Reasons Why Lemon Water Will be Your New Bestie | Aria

Since spring is arriving, the weather is slowly starting to warm up, which means I’m constantly searching for a refreshing glass of water. Staying hydrated is a year-round concern but luckily it’s this time of year when lots of fruits are starting to come back into season Lets fancy up that H2O people! Ditch those sugary beverages and stick with a healthy alternative that boost our bodies with vitamins. The fact that they are gorgeous is also a bonus { tip: this will totally spice up your snapchat story 😉 } So give your water and yourself a makeover by simply adding a little bit of lemon! Soooo yummy! Here are some reasons which will hopefully get you on the lemon water train with me. Chugga Chugga Choo Choo…

  1. It Boosts Your Immune System

When you’re stressed (like me), you tend to lose Vitamin C first. Lemon juice is full of vitamin C, which is why they are known for boosting immunity not only when it comes to colds, but they even contain 22 anti-cancer nutrients as well. They also include vital minerals for your body including calcium and potassium.

  1. It Protects Your Heart

Lemons are super duper high in potassium, which is amazing for your heart (Better keep it safe for a special someone), as well as for the functioning of your brain and nerves. The Vitamin C in the lemons can lower blood cholesterol levels,lower blood pressure, increase the production of HDL (the good) cholesterol, and lower blood lipoprotein levels.

  1. A Morning Energy Boost to Help Cut Caffeine

Having warm lemon water in the morning helps flush out toxins, balances your PH levels in the body, and reduces inflammation. Plus, I always feel more refreshed when I drink lemon water in the morning rather than getting energy in another form.

  1. Keeps Keep Your Skin Clear

This is probably the biggest one for me. Ever since I’ve started drinking lemon water on a daily basis my skin has been starting to clear up. My acne’s not fully gone, but it’s getting there! Lemons contain antioxidants that help fight off the P. acne bacteria, as well as aiding in clearing your yucky clogged pores. For any dark spots you might have, try rubbing a little bit of fresh lemon juice right on them. It’ll help lighten them over time.

Generally, if you are under 150 pounds, try squeezing the juice of half a lemon into water. If you are over 150 pounds, try squeezing the juice of a whole lemon instead! Flavour your water however tastes best to you. You can also try other detox waters with different fruits other than lemon if you’re interested. Experiment and have fun!

Best wishes and take care,

Aria ❤
