If you are interested in skincare tips to make your skin healthier, read on. We all know that drinking enough water each day is a must-have for a healthy glowing complexion, and a lack of it (dehydration!) means our skin starts to suffer - cue premature wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes and blemishes.
Alcohol, coffee, a rise in temperature and exercise can all cause us to become more dehydrated, so it's important that we make drinking water or herbal teas, one of our important daily health habits.
So, what's the deal with lemon and water? And can I add my Correxiko collagen powder to this?
Lemons are a rich natural food source of vitamin C, which is great for your overall daily health needs and does wonderful things for improving your complexion.
As vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, we need to make sure we are topping up our supplies each day, eating foods high in natural vitamin C, such as lemons, limes, grapefruits, kiwi, berries, red peppers and even potato - but lemons are one of the richest sources of vitamin C and also taste so delicious when you add a couple of slices to hot or cold water - fresh, zesty and great for you form the inside out.
A PERFECT START TO YOUR DAY (SKINCARE TIPS)
Models, such as our lovely ambassador Lisa Snowdon, and the super-mum and model Abbey Clancy (pictured above) have to take great care of their skin and need to make sure their complexions are always fresh, healthy and camera ready. Abbey and Lisa are big advocates of starting their morning skincare ritual in the kitchen. This always begins with a big glass of water, a squeeze of lemon juice and a couple of slices of fresh lemon and Correxiko wild marine collagen - a super simple way to refresh and hydrate first thing. This tried and tested combination of collagen, water and vitamin C is a delicious drink that will do wonders for your skin and health.
You can enjoy this drink at home or add to a bottle and drink whenever and wherever you are - post-gym, on the school run, at your desk, or commuting to work.
WHAT YOU NEED
Water - this can be served warm or cold, whatever your personal preference. Our collagen will dissolve and be just as effective in either hot or cold.
Lemon - you just need a couple of slices and a little squeeze. A tip from Naomi, one of our nutritionists at Correxiko, is to cut your lemon into slices and pop them into the freezer, this way you ALWAYS have fresh lemon, and it will be ready for whenever you need it.
Half a tablespoon of Correxiko collagen powder - either bovine (yellow packet) or marine (blue packet).
Add the powder to the glass or mug, add a bit of water, mix in the powder with a spoon, and add the rest of the water. Add a squeeze of lemon, a couple of slices of lemon, wait until the powder has dissolved, drink and enjoy.
Hope you like this refreshing summer beauty drink. Let us know how you get on?
