5 REASONS to drink LEMON WATER first in the morning

Hi gals, how doing ? It took almost a week for me to come back right ???This time i am here with another ‘healthy’ post. The very second thing i do after waking up is drinking warm  water with lemon ( first is of course brushing). It actually helps me in many ways. Here are my top 5 reasons.

3216417938_c1dbaee659_o

1. Preparing the resting digestive system.

After a 8 hr rest warm lemon water is the best thing to start your digestive functions with . It is more desirable for body than caffeinated drinks. Other thing though not  given anywhere , is that it helps with constipation.

2. Clear skin

It helps maintaining a healthy , glowing skin. It eliminates the toxic things which harm the skin. It boosts the recycling of skin’s cells.

3.Clearing mind

I do not know how many others will agree with me ,but it helps clear my otherwise cloudy ‘early morning’ brain. Mind you this is not given anywhere.

4.Boost metabolism.

Boosting metabolism is the loveliest word i have ever come across . This means losing calories . Wow does not it sound great . It is controversial whether to add honey with lemon water for this purpose . But AYURVEDA says ( or RAMDEV BABA says)honey and lemon water combo early in the morning will help in weight reduction.

5. DETOX

As i told you earlier ,Lemon water helps to eliminate toxic substances from body .

A QUICK HAIR MASK FOR HEALTHY HAIR

Hello friends, welcome again. This is a requested post again. I wanted to do this post morning itself ,but I was in some mess. I am going to travel this weekend , I had to make some arrangements & all of a sudden my phone refuses to work. So I had to wait till this time to write.

Most of my friends know that my hair though never long , is healthy. I always have had silky hair but for the past few years i started to get split ends. I don’t get them anymore ,because of my hair care routine which I will tell you in an other post . For now I will tell you about an amazing hair mask which is multipurpose.

All you need to do is to take

honey-341566_640Banana_(white_background)

  1. 1or 2 bananas ( depends on hair length) – they moisturise hair,give smoothness & nourishment.
  2. Spoonful virgin coconut oil. -In addition to smoothness it helps with dandruff too .
  3. Honey – has antibacterial & emollient properties.
  4. Add all of the ingredients in mixer ( or blender whatever)
  5. Take the smooth paste into a bowl.
  6. Just apply it.
  7. Wait for 30 mins. I wait for 1 hr usually cause there is no harm in it.
  8. Wash it with shampoo.

Few tips

  • Wear some old dress while applying.
  • Use shower cap while waiting.
  • It’s better to wash hair twice with shampoo to remove all the residue.
  • MOST IMPORTANT is read my hair care tips in future too.( he he)
