Honey and Lemon

1.  Drinking lemon juice mixed with lukewarm water and honey may help to reduce belly fat and obesity.

Lemons are low in calories while honey is a fat free, natural energy booster. Their combination helps to melt down the fatty deposits in the body. Honey contains natural fruit sugar which is digested easily. Add one teaspoon of honey and three teaspoons of lemon juice to a glass of warm water. Stir well and drink it every morning to shed those extra kilos from the body.

2.  Honey and lemon concoction can also help to cure cough, bronchitis and asthma.

It acts as an expectorant and moves the phlegm out of the respiratory tract. This concoction is much more effective than any readymade cough syrup. Add 1 tablespoon of honey and 2 teaspoon of lemon in warm water. Drink this concoction several times a day. This will help to alleviate nasal and chest congestion. Honey soothes the throat and inhibits certain infection-causing bacteria.

3.  Honey and lemon face pack is very effective in lightening the skin tone.

Mix equal quantities of honey and lemon juice and apply it all over the face. Leave it for 20 minutes and wash it off with cold water. This will not just lighten the skin tone, but will also keep the skin supple and glowing.

4.  Honey and lemon face pack can also help to treat acne and pimples.

It contains anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties which penetrate deeply into the skin to absorb impurities from the pores. It also keeps the skin fresh, smooth and wrinkle free. Lemon works as a great exfoliator to get rid of acne, sun burn and other blemishes. Apply honey and lemon face pack twice a week to get best results.

5.  Ginger, lemon and honey tea is a very good remedy to treat cold and flu.

Consuming plenty of foods and fluids rich in Vitamin C helps to restore the immune system which in turns heals you more quickly. Bring half litre of water to boil and add 2 slices of ginger to it. Add 3 tablespoons of lemon and 3 tablespoons of honey. Strain this tea and drink it 3 to 4 times a day to get rid of cold and flu.

6.  Honey and lemon tonic is very useful to treat digestive issues.

Make a tonic using 1 teaspoon of raw honey mixed with 2 teaspoon of lemon juice in a glass of warm water. Fresh lemon juice restores the pH level in the body, cleanses the system and provides important nutrients like Vitamin C, riboflavin and Vitamin B. This tonic also acts as a blood purifier to clear the liver by helping it to produce more bile to treat stomach disorders like acid reflux and ulcers.

7.  Honey and lemon can also treat blackheads.

Cut a lime into two halves, add a dollop of honey onto one half and rub it on your skin emphasizing on affected spots, in circular motions for 10 minutes. Let it stay for 15 minutes and then wash it off.

8.  Honey and lemon face mask can also treat oily skin and keep the skin soft and smooth.

Honey is a natural humectant which attracts and retains moisture in the skin to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized.

9.  Honey and lemon are also effective in treating wounds and insects bites.

Both honey and lemon are natural antiseptics which heal minor wounds, prevent infections and expedite healing. Honey works mainly through its sugar content which kills microorganisms, while lemon prevents the dwelling of bacteria. Thus, drink lemon and honey tonic regularly if you suffer from wounds or infections.

10.  Honey is a common ingredient present in various natural skin remedies.

It is mainly used to give a paste-like consistency to herbal face packs. Honey and lemon face pack can also be used as a tightening face mask. Both contain antioxidants which delay the signs of ageing like wrinkles, fine line and age spots. Apply honey and lemon face pack thrice a week to notice a difference in the texture and overall health of the skin.

      Lemon does sting so you could dilute it a little to make it more tolerable. Insects shouldn’t be something to worry about unless you’re in a garden or park witht the mask on which is highly unlikely unless well you have a hive nearby I guess. Hope this helps!
