Drinking water is so important for your health and keeps your hair and skin in check.
Especially in winter, dry skin takes over our bodies and we have nothing but flaky dandruff over our whole bodies. No? Just us? All we’re saying is that being hydrated is SO important year round. So grab yourself a big glass of water and read along.
What are the beauty benefits from mother nature’s serum?
Water is essential to maintaining optimum skin moisture and delivering essential nutrients to the skin cells. Water replenishes the skin tissue and increases elasticity. This helps in delaying the appearance of ageing signs like ageing and fine lines.
Water is a great replacement for your expensive anti-ageing treatments. It keeps the skin glistening and overall, enhances the complexion. For soft and supple skin, treating your body from the inside out is more important than applying expensive facial treatments.
Drinking enough water can combat skin disorders like psoriasis and eczema. It also increases metabolic rate and improves the digestive system to flush out toxins from the body. In turn, you’ll get healthy and glowing skin.
Hydration is crucial to the structural integrity of nails. Insufficient water intake can lead to brittle nails prone to breakage, as well as dry and peeling cuticles.
When you’re dehydrated, your body begins to conserve water in order to protect your other vital organs. This can lead to hair loss, thinning, and breakage. If you want to grow a lovely long mane, drinking plenty of H2O is essential.
If you really struggle to drink the recommended 2.5 litres a day, here are some tips on how to keep up your daily intake.
Get a pretty drink bottle to take everywhere you go. We are LOVING this new drop from Mecca, the BKR. The stylish yet small bottle can fit into your bag, looks cute and will encourage you to keep sipping. These bottles come in two sizes, 500mL (starting at $50) or 1L ($70).
Drink through a straw! Not a plastic one though. Metal straws are around everywhere now, and perfect for when you’re lounging around at home. You’ll drink more water through a straw and at a faster rate. You’ll breeze through a litre in no time. You can get a 4 pack of metal straws at Kmart for just $3 (BARGAIN!!) which includes a cleaning brush!
Add some natural flavour. Lemons, mint, lime are great options to jazz up your drink. You could really add anything you have lying around. Berries are also great options! By adding these flavours, you’re also giving your body more antioxidants.
If you’re on struggle street with the plain water, you could always drink mineral or soda water. This will trick your body into thinking that you’re consuming a soft drink of some description, add some fruit and voila! You’ve made yourself a guilt free soft drink (kinda).
If none of these options help you, you can download apps or set alarms on your phone to remind you to keep drinking.
Use these tips wisely and stay hydrated this winter. Your skin will thank you for it and you’ll be glowing from the inside out!
