3 Benefits to Water

Water splash

1)       Healthier, Vibrant Skin

2)       Healthier Hair

3)       Healthier Body

Watching what you eat and drink is essential to a healthier lifestyle.  Drinking water on a regular basis not only keeps you hydrated, but can also help you have healthier skin, hair and a healthier body.  If you aren’t a fan of plain old H20, find other drinks and foods that are made with water.  At home, work or at school there are always healthier alternatives to sugary, high calorie beverages and food.  Put down that 140 calorie, 12oz., high sugar soda and pick up a 0 calorie, or low calorie, low sugar alternative beverage.

Drinking water on a regular basis is a great way to leave your skin, body and hair healthy, but you can also use water in different ways to keep you skin firm, hair shiny, and body toned.  According to an article in Health Magazine, “15 Big Benefits of Water”, water therapy helps to detoxify and tighten the skin. The process—which involves a steam-room session to open pores, followed by a cold-pool plunge to shock skin—is easy to replicate at home, according to Eva Scrivo, a New York City-based beauty expert and host of Beauty Talk on Sirius Satellite Radio. 

 

drinking water keeps you hydrated

Just soak a washcloth in steaming-hot (but bearable) water, and then lay it over your face for a minute. Next, wash with your favorite cleanser, and rinse with warm water. For your "plunge," splash with cold water about 15 times. "It may sound old-fashioned, but it really works to invigorate and tighten your skin," Scrivo, says.’

 

 
Now onto that healthier shinier hair that all women want… and, come on guys you know that you would like a healthier, shinier head of hair as well.  If you Google: cool water rinse and glossier hair, an article comes up from Ehow.com, “How to get Ultra-Glossy, Healthy and Manageable Hair”.  There are a ton of at home remedies you can mix up to help dry, frizzy,damaged hair, but the easiest way to reduce that fizziness is as simple as changing the water temperature in your shower.
 
 
 
Cold water rinse = shiny hair
 
An Ehow contributor says: Cool off by lowering the temperature of the wash and rinse water.  Cool water encourages the hair cuticle to contract, reducing frizzies and reflecting more light. Besides making your  hair shine more, cool water protects the hair shaft during the wash and  rinse stages.

 

Some people exercise to stay in shape, train for a marathon, or get their minds off everyday life, but exercising does not come easy for everyone.  So let’s make exercising a little more fun, by jumping into the pool.  Water is twelve times more resistant than air, toning all sorts of muscles while swimming or doing water aerobics.  You can burn 11 calories per minute just by treading water rapidly.

 

 

water is good for you inside and out Fitness Magzine, toning water exercises is something you can try out  next time you hit the pool, whether it’s in your backyard, on  vacation, or at the gym these exercises can go with you anywhere.   Here are a few pool exercises from an article, Slim Down in a    Splash: Pool Workout, Fitnessmagazine.com:

 
K-Tread

Targets: Arms, back, chest, abs, butt, and hamstrings

  • In the deep end, tread water, making small circles with cupped hands, and lift right leg straight in front of you at hip level while reaching toes of left leg toward bottom of pool. Hold for 5 seconds.

  • Switch legs quickly, bringing right leg down as you raise left leg, and hold for 5 seconds. Continue for 30 seconds, alternating sides.

Tip: Squeeze your glutes and quads to keep your legs straight.

 Otter Roll

Targets: Back, abs, butt, and legs

  • Hugging beach ball to chest, float on back, legs extended, feet together.

  • Roll toward left and over top of ball (like an otter spinning in the water), using entire body -- shoulders, back, core, legs -- to make a full revolution, returning to start. Take a breath. (Beginners can rock from side to side with head above water throughout.)

  • Continue for 30 seconds, alternating direction of roll.

Tip: Really drive your leading shoulder and hip into the water to get rolling.

Ball Lever

Targets: Shoulders, back, triceps, and abs

  • Holding beach ball with arms stretched straight in front of you, float facedown in chest-deep water so legs are extended behind you, feet together.

  • Keeping arms straight, pull ball underneath you, drawing it as fast as you can through water toward thighs in an arc. (As the ball is pressed underneath, it will lift you out of water to take a breath; beginners can keep head above water throughout.)

  • When ball reaches thighs, bend elbows to bring it back to surface and press it forward to return to start position. Continue for 30 seconds.

Tip: Keep your arms as straight as possible and your body straight and stiff to get the most muscle sculpting.

 

Water is a natural beauty elixir; whether you are drinking eight glasses a day, detoxifying and tightening your skin with water therapy, cooling off with a cold rinse in the shower or toning your muscles in the pool, both inside and out, water keeps you healthy.
