Watermelon infused water detox recipe to hydrate and keep you healthy
Hi, I am Naveena, and at the beginning of this year, I promised myself like everyone else to live a healthier life. I am looking forward to having a healthy body, mind, and soul and lots of energy this year. For that, you need to drink lots of water as our body is 70% water, and it helps keep diseases away by flushing out toxins from our body.
Unfortunately, like me, many people forget to drink water or don’t like the taste of plain water. Detox water can save people like us, and one of my favourite detox water is watermelon infused water. Detoxing is one of the best things to include in your morning ritual. It not only helps you feel hydrated and refreshed but also flushes out toxins in your body. It also keeps your body healthy and aids in weight loss.
