Infused Water for Clear Skin
Welcome back to our natural skincare blog. As summer approaches and we’re on our Healthy Skin Is In journey, don’t forget to like, comment, and share your healthy skin journey tips and tricks. We’re diving into the concept of infused water and its benefits on the skin. In case you’re wondering what that means, well, it’s quite simple, it is when you soak or include fruits into your water. What fruits exactly? Sometimes this can range from lemons to kiwi and even strawberries. When we think of each fruit individually, we find that they each have their specific benefits. You may have gone to the gym or headed out with friends and noticed that someone is carrying around a jug of infused water. For all of our Clean Beauty Babes who visit us frequently, you know that we are here to educate you, so here is the reason why.
The purpose of infused water or detox water as some would call it is nothing but cubed and cut pieces of fruits and vegetables immersed in a pitcher or bottle of cold water. Most people aim to lose weight but eat healthy at the same time, some use it for its skincare benefits. The concept of the detox is not only to cleanse your body of impurities to help with better digestion but to also help with skin irritations. One of the great things about infused water is that it does not contain any ounce of calories which makes it ideal for people opting for diet plans for weight loss. It is always best to make your infused water at home.
Because infused water is packed with benefits it can help serve as an anti-aging remedy. In other words, it can help to slow down aging because if its substantial antioxidants, it will keep the skin moisturized and plump. Due to this, you may notice your skin appearing to be smoother and brighter. Infused water can last for up to one week and is a simple and delicious way to care for your body. I am a huge fan of cucumbers, lemons, and lime in my infused water. Lemons can do the following, support heart health, help control weight, prevent kidney stones, protect against anemia and improve your digestive health.
Cucumbers on the other hand can help to keep you hydrated, provides extra vitamins and minerals, brings down your blood pressure, curbs appetite and of course, soothes the skin. Staying hydrated will help your skin stay supple and smoother and adding cucumbers means you’re getting extra nutrients that help even more. Cucumbers, like silica, provide health benefits to the skin. A recommended item to use in addition to this is our Ultra-Calming Face Wash – With this, you can experience an ultra-calming effect. It helps to regulate hyperactivity of the sebaceous glands while offering antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits. Additionally, cucumbers can help with your muscles. Whether you’re just looking to focus on your skincare or looking to add a strength training regimen to your routine, cucumbers in your water is a great idea.

Are you willing to try infused water and share your results with us? The flavor is great right away and so if you’re in a hurry you can thinly slice a lemon and cucumber and place them at the bottom of the pitcher. Use a wooden spoon (or any spoon of your choice) to lightly mash the cucumber and lemon to release their juices. Afterward, add 8 cups of cold water and refrigerate at least one hour before serving. Remember, this can last for up to one week, so keep refilling as needed, but be sure to dispose of the lemon and cucumber after that.
The most important thing you can do is invest in a variety of organic flavors. These are free from harmful particles – like pesticides – that could otherwise cause health problems. Ever heard the impression, “You are what you eat”? Well, that is what infused water means. Healthy skin starts with healthy foods containing vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are good for the body and your skin.
