On my trip I had a water bottle attached to me at all times. I drank tons and tons of water daily, and since it was hot and I never felt truly hydrated I just drank more. It was awesome! Now that I’m home, I’m the worst. My water bottle has been in the kitchen and I think I may even have a dehydration headache. So now I’m writing a selfish yet educational post about why we all need to drink more water in the summer. Just in case you were ever looking for a reason to pick up a glass, here’s 4.
1- It will help you keep your weight in check.
Drinking water helps you feel full. Start drinking a glass or two before eating your meals and studies show you’ll eat ~75 fewer calories per meal! Every little calorie helps over bikini season!
2– It will help you achieve that glowing skin you’ve been looking for.
Dehydration makes your skin look more dry and wrinkled. So when you keep yourself hydrated, you’re also keeping your skin moisturized and soft.
3- It will help you maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.
Drinking water helps maintain your fluid levels, flush out toxins, keep your joints healthy, and helps your muscles work harder during your workouts. Keeping everything hydrated before, during, and after you exercise will allow for your maximum performance at the gym.
4-It will help your… errr regularity?
I’ll let you read about that through the NY Times so that I don’t get really weird google searches.
