Our years of growing up were filled with the same reminders for better health: drink at least eight glasses of water a day, moisturize daily for plump skin, improve your digestion, and so much more. And it all boils down to proper hydration.
Studies—and many years of practice—prove that drinking more water does good to your body, inside and out. Not only does your body stay in great shape, being well-hydrated lets you have smoother skin, lesser wrinkles, and a more even complexion.
This summer, with all the outdoor activities lined up and the sun on an extreme high, we’re getting ahead of the curb and going back to basics with our hydration game plan: a healthy water intake and swathing on moisturizing products.
Don’t skimp on the H2O
Whether you’re busy typing away on your desk or ticking off activities and landmarks on your travel itinerary, don’t forget to take a moment and sip a few ounces of water. One way to make sure that you’re getting your fair share of fluids is investing in a handsome water bottle.
We have our eyes set on S’well’s different styles and sizes: the 16oz Traveler Bottle has the perfect contour to fit into your hand while the 17oz Water Bottle parked on your desk is a great reminder to drink up. Both bottles feature triple-walled vacuum insulation technology that keeps your drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12.
If you’re not a fan of heavy and tacky skin-care products, then Clinique for Men is the answer to your moisturizing woes. After cleansing your face, we suggest a layer of Maximum Hydrator—you can opt to apply it in the morning and at night for an instant burst of moisture that could last up to 72 hours. Top off your morning skin-care routine with Broad Spectrum SPF 21 Moisturizer, an oil-free and lightweight moisturizer that also keeps your skin protected from harmful UVA/UVB rays.
There’s no excuse for dehydration and dull skin this season. Have a bottle of water at arms-length and incorporate a few moisturizing steps into your skin-care routine to keep yourself feeling refreshed and ready for the sweltering heat.
