Over the years I've found that eating high-water content fruits and veggies makes a huge difference in helping my skin stay soft in our dry Colorado climate.  But beyond the fruits and veggies, pure clean water is by far the best thing we can do for our skin (regardless of what climate you're in).  It's always the simple things that are the most effective!

Staying well hydrated does wonders for my skin.  In fact, if I start to feel my face getting dry, I know it's time for a tall glass of water.  But I don't always enjoy forcing it down.  So my solution?  I like to add slices of fruit to a pitcher of water for a subtle hint of flavor and fragrant aroma.  Always does the trick!

Here's a simple recipe from my SpaFusion Cleanse ebook that makes getting that 8 glasses of water down oh so irresistible!  This lovely infusion has a light, delicate strawberry flavor and makes a delightful summer beverage.

Lemon Balm Strawberry Water

1 small pitcher of water
1 Tbsp lemon juice

2 strawberries, thinly sliced into rounds

Refrigerate 20 minutes before serving.  Try adding edible flowers for a nice, refreshing touch!


  1. ooo that sounds great:) last summer i started adding slices of cucumbers to water pitchers and it was incredibly did i not think of adding other fruits to my water?

  2. Yum! Pretty and refreshing! But may I ask what did you add to make it look green? Is there a leaf in it and the light is reflecting?


  3. heehee, you'll love it.. it's tasty! cucumber is awesome too ;-)

  4. Oh, that's just the color of the pitcher's glass ;-)
