We all know that drinking water is essential for our health and wellbeing – but do we know why? Our bodies are made up of 80% water and making sure that we stay hydrated, ensures that we can live our best lives.
Hydration has a major effect on energy levels and brain function, with mild dehydration (just 1-3% of fluid loss), impairing our ability to think clearly and affecting our mood and energy levels. If you have aches and pain around your joints and muscles, this could also be caused by dehydration. When the body is not receiving enough fluids, there is not enough lubrication around our joints.
As well as the health benefits that drinking plenty of water can bring, it also provides us with many amazing benefits to our skincare routine. Making sure we get plenty of water affects our skin, hair and nails, as our skin cells require water to function properly. Water is essential to maintaining optimum skin moisture and deliver essential nutrients to the skin cells. This helps to replenish the skin tissue and increase the elasticity in our skin, thus reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you are suffering from any skin disorders such as psoriasis or eczema, drinking plenty of water alongside treatment, has also been proven to be beneficial. Though there are many different opinions, when it comes to the right amount you should drink, the general advice is that you should be drinking 2L of water a day.
Drinking water is the most effective way to hydrate yourself, but you can also hydrate your skin from the outside by using face mists. Your skin is the largest organ of the body and will readily soak up anything you apply to it. When the skin is dehydrated, the protective barrier weakens, resulting in a break down of collagen and elastin. Using face mists can help avoid this.
Face mists also provide other numerous benefits such as cooling your skin down, soothing irritated skin, refreshing a tired face, setting make-up, and the natural scents that are used in our face mists can also be beneficial to your mood – helping to uplift you, energise or calm you down. Ormus Myst is infused with quartz crystal, which is a healing and purifying crystal, helping to uplift your body, mind and spirit.
Water used in our face mists is sourced from a pristine mountain spring in the mountains of Colorado, which purifies and energise skin. Ormus Myst contains added essential botanical oils, Rose, Jasmine and Frankincense, each bringing their own amazing benefits. Rose helps to protect your skin against inflammation and redness, Jasmine helps protect your inner self with properties that can help improve your mood, balance your hormones and overcome stress, and Frankincense is great for its age-defying properties helping to lift and firm the skin.
Ormus Myst is great to add to any skincare routine, to help lift you in the morning and to calm your body down in the evening, but you can also use it throughout the day, on your commute, at work or even to mist on your bed linen before you go to sleep. Using face mists, alongside drinking plenty of water, will help keep your skin and body hydrated and healthy.
