This is so great! I'm always looking for a way to reenergize easily in the summer, and this seems like it might be it!
The idea of keeping the face refreshed is great but keep in mind that high heat such as hot water might kill the enzymes found in ascorbic acid which is vitamin C itself. Vitamin C is excellent for skincare and the aging process. I however would grate the tabs and let it sit in the same lemon water.
