Skin hydrationIf we want to take care of our body and make our skin to long maintained a young and fresh look, apply various cosmetics and creams. But keep in mind that your body and skin watering before everything ... from the inside.
How much water should you drink a day?Minimum fluid intake is calculated by multiplying 30 ml for our weight. So, a person weighing 70 kg should drink at least 2,100 ml of water or other fluids a day. But when the outside temperature to high temperature or working in dry, air-conditioned rooms and waiting for us strenuous activity, you need to drink even more.
For people who hitherto saw too little, shifts to the correct amount will be quite a challenge. Fortunately, we can gradually accustom your body and develop the habit of reaching for water. Let us challenge ourselves. If during the day awaits us a lot of traffic and movement, let's get a bottle of 1.5 liters of water, and let's put a goal to empty her till the end of the day.
On the other hand, for people who lead a sedentary lifestyle and spend most of the day behind a desk, a good solution may be place on the desk and pouring a large cup full of water as soon as it gets empty.
The beginnings are always difficult, but after a few weeks of the habit of drinking water should consolidate. To work!
How much water you choose?Recommended for everyone (except those with contraindications health), mineral waters. Most popular spring waters are different, as the name suggests, the content of minerals. Mineral waters, especially those of highly mineralized (that is, greater than 1000 mg of mineral per 1 L), are a good source of magnesium, calcium and iron which is still insufficient in the diet of the average person.
In addition, mineral water are better absorbed and more used by the body to its many needs. Safe to consume 1 liter of mineral water, up to 1.5 liter. Why this limitation? Larger quantities can be too heavy burden on the kidneys.
Avoid sugary flavored waters and colorful drinks because they contain a lot of chemical additives, as well as calories, which then unwittingly delivered to our body.
What besides water?
And what about tea and coffee? Liquids that contain caffeine or its derivatives, namely coffee, tea, energy drinks are, unfortunately, quite the opposite effect, ie dehydrate and deplete the body of minerals. With the best energy drinks give up at all. When we want a coffee, let us remember to drink a glass of water by the way - then complemented with mineral deficiencies. And when we feel like a cup of tea at, then ideally green, white, fruit or herbal.
