Lemon juice: drink a glass daily {Ingredient}


Today, I would be talking about the benefits of lemon juice for our body. We are all advised to drink a glass of water with lemon juice and honey mixed in it in the morning to lose weight. Right? Does it really work? Well, it did never work for me. But, I have found other benefits of doing the same. Or, probably a little different. Because, I am pretty lazy so I squeeze a half lemon into a glass of warm water and drink it. I do not bother to mix honey in it as I do not like to take much of sugar and am too lazy. And, guess what. It has done wonders for my skin and body.

Drinking lemon water in the morning has cleansed my body inside out. Lemon helps in the detoxification process of the body. And, it has helped to bring a glow in my complexion internally. Lemon has Vitamin C which is also responsible for building up collagen in our skin. Collagen is necessary to keep the skin firm and young. So, lemon is necessary to stay young. Forget Botox and surgeries. Stick to lemon and you will never really need any of them. Moreover, it is necessary to keep our digestive system in the right order and our metabolism high.

There are many other benefits of lemon juice apart from the above-stated.
  • Applying lemon juice to the skin helps in lightening the blemishes and any scars or dark spots. But, do not apply lemon juice alone. Mix it with honey or any face mask and then apply.
  • Lemon is good for bleaching the facial hair. Mix honey and lemon juice and apply it over the face and you would find in a month, the facial hair is no more. It actually does not go away but simply gets bleached and is not any more visible to the naked eye unless looked from very close. 
  • Lemon juice when applied to hair helps in curing dandruff.
  • Lemon juice can be used as a last rinse to bring shine in the hair.
  • If you want to lighten your hair color, apply lemon juice on your hair and go and sit in sun. The heat will help lemon bleach your hair. If you do it pretty frequently, you might even end up with blond hair color.
  • Mix it in face masks. It helps bring a glow on your face by cleaning your skin right down to the pores.
  • Lemon peels can be infused in hair oil to get its benefit stated above in point no. 3 and 4.
  • You can grind the dried lemon peels and use it as a body scrub. They leave a refreshing scent on your body.
  • Pour lemon juice into the bath water to experience a refreshing bath.
Caution: Use lemon juice externally on the body only at night. It makes your skin photosensitive (sensitive to light). Exposure to sun would be extremely harmful so use sunscreen diligently after using lemon on your skin.

  5. But doesnt it create acidity?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's never caused acidity for me either. I take an acid reducer about 20 min before I drink the lemon juice in the morning. I've read that lemon juice actually helps make your internal ph more alkaline, which reduces acid ironically enough. That's why it helps your skin so much because most people's internal ph is too acidic and needs to be more alkaline in order to be at it's most beneficial. I just take an antacid because I sometimes get heartburn...but it's not happened from the juice, and there are days I drink it with no antacid before at all. Overall, it's amazing for your body and I will always drink lemon water now!

    2. well, thanks for this piece of info...didn't know about this!!!

      Delete
    3. 'I take an acid reducer about 20 min before I drink the lemon juice in the morning.'

      Yeah if you must ....but you want the acidity in your stomach to help you absorb the nutrients in there to the rest of your body.
      If you constantly keep your stomach alkaline, you are starving you body of nutrients and will eat constantly.
      An acidic stomach is what helps your body absorb those nutrients.

    well..i drink lots of lemon juice..its really very beneficial for the health it cleans your body from inside cleaning blood and stomach and also cleaning the skin from inside.it contains lots of vitamins and minerals which are need for the body.its also kills worms in intestine.i really would recommend to drink lemon juice when ever possible it is natural and has no side effects in the body.other cold drinks mainly pepsi and coca cola and energy drinks are very harmfull to the health.please try to avoid it......

    3. I read that you should use a straw when drinking lemon water, the citric acid is really not good for your teeth.

      Question: If lemons dry out your skin when using on the surface can it still dry out your skin if you're drinking or eating them?

      Sad to say, but, I'm concerned about the smile lines and age lines. (I'm 39yrs old)

      Delete
    4. yes, you can use tomato everyday :) or, you can even try alternate by using other juices like mint, coriander, cucumber etc. use sls free facewashes...don't leave the face just like that!!! its important to clean the grime and dust and all. its good to be aware but it would be foolish to leave everything and the chemical scare is just blown out of proportion. using besan wouldn't be just enough!!

      Delete
    5. no. ingested lemon doesn't cause dry skin at all. i haven't read about the straw thing but yes its a little harsh for enamel of the teeth but drinking it once a day is absolutely fine...you don't need straw and in fact using straw can make your cheeks hollow which in turn makes the person look aged.

      Delete
    6. Thanks for the great advice and tip about the straw!

    7. I use lemon juice on my skin three times a week and it is amazing. All the other times I use extra virgin olive oil. Do the research, its worth it. I also use the oil for hair treatments twice a week. Alternating those two is like the fountain of youth.

