As the outdoor temperatures start to climb and our perspiration increases, keeping cool and hydrated becomes essential to maintain healthy skin. Water will always be the go-to source of hydration and refreshment for our bodies, but sometimes it’s hard to resist the allure of a boldly-flavored juice or an elegantly garnished cocktail. With that in mind, we’ve created our own recipe for fruit infused water that’s packed with skin benefits that go beyond water alone. The best part? You can also use it topically, as a hydrating facial mist, a cool compress, or to rehydrate a dry facial mask. Stock up on the four fresh ingredients needed for this recipe during your next grocery trip and prepare yourself or your clients a pitcher of NAA Beauty Water to hydrate inside and out.

NAA Beauty Water

For an eye-catching upgrade to this drink, freeze fruit and rose petals into ice cubes and use them for serving the finished water infusion. Garnish each glass with an organic strawberry and a few mint leaves for a drink that’s spa-worthy.


rosepetals1/4 cup dried or 1/2 cup fresh rose petals (be sure they are pesticide-free)

1 pint organic strawberries, thinly sliced, or seeds from 1 pomegranate

1 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced

1/4 cup loosely packed fresh spearmint leaves

Enough flat water or lightly carbonated water to fill the pitcher


In a 64 oz glass pitcher, combine all ingredients, cover with filtered water, and steep in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours, depending on the intensity of flavor desired. Serve chilled, or strain out ingredients and use in facial treatments or skincare products. Store any unused portion in the refrigerator, and use within 3 days.

Skin-healthy ingredients and their benefits

Some of the skin-healthy ingredients infused in every sip:

  • Rose petals: Antioxidant-packed rose petals also aid in digestion, reduce topical inflammation, and support youthful skin with vitamin C.
  • Strawberries or Pomegranates: Vitamin C in these fruits fights stress in the body, prevents damage, and supports healthy collagen.
  • Cucumber: This naturally cooling veggie is packed with water and a natural diuretic in the body, as well as a gentle astringent when used topically.
  • Spearmint leaves: Mint leaves brighten and balance the flavor of the water, while cooling the body and aiding in digestion.

Ready to get sipping? Enjoy this recipe year-round, since the body and the skin release moisture readily in both hot and cold dry climates. Serve it in a spa, and let your clients know it’s the NAA’s signature blend!
