Fruit and herb infused waters are the perfect way to quench your thirst while adding a delicious twist to your skin hydration routine.

Most people do not get enough water throughout the day. We are raisins. Walking raisins.

You do need to hydrate skin externally, but if your body is dehydrated, no amount of product is going to fix that. Dehydration can lead to dull, dry skin, dark circles under the eyes, fine lines and flakiness. 

Ew, let's get hydrated.

Here are a few of my faves:

  • Cucumber-Mint: A classic refreshing combination. The crispness of the mint with the coolness of the cucumber uplifts and revitalizes.
  • Strawberry-Mint: For a sweeter mint option. The sweetness of strawberries combined with the coolness of mint will leave you feeling refreshed and satisfied.
  • Pineapple-Coconut: If you like Pina coladas...The sweet and tropical flavors of pineapple and coconut will make you feel like you're sitting on a beach sipping a cocktail.
These infused waters are packed with natural vitamins and minerals and calorie-free, making them a great alternative to sugary drinks. Plus, they are easy to make and can be customized to your taste preferences.

How to Make Fruit Infused Water

Making fruit infused water is super simple...

1. Choose your fruits

Pick your favorite fruits that have a high water content such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, watermelon, cucumber, oranges, lemons, and limes.

2. Wash and slice the fruits & chop the herbs

Rinse the fruits and herbs under running water and slice them into thin pieces or small chunks to allow the flavor to infuse better. It's easiest to cut the herbs up with kitchen shears. While you can use them whole, cutting them releases more flavor.

3. Add fruits to a pitcher or water bottle

Place the sliced fruits and chopped herbs into a pitcher or water bottle. 

4. Fill with water

Fill the pitcher or bottle with water, and ensure the fruits are fully submerged in the water. Use cold water to keep the fruits fresh.

5. Let it infuse 

Leave the pitcher or bottle in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or overnight to allow the fruits to infuse and impart their flavor into the water.

6. Enjoy!

Once the water is infused, give it a gentle stir and pour it into a glass or bottle, using a strainer to remove any fruit pieces if necessary. Enjoy your refreshing and flavorful fruit infused water!

Remember to consume it within 2-3 days and keep it refrigerated.
