Mirror Mirror on the wall, who has the most beautiful skin in the world? Still waiting for an answer to this question?
Do you look in the mirror and see that dull, stressed face? Those puffy eyes, grisly pores, and acnes? You really wish you had a magic wand to make them disappear forever, don’t you? Your wish is my command and here’s the magic – detox water! Detoxification is essentially the removal of toxic substance mainly carried out by the liver.
Just how your body needs detoxification to maintain its healthy state, your skin needs the same. There are many detox face masks that work but when the detox process is carried out from inside the body, you won’t need any face masks ever.
I have been experimenting with various detox water recipes for quite some time now. After trying many fancy recipes, I found my grandma’s the most workable. So here I go, 6 magical detox water recipes! with love, from my granny.
Always and always start your day with a glass of hot or warm lemon water. Lemon raises the vitamin C quotient in your body and due to the antioxidants found in them, they fight damage which rejuvenates your skin.
Having a hot lemon water in the morning also improves digestion which detoxifies the body, keeping your skin clean all day long.
Turmeric Water with Black Pepper
I can go on and on explaining the benefits of turmeric. Turmeric has powerful healing spice due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. Having a warm glass of turmeric water once a day will repair your damaged skin.
Now, black pepper also has its own properties. It stimulates digestion, enables weight loss and since it is one of the best exfoliators, it enables blood circulation providing the skin with more oxygen.
So, adding crushed black pepper to your hot turmeric water will do wonders to your skin.
Ginger & Lemon Water
Ginger is Magic. Ginger and lemon detox water or ginger tea, whatever you might want to call is supposed to be a magical detox water with innumerable health benefits. It is so healthy that it can help fight cancer as well.
Ginger tea improves digestion and my grandma always says that healthy stomach inside is healthy skin outside. Go for it, skip your regular tea once a day and sip on a ginger tea for a super skin detoxification.
Cinnamon doesn’t do wonders only for skin but also for hair. Cinnamon fights acnes like a brave soldier and removes blemishes.
There are many ways to use Cinnamon, using it as a detox water is the best. Mix the cinnamon powder in a hot water, drink it once a day and you are good to go.
Cucumber – Lemon – Mint water
Now this is one refreshing option. The combination goes amazing with each other. Cucumber makes for excellent dehydration, and also contains anti-inflammatory properties. Mint aids in digestion and gives flavor to your drink.
Put all the three ingredients in a normal temperature water jar and keep drinking this flavored water the entire day. It is amazing for skin and weight loss.
For sure this has to make up to the list and why not? Green tea is the best detox you can ever get. Have a glass of green tea every night before you sleep.
It not only helps in getting a beautiful skin but also a beautiful body since it detoxifies the whole body. Never skip on your green tea. Make it your bedtime regime. You see how interesting we can make a boring glass of water!
