Better Beverages For A Healthier Life
Summer is here, and while we’re loving the longer daylight hours, we’re not looking forward to the heat. Staying hydrated is key, but after chugging our third bottle of water in a day, it’s tempting to indulge in something more flavorful. A lot of those smoothies and fruit juices, though, are packed with sugar to make them taste good—and when the pressure to keep a beach bod is constantly on our minds, that’s not what we want to be putting into our systems.
Dirty Lemon is offering bottled drinks that may be the answer. The health-conscious collection includes a collagen-packed beauty elixir with lemon juice and cayenne, an activated charcoal detox drink with ginger and dandelion root, an antioxidant-laced anti-aging tonic with rose and hibiscus, and other similar beverages. All of them come in bold, squat bottles that are sure to stand out. If you check out the brand’s Instagram, they’ve got some pretty provocative ads, too.
Dirty Lemon is keen on promoting its drinks’ purported health benefits, taking care to explain key ingredients on its otherwise-minimalist website. We’ll admit we’re a bit skeptical—we’ve never heard of a real-life concoction that can singlehandedly improve your well-being—but these drinks are unlikely to do any harm, either. The ingredients are for the most part familiar, and best of all, there’s no added sugar.
The best way to think about these drinks is as guiltless guilty pleasures: eye-catching bottles that will look good in your bag, and a formula of tasty stuff that will keep you looking good. Pop one into your fridge and take it out with you on a day to the beach.
