Detoxifying For A Healthy Skin

Body toxins make you age faster. By drinking warm water, the temperature of the body rises, thereby causing us to sweat more often. All your toxins and free radicals get flushed away with your sweat.

Squeeze some lemon juice, honey, add some ginger, cucumber, mint leaves, etc, in your warm water. This drink can help you sweat out more of your body toxins.

 

It Clears Your Throat And Nasal Congestion

Warm water is a natural remedy to treat sore throat and your common ailments such as cough and cold. It also helps in clearing your nasal congestion. You can add either lemon, honey, ginger, basil leaf juice or some aloe vera juice for a quick relief.

Relief In Menstrual Cramps

Not only a hot water bag eases out the pain in those days, but even drinking warm water relaxes your abdominal muscles, thus relieving your menstrual pain. Add some raspberry leaf tea to your glass of warm water for an instant relief.

Drink Water For Soft, Shiny Hair

Drinking warm water will also result in giving you a softer shinier mane. Warm water energises and activates the nerve endings in your hair roots. It restores the natural vitality and health of your hair. Since warm water activates the hair roots, it results in accelerating your hair growth. Add honey and lemon juice to your glass of warm water for a soft, shiny hair.

Aids In Better Digestion

Having a glass of warm water every morning on an empty stomach can help your body to detoxify any remaining foodstuffs. It also makes the movement of the particles more smoother and less painful through the intestines, thus helping in a smoother bowel function.
