Ok, so all you need to do is slice up some fresh lemon and squeeze it out into your water. Then with the remaining slice you can toss it in your water and enjoy it. It's so fresh and tastes great.
Ok so tip number 2. Lemon on your face. When I think of lemon and honey, I think of a hot drink for curing a sore throat. I mean, I usually do that for myself whenever I have a sore throat. Did you also know it makes an incredible face mask? Yes, it does. Honey is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. It also helps absorb any impurities from your pores and your skin. Lemon can also brighten and exfoliate your skin. It is great for acne problems, skin, healing acne scars and sun spots. To make this theraputic mask all you have to do is squeeze in half a lemon, organic is always best, with two tablespoons of honey and then mix it well, blend it together.
Once that's done, apply it all over your face. But make sure your face is clean before doing so, and try to avoid the eye area. So after you spread this all over your face, leave it on for about 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off. Then after that, pat dry and admire your fresh beautiful skin. Ok so on to the last one, and this is tip number 3. Some of us are not blessed with the smell of roses when we perspire.
