~Lemon and water both have clarifying actions in your body. Both lemon and water help flush out toxins in your system. Although lemons are acidic, they are alkalizing in your body.

Lemon water is truly beneficial in any beauty care regimen.Start your day drinking a glass lemon water first thing every morning!

Lemons are also very good at clarifying your hair to remove hair product build up. For those with dark hair, use lemon juice to add golden and red highlights to your hair. For those with blonde hair, use lemon to lighten your blonde color. Squeeze the juice from 1/2 lemon into your hair and sit out in the sun for an hour.
