If you want clearer skin, you’re going to need to up your intake of water. If the thought of plain H2O bores you, you’ll be excited to know that there are many ways to infuse flavor into your new beverage of choice. An infuser water bottle makes it easy for you to enjoy recipes such as Alluring Soul’s recipe for Hydrating Watermelon Detox Water for Clear Skin.
There are many reasons why watermelon is the perfect fruit to infuse water with. For example, it contains 92% water which helps further cleanse the skin. It’s also packed with potassium and Vitamins A, B, and C. Watermelon also is full of lycopene, an antioxidant that fights against cancer-causing free radicals.
The fruit adds sweetness to water without artificially flavoring it, too. If you lean towards juices and other sweetened drinks to get you through the day, you’ll find the combination of watermelon, mint, and lime to be clean and refreshing. It’s the perfect drink to sip on year round in an infuser bottle, but it is best in the warmer months of the year when watermelon is in season.
What you need to get started is the following readily available ingredients:
A Hydracy Infuser Water Bottle or Infuser Water Pitcher.
This is the vessel that will be used to infuse the water with its incredible ingredients.
Filtered Cold Water.
Make sure it’s the right temperature and filtered to remove any impurities if you’re using tap.
Small Chunks of Watermelon.
Remove it from the rind and cut small enough chunks to fit into the infuser part of your water bottle.
Fresh Mint Leaves.
You can gently crush them with a mortar and pestle to help release their flavor.
Slices of Lime.
Leave the rind on the slices because it makes them easier to remove from the bottle to discard.
Gathering the ingredients in advance helps you make larger quantities of the water with ease. You won’t be without your DIY vitamin water whenever you want it. You can fill your water bottle with the concoction and head out the door for work, school, the gym or even the doctor’s office.
How to Make Detox Water Using an Infuser Bottle
Mix the ingredients together in the Infuser Water Bottle or Water Pitcher. You’ll need to remove the infuser first and add all the ingredients except for the water into it. Once it has been placed back into the bottle, add water and put it in the fridge.
For the perfect infused water, it’s recommended to leave this recipe to chill for one to two hours before removing the bottle to drink from. The water stays good for up to 48 hours before needing to be made again.
The Benefits of Drinking More Water
Drinking more water has its benefits. In addition to helping clear your skin by flushing out nasty toxins, it also gives you energy and relieves symptoms of fatigue, promotes weight loss, helps you stay regular, gives your immune system a boost, fights headache and dehydration, increases your mood, and saves you money on other bottled beverages. Having your own infuser bottle to refill is not only economically responsible, it’s environmentally responsible, too. Tip, sip, and enjoy a healthier body this year.
