Sip Your Way to Radiant Skin with Lemon Water

Hey lovely ladies!

Today, I want to chat with you about lemon water. Yep, that simple drink you've probably heard about since your grandma's time. But hey, turns out, grandma knew a thing or two!

I drink lemon water every single morning. Why? Because it's delicious and great for my skin.

Now, I know what you might be thinking, "Lemon water? How is that going to help my skin?" Well, buckle up, because I'm about to spill the tea (or should I say lemon water?).

What are the benefits?

First off, let's talk about hydration. As we age, our skin tends to get a bit more, let's say, "thirsty." Lemon water is like a tall glass of H2O with a twist! It helps to keep our skin hydrated from the inside out, which is key for maintaining that youthful glow.

But wait, there's more! Lemons are packed with Vitamin C, which is like a superhero for our skin. This vitamin helps to brighten our complexion and even out any pesky dark spots or pigmentation. Plus, it's a total boss when it comes to fighting off those sneaky little free radicals that can cause wrinkles and fine lines.

My Lemon Water Recipe

Now, onto the recipe! It's super simple, trust me. All you need is:

  • A big ol' glass of water (room temperature is best)
  • Half a lemon (freshly squeezed)

Just squeeze that lemon juice into your water, give it a little stir, and voila! You've got yourself a refreshing and skin-loving drink that you can enjoy any time of day.

You don't have to follow my recipe.

When it comes to making your lemon water, it's all about personal preference. Some gals like to go all out and squeeze a whole lemon into their glass, while others prefer just a squeeze or two.

Personally, I like to use about half a lemon for a standard-sized glass. But hey, if you're feeling extra zesty, go ahead and add more!

And warm water is the way to go. Not boiling hot, mind you, but just warm enough to help your body absorb all those lovely lemony nutrients.

What about lemon juice from the store?

While it might seem convenient, it's not quite the same as using freshly squeezed lemon juice. See, store-bought lemon juice often contains additives and preservatives that can dilute its skincare benefits. So if you can, I'd recommend sticking to the real deal - a good ol' fashioned lemon straight from the produce aisle.

But hey, if you're in a pinch or just not feeling up to squeezing lemons, store-bought lemon juice will still give you a little boost of Vitamin C. Just be sure to check the label and opt for 100% pure lemon juice with no added sugars or funky stuff.


So, next time you're feeling parched, skip the sugary sodas and reach for a glass of lemon water instead. Your skin will thank you for it!

  • Hey, Kathy! Taking your morning medicine or vitamins with lemon water should generally be just fine. Lemon water is a gentle way to start your day and can actually help with the absorption of certain nutrients. However, it’s always a good idea to double-check with your healthcare provider or pharmacist, especially if you’re on any specific medications that might interact with citrus or if you have any underlying health conditions.

  • Is it ok to take morning meds and /or vitamins with this lemon water?

  • Hey, Aime! Absolutely, you can definitely switch out lemon for orange in your water! In fact, orange water can also be really beneficial for your skin. Oranges are also rich in Vitamin C, just like lemons, so you’ll still get that skin-loving boost. Plus, oranges have their own set of antioxidants and nutrients that can help keep your skin looking radiant and healthy.

  • Anyway to exchange orange for a lemon¿ I have an orange tree.
