Morning drinks play an important role in body metabolism and the stomach-cleansing process.

Starting the day with sipping one or two litres of water helps clear all metabolic waste from the body and, in turn, leads to clear skin. Similarly, there are other morning drinks that are helpful for getting clear and healthy skin for both men and women.

With that being said, here are five essential drinks that you can start your day with for a glowing and healthy skin.

1. Water therapy

Drinking a good amount of water gives wonderful results. Our body consists of 75 per cent water in the form of fluids, and water has several functions that keep skin clean and healthy; dehydration, on the other hand, makes our skin dry and itchy. Consuming an average of 4.5 to 5.5 litres of water daily boosts your body with minerals and oxygen carriers, releases all toxins from it, and results in maintaining the electrolyte balance of the body with skin moisturisers, preventing acne.

2. Honey and lemon water

Add two to three spoons of honey and a spoon of lemon juice to water as this acts as an electrolyte and produces antioxidants and anti-ageing components. It helps in cleaning out harmful toxins from your body and also helps in weight loss. While honey has anti-ageing nutrients that keep your skin moisturised, lemon contains vitamin C that helps in new cell and skin rejuvenation.

3. Fruit juices

Fruits are rich in vitamins and micronutrients. Fruits like carrots, beetroots, pomegranate and even vegetables like sweet potato have rich minerals and vitamins that help in preventing acne and boost healthy skin. Carrot and beetroot contain vitamin A that prevents acne, wrinkles and pigmentation, and helps maintain healthy skin, Beetroot juice provides good blood circulation and keeps skin healthy. Even salads, of tomatoes and cucumbers, can also prevent acne if these salads are included in one’s regular diet.

4. Green tea

If you are a tea lover, add green tea or lemon tea to your diet. It prevents acne and contains vitamin C along with other nutrients that keep skin naturally healthy and glowing.

5. Turmeric milk

Turmeric is a traditional and Ayurvedic medicine that acts as an antibiotic and antiviral agent. It is rich in antioxidants that retard the ageing process. Adding one spoon of turmeric to milk or hot water every morning can give good results for healthy and glowing skin.
