Staying hydrated is tricky during the summertime with all the outdoor and beach activities. Your body tries to cool down by sweating, which makes you lose water, which is why most of our poolside snacks should be water based.

There are several ways to stay hydrated. First, we need to accept that hydration starts from the inside. Moisturizing your skin is very important, but if your body’s water level isn’t optimum, then there’s no point. Drink at least two liters of water daily; most of us sip on Americanos all day that we forget that coffee is a diuretic. To encourage yourself to drink more, infuse your water with something refreshing like mint, cucumber, slices of lemon or oranges. Amp up your style game by investing in a see-through water bottle which you can carry around to boost your hydration!

Another way to slip in water is by eating it! How? Munch on water-rich foods such as watermelon, kiwi, tomatoes, and cucumbers. When it comes to sodium – it’s a tricky issue – too much salt is bad, too little is also bad. Limit your sodium intake to healthy mineral salts such as rock salt and Himalayan salt. Watch your water intake and stay healthy this summer.
