Do you ever feel your skin gasping for hydration and replenishment during the summer and flighting dry winds and cool temperatures in the winter? Here are some do’s and don'ts so you can stay hydrated all year round.
Remember hydration on the inside reflects onto your skin!
Foods with a high-water content such as Cucumbers, watermelon, lettuce and tomatoes are the perfect way to stay hydrated without having to chug gallons of flavorless water day after day. Water of course is essential to staying hydrated, we are not saying cut out drinking water however these delicious foods can add a flavorful twist to your everyday water consumption.
Tip: Add fruit to your water for some low-calorie flavour.
A great source of hydration if you’re struggling to get enough water daily, coconut water is easily digested and full of electrolytes. The high levels of electrolytes within coconut water makes it the perfect post workout drink to help maintain your body's natural fluid balance and keep you hydrated. Coconut water can also be a great way to replace de-hydrating drinks such as soft drinks and high caffeine drinks as it has a slightly sweet taste, naturally!
It’s also extremely important to hydrate your skin from the outside, your skin is truly the gateway to the rest of your body and in fact is the largest organ we have, so it is imperative that we care for our skins starting with hydration!

Stay away from drinks that will dehydrate your body – yes, that means alcohol!
Have you ever gone on a night out and woken up the next morning with dry and dull skin?
Unfortunately, alcohol is not the best way to stay hydrated as it is a diuretic, this means it makes you go to the bathroom more often and as a result you rid your body of good and bad fluids, this includes water and anything providing you with hydration. Some more drink that have dehydrating properties include high caffine drinks such as coffee, energy drinks and soft drinks all of which have slight duiretic effects.
So next time you pick up something to eat or drink, make sure you think about your skin first!
