It’s an essential building block for life and something we need to keep us going—yet so many people across the world don’t drink half of the daily recommended amount of water to keep dehydration at bay. Why is water so important? It helps our bodies function better in nearly every way! At Body and Skin Health, we care about how your body performs day in and day out. Divide your body weight in half and the number is how many ounces of water you need everyday for basic health. (example 150 lbs = 75 ounces of water)
Here are three simple ways that you can help your body take in more water each day:
~ Drink water through a straw. Why? Taking in water through a straw allows you to drink larger amounts in a shorter time.
~ Add fruits and veggies to your diet like watermelon, eggplant and zucchini—all of which are more than 90% water!
~ Add ice to non-water drinks. This adds water to your beverage and keeps it cool.
