Feeling bloated? Is there water retention near your belly? Drink more water. The more you drink, the better the fluid balance in your body. Besides, water offers a host of benefits for beauty and health. Try adding a bit of cucumber juice or lime to your water to ensure you drink more. This way, you get the goodness of water as well as the natural additives.
Fruit Juices- Watermelon and Pineapple
Drink some fresh and healthy fruit juices instead of your sugar-filled tea or coffee for the day. Watermelon and pineapple are particularly effective—the former is a natural hydrator for the body and rich in nutrients, while the latter contains bromelain, which breaks down protein and reduces bloating. Ensure that you have these without sugar or artificial additives.
Combine any fruit and vegetable and whip up a healthy drink. Not only will it deter you from mid-meal snacking, but it will also help you get that glow on your skin. It's ideal to mix citrus fruits with tomatoes, carrots and beetroot.
