Hydrate for Party Season

Our best advice for looking and feeling good over Christmas is to drink more water, especially Pure H2O.

No matter what you put on your skin, hydrating from the inside out – preferably with plenty of pure water – is the best way to get your skin looking and feeling plump, soft and glowing, and to mitigate the harsh effects of heating systems and winter weather.

If you really suffer from persistently dry, irritated skin then consider a water softener. Our softeners remove the damaging deposits in hard tap water and deliver some great benefits; your skin is more comfortable, hair is softer and as a bonus, appliances and heating systems last longer and clothes come out of the wash softer, too.

Staying on top of your hydration levels is also vital for your brain. Whether you’re busy at work, rushing around doing the Christmas shopping or baking the mince pies at home, drink plenty of water. Even very mild dehydration negatively affects your ability to think clearly, brings down your mood and crashes your energy levels.

And as for enjoying festive celebrations, don’t forget to alternate every alcoholic drink with a glass of water – it really will help you pace yourself and avoid a hangover!

Top Tips for Beautiful Winter Skin

Central heating indoors and cold weather outdoors means dry skin on the face and hands, with tightness, redness, irritation, itchiness and sensitivity even for ‘normal’ skins, let alone sensitive skins and those with conditions like eczema which are prone to flare ups due to environmental conditions.

We’ve got 3 top tips for beautiful winter skin – and naturally, they’re all about water.

1. Hydrate – from the inside. Moisturisers, serums, toners and the like claim to boost hydration, plumpness and softness, but the most fundamental, beneficial thing you can do for your skin – and your health overall – is hydrate from the inside out by drinking plenty of water. And if you’re prone to break outs even with dry winter skin, good news – hydration boosts clarity, too. We know that RODI pure water is best – free from impurities like pesticides, petrochemicals, medications and metals – its pure, hydrating and supports your health.

2. Moderate water temperature. A long soak in a hot bath or standing under a steaming shower is bliss after being out in the cold, but really hot water is your enemy, not your friend – it breaks down the skin’s natural lipid barrier, resulting in dryer skin that’s more easily irritated. So don’t have the hottest bath you can bear, just one that’s soothingly warm. For handwashing in the kitchen, Quatreau – our multifunction kitchen tap – is a big help as it delivers the perfect water temperature right away (as well as instant Boiling, Sparkling and Chilled filtered and pure water) – thanks to it thermostatic control pre-set to the perfect temperature.

3. Invest in a softener. 60% percent of the UK’s population live in hard water areas. Softeners remove hard water impurities that create lime scale and scum and contribute to dry skin, leaving soft, hydrated skin, manageable hair, and the great news is it’s effective with eczema and psoriasis. Research suggests that contact with hard water can exacerbate eczema, either because you have to use more soap to get a lather, or because the scum particles of hard water itself (which stay on materials such as clothes and bed linen after laundry day) irritate the skin.

So, that’s 3 ways to combat dry, irritated skin this winter:

1: Hydrate with Pure Water  – we have 3 purifiers to suit your needs and budget, all with a monthly rental option.

2: Moderate water temperature – our Quatreau Tap helps in the kitchen by dispensing the perfect pre-set temperature for hand washing and rinsing.

3: Invest in a softener for calmer, softer skin, even if you suffer from eczema or psoriasis.

Grazia Magazine: Pure H2O is better than flavoured waters

Grazia really got us thinking this morning with this article by Eve Kalinik. Firstly, who knew Kale could be problematic? Second on the list of minefield ‘healthy’ choices is water:

Grazia_14.10.15

Pure H2O better than flavoured water

So why is Pure H2O so much better than flavoured waters? And what about bottled water or tap water?

As Eve says, flavoured waters often have so many additives that make them taste okay, if artificial, but the additives themselves can be problematic to your health. Tap water contains a whole host of impurities including pesticides, chemicals, hormones and medications and as we all know, often tastes just horrible – especially when it’s going through one of its over-chlorinated phases! Unfortunately bottled water carries a heavy environmental burden due to food miles and resource degradation, and many people are keen to avoid the further environmental impact of plastics, as well as the health concerns.

Pure H2O is simply that – pure water. It’s better for you, your health and the environment.

