The last couple of weeks have given us very pleasant and warm weather into the summer, and this warm weather will continue in August. While enjoying this prime time of outdoor sports, beach vacations, family outings or simply backyard barbecues, it is easy to become dehydrated. Dehydration means you are losing more fluids than intake. Dehydration can increase the risk of heat exhaustion, heat cramps, and heat stroke, so it is important to replenish all the fluids you lost.
There are different ways to stay hydrated including drink before heading out, bring a water bottle with you to quench thirst anytime and remind yourself to drink during the course of the day with a simple notification on your phone. You can opt for sugar-free iced drinks such as herbal tea or naturally flavored water if you find plain water a bit boring. Avoid the caffeinated kind as it increases urine frequency, meaning you would loose more fluids and become dehydrated faster.
In today's blog we would like to share a refreshing recipe with Peptan collagen peptides to help you keep hydrated while boosting your skin moisture.
This thirst quenching drink can moisturize skin and build up collagen from the inside for skin beauty. Containing 10g Peptan collagen peptides per glass, it is high in bioactive protein and a good source of dietary fiber, electrolytes - minerals like potassium, sodium and magnesium (that we sweat out during hot weathers) and also vitamins. These are known for their beneficial properties on skin, this tropical beauty water is the ultimate healthy beauty drink for skin and body hydration.
Due to the excellent solubility property of Peptan collagen peptides, this recipe is extremely easy to prepare and you can bring it with you in your water bottle.
Fill in your water bottle (let's say it's a 450ml bottle) with chilled coconut water. Coconut water can be purchased from your local supermarkets. Add 25g of Peptan collagen peptides into the water bottle with coconut water, this is equivalent to approximately 2 tablespoons of Peptan. Shake well and your hydration boost is ready to go.
Enjoy the summer!
