Why Drink Water:
Put simply, drinking enough water is crucial for helping our body perform its normal functions. Water encourages our bodies to extract nutrients, digest food, boosts our immune system and stimulates muscle growth and fat burning. Beyond these vital processes, water keeps the skin hydrated. For your face especially, hydration can pro-long the appearance of wrinkles, combat break outs and enhance your complexion. Glowing skin? Yes, please.
On average, an adult loses between 1.5-2 litres of water per day through exercising, digesting food, sweating and the simple act of breathing! These lost litres need to be replenished in order to maintain a healthy body and lifestyle.
Experts advise that the cleaner and fresher the water, the easier it is for the body to function as it has less to process before beginning its work. Filtered water provides this benefit as any impurities, chlorine or lime scale that can often enter regular tap water, has been removed before reaching the mouth. Bonus!
Knowing water is beneficial for you is motivating, yet remembering to drink it proves a task. Fear no more, The Hut have provided a collated ‘How to Start Drinking More Water’ blog to boost your memory and make drinking water fun again (if it ever were).
How to Start Drinking More Water:
Create a habit
Drinking a glass of fresh water every morning and night can feel like a chore, especially when you’re already tucked up with the lights out. However, it is suggested that it takes 21 days to make a habit, so try drinking a glass of water before or after you brush your teeth, morning and night, for 21 days. The activity will become part of the process and no longer feel like an inconvenience.
Whilst you’re sleeping your skin cells are regenerating and losing moisture through the process. Similarly, as you sleep your temperature rises, further dehydrating your body. Drinking water before you go to sleep can combat this, giving you a morning glow and hydrated skin
