H2O Glow
Discover all the beauty and health benefits of drinking water, plus tips for making sure you’re staying hydrated from head to toe.

Our bodies are made up of 60% water, which means that good ol’ h20 is really important to our health, beauty and wellbeing. And when the temperatures rise in the summer, it’s even more essential that you keep your body hydrated. While we all know this, do you really know why we need to drink water? Here are a few fun facts:

Hydration gives you healthy skin

Water is essential for maintaining skin’s moisture and elasticity. Without enough water, you’re faced with dehydration, which can cause the skin to become dry, dull and prone to premature aging. Drinking water keeps the skin hydrated, plump and radiant, and can ever reduce the fine lines and wrinkles. What’s more, drinking water nourishes nail beds from within, promoting strong, healthy nails!

Water has a cooling effect

Proper hydration prevents the body from overheating and helps the body sweat efficiently, particularly after exercising or spending time outdoors in the hot summer. Without that cooling and sweating, you can run the risk of heat exhaustion and heatstroke.

It’s detoxifying

Water plays a vital role in flushing out toxins and waste from the body. Staying hydrated supports kidney function and can promote clear and healthy skin.

Drinking water boosts energy and mental clarity

Feeling sluggish and foggy? That could be dehydration calling. Not drinking enough water can lead to fatigue, lethargy and impaired cognitive function. Staying hydrated, on the other hand, helps maintain energy levels, improves focus and enhances mental clarity, keeping you feeling refreshed and alert. So maybe swap out your morning coffee for a big glass of water instead!

We know, we know; water isn’t your beverage of choice. It’s not for many people. But the benefits are so significant that we have to find ways to keep sipping. Here are a few of our favorite tips:

1. Infuse Your Water

If plain water doesn’t do it for you, add natural flavors to it to make it more palatable. Think: slices of lemon, cucumber, berries or herbs like mint or basil. Get creative!

2. Drink Herbal Tea

Herbal teas are a sugar-free (as long as you don’t add it), caffeine-free way of consuming more water. Drink it hot or make a large pot, let it cool, and add ice cubes for a refreshing beverage. Cold peach herbal tea on a hot summer day is delightful and hydrating!

3. Buy a BIG Water Bottle

Oversized travel water bottles are everywhere these days, and they’re perfect for making sure that you’re getting in all your sips. If you’re not a big water drinker already, start small by challenging yourself to finish one large bottle each day. Gradually work your way up until you’re drinking about half your body weight in fluid ounces each day.

4. Set Reminders

Despite our best efforts, sometimes we simply forget to drink water throughout the day, especially if it’s not already a habit. Set reminders on your phone or use a hydration-tracking app to prompt you to drink fluids throughout the day.

Nourish Your Nails

While keeping your body hydrated from the inside out is essential for optimal nail health, sometimes our nails need a little extra help. Add these products to your nail arsenal, as they’re the ultimate moisture makers!
