Long hours and days of fasting takes a toll on your normally hydrated skin. Dehydration leads to flaky, dull and dry skin, and that’s one thing we don’t want on our list. Good water intake is vital in keeping skin hydrated, and the good news is that there are other naturally pure water-based solutions that quenches the skin’s thirst and keep it smooth, radiant, and alive.
The Himalayas is the source of one such solution: its mineral rich spring water has a unique combination of calcium, magnesium and potassium: macro minerals that play an important role in cell renewal, supporting the skin barrier and deeply moisturising the skin.
