My morning routine starts the night before, hear me out. Every evening before going to bed my sister and I make a nourishing skin tonic. Slices of fresh lemon, turmeric and ginger are splashed with freshly boiled water and encapsulated in a thermal flask.
The herbal brew then sits on my window seal, infusing whilst I get my beauty sleep. In the morning the skin tonic is still hot and is a great way to rehydrate your skin and your body after 8 hours of sleep.
Lemon is rich in antioxidants and vitamin c that work to flush out toxins and brighten the skin. Turmeric, contains curcumin a potent natural anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant component that helps to boosts your natural immunity and aids in reducing stress within the body. Ginger improves blood circulation throughout the body and to your skin. Increased oxygen can help to look brighter and firmer. Ginger also aids in digestion and supports your immune system helping to detox the body.
Fancy a cuppa after your beauty sleep? Reach for this nutritious tonic and reap the skin and health benefits all before you get out of bed. Sounds like a dream
