The importance of staying hydrated is something we hear about all the time. Stay hydrated when you exercise. Stay hydrated to keep your skin healthy. Stay hydrated in the sun. Stay hydrated, stay hydrated, and stay hydrated!
For most of us, staying hydrated isn’t all that easy. With long, stressful days it is easy to forget to drink water. Or maybe that soda is more enticing? We all understand that feeling. But what if I told you that there is a strong correlation between cellulite and hydration? I bet I’ve got your attention now, don’t I?
One of the main reasons we are told to keep hydrated so often is to keep all the toxins in our body flowing freely, and eventually out of our systems. Accumulation of toxins in the body can lead to a myriad of health deficiencies, both internal and external. A build-up of toxins in your system is one factor that can lead to cellulite, so you want to keep those bad boys flowing!
The effects that dehydration has on other things in life are the same that it has on the human body. For instance, think about how dehydrated fruit looks. Shriveled, unhealthy and downright sad. Essentially, dehydration does the same thing to our skin (although not as noticeably). Skin that has lost its elasticity can only hurt areas on the body competing with cellulite or wrinkles. Keeping the skin hydrated will help to keep it smooth and maintain its elasticity so it can stretch tightly over areas that we might want to conceal.
A very common misconception about staying hydrated is that we can only accomplish this task by drinking lots of water. While, drinking water in sufficient amounts will keep a body hydrated, it is not the only way to do so! A diet rich in fruits and vegetables can help keep our bodies extremely hydrated. Of course, this does not mean that you can stop drinking water altogether. Although fresh fruit and vegetable juices and herbal teas will also give your body the boost of hydration that it needs, combining both into your daily routine can work wonders for the reduction of visible cellulite! How can you pass that up?
It’s also important to attack hydration from the inside and outside. Drinking water and eating fruits & veggies is great, but using a great skin moisturizer like coconut oil or essential oils will likely double your efforts.
