Be water my friend...

So many things have been said about water. Some of them as lovely as: “ Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Be water my friend. ”

Water was the inspiration of this unforgettable quote by Bruce Lee. And water should take a leading role in our daily lives.

The data speaks for itself: 70% of the human body is made up of water. What’s more, the brain is 85% water. So it’s not surprising that just 2% dehydration can cause dizziness and a lack of concentration and memory.

In fact, it has been proven that people who drink a lot of water have better immune systems and aren’t as susceptible to catching a cold or the flu. In addition, water helps the muscles to be more flexible and to move better. And of course, it improves the condition and appearance of the skin.

Supplement your daily intake of 2 to 3 litres of water with a good quality cream. This is a ritual we should be following daily, with no exceptions. The best moment to apply cream is after bathing, when your skin is slightly damp, as this favours greater water retention and, since your pores will be more open, the product will penetrate even deeper.

For your body, try our Hydra-Firming Body Lotion cream, perfect for all skin types. For facial skin, try our ampoules. You’ll feel moisturised like never before. What’s more, it will provide brightness and firmness.

At MartiDerm, we are very aware of how important is to be hydrated. In fact, we’re in love with water. How couldn't we be? Water is life.

But our love for water isn’t anything new. Positive references to water have been a constant throughout history. Napoleon stated that water, air, and cleanness were his main pharmacy items. Leonardo da Vinci, on the other hand, spoke about water as the driving force of nature.

Water covers the majority of the planet’s surface. But only 2.5% of it is fresh water, and 0.4% is available to us.

Water speaks to us. Japanese scientist Masaro Emoto tested it. He studied the effects that sounds, words and feelings had on the molecular structure of water. He realised that a simple ‘thank you’ created incredibly beautiful formations in the water molecules. It looks like pure magic, but in fact it’s pure science.

So let’s ask ourselves... What effects could a simple thank you have on human beings, if we are made up of more than 70% water? The conclusion: drink water. And above all, love yourself. #SmartAging philosophy.
