Eat Water for glowing skin !

Hey Gorgeous ,

So recently i traveled to Hyderabad in south India  and the hot and dry weather here is taking its full toll on my skin and drinking water is just not enough no matter how much water i drink i feel i still can have more not to mention i have to run to the rest room more often flushing it all down in no time .

As the old saying goes ” Excess of anything is bad ” , my obsessive compulsion to keep my body hydrated for that flawless glow i was gulping down lots of water resulting in swelled up feet due to water retention. So I came across an interesting article that talked about the intake of water in a form that it can be retained longer and absorbed better by the body with added nutrients and its no rocket science you probably guessed it by now. Eating water in the form of watery fruits like oranges , lime , grapefruit , watermelon , musk melon , cucumber , apple and many more.

here is a small list that shows what all additional benefits you get apart from water when you consume the following foods , also in descending order of the water content

Now i don’t profess replacing water with fruits , that would not be a good idea but i am only encouraging to add more water to your day by increasing the intake of watery fruits , this way you get the goodness of all the nutrients in it , the water gets well absorbed by the body and body stays hydrated without u needing to rush to the restroom that often.

The effect is for all to see on your glowing skin and healthy hair , so stay safe this summer and stay hydrated and glowing .  🙂

Love

Isha
