According to studies*, 89% of the British population aren't drinking enough water. With the average adult body made up of around 60% of the good stuff, carrying nutrients around the body and regulating temperature it’s never been more important to stay hydrated. For optimum hydration we're encouraged to drink two litres a day, which can seem like quite the challenge. However it's not only plain water that contributes to this goal, all intake of fluids count even your morning tea and the food you eat. 
Not only essential for our vital organs, digestion, circulation and absorption but drinking plenty of water can improve concentration levels and flush out impurities, leading to a clearer complexion. With the warmer weather on the approach, we teamed up with the experts at ESPA and BRITA for some top tips on how to keep your body and skin hydrated. 

Skincare and Hydration


Hydration benefits your skin keeping it plump as dry skin is prone to wrinkling faster. For maximum hydration, apply moisturiser straight after a bath or shower when your skin is more porous.


Do your bit for the planet by reducing your plastic use with a reusable BRITA on the go water bottle. Keep it at arms reach at all times as a constant reminder to drink more water.


Try using a product with hyaluronic acid, such as the ESPA Overnight Hydration Therapy. Hyaluronic acid holds 1,000 times its own weight in water, providing your skin with long-lasting hydration. 


Use a BRITA Style Jug to filter your water for an elevated flavour, then infuse your water with fruits such as lemons, berries, lime, mint, and even more vitamin and antioxidant benefits.


Try to drink a litre of water in the morning, this helps to promote a sustained flow of blood to your skin, immediately rehydrates your body and releases toxins from your system. Drinking water in the morning also helps to jump start your metabolism. Keep a jug of ice cold water in your fridge for easy access.
