Why Is Hydration Important?
We all know that water/hydration is essential to survival, but did you know that hydration also impacts our health, bodily functions, and skin conditions?
It is essential for digestion, without proper hydration our body cannot efficiently eliminate toxins and waste from the body. Which could lead to digestive issues such as gas, bloating, abdominal discomfort, constipation, and even kidney stones.
Proper hydration is also essential to brain cognitive functions as the human brain is made up of 73% water. Lack of proper hydration impairs brain function, mood, cognition and increases the risk of migraines and headaches.
Hydration is also the key to plump and healthy skin, lack of hydration can present itself in the skin - dullness, blackheads, and even breakouts. Whereas properly hydrated skin is soft, smooth, and radiant.
1. Avoid Caffeine Overdose:
A natural diuretic, coffee can dehydrate the digestive system. If you are a caffeine addict, be sure to drink enough water to compensate.
2. Add Fiber:
Fiber-rich food is not only great for weight loss but also great for improving water absorption. Omega-3 and fiber-rich chia seeds are great for hydration, they absorb and hold up to 30X their weight in water, making them essential in achieving healthy skin and solving digestive issues like constipation.
3. After-Sun Rituals:
After a day of basking in the warm sun, it is important to deeply cleanse and hydrate. Try the Moisturizing Cleansing Oil as the first step of a double cleansing ritual, a non-detergent cleanser formulated with all-natural botanical oils gentle enough for even sensitive and acne-prone skin. Wipe waterproof sunscreen, debris, and makeup right off without stripping and disrupting the skin’s natural balance. Follow with vitamin-C-rich Dark Spot Corrector, and finish off with Age-Delay Lifting Serum to truly nourish, hydrate, and treat your skin with precious plant oils to wake up glowing head to toe. For the lip area, apply the all-natural Lip Retreat Oil to replenish lip hydration.
For the body, drench your skin in naturally aromatic, jasmine-neroli Body Oil, a blend of over 24 organic botanical oils encased in a highly recyclable glass bottle for a super dose of hydration and revitalization.
4. Eat Your Water:
Another way to get an extra boost of hydration is by eating fresh fruits and vegetables, summer time is perfect for cucumber, watermelon, strawberries, and many more fresh fruits and veggies to incorporate into your summer diet.
