6 great uses for lemons, for beauty, home and health.
Freshen your breath!
Squeeze a few drops of lemon juice on your tongue, swish and swallow. Not only can this lower pH levels, but it also kills stinky-breath causing bacteria.
Moisturize your cara (face)!
Don’t let the cold weather get your skin down. Mix even parts of lemon juice and honey. Apply to your cara y cuello, (face and neck), and relax for 10 minutes. Rinse off with cold water and you’re good to go.
Add a few lemon peels to your winter fire or let them boil on the stove. There’s nothing quite like a fresh, citrus scent, floating through the air.
Mix equal parts of lemon juice and water, pour into a spray bottle and voilà, you have your own all-purpose cleaner.
New year, clean body
Lemon water is a great detoxifier for your body. Squeeze the juice from half of a lemon in your water. For added flavor, cut up the remainder of the lemon and toss into the glass.
And my personal favorite…
Squash a cold
Put 1 Tbsp of freshly grated ginger in boiling water and steep for 3 minutes. In a mug place 1 Tbsp each of lemon juice and honey. Strain the ginger tea into the mug, stir and say adios to that cold!
How do you use lemons? Please share!

Ok, so día 5 of my 30 in 30 Challenge was a busy one. My son woke up sick, so I didn’t get my usual morning workout in. Instead, after a doctor’s appointment and a run to the pharmacy I was able to (kind of) do the Crunch Cardio Salsa workout DVD. I say “kind of” because as I danced around my son tried to walk through my legs, (he’s obsessed with “tunnels” these days). Anyway, I certainly did move my body.
How about you? How is the Challenge going for you and what did YOU do today to move your body and inspire others to do so?

Today is National wear Red Day! Please join me in wearing red in order to raise awareness of the risks of heart disease in women, and all Americans. Did you know that heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the USA? And that 1 in 3 women die of heart disease each year? (That’s 1 per minute). It’s so sad but true. Therefore, I am dedicating my time this month to be an expert blogger for the Blog Your Heart Out campaign. In conjunction with the National Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Campaign I am helping raise awareness of the prevalence of heart disease in American women and sharing resources to help YOU prevent heart disease in yourself, in your family and amongst your friends.
So please put on something RED and make a difference today and help me spread the word about the importance of heart health! Please Click Here for more information on how you can join me this month and GO RED FOR WOMEN!
