Guide to Healthy Hydration (updated 23.5.2018)


 Print  EmDo you know that you need to get the right amount of water to be healthy?


Water is essential for life. 
Particularly critical, when the weather gets so hot nowadays. 
Importantly so, when you are a child (especially if they are very active) or a senior (they may have a weaker sense of thirst) or those suffering from medical conditions. For instance, hydration can help in improving viscosity of the blood in terms of improving blood pressure. And pregnant ladies too, hydration and hydration in fruits and vegetable fibres also help against constipation.

Urgently so when you are exercising or doing physically challenged manual work. 

Why do you need water? Your body is nearly two-thirds water and your vital organs in the body needs fluid to function optimally. Adequate hydration in the body also keeps you cool, so your temperature does not hit the roof,  causing your body to shut down. 
Notice how high temperature progresses to fits an…
Hydrate Dry Skin by Sleeping!

Sleep? Do you know that you sweat more during sleep?
While you are asleep your body’s hydration rebalances and recovers extra moisture.  This makes sleep a natural moisturizer that can help to smooth out wrinkles and lines on the skin.  

How to hydrate dry skin?  - no high-temperature, hot water on skin when you shower or wash your face. It strips away oil from the skin. 
- no excessive skin scrubbing. Once or twice weekly is good. 

Although the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis, consisting of dead cells (corneocytes) needs removal, excessive scrubbing will rid it of its  fat, oil, and skin cells that help keep moisture in the skin. 
For additional fortification for your skin, apply a moisturizer to your face. This can -  increase the moisture level of the stratum corneum,  - prevent skin from drying out, and, - if the moisturizer contains a sunscreen, it will also protect against sun damage.

Moisturise! Moisturise! Moisturise!

BEAuTY TALK:




Night cream, serum and day cream. What is their function?



Serum Serums do not replace your moisturizer. They can be used, both morning and night. Functions of serum is that they boost the hydrating effects of your moisturizer.

Lotions are lighter forms of cream user-friendly to sensitive skin.

Day Fluid Lotion for Day Glow
During the day, skin is subject to damaging UV rays, pollution, environmental stresses and  makeup. Thus lotions designed for use during the day are primarily focused on protection and support. They contain SPF to prevent burning and photoaging, antioxidants to fight free radicals to make skin look energized and firm. Day lotions  are usually designed to be worn under cosmetics, so they have light, nongreasy formulas that are absorbed quickly and allow pores to breathe. They act as a base providing a smooth, oil-free canvas for foundation to glide on smoothly.
Night Cream for Recovery
Night is when skin does its heavy lifting. The skin does the bulk of its re…
