We know the most popular drink in summer is lemonade, it instantly refreshes and cools your insides on a hot day. Lemon is one of the most loved fruits but what you don’t know is that lemon can be used for beauty and health hacks!
Lemon and Yoghurt
Before bed, squeeze a lemon on a cup of low fat yoghurt. If you don’t mind the tangy taste of the lemons, then enjoy this combination for dinner. It will increase your metabolism and help you lose weight faster.
It’s a good source of Vitamin C
A healthy dose of Vitamin C protects our body from infections and maintains healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin C reduces the severity of cold symptoms and acts as an effective antihistamine that lessens the unpleasant effects of the common cold, including inflammation, runny nose and aches. Vitamin C also ensures the proper dilation of the blood vessels which helps to protect us against certain diseases like atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, heart congestion and severe chest pains.
You know how summer can get and even though some of us shower ourselves with deodorants, sometimes it is not the best thing you can do. Artificial deodorants have a lot of chemicals that can later on escalate to breast cancer. Lemon, on the other hand, is 100% natural and rich in vitamins and minerals, it is also antibacterial, this natural deodorant leaves you lemony fresh. It’s not an antiperspirant, however, meaning it’s not going to stop you from sweating but it will definitely control the smell. To use lemon as a deodorant, simply cut a slice of lemon and gently rub it on your armpit or squeeze the juice in a bottle and use a tiny bit every morning. It will also lighten up your armpit.
Getting rid of Bad Breath
After you enjoy a garlicky Shawerma, try having some lemon juice or lemon water. Lemon is known to kill bad breath as it stimulates saliva, and water helps prevent a dry mouth, which will lead to a bad breath that is caused by excess bacteria growth.
Amazingly, the smell of lemon and citrus fruits has been proven to reduce levels of stress and depression. Try it to lift your mood before heading to the office. It will definitely make your day 10 times better. If you also feel a bit stressed during a day try drinking some lemon juice!
What are you waiting for, when life gives you lemon, you make EVERYTHING!
