H2-whoa! 6 reasons your 8-a-day are essential

 
Everyone says that you’re supposed to drink about 8 glasses of water a day, but that seems like an awful lot. Well, guess what, babes: Ya might wanna consider fitting in the extra H20 because aside from the taste, water is anything but boring. Check out these six reasons you need to stay hydrated this summer—and why water should be your choice sip.

 

 

Smooth Skin

Believe it or not, being dehydrated will actually make your skin more wrinkly and dry. So in order to avoid looking like a raisin, make sure your skin cells are gettin’ all the water they need to keep your skin lookin’ picture perf.

 

Nix Your Nibblin’

Drinking more water can actually help you lose weight. The water fills you up, so you’re not craving so much snackage. Plus, it’s always better to drink all-natural, zero-calorie water than sugary, calorie-filled sodas and sports drinks.

 

Fight Asthma

If asthmatics don’t get enough water, their histamine levels increase, which means that their airways will be closed down in order to conserve the liquid that they do have. So to keep those airways open, make that water bottle your new BFF.

 

Stay Cool

Water keeps the temperature of your bod stable because it lets you sweat. If there’s not enough fluid in your body, you won’t have any extra to sweat off. And gross as it is, sweating does help you chill out because the water leaving your skin gives you a cool sensation.

 

Energize Without the Bunny

Cells need water to stay healthy. When you get dehydrated, they shrivel, which makes your muscles feel tired and weak. That’s why it’s extra important to drink lots of water when you’re workin’ out or playing sports.

 

Get Well and Stay Well

Water helps with all kinds of problems, from the flu to migraines to heart attacks. It also lubricates your joints, so that you’re less likely to sprain things. Best of all, staying hydrated boosts your immune system so you can avoid getting sick in the first place.

 

How are you staying hydrated in this heat wave?
