March 8th is recognized internationally as Women’s Day and is a celebration of women as well as an acknowledgment of persistent gender inequality. Today, Whistler Water would like to acknowledge some of the ways in which women’s health is affected by water:
- Drinking water can help your skin stay hydrated and looking radiant by ensuring it doesn’t dry out.
- Different water temperatures have different affects on your skin. Warm water opens pores up for cleansing and cold water closes pores to protect against dirt and other contaminants.
- Water creates bodily fluids like sweat. Drinking enough water enables your body to sweat, which regulates your body temperature.
- A drop in body fluid levels can instantly make you feel tired and drowsy. Be proactive about staying hydrated to keep your energy levels up all day.
- The oxygen and electrolytes contained in water is delivered to muscle cells to keep them strong and healthy.
- Your mood and cognitive ability are improved when water delivers oxygen to your brain cells.
- Your joints and cartilage are lubricated by water. Stay hydrated to promote healthy movement.
- Staying hydrated keeps you regular by maintaining the proper balance of fluids in your digestion system.
- Minerals, vitamins, hormones, enzymes and antibodies travel in water. Staying hydrated allows these molecules to get where they need to go to do their job.
Health is am important part of living a fulfilling life, and staying hydrated makes a huge contribution to your health. Be kind to yourself and your family by ensuring everyone stays hydrated.
From everyone at Whistler Water, we wish you a happy and healthy Women’s Day!
