While I swear by natural beauty products to keep my skin looking great, without combining them with proper rest, good nutritional choices, and ample hydration, your skin will not glow as vibrantly. Dehydrated skin appears sallow, tired, and can be oily with dry patches. It is actually more prone to breakouts because, in attempting to hydrate itself, it creates more oil. Ok, beauty queens – we know what that means, right?
Sometimes, I jokingly claim that the elixir of life is wine. However, it’s really water. The human brain and heart mimic the Earth in its need for water. According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water. The earth is 71% water. Clearly, all elements of nature (including us) depend on water.
But I Hate Plain Water…
Want to get more water, but despise plain water? Try fruit-infused water. You can either use an infuser pitcher, an infuser bottle, or just a regular glass pitcher. I like that, though. I even eat the fruit afterwards.
This fruit infused water is as beautiful as it is delicious. If you want it a little sweeter, add your favorite all-natural low-calorie sweetener (like Monkfruit or real stevia).
Drink Fruit Infused water for Beautiful Skin
I also like to shake this recipe up a bit and use pears instead of apples. Sometimes, I will use lemons instead of limes, as well. All of these fruits are high in pectin, vitamin C, and biotin, which helps the skin produce more collagen (as does drinking water). Collagen helps keep the skin young, firm, and glowing. It also helps the skin repair itself after injury – so, yeah, it’s kind of important!
Do something beautiful for yourself. Feeling adventurous? Here are some more fruits and veggies that make the skin glow and put the rosy back in the cheeks!
We enjoy hosting parties and my husband and I are both avid gamers. You can find me on PS4 as SunshineFlaGirl. We also play tabletop RPGs and eurogames.