We have 3 water purifier options to suit everyone’s needs and budgets. We’ve just rolled out our rental option to all our purifiers, so everyone can enjoy the benefits of unlimited Reverse Osmosis pure water for less than £1 a day!

Thanks Eve for recommending Grazia’s readers check out The Pure H2O Co. for information on clean water. We love to post helpful articles on water, nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices and look forward to welcoming you all to Pure H2O.

Eve Kalinik on Pure H2O: brighter, vibrant and improved energy levels.

We like to get to our know our clients a little better, and this month we had the pleasure of chatting to top nutritional therapist, writer and all round wellbeing guru Eve Kalinik. Eve recently had a Pure H2O purifier installed at home and is already feeling the benefits. Read on to find out more…

Q. We heard that you’re very much enjoying your Pure H2O water purifier and that in fact it’s changed your life! Could you tell us a bit more about that?

Generally I don’t think most of us are really aware that the type of water we are drinking truly affects the way we feel and on a very basic level function optimally. When you think that 60-70% of the body is entirely made up of water and most cellular processes happen in a water environment its suddenly clearly evident why the kind of water we drink has such an impact. Most of us have invested in some kind of filter or buy bottled water thinking its a better choice and one could arguably say thats true until you have tried pure filtered water. Getting people better hydrated is a huge part of my practise and to have something I can recommend like the Pure h2o system that is relatively inexpensive means that it is accessible for everyone and anyone.

Q. What sparked your interest in pure water, and how did you first hear about The Pure H2O Co.?

I started researching water for a piece I was writing for my monthly column for Psychologies magazine and realised that water filtration can go way beyond a simple system. Its much more complicated than that. This is when I came across the Pure H2o Co and believe that they have developed the very best systems on the market. Extremely well researched, convenient and most importantly delicious tasting water. More than that the team themselves were extremely knowledgable and personable.

Q. What kind of water did you drink before switching to Pure H2O?

I either bought glass bottled water where at all possible or more regularly from a stand alone EVA filter in my house (which I now know wasn’t really doing very much!). The problem with buying glass bottles is long term the environmental impact isn’t so great.

Q. Do your water and / or hot drinks taste different since having a purifier installed?

Completely! Its like the difference between drinking a good or a great wine. In fact I think this is going to be the next big thing!

Q. What were your reasons for switching to Pure H2O?

I wanted a cleaner fuel for the tank so to speak and if you are going to buy organic foods, non GMO, natural beauty products etc then really pure water needs to be top of the list.

Q. How do you feel now you drink Pure H2O?

I have to say that since using the Pure H2O filtration system I can genuinely say that I feel much brighter, vibrant and my energy levels have certainly improved.

Q. Do you think there’s a correlation between good nutrition and pure water?

Absolutely. On a fundamental level we need water to efficiently and consistently manage processes in the body but the quality of the water we are drinking can be the marked difference of what is an ok system or a great system. Most clients that I see will tell me that they have energy slumps throughout the day which is often down to not being properly hydrated and they say this is because they don’t like water or don’t have time. Its my job to get them to engage with this and drink regularly. Believe me once they start drinking this kind of water they suddenly start to really enjoy it.

Q. Do you feel that Pure H2O is supporting your decisions about the food you drink and the kind of lifestyle you lead, in terms of your wellbeing?

It all goes hand in hand. It is arbitrary to be spending good money on organic fruit and vegetables if you are then going to wash them in water that isn’t clean. And how can you get the best out of your exercise or holistic practises such as meditation without taking in clean water?

Q. What do you think are the main benefits of drinking RODI pure water?

A more efficient overall system, increased energy, improved detoxification, better digestion, clearer skin…need I go on!

Q. In what circumstances would you recommend people drink Pure H2O?

Very simply anyone, anywhere and as much as possible.

Q. Were concerns – environmental and / or health – surrounding the use of plastics a factor in your decision to have a Pure H2O purifier installed?

Yes of course. Lets be clear here that plastics are very hard on the environment, you only have to do a tiny bit of research to find that out. There is also the leaching of xenoestrogens and other chemicals that can have an impact on health. Most water companies will be transparent about this but its not a nice thought on any level.
