10 Gorgeous Detox Waters and How They Help You Get Your Glow on

detoxcollage

Keeping the body well-hydrated can be a real chore.  We all know how much water we’re supposed to drink in a day, but let’s face it, water can be so bland and boring. Since our bodies are about 60 percent water, we need to maintain fluid levels to function at an optimal level. Walking around in a dehydrated state can make us feel lethargic, irritated, and headachy. So how do we get water in our bodies when we just don’t feel like downing the plain stuff? The answer is simple — give your water the spa treatment. If you’ve ever been to a luxurious spa, you’ll notice the water is infused with fragrant herbs, vibrant fruits, and fresh veggies (and it’s usually served in a beautiful glass pitcher). Not only do these add-ins taste fantastic, they might just have properties that benefit your body. Give any of these 10 detox waters a try — your body will thank you.
