Hello, hydration! In the hot summer months, keeping our bodies well-hydrated is a vital cornerstone of overall well-being. Read on to learn how to create a holistic wellness ritual using HiraHydrate™ Ultimate Hydration Duo to quench your body's thirst and achieve radiant skin for confidence that glows from the inside out.
1. Fuel Your Inner Glow With Natural Electrolytes & Copper
In order to optimize the day with lasting, healthy hydration, we need a routine that replenishes the body both inside and out! This 3-ingredient elixir requires nothing more than a few natural ingredients you likely already have in your kitchen and is the ultimate wake-up call to replenish electrolytes, kickstart your metabolism, and set the stage for a balanced day. Just after waking (and before you pour that morning cup of coffee!) combine 8 oz. of room temperature water, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, and a pinch of himalayan sea salt.
How It Works:
The combination of fresh lemon juice, salt, and water helps replenish essential electrolytes lost during sleep and jumpstarts your body's natural processes. Electrolytes, such as sodium, potassium, and magnesium, are electrically charged minerals that play a crucial role in maintaining proper fluid balance, nerve function, and muscle contractions. When you wake up, your body has been fasting for hours, causing a natural depletion of these vital electrolytes. The lemon's natural acidity stimulates digestive enzymes, aiding in optimal nutrient absorption and setting the stage for efficient electrolyte uptake. The pinch of salt, sourced from natural sea minerals, replenishes sodium and other trace minerals, enhancing hydration and supporting cellular communication. And the best part? Because you’ve set your body’s natural processes up for success first thing in the morning, you may find that you don’t need that cup of coffee after all!
Priti Tip: In order to maintain healthy hydration levels all day long, on-the-go replenishment is a must. Our 32 oz. Copper Wellness Water Bottle is crafted of 100% pure copper and allows you to maximize your hydration routine by gently ionizing the water stored in the vessel. This alkaline water helps to detoxify the system and lowers the temperature of the body, which is especially helpful during the hot summer months! Just be sure to leave out the lemon and sea salt from the first step, as they can harm the natural copper.
2. Draw Moisture Deep Into the Skin
Now that we’ve replenished our body on the inside, it’s time to move on to skincare. Begin by cleansing skin of any dirt and oil your skin may have produced overnight with a gentle cleanser such as DeviDetox™ Purifying Facial Cleanser. Pat skin dry with a clean towel and prepare to hydrate! SundaSkin™, our Essential Hydrating Serum, is the first step in our HiraHydrate™ Ultimate Hydration Duo. Take ½ a dropperful and squeeze into the palm of your hand and pat gently all over your face and neck.
How It Works:
An effective serum supports a plump, youthful complexion by working to address symptoms of dehydration before they can appear on the skin’s surface! SundaSkin’s technologically advanced formula absorbs at the same rate as water and can easily pass through the skin barrier due to its molecular structure to bring key ingredients deep into the skin’s inner layer. White Snow Mushroom, known as “The Moisture Magnet” draws moisture deep beneath the skin’s surface resulting in dramatically plump, bright and hydrated skin. Sodium Hyaluronate provides a film former to help lock in moisture and smooth fine lines and Niacinamide helps to rebuild healthy skin cells and protect skin from environmental stressors. In tandem these three holy-grail hydrators transform skin from within to dramatically improve elasticity and create a healthy and hydrated base for the next step in your routine.
3. Lock In Hydration
SapnaSoft™ The Essential Hydrating Moisturizer is the second step in our HiraHydrate™ Ultimate Hydration Duo and is specifically formulated to lock in deep, lasting moisture all day long. Warm, summer months can notoriously take a toll on our skin health. By providing skin with a cooling dose of moisture before makeup, you can prevent water loss from the body that leads to dehydration and keep skin plump and youthful. Scoop a generous amount with our custom copper spatula (included in the duo set!) and massage onto face, neck, and décolleté using upward motions.
How It Works:
Our skin’s natural response to dehydrating elements such as the sun and summer heat is to increase the production of sebum in an attempt to rehydrate itself. Without proper moisturization and sebum-regulation, this can result in skin symptoms such as excess oil, inflammation, and increased blemishes. SapnaSoft™ is formulated with a unique blend of powerhouse Ayurvedic ingredients and technologically advanced actives that impart deep moisture, form a protective barrier on the skin, and allow skin’s hydration levels to remain consistent throughout the day. Sea Buckthorn Berry’s high concentration of omega fatty acids (Omega 3, 6, 7, and 9) naturally support the skin’s lipid barrier to prevent water loss while Natural Ceramides create a protective layer that further prevent moisture loss while protecting skin from environmental stressors.
4. Prepare For A Restful Night’s Sleep
In as little as five minutes, a mindful meditation practice can help us to wind down, clear our subconscious, and support the body’s natural processes to prepare for a restful night of sleep. Check out a step-by-step tutorial of our Mindful Meditation Practice here!
How It Works:
During sleep, our bodies undergo a natural rejuvenation process, where cellular repair and regeneration take place. When combined with meditation, this nightly renewal reaches new heights. Meditation's calming effects help reduce stress hormones, contributing to improved sleep quality. As you engage in mindfulness and meditation before bed, you create an environment conducive to deep and uninterrupted sleep. This tranquil state allows your skin cells to repair and renew more effectively, optimizing their ability to retain moisture and enhance overall hydration.
These daily rituals are the ultimate way to replenish skin both inside and out, support our body’s natural systems, and take on the day with a healthy and hydrated glow. Remember, Ayurvedic medicine is all about balance! Holistic wellness is a constantly improving, life-long process, and you don’t have to overhaul your routine to be well. Gradually incorporate these habits into your daily routine and increase them as you feel comfortable over time. Your skin and soul will thank you!
