Water for the rest of the body and mental health - Koils by Nature

The Healing Power of WATER- for the skin, hair and ENTIRE body

All too often, when we’re suffering from some dysfunction inside or outside of our bodies, we resort to pharmaceutical solutions, even quasi-natural medications. And many times these medications have uncomfortable, or even dangerous side effects. So what if the answer to all of your problems was in a glass of water?


Okay, no, we are not about to make the claim that water is the be all and end all remedy. If only it were! But what we are trying to highlight is the healing powers of water for the entire body, from dry hair, to acne, all the way to insomnia and stress. In this article we’ll explore all the healing benefits of water on different areas of the body. Obviously we don't secretly work for water companies like American Water or Poland Spring, we just want to generate a supportive and incredibly healthy community. Let’s have a look at the effects of water on the hair, skin, body and mind. 


How your skin benefits from increased water intake

Believe it or not, your skin is the largest organ of the entire body. Your skin is made up of an abundance of cells, which are made up of water. When the cells are dehydrated they will not function properly, and this will show in the condition of the skin. Dehydrated skin cells usually signal its thirst when the skin is dry and flaky. Dehydrated skin can lead to wrinkles as well. Many have claimed that when they started to increase their water intake, they noticed how, overtime, their acne cleared, if not completely, a sufficient amount, The fact of the matter is, the water you drink throughout the day will reach the skin as its final stop. So, if you’re not drinking enough water, your skin will certainly let you know! 


How to hydrate your hair with more water

One of the top concerns when it comes to hair, especially kinky or curly hair, is dry hair. If your hair feels extremely dry, whether it's genetic, hormonal or environmental, you will want to start with a water remedy. When the body doesn’t have sufficient water, as mentioned above, it starts to take from other body parts, most notably, your hair. Start by incorporating more filtered water in your diet and less dehydrating caffeinated beverages. Because no, drinking a lot of coffee throughout the day doesn’t count as hydrating your body, it actually does the opposite! 


Secondly, if you live in a hard water area, then it’s recommended to install a water filter over your showerhead. You don’t have to go all out and buy a filtered system for your whole house, you can simply twist one onto your showerhead and change the filter every 8 months or so, depending on the type of filter you choose. It's also recommended to leave your hair uncovered when you shower, even on non-wash days, because your hair will absorb the moisture from the steam of your shower. If after a few weeks of adding more water to your diet and a filter to your shower you don't see any changes, then you can always turn to natural hydrating conditioners, or leave in conditioners for an extra boost. Water and natural conditioners make a wonderful team. 


Water for the rest of the body and mental health

Nearly 75% of brain tissue is made up of water. When the body doesn't have enough water, brain functions slow down. Low water levels in the body can make us more vulnerable to stress, depression and a weaker immune system. In fact, dehydration is often the number one stress factor in the body. By drinking more watered, we aid our digestive organs for healthy digestion throughout the day, it aids in weight loss, regulates body temperature, lubricates joints, and dissolves minerals and nutrients making them more accessible and easily absorbed by the body. 



Our last bits about water

Drinking at least eight glasses of water a day will help the body eliminate toxins through the kidneys and liver. Mayo Clinic actually recommends 11.5 cups for women and 15.5 cups for men. If you already drink that much, try not to drink it all too quickly. Overloading the body with water in one moment will make it too difficult for the body to absorb, and it will therefore flush all the water out without absorbing any goodness. Go for herbal teas during the cooler months, and flavor your water with cucumbers, mint leaves and lemon for a refreshing drink throughout the year.
