A glass of water with a few lemon drops and a slab of ginger is great because the ginger actually activates blood circulation in your body and improves overall radiance but also helps improve the tone of your skin! Try drinking this everyday in the morning for a boost of energy from the hydration and also from the improved circulation! It’s actually really refreshing and ginger is great to help fight off colds as well.

Lemons

Lemon juice contains high levels of potassium and vitamin C. A strong antioxidant, lemon juice is also a mild diuretic, so adding lemons to your drinking water can help support your liver and kidneys in their natural job of flushing out toxins.

Ginger

Fresh ginger contains something called gingerol, which possesses anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and aids in healthy cellular activity in the gastrointestinal tract.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 inch knob of ginger sliced thinly or grated
  • lemon
  • cup of hot water

Simply pour boiling water over the ginger, let steep for about 5mins then add lemon juice.
