Eating Your Hydration

Proper hydration is extremely important for your health. When you become dehydrated you can experience fatigue, muscle cramps, and headaches. You may even start to notice skin issues as it is the last organ to receive any hydration consumed and a direct indicator to how things are functioning internally. Simply put, dehydration is when the amount of fluids lost outweighs the amount of fluids taken in. You naturally lose fluids through perspiration, using the restroom, or the tears cried when you run out of your favorite Sorella Apothecary product.

A few weeks ago we discussed the Importance of Topical Hydration and why it plays a big part in your skin’s health. We don’t want to discredit the importance of internal hydration so we’re sharing some of our favorite ways to hydrate outside of drinking water because let’s be honest, drinking enough water can feel challenging sometimes. When you incorporate hydrating foods like fresh fruits and raw vegetables into your diet they play a huge part in hydration. Your body is able to slowly absorb the liquids because they are enclosed in the structure of the food. Who doesn’t like getting a dose of healthy vitamins and minerals while hydrating?
