The Benefits Of Adding Fruit To Your Water And Skincare
If there is one thing we should all be doing is keeping our bodies adequately hydrated, and we at Posie Cosmetics like to do this is by adding fruit to our water and skincare. However, we have noticed that when most people think of staying hydrated, they usually assume drinking water. According to the CDC, daily fluid intake is defined as the amount of water consumed from fruits and vegetables, drinking water, and other beverages, not just water.
Keeping hydrated is not beneficial only for the body but for the skin. On the opposite side of the spectrum, being dehydrated affects the health of your heart, kidney, metabolizing fat, it can even cause premature aging.
How many times have you heard, "Make sure you're drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day”? Probably more times than you can count. But what if you don't like the taste of water or find drinking plain ol' water to be boring. And if we find something boring, we tend not to partake as much as we should. So, to help you to drink more H20, Posie Cosmetics is sharing some ways you can get excited about drinking water by infusing it with fruit. By adding fruit to your water, you can get all the flavor minus the calories, refined sugar, and artificial sweeteners.
Fruits are also a powerhouse of vitamins and antioxidants that your skin so thoroughly deserves to stay looking healthy and youthful. To prove it, we want to share how certain fruits can be a healthy option for your skin. See these below, with some fruit infused water and fruit enriched skincare.
Drinking-Water Infused With Fruit
Our skin is the largest organ primarily made of water—when it's deprived of water, it suffers, like releasing hormones that lead to inflammation and speed up aging. And who wants that? The answer is no one.
Also, drinking water with fruit is a fantastic way to flush out toxins and boost skin health. Hence, what better way to drink your way to gorgeous skin than by adding fruits with the most skin-enhancing ingredients, for example.
If you want gorgeous glowing skin, lemons can help to give you a detoxification boost along with...
Helping with digestion by increasing the liver's enzymes, ultimately improving the skin's overall appearance.
- Lemons contain alpha hydroxy acid, which is great for anti-aging.
- Enriched with antibacterial properties, making lemons extremely useful when it comes to blemishes.
- Lemons are high in vitamin C, helping to destroy free radicals and toxins.
The Antioxidant Boost
