Infused water is the latest craze worldwide. This is the best way to drink more water and avoid frizzy drinks .This will help you to keep the unwanted sugar at bay and at the same time the body will be hydrated. There are many types of infused water.Today i am sharing an interesting recipe  of Rose and Orange infused water that is so refreshing with  the goodness of rose petals and citrus.If you don’t drink enough water, dehydration kicks in and you start feeling tired, achy, crampy, and constipated. Your skin starts to show it, and it only gets worse from there.Drinking more water helps you feel fuller and addresses the false hunger that dehydration can cause. Just that one healthier habit can lead to healthier body mass.
