I have not been keeping hydrated this summer. Probably, I drink about half the water that I should. And, we all know that water is so good for plump and healthy skin, weight loss, less achey muscles and generally feeling much better. So, to get myself on the band wagon, I started to turn things up a notch.

I have found that if you add a little sex appeal to your daily water intake, you are much more likely to drink it down. Start by choosing a pretty vessel. Fill it up with fresh, filtered water. Slice up some citrus fruit (I used grapefruit that was too sour to eat and some lemon) and toss it in the water. Or, instead of citrus, try thin, cucumber slices. Go ahead and splash a few ice cubes into the mix so that the outside of the pitcher gets a little slick with perspiration.

Now just see how much you reach for that sexy water. I bet, like me, you will double your intake in no time.
