Definitely not! Sea water contains a high amount of salt which means that if consumed, our body will have to work even harder to get rid of it. The kidneys would have to produce more urine until eventually we would become dehydrated leading to fatal consequences.
However, if you are stuck in the middle of the sea and don’t have access to fresh water, you could boil some sea water, capture the steam and condense it back into water so you’re effectively getting rid of the salt.
If you’re out on your boat this weekend, be sure to pack plenty of fresh water 💦. Ps. It was a Police boat 👮♀️ Take care and stay healthy 😘
We may be coming into winter but that doesn’t mean you should stop looking after your skin.
In fact during these cooler climates it’s important to pay more attention to your skin as it may dry and crack. Regularly moisturise to keep your skin supple and hydrated and don’t forget the sun block for days when the UV index is 3 or higher. And of course, great skin comes from within so make sure you keep yourself well hydrated with plenty of water.
🇳🇿 Happy Australia Day 🇳🇿 Whether you’re on the beach or going for a mountain hike this long weekend, remember, temperatures are soaring so keep hydrated.💦 It’s recommended that men drink 10 cups of fluid a day and women to drink 8, but if you’re exercising or sweating a lot you’ll need more.
Just picked up my Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Uniform!
The best thing about it, is that it features high UV protection. Which will be essential for those days on the field looking after athletes!
In case you didn’t know the Gold Coast Commonwealth games will be the largest sporting event Australia will see this decade! It’s taking place from 4th -15th April and will feature over 6,600 athletes from all over the world.
If you’re out and about always wear sun protection and for more advice and health tips come and see me in clinic.
