The best way to rid your body of harmful toxins is to drink water, and plenty of it. Adding various acidic and alkaline fruits and veggies can aid in flushing out those nasty toxins. Detox water also has benefits on the skin. Although the link between a poor diet and skin outbreaks has been controversial, I whole heartedly believe the condition of our skin is reflexive of the condition of our internal systems. Cut back on refined sugar and meat and dairy with added hormones. Add this hydrating drink to your diet.
What You Will Need:
- 1 Lime
- 1 Lemon
- 1 Orange
- 1 Cucumber
- 5-12 Mint leaves
- Handful of Strawberries
- 1 tbsp of Cinnamon
- Large pitcher, cutting board, knife
Lime: great for skincare, improves digestion and boosts immune system.
Lemon: stimulates and cleanses the digestive track, aids in digestion, helps with constipation, boosts immune system.
Orange: strengthens hair, protects skins, prevents signs of aging.
Cucumber: reduces puffiness around the eyes, eliminates toxins, helps avoid water retention.
Mint: helps to improve digestion, gets rid of stomach cramps, soothes skin infections.
Strawberries: fights carcinogens, contains anti-aging properties such as biotin and antioxidant ellagic acid which helps prevent sagging skin, improves skin complexion and tones, helps build strong hair and nails.
Cinnamon: improves circulation, thins blood, manages blood sugar levels, minimizes sugar cravings to aid in monitoring caloric intake.
What To Do:
Clean your fruit and vegetables well. Slice the lemon, lime, orange, cucumbers, and strawberries into thin slices then add all to the pitcher. Add the mint leaves and the cinnamon. (I stopped adding cinnamon in my pitcher as I do not like seeing it floating in my water. I add it to my glass depending on how I feel.) Add two handfuls of ice and fill pitcher with purified water. Allow to sit overnight and enjoy! I like to drink my water while eating grapefruit.