      Delete
    8. I know for a fact that the extra virgin olive oil works wonders for the skin. I have been using it for a while now and my skin looks beautiful!

    9. do not use lemon juice on your skin so often. it is very drying for skin!

    1. no it does not reduce the photo sensitivity. if you apply it at night, it gives time for skin to recover. always apply it at night and wash it off as soon as it dries which should not be more than 10 min. do not keep it overnight.

    1. Do you have the lemonade with warm/hot water? It's worked wonders for me, I have 1 whole squeezed lemon with warm water first thing in the morning and 1 right before bed. It's made me feel regular and i've seen my face is becoming brighter :)

      Delete
    2. first of all, applying lemon on skin every night is a very bad idea!
      http://www.perfectskincareforyou.com/2012/11/ph-level-and-citrus-fruits-skin-care.html

      and, it also causes skin to become photosensitive because of which the skin gets darkened in sun! so, i would suggest not to use lemon and wear proper protection and sunscreen when in sun and take proper balanced diet. as far as i can understand it is a lack of vitamin which is causing that issue.

    1. i don't know about safi much but i have heard that it makes one breakout when you start taking it and then reduces. so, you can continue taking it. along with that keep a balanced diet. for dark circles, apply almond oil. a drop of oil every night around the eyes keeps them well and reduces dark circles and sleep properly as well.
      first do not use lemon. instead use tomato or potato. and always use them fresh. now that you have squeezed that lemon juice in the bottle, continue using it but include a few drops of tomato juice as well every time you apply it. and, check out this:

  44. Avoid drinking juices. It's always better to eat fruits. And altogether we get wee amount of goodness when we drink juice. This may sound like an abrupt departure of goodness from fruits. But this is true. The snag is with pulp getting separated and wasted. It's suppose to be consumed.

      well, depending on what your exercise intensity is and what your skin/body condition already is, if you have already been healthy you wouldn't see any change!i would suggest you to shift to tomato + honey instead of lemon. check out the following post:

    4. use turmeric to remove hairs from your skin. take a table spoon of regular turmeric and mix with milk and apply on your face and neck. let it dry and scrub off. this should be done daily. you can also check this:

  53. Hi, Would you know if 'calamansi' or the small limes have the same benefits as Lemons. In our country, lemons are very expensive. So most people use 'Calamansi' as alternative instead. Have you tried those before?

    1. i have no idea. i have never heard of calamansi. on hindsight, i googled it and yes you can use it :) check out what wiki says:

    3. hey...apply ginger juice on the acne eruptions. also, mix a table spoon of ACV in plain water and store it in a spray bottle. use it as and when needed. also, you can drink one table spoon of ACV in a glass of water thrice a week but NO MORE!! also, you should probably consult a doc since its hormonal if they can prescribe something.

  57. Hi, I have clogged pores and oily skin. I use and acne cleanser two times a day and I was looking for ways that help to unclog pores and lemon juice seemed to be a really great option until I discovered that it really dries out your skin. I plan on drinking lemon water in the morning from now on, but I saw tomato juice works well too. But I was wondering how it should be applied as well as if there is anything that you can mix it with to get the best results?

    1. Mix lime juice with honey instead using it directly

    2. you can use tomato juice as well. to unblog your pores, take steam once a week for 2-5 minutes and use a good face wash. i can suggest garnier one.

      yes, you can drink lemon water but it wouldn't do anything for clogged pores. for oily skin, use rustic art aloe gel as moisturizer:

  59. Hi. I have lemon juice mixed with oil in my hair right now. Will it be okay if I leave it overnight? I didn't think about it earlier, but now I'm worried it might have a reaction. Please help. Taking a shower at ten at night is a pretty difficult decision to make :P

    1. hey Khushee...i do think i replied to your comment somewhere! its ok to leave it overnight but next time just apply the lemon juice an hour before shampooing instead because it can dry out the scalp a lot! there is generally no reaction or anything to be afraid of so don't worry about that :)

    1. when you start using hydroquinone and such ingredients, you should not stop them. and, it does make skin very photosensitive so make sure you apply sunscreen. do not steam your skin everyday. it dries it out. glad that tomato juice helped but do not use lemon juice everyday. do check out following posts:

  70. @Swati Murti Please please give me some advice. I really do not understand my skin when i wake up in the morning its great and i have a clear complexion and then maybe an hour later my face looks very dull and tired and like I've not slept and goes slightly red. Its starting to really make me feel down and would love if it stayed as awake and clear as it did in the morning. Do you have any advice on best ways for my skin to look awake and clear. I have a healthy diet and drink a fair amount of water. Thank you

    1. hi Steph. its a very common problem. 90% the reason is because hydration levels of the skin are falling off. so, use a hydrating moisturizer. right in the morning, splash a lot of cold water on the skin. after shower, use the moisturizer and follow with sunscreen. same thing in evening after cleansing off the sunscreen and washing off the face.
      and, eat lot of nuts and drink lots of fluids including two cups of green tea everyday and increase water intake.
