Getting your daily glow on is as elemental as water itself. With a few quick #beautyfood additions, you can create your own spa water (like the kind we serve our Savor Spa guests!) in minutes.
We call it #beautywater, and here’s how to create it in your own #beautyfood kitchen:
Take fresh, organic produce, slice it or place it whole in spring water, let it steep while you commute, and sip it throughout the day. It’s that simple! Feel free to experiment with your favorite fruits and veggies, but be sure to try our top picks.
Well known for high levels of vitamin C, citrus fruits are also rich in potassium, folate, and calcium, all essential to healthy skin by providing antioxidants, fiber, hydration, and tissue regeneration. Experiment with colorful flavor combinations of orange, lemon, lime, and grapefruit, and keep the rind on - that’s where the essential oils are.
Cooling, refreshing cucumber contains vitamin C, as well as vitamin K, manganese, and beta-carotene, which provide skin with both acne and wrinkle-fighting benefits, tissue repair, UV protection, and collagen production. Cucumbers are also wonderfully hydrating, and add a smooth, clean flavor.
This ancient spice is well-known for it’s immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory properties, but did you know it can help keep skin clear from the inside out? That’s right, the acne-fighting powers of turmeric are another reason to try a slice of this slightly bitter root in your water. Try combining it with one of the above #beautyfoods to enhance the flavor, or enjoy it alone. Peel this one first, slice thinly, and drink in the benefits!
