I’m not sure what to call this drink..lemon water? Green tea with lemon, honey, cayenne, and cinnamon? Yeah… so I just call it “Hello Beautiful” morning tea because I drink it first thing in the morning and it makes my skin look sooooo pretty and radiant when I drink it consistently.
I usually always slack off when I run out of fresh lemons but I’m determined to keep up with it this year. There are so many benefits to the ingredients in this tea. Just do a google search and you will be flooded with information about it helping with circulation, acne, weight loss, cholesterol, diseases, detoxing, and all kinda good stuff.
Drink it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. It’s suppose to help with metabolism a lot and get your body in motion and feeling fabulous! Honestly I’m not sure how I feel about it as a “weight management” drink because I use it to detox my skin.
It works great at evening out my skin tone. I also use plain green tea as a facial toner. It’s so amazing!!
Watch me make this “Good Morning Beautiful” Morning Tea from start to finish!
