Your Skin’s Hidden Damage

We all know that the sun provides vitamin D and that too much sun can cause premature aging cancer, and other harmful effects of overexposure. Some of the signs of sun overexposure take the form of age spots, freckles, wrinkles, and moles, however some damage may not be as noticeable… unless seen under UV light.

What would your skin look like under UV light? What hidden damage would it uncover? Thomas Leveritt wanted to find out. This powerful video shows the sun’s hidden effects on your skin and how sunscreen works to protect your skin.

Easy Ways to Drink More Water and Why

how to drink more water

Why You Should Drink More Water

We know drinking water is great for our bodies for SO many reasons:

  • Improve Bodily Functions: every system in your body depends on water — at about 60% of the body’s weight, it is the main chemical component; it carries nutrients, flushes out toxins, keeps soft tissues moist and healthy, and keeps cartilage around joints supple
  • Healthy Skin: your skin is about 60% water — staying well-hydrated helps the skin look smoother, healthier and less irritated; water helps with collagen production, too
  • Weight Loss: drinking water can help with weight loss — studies have found that participants who drank a glass of water before a meal lost weight faster than those who did not (increasing water intake makes you feel full faster and it aids with digestion)
  • Stay Alert: water keeps the mind alert and boosts the metabolism — even mild dehydration can make it difficult to concentrate and can sap your energy

How Much Water Should I Drink?

But are you getting enough of it? Our bodies are constantly losing water through breath, perspiration, and waste elimination. To keep your body functioning properly, you need to replenish that water supply. Your personal consumption can vary depending on your health, your activity level and where you live. For example, pregnant or breastfeeding women need to consumer more water than they did before. It’s also important to hydrate before, during and after exercising.

The Institute of Medicine suggests an adequate intake for men is about 13 cups of total beverages a day, women should drink about 9 cups. So the “eight 8-oz glasses a day” is still pretty accurate advice — and easy to remember!

How to Drink More Water

For a lot of people, the complaint is that it’s hard to drink that much water because it’s just so boring. It’s really best to avoid the flavoring packets/drops at the stores because of the high sugar and unnatural ingredients; and lots of evidence is surfacing about how bad diet sodas are for you. So … how to make good old water more exciting (and still healthy)?

  • try sparkling water instead of plain
  • make ice cubes out of pure fruit juice to add to still or sparkling water
  • use frozen grapes as ice cubes
  • add chunks of fruit (pineapple, watermelon, honeydew melon, etc.) to a pitcher and let it steep in the fridge for a few hours
  • add slices of cucumbers or citrus fruits like lemons, limes, or oranges to your glass
  • add muddled mint leaves
  • make non-caffeinated herbal tea (mint, ginger, chamomile) into iced tea

Eating more of certain foods that are particularly high in water content is another way to stay well-hydrated. Foods such as strawberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumbers, tomatoes, and spinach give you the added benefits of vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Have Trouble Remembering to Drink Your Water?

Set reminders on your phone if you’re having trouble taking a break to drink some water. For extra help search for “water consumption apps” and you’ll find cool stuff like:

apps to help you drink more water

waterlogged for iPhone

water your body app
water your body for Android

hidrate me water bottle
and even the awesome HidrateMe smart water bottle that syncs with an app on your phone to track consumption — and glows to remind you that it’s time to hydrate!

Water works for you, the point is to drink a good amount of water and stay well-hydrated for healthy and happy skin, body and mind.
