When life gives you lemons...don't make lemonade! Make lemon water.

Yeah, you read that right. Make lemon water instead. My sister and I gave in to our curiosity and decided to transform our drinking water at home to lemon water.  Coincidentally, I came across one online article that discussed the benefits of putting lemon in your water.  Lemon and water have several similarities such as it helps clean your insides by flushing out the toxins in your system and both have an alkalizing effect. Now, can you imagine the positive effects of combining lemon + water? If you still can't, we've listed what lemon water is good for.

1. Skin
When you get rid of toxic waste in your system, your skin will show it first! Your skin will be the first thing you notice cause it looks clear and not sallow and full of acne.

2. Stomach
When mixed with hot water, it helps the stomach by relieving the telltale signs of indigestion. Regular intake of lemon water can help constipated girls to go potty more efficiently.

3. Throat
Because of its anti-bacterial property, it aids in curing your throat infections and even some dental problems such as that sudden toothache.

4. High Blood Pressure
Its high potassium content works wonders for those with heart problems. It reduces mental stress and depression and it also helps relieve that dizzy, nauseous feeling that is possibly due to high blood pressure.
5.Weight loss
If you drink a cup of lemon water then you have a great fat burner but if you combine it with a healthy diet and 30 minutes of exercise it can have amazing results.

Reminder: Drink lemon water NOT lemonade. Lemonade usually contains lots of sugar and would defeat the purpose of detoxifying you.

According to what I read online, any citrus fruit would do but your best bet would be lemons and grapefruits. :)
