    It is crucial to supply your body with loads of water as soon as you get out of bed because your body loses water when you exhale water vapour throughout the night. Other water is lost when you sweat during your sleep. This is why it’s important to rehydrate your body and activate your organs for the day ahead. Imagine giving your stomach a cup of dehydrating caffeine after its water ‘fast’. Instead, hydrate your system by downing two glasses of water after waking up as it flushes out toxins to ensure that your skin looks clearer, brighter and fresher.

    Water is not only a drink to be consumed when thirsty, but is also an aid for better digestion. When taken before and after meals, it allows for food to be broken down and absorbed into our bodies more efficiently. Apart from keeping constipation a thing of the past, it also fills us up before tucking in, hence reducing the amount calories consumed. Similarly, drink a glass of water after your meal so your food flows through your digestive track smoothly to ensure that the nutrients in your fruits and veggies are being absorbed into your system.

    Our stomachs send us a signal to eat several times a day. Our natural instinct is to reach out for more food and snacks instead of what our bodies might actually want- water. Most of the time, when you start feeling hungry in between meals, save your calories and try drinking a glass of water. You might just be thirsty.

A heightened exchange of water in our bodies results in a cleaner system as it flushes out all our impurities. And if your urine is of a dark yellow shade, it’s a sign from your body to up your water game. The lesser the impurities, the clearer your skin!
