Friends, I have an easy beauty tip for you: start your day with hot water and lemon. The idea is that if you drink hot water with lemon (either the juice of a lemon or a slice of lemon) in the morning you begin your day with a drink that naturally cleanses your body and aids in digestion. Lemon has been shown to help boost the liver’s function which is why it’s helpful with detoxing (this is what the liver does!). Also, it’s a nice tasting drink! This beauty tip is practiced by many celebrities, including Miranda Kerr and Lauren Conrad.
When I travel, I’ve been bringing sliced lemons with me and I make hot water in the hotel room’s coffee maker. I drink the lemon water while I get ready or drive to the office. While lemon slices are easy to travel with, you might also try juicing the lemons. In Lauren Conrad’s post, she says that she usually drinks about 12-16 oz of hot water with 1/2 a lemon’s juice.
