Lemon, Mint and Cucumber – The Delicious Detox


If you are feeling sluggish, bloated and perhaps your skin’s not as clear as usual, jump right in and start doing this detox. You can make it a regular thing or as a two-day detox, either way it’s a win win.


A few of the many known benefits of including lemon, mint, and cucumber water in your everyday diet are :
 
Weight Loss? Don’t mind if I do – Lemons are said to curb hunger pangs thereby reducing trips to the fridge and pantry between meals.
 
Goodbye Heartburn – Known for their digestive benefits, lemons help flush out toxins and impurities from our system. Say goodbye to constant heartburn and indigestion.
 
Bloating Begone – Both lemons and cucumbers are diuretic so your body does not retain excessive water making you feel less bloated. Cucumbers are also very high in fibre which again helps the flushing out process as explained in point 2.
 
Get The Glow -Who doesn’t want flawless skin? Drink the magic potion, your skin will go all clear, fresh and radiant. I promise.
 
Got you hooked haven’t I? Alright without further adieu, here is the recipe to the aforementioned magic potion.

You will need :
  • 2 litres water
  • 1/2 cucumber sliced
  • 12-14 mint leaves
  • 1 lemon sliced into rings
Next :
  • Mix all the ingredients together in a jug or a pitcher and refrigerate over night. This allows all the flavours to perfectly infuse.
*Start with a single glass first thing in the morning and build up as you go. It is soooooo refreshing!!
