During the cold, dry, winter months, we tend to drink less water than what the body needs. In the summertime, it’s easy to stay hydrated because the heat makes us thirsty and perspire. There’s a misconception that we don’t perspire as such in the winter but that simply isn’t true. Thirst is often a late indication that we’re dehydrated. The body needs just as much water in the winter to function properly, stay alert, and keep the skin moisturized. Our bodies are made of 70% water so it’s necessary to nurture your body with it. When you don’t drink enough, symptoms like headaches and dry coughs occur. Where skin is concerned, this may also include chapped lips, dry, tight skin, and even acne because the skin is busy fighting for hydration, and in turn over-produces oil that causes breakouts.
To boost the power of Dormer 211 products, the amount of water you intake is equally important in promoting natural moisture balance in the skin. It’s recommended that you drink between six to eight glasses of water a day. While you can get water from consuming fruits and vegetables, pure water is best. Make sure to always travel with a bottle of water and plan your drinking breaks throughout the day.
