Our mission is to offer great treatments, so you can get great skin. Sound great? It is! But years of experience has taught us what you do outside of the treatment room is just as important to getting great skin. You can seriously undo all our hard work and we don’t want that!
So, what should I be doing we hear you ask?
We’ve compiled a list of the best healthy habits for getting great skin. These habits will also help you to get the most out of your SkinBase treatments and maintaining the results. We’ll be sharing a new habit each week. The last week we’ll have a downloadable Healthy Habits Guide for you to keep. This is not about getting fit or thin just about being healthy and happy and treating your body well to make your skin look its best.
We’ll kick off our healthy habits with the easiest one of all.
Healthy Habit 1. Drink 1.5 litres of water per day
Every cell in our body needs water. We are about two-thirds water so it stands to reason that drinking more of it will help keep us healthy. It’s also completely free so this has got to be the easiest of our healthy habits to adopt. There are actually very few clinical studies about the health benefits of drinking water but a lot of anecdotal stories that make us think it must be worth a try!
Here are a few of the benefits:
- Water helps to flush out toxins. Your kidneys filter out waste and toxins in your blood. A lack of water can stop the body doing this effectively.
- Increases energy – You need water to digest food and help circulate blood. A lack of water can cause fatigue and affect your mood and concentration.
- A natural headache remedy, fatigue can cause headaches and a lack of water can cause fatigue.
- Can relieve symptoms of joint pain and backache. Dehydration can lead to a lack of lubrication in our joints causing pain and discomfort. Drinking more water will ensure the discs in the back can rehydrate and keep our joints healthy.
And don’t forget you will be getting some of your water requirement in your food and other drinks. A good way to tell if you are getting sufficient water is to look at the colour of your urine. It should be a pale yellow colour if well hydrated. Drink up!
