Hydration 101 – 5 ways to boost your hydration throughout the day
With winter well and truly upon us, you might be feeling the early signs of dehydrated and stressed skin. Look for signs such as dry, sensitive and red skin which are early signs that you’re in need of a hydration boost! Luckily, organicspa has winter covered, here are 5 ways to boost your hydration so your skin can repair, renew and replenish itself.
1. Drink a glass of water on the hour
When your mind is busy at work it’s easy to forget to drink your recommended dose of 8 glasses of water a day. A simple trick to remember this is to have a tall glass of water on the hour every hour. Over a standard work day this simple trick means you will have successfully consumed your 8 glasses by the time you leave the office!
Keep a notepad and pen by your side so you can tally each glass as the day goes on.
2. Add lemon or berries to your water
Sometimes when we drink a lot of water our body processes it very quickly, meaning we often find ourselves running to the loo every twenty minutes! A simple trick is to add some lemon or a couple of frozen berries to your water, adding these little doses of vitamins and minerals will require your body a little extra time to digest, leaving you hydrated for longer.
3. Add a litre of water for every hour of exercise
For every hour of exercise, replenish your body with an extra litre of water. In the colder months, even if you’re not sweating as much, the body can become dehydrated just as easily as in the Summer. The longer you exercise the more water you need, so be sure to drink up the H20 before, during and after you hit the gym.
4. Ditch the caffeine
Even though we love it, the caffeine in our beloved coffees can cause our bodies to become dehydrated. To really see some noticeable improvements in the quality of your skin, reduce your intake of caffeine to just one cup of coffee a day.
A repairing and moisture-rich skin regime are crucial for soft, smooth and healthy skin during winter. As the largest organ in the body, our skin drinks up everything we put on it, so it’s important to remember that ingredients do matter! Our range of gorgeous, hydrating moisturizers can renew and
