Dry itchy skin can be soothed and protected by any of our amazing lotions and antioxidant rich Vitamin C Serum can give your skin that fighting chance in the war against wrinkles and aging.
But that's not the only thing you can do to help give your skin a healthy glow.
"You are what you eat" is a phrase that I remember hearing throughout my life, and it's for a good reason. Clean living is visible in what you eat by not only how you feel but how healthy your skin can be.
One way I love to combat dry, summer skin is to stay hydrated and sometimes water alone isn't enough.
Here are 4 drinks that I add to my summer drink routine and that I'd love to share with you.
1. Cucumber Water
Cut a whole cucumber into slices and flop in a large jar of water. Add some salt, stir well and refrigerate overnight. (I have one glass every day.)
2. Cucumber Juice
Grate one cucumber and collect its juice. Press the grated cucumber further with hands or with the back of a spoon to squeeze out more juice. Sprinkle some salt and few drops of lemon juice (or add slices), and drink cucumber juice fresh or with ice or after it's cooled in the refrigerator.
3. Cucumber Mint Ginger Drink
Peel and dice one cucumber, peel and chop 1 inch ginger. Put them in a blender, add 4-5 crushed or muddled mint leaves and a glass of water. Blend them till they turn into juice. Throw in some lemon slices and store the drink in fridge. Serve chilled. Cucumber, lemon, mint and ginger - all these healthy foods are full of antioxidants and anti-bacterial properties.
4. Cucumber Honey Lemonade
Take out juice of one cucumber and pour in a glass. Add one tablespoon of honey, 1 teaspoon of black salt and juice of half a lemon. You can also reduce the amount of water and add some carbonated water or soda to it. Stir well. Top it with ice cubes and enjoy this drink to cool down your senses.
Stay hydrated and smooth this summer!
