Why Your Day Needs Lemon Water #7: Improve Skin Health

Who doesn't want to have healthier skin? What a silly question--everyone does, of course! Did you know that drinking warm lemon water can make your skin look healthier and more beautiful? Vitamin C is one of the nutrients your body needs to produce collagen and elastin. These two proteins keep your skin healthy, fresh, and elastic. But when your skin is lacking in the two nutrients, you'll notice that it starts to sag, dry out, and wrinkles will form. That is why you want to add lemon water to your daily meals. The more Vitamin C you give your body, the more there is available to produce the collagen needed by your skin. Vitamin C can also help to eliminate the microbes that lead to skin infections and acne. The detoxifying properties of lemon water will prevent free radical damage to your skin, and you'll find that applying lemon water directly to your skin can help to reduce the visibility of age spots and scars.
