Water is very important for our bodies. We all know that we should drink at least 6-8 glasses of water everyday. Keeping the body well-hydrated ensures that the digestive system is in good working condition and that the skin is healthy, supple and glowing.
1) After Waking Up
2) Before Having a Meal
3) Before a Shower
Before going in for a shower, have 1 glass of water. Drinking a glass of water before you shower, helps to lower the blood pressure and keeps the skin hydrated. Irrespective of whether you are having a hot water shower or a cold water shower, always drink a glass of water before you go in for a bath.
4) Before Going to Bed
It is very important to have a glass of water before going to bed at night. When you sleep, your body is fasting for 7-8 hours straight. In addition to this, your body naturally rejuvenates and repairs itself while you are sleeping. A good sleep also has an anti-ageing effect on your body. Drinking a glass of water before going to bed helps to keep you well-hydrated throughout the night.
Following this system will ensure that your body is well-hydrated throughout the day. In fact, drinking water at the times mentioned above, pretty much covers up the recommended 6-8 glasses of water everyday!
