Sipping Pretty: 8 Drinks That Make a Difference


By: Rebecca Norris

We’ve all walked through Sephora and Ulta looking for the next best thing in beauty, but what if what we really need isn’t something found on your typical cosmetics aisle? Sounds crazy to think that such a beauty product could exist, but believe it or not, the saying that beauty is more than skin deep is totally true. In fact, it all starts from within, which brings us to today’s topic: beverages with beauty benefits. Now, we’ve all seen the advertisements on Instagram promoting a new skinny tea every other week and rolled our eyes the other way—those aren’t the types of drinks we’re talking about. Instead, it’s the beverages that so often fall under the radar despite having serious benefits when you swap them out for a plain glass of water or your normal cup of coffee. Don’t believe us? For curiosity’s sake, take a scroll through the seven products below and see if it doesn’t change your mind. (Here’s a hint: It will.)
