Health Benefits of Drinking Water

T

here are endless health benefits to drinking water. At the Hideaway Spa we especially recommend staying hydrated during the festive season, with the extra calories and festive tipples usually consumed!

Our bodies are made up of approximately 60% water which we need to maintain to ensure a health body. 8-10  glasses is the daily recommended amount.

Here are some of the top benefits:

Nourish your skin: fine lines and wrinkles are deeper when you’re dehydrated. Water is nature’s own beauty cream.

Drinking water hydrates skin cells and plumps them up, making your face look younger. Water also flushes out impurities and improves circulation and blood flow, leaving your face clean, clear and glowing.

Boosts immune system: drinking water gets rid of waste through sweat and urination, which improves your health and reduces your risk of certain illnesses.

If you drink enough water and your body is hydrated this will help give you a healthier immune system, so are less likely to get both short term and long term illnesses.

“Water is a natural remedy. Drink yourself to better health”.

Boosting up your energy: water helps to boost your energy. Not taking in enough water leads to dehydration and dehydration can make you feel fatigued. Water helps the blood transport oxygen and other essential nutrients to your cells.

Lower stress with water: 85% of your brain tissue is water. If you are not drinking enough water and your body becomes dehydrated this will lead both your mind and body becoming stressed. Stress leads to lack of sleep and can also lead to other health problems.

Build muscle tone with water: drinking the right amount of water daily will help prevent your muscles from cramping and will lubricate joints. Water is also very good for your heart and helps reduce the risk of many health problems such as a heart attack.

To further promote a healthy body, our range of spa therapies to include massage, facials and body wraps can increase physical and mental well-being.
