Body care - Bath and body recipes

What comes to mind when you think about body care and bath and body recipes? I bet you think of all the wonderful, fragrant butters, lotions, balms and creams.

There is no greater pampering than applying a rich, smooth homemade lotion, am I right? Consistent care of skin is a must. Talking about skin - Did you know that there are almost 22 square feet of skin that cover the body of an adult? It weighs 10-11 lbs and comprises almost 16% of total body weight?

With so much skin, how do we begin providing the best body care we can?

The first thing you will hear about skin care is: Hydrate.
Inside and out!
What can water do for you?

Body cells want to maintain a balance of liquid that surrounds them. Lack of water intake can create a imbalance in which the cells start working improperly. Drinking water can help maintain that equilibrium and keep your cells hydrated, both inside and out. There is a strong connection between drinking water and weight loss. Looking better and feeling better, a win-win.

Our reader Aires agrees with me on this one saying: "for great skin, hair & nails: drink water and more water!"

Thank you Aires!

Recommended intake is 6-8 8oz glasses of water a day. This amount is sufficient. While hydrating does a wonderful job keeping our cells active, the skin has to be additionally nourished and treated for the best effect.
