Summer is ALMOST here and we are SO excited! There’s nothing we love more than getting a good dose of Vitamin D! BUT! It’s so important to remember in summer to stay HYDRATED! This is an amazing example of beauty starting on the inside because truly, nothing is more beautiful than hydrating, happy skin!
Here’s your 101 on staying hydrated this summer!
WHY FILTERED WATER IS A MUST
Ensuring you’re drinking enough water is the best way to stay hydrated in summer! But have you ever thought about the quality of your water? Regular tap water (and most bottled water too! Yikes!) contains dirt, rust, heavy metals, chlorine, parasites, fluoride, bacteria and potential endocrine disrupting chemicals too which can compromise gut health, immunity and basically just OVERLOADS your body with toxins and chemicals. This is why it is so important to ensure you are drinking filtered water which is safe from these nasties!

IS THAT SALT IN YOUR WATER?
Well, if you’re asking us, the answer is YES! Not many people know this, but the key to getting the MOST out of your water in terms of minerals and hydration is SALT!
Ensuring you’re getting enough good quality sodium in your diet is so important for adrenal health, mineral absorption and hydration! Adding a pinch of pure Himalayan salt to your water not only gives your body an amazing mineral boost but it also ensures your body actually absorbs the water you’re drinking so that your body is properly hydrated! Try adding a pinch of pure Himalayan sea salt to your water and see how you feel!
