Staying hydrated is what we call the ‘low hanging fruit’ of wellness. Having said that, it can be difficult to chug the required amount water every single day. Not to mention, not all of us LOVE the source of all life: water. We’ve created a daily guide on how to mix it up and drink all the right things to not only keep you hydrated but to get gorgeous, glowing skin.
SUNDAY PURSOMA® RITUAL
Step 1: exercise for at least 20 minutes.
Step 3: take a detox bath (we recommend Resurrection)
Step 4: pat yourself dry and use a body oil on damp skin (we recommend Pursoleil)
DAILY DRINK MENU
ALL DAY: Drink water throughout the day - click here to calculate how much you need. If you don’t enjoy the taste of water, there are so many things you can add to it that not only improve the taste but also the health benefits. Lemon water is one of the most popular infusions out there and it’s great source of vitamins C & B, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. Cucumbers are rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and vitamin A & K, so pop a cucumber (with a tiny pinch of good salt) in your water for a nutrient bomb!
BREAKFAST: When consumed in the right way, Fresh Celery Juice is a powerful and miraculous healing remedy. People are noticing the range of benefits it provides, including clearer skin, improved digestion, less bloating, sustained energy, better mental clarity, weight loss, and stable moods - just to name a few.

MID-MORNING: You know her, you love her....Green Tea! We recommend Awaken from our friends at Greenhouse Tea Company. This fragrant blend of green tea, lavender, lemon verbena & lemongrass will give you the energy boost you need to get you through your mid-morning slump. Green tea is touted to be one of the healthiest beverages on the planet. It’s loaded with antioxidants that have many health benefits including protection against skin cancer. Bonus: Greenhouse Tea Company is a black owned and community focused small business!
LUNCH TIME: Try a Green Smoothie with added collagen. We love this green smoothie recipe because it includes avocado, coconut water and flax seed oil, all great for your skin. The jury’s still out on exactly how effective collagen supplements are but it can’t hurt, right? We like to add Live Conscience Collagen Peptides to our smoothies and shakes.
AFTERNOON: Add a Detox Chlorophyll Tonic to your daily routine! Did you know your gut and your skin are deeply connected? The incredible complexity of the gut and its importance to our overall health is a topic of increasing medical research. Numerous studies in the past two decades have demonstrated links between gut health and the immune system, mood, mental health, autoimmune diseases, skin conditions, and cancer. Cocokind Chlorophyll Tonic is a great way to start a journey towards gut health.
DINNER: Ayurveda recommends that you should not drink cold water while eating. Cold water affects digestion and results in the collection of toxins in the system. Continuing this practice can also lead to severe conditions like acid reflux. Having carbonated drinks and caffeinated beverages while eating food is also a strict no-no. Ensure that you only drink room-temperature water when having food and do not fill yourself up on water alone as it can reduce your appetite and impact proper digestion.
BEFORE BED: Sip on some Turmeric & Ginger Tea. Drinking this combo before bed will not only help you get a deep, truly restful night's sleep, while also doing magic things like cleaning your liver! Several promising studies have found that ginger and turmeric can have powerful effects on nausea, pain, inflammation, and immune function. We offer a Turmeric & Ginger tea in our Wellness Tea Set that tastes amazing. Warm milk (barf) is famously the old school go-to for deep sleep. If you want to level up, try this Golden Milk recipe. Deep sleep = glowing skin.
