Drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day is essential for your overall health! Not just for losing weight, not just for your glowing skin but for your physical health as well. Because drinking the essential amount of water can easily rid your body of harmful toxins that could have become a disease or just caused your body some discomfort in the long run! Having said that, water does help in losing weight and when you’re healthy your face happens to be glowing by itself. Hence I thought, if drinking sufficient water everyday is essential, why not take full advantage of it? I am talking about Detox water!

Many of you might be familiar with the term Detox water. It’s nothing complicated or fancy. You can easily make it in your kitchen in 5 minutes! In easy words, Detox water is just fruit infused water! You take some fruits of your choice, a citrus fruit & some herbs and infuse them in the water overnight. Citrus fruit is a must because it has high acidity and burns fats faster and increases metabolism.

You can mix & replace the ingredients according to your taste and preference. Just remember the basic recipe! One citrus fruit, a few other Fruits of your choice, Herbs (optional), Honey/Cinnamon/Ginger.

You can drink the water and refill it one more time during the day. But make sure you empty the content in 24 hours. Make fresh detox water every day!

My favourite among all of these would definitely be the Lemon, Cucumber, Mint leaves & Honey detox water. I prefer drinking a glass of Detox water in the mornings on empty stomach. I have my breakfast after almost an hour.
