Did you know that water makes up about 60% of your body? Water has many essential functions in the body and is needed to keep us charged and ready to go daily.¹ Proper hydration is necessary for your body to keep up with functions such as regulating body temperature, digesting food, maintaining healthy skin and joints, and many more! We can find out a lot more just by looking at the effects of dehydration.
Many factors can affect your hydration, including exercise, heat and humidity, altitude, and being sick. Staying hydrated doesn't just mean drinking more water. ² It means consuming enough fluids and electrolytes to keep your body hydrated and your brain functioning, avoiding dehydration no matter the cause. For example, a soda or juice concentrate contains lots of sugar and calories but doesn't provide much hydration.
Like any other organ in your body, your skin also needs water to stay hydrated. Yes, drinking water is a great way to keep your skin looking hydrated. ³ However, sometimes it's best to give your skin an extra hydration boost with products containing hydrating ingredients. Components like one 2-Hexanediol, Glycerin, and Phragmites Communis Extract add hydration to the skin without leaving a greasy residue. ³ The consistency of these ingredients is also beneficial because it absorbs right into the skin.
