Lemons are rich in vitamin C and potassium, aiding your digestion and clearing toxins from your blood - keeping your skin clean + clear.  Copal Clean Beauty, founder Jennie Fresa begins each morning with 1 cup of water, ½ of fresh lemon juice, 1 dash of turmeric or cinnamon. Make sure + wait 30 minutes before eating to get the full benefits.

Another go to - clementines are also a great option to aid your digestion. Those little "cuties" contain alkaline minerals that help balance the body after digestion. Add them to your daily juice or smoothie, or simply as an afternoon snack.

If you are looking to achieve clear, glowing and blemish-free skin, lemons, limes or grapefruits need to be included in your diet and daily routine. The vitamin C found in citrus fruits helps destroy free radicals in your body, providing a radiant glow to your skin.

If you have uneven skin tone, citrus can help with those, too. The potassium in grapefruit helps to smooth wrinkles and age spots and provides a protective shield against UV rays. The amino acids make the skin firm and soft. Make sure + add Indie Lee's Coconut Citrus Scrubto your beauty routine to keep that summer glow all season long!
