Let’s face it; water is great, in fact it’s phenomenal! However, drinking plain water all day long can get a little monotonous. Often people add flavor to water in the form of chemically altered, color died, sugar coated crystals. A healthier, and I would say, more refreshing alternative is opting for organic herbal teas to spice up your water routine.
Rooibos tea in particular has become one of my latest obsessions. My go-to Rooibos is one I found at Trader Joe’s. It’s a naturally decaffeinated Organic Spiced Rooibos Ruby Red Chai, and it smells and tastes delicious, especially on a chilly winter afternoon.
Not only does rooibos make for a decadent deviation from plain water, but it also offers many benefits as a beauty beverage!
It helps beat bloating, and let’s be honest, who wants to feel weighed down with excess water. So help trim your tummy by getting rid of that bloat!
It promotes digestion, encouraging your body to rid itself of the toxic sludge built up in your colon. This helps reduce bloating but also enhances your beauty! Toxins in your body speed up the body’s aging processes, giving way to fine lines, wrinkles, dry skin and baggy eyes.
It enhances your skin’s youthful glow, by helping slowing down the aging process and preventing typical signs of aging. It also contains powerful flavonoid antioxidants that bind to compounds that cause skin breakdown and wrinkles.
It supports detoxification, by aiding in regeneration of cells in the liver, your body’s main detox organ.
Who knew that such a delicate and delicious cup of tea could have such a powerful impact on beauty?!
