3 Detox Waters

Did you all have a good weekend? How GLORIOUS was the weather?! It’s a shame it never stays like that for more than a few days though.

I spent most of Saturday sitting in the garden and drinking beer, whilst painting my nails, having an Easter photo shoot and developing a thousand new freckles on my face. Honestly, whenever I’m in the sun for more than an hour I swear I turn into a dot to dot puzzle.

Anyway, I have been living off fruit- infused water recently. It’s just such a good way of making sure you get that 2 litres of water a day without it being boring. You can also add some vitamins in there to make it even more beneficial.

Today I want to show you 3 different detox waters which are great for hydrating your body and getting those essential vitamins and minerals into your diet.

WAKE ME UP- LEMON AND GINGER

  • 8-10 ice cubes

This water is the perfect morning antidote, because it contains lemon which helps to cleanse your body of toxins, and ginger which is full of antioxidant and also helps fight against illness. This water will wake you up and get you fresh and ready for the day ahead. Drinking this as soon as you wake up will help kick start your metabolism and make digesting your breakfast much easier on your body.

This water is a great after tea time drink. Blueberries are full of anti oxidants, lemon aids digestion and mint helps to soothe indigestion. This is the perfect water to soothe your body and get it ready for bed.

If you’re like me and you just REALLY love fruit- you can just have a bit of everything!
