Keeping Hydrated this Australia Day
It’s safe to say that Australia Day is definitely one when many like to celebrate in the sun. And whether it is with friends, family or flying solo, time in the sun means hydration is key. Now, hydration to some on Australia Day means beer, champagne, softies and spirits, but in fact these alcoholic drinks act as a diuretic in the body. So whilst the heat touches our skin, and the alcohol swiftly moves water out of our body, it’s important to be conscious of replenishing with high quality sources of hydration and protecting our skin from shriveling up like a lonely prawn on the Barbie. So folks let me introduce you to your best Australia Day mateÔÇª the humble coconut.
Bioglan offers us two incredible products from this superfood. Bioglan Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Bioglan Coconut Water Powder, which will both serve you well in nutrition on and following January 26.
Bioglan Coconut Water Powder can be made into a delicious natural drink served chilled, and is a great drink to entertain with this Australia Day. It’s a source of key electrolytes, primarily magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorous and calcium, which maintain the salts in your body and ensure good hydration. Try swapping completely or alternating your alcohol with coconut water, a slice of citrus and a sprig of herbs. Better still, impress your friends and family (or enjoy for yourself in a quiet moment) with frozen coconut icy poles incorporating fruits, mint and honey for a lovely, refreshing and guilt free treat.
For the skin, sun protection and replenishment is key and it is here we turn to the pantry for Bioglan Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. Coconut oil contains wonderful antioxidants to protect the skin and reduce oxidative damage. Whether it is out in the sun to protect or after sun to cleanse and replenish, coconut oil is a great go-to application for skin hydration. To cleanse after a day in the sun and sand celebrating, apply coconut oil to the body and then shower to reap the greatest benefits to your skin.
