Tips for Hydration
Hydration from in the inside is fundamental
What are you eating?
Firstly, look at your diet which might be causing dehydration, if you are eating lots of dry and salty foods, consuming alcohol, tea and coffee as these are diuretics, meaning they take water out of your system quicker, so it’s a good place to start by takings these out of your diet or simply cutting back. What is good for your skin, mind and body are foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids – good fat. For example, salmon, nuts, avocado, olive oil, beans and flaxseeds. Fill each meal with foods that have a high-water content, cucumber, lettuce, green peppers, watermelon, strawberries, pineapple.
Are you drinking enough water?
We all know that we need to drink a lot of water every day and it is the key to essential skin health. If you find drinking water a little boring then infusing the water using your favorite fresh fruits. Each day at the spa we try to have a different infused water which we serve to the guests. My personal favorites are lemongrass, cucumber and mint, grapefruit and blueberries don’t forget to add lots of ice!
It is recommended we should be drinking between 2½ – 3L of water a day. To make it more measurable and easier to keep track of this; you can either break that down into the number of glasses you need to drink- I am never without my water bottle. That way, I pretty much know once I’ve reached my daily amount.
Hydrating your skin
Using an oil on the skin is a great way to go because it mimics the skin’s natural sebum and can help balance oil production so even oily skins can use an oil in their skin care routine.
