Summer is in full swing, and now is the perfect time to spend some quality time outdoors with those you love. Lasting memories can be made at a barbecue with family, visiting an amusement park, or exploring nature with your favorite people. Two things to be aware of, though, are how the heat quickly depletes the body’s natural hydration and the effect sun can have on unprotected skin.
Hydrate for Health
Water is incredibly important for maintaining good health. In fact, the human body can survive 40 days without food but only three days without water. Some signs of being dehydrated are constipation, headache, dry skin, damaged joints, and high blood pressure. Not drinking enough water has even been linked to calcium loss in the bones. On average, our bodies are 70% water. Consuming enough water can:
- Alleviate fatigue and boost mood
- Help with digestion
- Flush toxins from the body
- Help regulate body temperature
- Reduce water retention
- Keep skin and hair healthy and vibrant
- Keep joints and bones healthy
Our cells are composed mainly of water, and since cells are the building blocks of our bodies, cellular health and hydration are very closely linked. To keep cells at their healthiest, taking a supplement that is targeted specifically at helping them is a great idea to stay healthy this summer. ASEA water boosts a cell’s ability to communicate properly, ultimately improving health and hydration.
Heat and Skin
Taking care of skin during the summer is incredibly important. Dehydrated skin, which is different from dry skin, is dull, itchy, has more visible wrinkles, and presents with dark bags under the eyes regardless of being sleepy or not. Sun exposure can also cause skin cancer and age spots.
- Always protect the skin from the sun with sunblock, clothing, and a hat.
- Use a daily moisturizer that contains sunblock — even if you’re not planning to spend the day outdoors.
- Use a skin product that targets cellular health and redox signaling. It can help rebuild the skin.
- Drink ASEA water to enhance healthy cellular reproduction.
- Drink 6–8 cups of water a day, or more if you’ve spent a lot of time in the heat.
Realize what really matters this summer, and then choose to make time for those things. Let this be the year you remember for the rest of your life.
