It’s no secret that staying well-hydrated might be the best (and cheapest!) natural beauty trick in the book. But let’s be honest — getting in eight glasses a day of plain water can be a little, um, boring. If you’re having a tough time putting down the chemical-laden Diet Coke or Crystal Light, consider a few of these natural mix-ins for fancy, flavored water:
Citrus wedges – Pick your favorite & squeeze away!
Herbal tea – Yes, you can brew it in cold water.
Ginger root slices – Spicy & exotic.
Sliced cucumber – Just like a day at the spa.
Mint leaves – Muddle first. So refreshing!
Honeydew melon – Satisfies that sweet tooth.
Hibiscus leaves – Steep for a south-of-the-border flavor.
Pineapple slices – Almost as good as a pina colada. Almost.
If still water doesn’t float your boat, try a sparkling variety for more fun. I’m also obsessed with combining orange + mint. Have you made your own healthy bevvies? What are some of your favorite flavors? —Hannah
