The rise in popularity for infusing waters is no surprise really when you consider both the obvious health benefits and feel-good flavours that bloggers across the globe are whipping up for us all to try. Water equals hydration, which means only good things for our bodies both on the inside and out. On the visual front, water still stands as our best natural resource for keeping our complexions fresh and gorgeous, whilst also flushing away all those pesky toxins that gather internally on a daily basis. Quite simply, there is nothing negative to say about this precious substance – especially when it's not doused in sugar and fake flavours.
Infused waters bursting with natural antioxidants and detoxifying goodness guarantee improvements to your skins appearance and elasticity almost immediately according to research on the website infusedwaters.com
and this is all down to the clever mix of herbs and fruit blended together in the recipes such websites have perfected. More unusal benefits to staying hydrated listed on this website include: the transportation of oxygen around the body, protection of organs to keep them functioning effectively and joint lubrication to help them manoeuvre easily. Interesting facts that many of us probably do not consciously consider on a daily basis... that is of course, until we all start infusing! A trend that in our opinion is here to stay.
But as they say, the proof is in the pudding, so here’s a few tasty visual’s and delicious recipe ideas we've found online to tickle your tastebuds with and adapt for when on the go (click web links for full details)...
