Hydrating your skin daily is as important as breathing. Especially during the seasonal transitions, when our skin is moisture depleted, leaving us with a tight, dry, and dull complexion. Not stressed enough, drinking water is the key to beautiful flawless and yes, hydrated skin.
Not everyone looks forward to drinking a simple glass of water and in fact, in a survey of over 2800 people, researchers at Rockefeller University discovered that only around 34% of people drink enough water on a daily basis.
While there are many excuses for not wanting to drink water, there is one reason that stands out far more prominently than any other:
“Water is boring.”
This week’s Eating For Beauty Recipe brings you bright, delicious, and healthy ways to take the “boring” out of drinking water so that you will actually want to drink it and drink more of it!
Infusing water with fresh fruits, veggies and herbs makes it more hydrating, flavorful, and even adds more benefits.
Here are our favorite fruit-infused waters that will hydrate your skin in no time. All you have to do is pick, slice or cube up the ingredients and drop it into your cool glass of water. Let it infuse overnight for even more flavor.
Strawberry + Cucumber + Herb
Cucumbers are known as the super hydrators while strawberries add antioxidant ellagic acid that works against UV damage and prevent collagen destruction. The acidic nature of the fruit also enables it to remove excess oil in the skin, making it great for those who have oily skin types. Adding fresh rosemary or thyme make it even tastier!
Blackberry + Lemon
Blackberries are comprised of more than 85% water with an abundant dose of fiber. Both which are essential to detoxify the body and maintain the elasticity of the skin. Lemon water is universally known as the ultimate digestion and detoxification beverage, but it also helps rejuvenate skin and heal the body via its vitamin C and antioxidant contents.
