Hydrate Your Skin From Out as well as In: Fruit Infused Water

Posted by Vida Mercado on

It is no secret that keeping hydrated is key to both health and beauty. And everyone knows about that 8X8 rule, drink eight 8oz glasses of water a day, which is about 2 liters, but, of course, recommended amount could be more or less depending on your height, your built, heck, even on where you are in the world.

 

So how do you know if you are getting enough water every day? One way to tell is by taking a peek at your pee. That’s right. The color of your urine can be a pretty good indicator. If it is clear or light yellow, then you are good to go. The darker it is, the more glasses of water you should be drinking. However, vitamins and medication may be a factor to consider.

 

Anyway, the bottom line is that you need to drink lots of water. You’ll feel better and look better. Unfortunately, most people don’t even come close to that half a gallon mark. And instead of reaching for a glass of water, they opt for soda or juice instead. Although it may taste good, it’s not exactly the best choice, far from, actually. Store bought juice and soda contain an insane amount of sugar.

 

 

Fruit infused water is a great way to add a twist of taste minus the unwanted calories. In fact, here are some of the top benefits of always keeping a cool pitcher ready.

 

Again, because it tastes good, chances are you’ll drink much more water than you already do.

 

Drinking enough water means that you will have a properly hydrated body which then improves blood circulation, digestion, temperature regulation, and flow of nutrients. Do note that dehydration, even just mild, may to lead body aches, the lethargy, and constipation. It does take a toll on your skin and hair too leaving both dry and flaky.

 

Detox. Detox. Detox.

 

Fruit infused water also helps with weight loss. First, because you are drinking more, you will feel fuller, and thus, you will be snacking much less. In fact, if you continuously drink throughout the day, you will notice that even your portion size for your regular meals will decrease. Second, drinking fruit infused water, especially when it contains lemon, helps to speed up your metabolism. And third, it gives you more energy. And when you move more, you burn more.

 

Another great thing about have fruit infused water is that aside from it helping keep hydrated, healthy, and tasting good at the same time, it is super simple to make. The staple would be lemon, of course, but actually, your flavor choices are pretty much limitless. Choose the fruits you like, slice them up, dump them in a pitcher, and you are done. Easy-peasy.

 

But do remember, hydrating the skin works from both inside and out. So be sure to follow a good skincare routine as well. For added moisture, Argan Oil is always a plus. They do call it liquid gold, after all.
