Water Is The Key To Your Natural Beauty 


Hey hey my lovely entrepreneurs,


Thanks to technological advances, experts in dermatology have been able to observe the effect that our diet has on our skin’s texture and appearance.

Many recent studies in dermatology confirm that the most significant factor in skincare does not only depend on the cosmetics that we apply (which, of course, do make a difference) but also largely on our diet.

So … what should we implement to not only look great, but feel great too? 

What is that one element we all need to be incorporating more of into our diet? Yup, water, of course.

WHY WATER IS ESSENTIAL TO YOUR GLOW

Our body is 70 percent water; therefore, it’s logical that any lack of sufficient water intake will affect our appearance.

That’s why drinking water is undoubtedly the easiest and most efficient way of preventing the signs of ageing, maintaining the skin smooth, as well as the body healthy, yet also helping you reveal your natural beauty.

One of the ways I can efficiently drink enough water during the day is by reading motivational quotes that are on one of my drink bottles!!

I have a super basic one, that you can check out here, yet I totally love it, as it does help me keep tabs on my water intake.

I have also selected a few for you, that I find super cute below. Feel free to go check them out. They are all free of toxic plastics, leak proof and super colorful!! What's not to love?!


MY WATER BOTTLES PICKS FOR YOU

This bottle is leak proof and super colorful! With motivational phrases to keep you accountable of your water intake and free from toxic plastic, it is not only pretty but useful!

With its large nozzle and pretty colors, this motivational water bottle will help you stay motivated and drink up!



I love this one too, as it is a glass bottle. Great when at home and WFH. Its design is more sober, but still very stylish. Also, this one is dishwasher safe as well;

This bottle comes with a lifetime warranty!! Again a more subtle design, but its frosted BPA-free plastic is super original. It only has time reminders, but its sleek design will captivate you for sure.

HOW DOES WATER AFFECT YOUR SKIN?

Water eliminates the toxins in your body that your daily activities stored up through contact with pollutants, tobacco smoke, stress and other sources of free radical formation. Concretely, free radicals are the principal cause of skin diseases and premature ageing.

Water not only gives skin a more youthful appearance but also eliminates all of these elements, which cause the appearance of acne. Acne is formed by the accumulation of bacteria, oil, dead skin and dirt on the skin. Even for those with oily skin and problems with acne, water is needed to wash away both internal and external impurities.

Additionally, water helps vitamins and nutrients to easily flow throughout the body. In particular, it collaborates with all of the body’s organs to distribute vitamins E, C and B12, which help maintain the skin smooth and young.

HOW MUCH WATER DO YOU NEED TO DRINK DAILY?

Normally it’s recommended that a person drink at least a liter and a half of water, although many dermatologists recommend increasing the dose to two or three liters a day!

It does seem like a lot of water, but it really does help your body eliminate and flush out all unwanted toxins.

If you have trouble keeping up your water intake, my little tip is to infuse your water with fresh fruit, like apples, berries, lemon or lime pieces. Here is a super useful water bottle, in which you can infuse your fruit, to help spruce up your water and highlight that natural beauty of yours!

Sometimes, even if water is good for you, it can get a little boring when it's plain. So, if you are finding plain water, well too plain, drop a few yummy pieces of fruit, lemons or limes and you're all set. 

If it's not the season for berries, then try frozen ones.

WHEN IS IT ESSENTIAL TO DRINK WATER?

It goes without saying that it’s very important to drink and recuperate lost fluid after exercising or sunbathing. 

Don’t forget that water is good, not only for your organism, but also for your skin!

We also shouldn't just drink when we are thirsty. When we are thirsty it means that our body is already in need of water. 

Rule of thumb is to try and drink a glass or two of water every hour.

If you are are like me, and sometimes find it difficult to stay hydrated enough, I like to cheat a little bit and use electrolyte powder. 

Here are some that I suggest using to ensure you're staying hydrated enough, especially when you know you won't have access to a water fountain, or you've forgotten your water bottle, or you know you will be out in the sun or playing sport.


MY ELECTROLYTE POWDERS selection FOR YOU

These are great because they're all individualized packets. They come in dfferent flavors, but lemon lime is my favorite.

This is a large tub, that can make up to 50 servings of 16oz. (500ml). Made in the USA and it is keto-diet friendly!

What is great about this packet is the variety of flavors you get in the one pack. A doctor-created formula, you can be sure these electrolytes are going to keep you hydrated all day!

These are Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free, Kosher, Vegan, Non-GMO Certified and made with plant-based ingredients. Nuun Instant is formulated with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) guidelines for Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT) and the latest in sports hydration science to deliver essential fluids and minerals to the body for rapid rehydration and relief from symptoms of dehydration.

WATER INSIDE AND WATER OUTSIDE

When cleansing facial skin or the body, it’s best that the water be lukewarm.

Very hot water can dry out the skin excessively, but at an adequate temperature, its cleansing power is enormous.

Same goes for when you're drinking it. When it's hot we love ice cold water, but room temperature is much better for your body!

Remember that keeping tabs on your water intake can also be considered as part of your self-care routine.
