Hydrate After the 4th of JulyJuly 5, 2013
Celebrate the 4th well hydrated
We hope you all enjoyed a very safe and happy 4th of July. Whether you hit the lake, the river, the pool, your backyard or your couch (who doesn’t want to watch Will Smith take out extraterrestrial threats to Earth?), you’re probably in need of a little TLC from your water. In case you weren’t aware of all of the ways that water is perfect for recovery, check out our helpful facts below!
When your drinks only come in red, white and blue, it’s hard to maintain healthy levels of hydration. Liquor, beer, wine, sodas and juices, however tasty, will all dehydrate or slow hydration in your body. Start this 5th of July off right with a tall, refreshing glass of water from your Kinetico drinking water system. Pure water will help to flush all of the toxins and unnecessary sugars from your body. (Don’t stop there! Fill your reusable water bottle up for on-the-go refreshment that is kind to you and the environment.)
We hope that you managed to squeeze a little sunscreen in with your patriotism when you packed for a day outdoors yesterday. If not, be sure to grab some Aloe Vera (chill a bottle in the fridge or go right to the source and snip a leaf right from your own plant), Tylenol and a big glass of purified water. The Aloe Vera plant is known as a natural healer for a good reason. It’s 96% water (moisturizing), has vitamins, minerals and its pectin works like cell cement to heal wounds faster. Tylenol is an anti-inflammatory as well as a pain reliever (making it necessary for painful, itchy burns). Upping your water intake will help to keep your skin hydrated, which will stop the itch and prevent peeling.
Did you stuff yourself with tons of red meat and sugary desserts yesterday? Holidays often spur overeating and nobody really enjoys the heavy, bloated feeling of being over-full. You can kick your digestive system into gear by simply drinking your recommended daily intake of water (eight cups) or more! Water helps to break down food, letting your body absorb nutrients and flush out waste.
Remember that the purest and most contaminant-free water comes straight from a Kinetico San Antonio drinking water system. You can incorporate one of our space-saving models into your own daily routines for a healthier planet and a healthier you.
