Glowing skin, a fast revving metabolism, speedy brain function, happy mood swings and increased energy all require optimal body hydration, both inside and out. No mean feat when you consider our daily routines – our morning 'extra shot' fix, a fast food deli stop at lunchtime and mojito's after work, which can all contribute to dehydration.
With all this at stake, we're on constant hydration mission. We like to switch up our liquid intake – alternating juices, herbal tea, coconut water and just the regular tap stuff to ensure we reach our recommended eight glasses daily. It also pays to glug not sip – research has shown your body can burn calories up to 30% faster after downing half a litre of water in 30/40 minutes. To keep levels topped up we also snack on water-rich fruit and veggies such as watermelon, grapes, cucumber and celery.
When it comes to the skin our hydrating multi-tasker is Aveda Shampure Composition Oil TM, rich in Organic Sunflower oil, it prevents moisture loss. You can smooth directly on to the body and scalp, pour it into the bath or apply as a massage oil and even to cuticles to keep hands and nails nourished. Never one to miss an opportunity, we always slather up with a luxe body moisturiser after the shower to seal in moisture. Try Aveda Stress-Fix TM Body Creme, the shea butter and plant oil combo cocoons skin and the Stress-Fix aroma is proven to reduce feelings of stress.
Now where's our glass…
