We all know there are endless benefits to getting your daily quota of water. Staying hydrated can reduce dry eyes, red eyes and even puffy eyelids. There is only one issue, that most of us can agree with…drinking plain water becomes very boring and unappealing. Here is a trick to encourage yourself to drink more water.
Follow these simple steps to create a refreshing and delicious infused water for you and the whole family. These drinks are especially great to have on hand during active sports play, instead of sugar filled sports drinks.
