When you feel that strong urge to drink lots of water, it’s your body’s way of telling you how dehydrated you are, whether you’re conscious of it or not. Keeping hydrated has so many benefits not only for maintaining a healthy body but also for maintaining healthy skin. It may seem like an obvious fact, but hydration is often overlooked in our busy day-to-day lives.
How can the body benefit from keeping hydrated?
Making an effort to drink at least 2 litres of water a day can do wonders for physical health and staying hydrated has lots of health benefits. It helps with digestion, flushes out toxins, reduces the risk of headaches and muscle cramps, and even increases your metabolism, which is definitely helpful if you have fitness goals you’d want to achieve.
Best of all, keeping hydrated will make you feel great in and out! Making sure you’re adequately hydrated protects both your skin and your body from irritation and dryness and can even prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Here are some simple hydration tips you can do daily to keep your skin glowing and your body feeling great.
- Drink enough water! Have a water bottle with you wherever you go
We get it; life can get super busy, so the best way to make sure that you meet your daily water intake is to incorporate it into your daily lifestyle. Whether you’re working a desk job or spending most of your day out and about, make sure you have a water tumbler with you so that you can take sips whenever, wherever. Small water intakes go a long way and can surely help you reach the daily goal of drinking at least 2 litres or roughly 8 glasses of water.
- Stay hydrated! Make it a part of your routine and make it fun
Having to drink up to 2 litres of water every day can be intimidating, but the experience can be less tedious by making smoothies or juices. For best results, you might want to add up some collagen in your drinks for added health benefits for your body and your skin.
Hint: We have the best collagen powder in Australia! It is flavourless and odourless which makes it unnoticeable when blended into your favourite drinks. CanGro’s hydrolysed collagen can easily be absorbed into the body and is 100% natural, letting you enjoy collagen’s health benefits like firmer skin, lesser wrinkles, and increased skin hydration.
You can also snack on water-rich foods like watermelon, cucumber, leafy greens, celery, and zucchini to help you reach that daily goal!
- Don’t forget your skin! Hydrate in and out
While ensuring that your daily water intake reaches the recommended amount can also do heaps for your skin, supporting it with hydrating skincare products can amplify the effects even more. One of the simplest ways to spot a skincare product that focuses on keeping your skin hydrated is to look out for the ingredient, “hyaluronic acid.” This is a natural substance produced by the body that cushions and lubricates joints and other tissues yet is also found in skincare products for hydration. It helps prompt the body to produce more collagen and elastin to boost elasticity and keep the skin moisturised. Hyaluronic acid also aids in preventing scarring, dark spots and redness, and wrinkles.
CanGro has the best skin care collection in Australia that utilises hyaluronic acid and other key ingredients like Vitamin A in our Vitamin A Retinol 0.50% , Vitamin C (our Vitamin C Serum in Australia is ranked one of the best in the world!) , and Vitamin E in our Vitamin E Moisturiser to give you that much-needed dose of hydration on your skin so you can feel great on the inside and look fabulous on the outside! Give them all a try through our Skin Care Pack to save as much as 15%
