Aging is a natural part of life. There are so many things that a person can do to prolong their life and to look good while doing it: DNA and Genetics can only go so far. Most women begin their beauty routine at an early stage of their life. And, most women also use the products that their Mother’s used until they find what works for them. But, with the wealth of information and beauty products available, where should a person begin looking for the products that they need?
The skin of the body is the largest organ and filtering device. If anything is going wrong on the inside it surely will show on the outside. Acne, Psoriasis, Eczema, Dry Skin, Stress; the list of skin issues are endless and so are the products available to treat them. Preventing the skin condition is always the number one reason to use skin care. But, besides treating the skin on the outside is just as important as what goes inside.
Dehydration is not Attractive.
Water: There is nothing more essential that you can do for your body or beauty routine than drinking an over abundant amount of water. Unfortunately, the water that comes out of our kitchen sinks is not the pure form of water that is needed. Even the water that you get in bottles is questionable.
Distilled water is the purest water that you can buy and is probably the best water for your well being. There are no minerals, or chemicals for that matter, found in Distilled water. The trace minerals needed for the proper functioning of the human body is so small, that getting them from water is not important.
Since it is so pure it raises the freezing point; distilled water, gets colder than regular water making it a very refreshing and delicious treat. Not to mention, that contributing to the pile up of plastic bottles in the landfills are ecologically irresponsible.
On average, the body is made up of 70% water. And, if your urine is a dark yellow color then you are severely dehydrated. Urine in a healthy human being should be close to the color of lemonade or lighter. When not properly hydrated the body will retain a percentage of water to function. A constant replenishing of the body's water supply will cut down on water retention, contributing to weight loss, and will also minimum the appearance of wrinkles. Wrinkles protrude when the body is dehydrated: the body will absorb the water in the skin. Knowing how much your body needs is another issue.
The recommended amount of water is not agreed upon in the scientific community
The recommend amount of water according to the RDT (reference daily intake) is from 91.3 to 125.1 ounces in the average adult. Some Fitness Trainers and Doctors recommend drinking half of your body weight of water everyday:
Take a Water Challenge!
Make a conscious effort to drink, at least, the recommended amount of water everyday for two weeks and don’t let anyone know what you are doing. After a week people will start to notice that you have done something different and the complements will start pouring in.
If you still don’t believe that water is an essential part of your beauty routine, take a water challenge and see for yourself.
The best part of the water challenge: after two weeks of drinking the water that your body so desperately needs, your body will begin to crave this magical elixir and drinking water will become a habit. And, a habit is what a beauty routine is essentially.
