Many celebrities with glowing skin as well as other people with great skin swear by drinking lemon and water every morning. Eva Green does this, and if you want me to bring it closer to home, Cassandre Beccai, a natural hair blogger who has got flawless skin, drinks this every morning.

Now lemons are known to cleanse the liver and thereby detoxify the body, resulting in clearer skin. Most of our skin issues result from the liver and the colon. That is why when people do liver cleanses or colon cleanses in form of fruits, teas, colonic irrigations etc, they almost immediately experience smoother and clearer skin. I did a colonic irrigation in 2012 and my skin was glowing for so long!
There are about 10 to 15 miracle foods that help with detoxifying the liver, and in either my next post or my next 2 posts I will write briefly on them. I reckon that if one picks 2 or three of these foods and tries to take them frequently, you would see a difference. An example of these foods are garlic (I prefer garlic supplements), dandelion root tea, avocados, beetroots (can be found in Shoprite), spinach, carrots etc. I will focus on those that can be found in this country and like I said, what is important is trying to have about 2 or 3 of these foods in our diet consistently.
I decided to write about the lemon and water because I have been trying it for about a month now. It doesn't take me 2 minutes to cut open a lemon, squeeze it into a glass, fish out the seeds, add some water, and gulp it down. Now I know I have been doing some other things to help my skin, but most of them are things I have always been doing. The major change to my regimen has been internal, and I have seen a big improvement in my skin since when I started focusing on what I put inside my body. So it is only logical that I attribute the improvement to lemon and water. Whatever the case, anything that will rid my body of toxins and make me healthier, and isn't expensive or time consuming, is a big YES for me!

So give it a try will you?
