We can all agree to the fact that we need to drink more (lots more) water every day. Being dehydrated is not just bad for your overall health, but it is also a sure-shot way to bring your beauty game down.

You think you’re doing enough for your skin with all the high-end skincare products you so religiously apply, but you couldn’t be more mistaken. If you are guilty of not drinking enough water, more likely than not, your skin is never going to reach its full potential. Hence, if setting regular reminders on your phone haven’t been successful enough in making you drink your quota of water, then maybe it is time to give detox water a try.

Detox water is nothing but your usual H2O that is infused with certain fruits and veggies to help you flush out toxins from your system and help it function better. Because of the infused ingredients, this water is the perfect way to get all the necessary nutrients required for clear, glowing skin. Since healthy skin is as much a result of what you put inside your body as what you apply on the outside, drinking this detox water can really work wonders.

So, if you’re ready to try it, here is one super amazing detox water recipe that is extremely yummy too. You just might catch yourself sipping on it all day long.
