeding in cystitis. Since lemon water contributes to purify blood it is a best treatment for diseases like cholera or malaria. Lemon water taken with honey helps in maintaining your body energy when you are in a diet plan and also reduces your body weight. It’s definitely a good natural weight loss remedy. Since lemon possesses antiseptic properties, it is used for treatment of chapped skin. Relieve chapped lips by mixing a few drops of lemon water with glycerin, like petroleum jelly and rubbing over chapped lips. Lemon water is considered as an effective home remedy for acne, eczema and many other skin problems. Applying fresh lemon juice on the areas of toothache reduces pain. Massaging the gums with lemon juice stops gum bleeding.

    Master Cleanse Detox Diet- best explanation I've seen yet! I personally did this with my husband for 13 days. It was amazing I didn't do it for the weight loss (although I've lost 15 lbs) and so far 3 weeks later kept it off. But for me this cleanse hit the reset button and afterwards I could taste every artificial ingredient in anything I ate, it was disgusting so now my body craves healthy food
