How to stay hydrated for your Diwali party

Yes, we are sure you have been invited to several Diwali parties. And who knows, you might be throwing one of your own. You need to plan well in advance to make sure everything goes fine. Your outfit, accessories, footwear, makeup, menu, friends and invitees – everything needs to fall in place.

But there is another aspect that you need to take care of – your hydration levels. Your body needs to be well-hydrated for you to look your best. If you do not drink enough fluids, you are likely to feel tired and look tired, regardless of what kind of makeup you use.

Fortunately, it is easy enough to keep your hydration levels high. All you need to do is follow some basic rules. Here’s what you need to know.

  • Drink plenty of water the day before the party

Actually, you should drink enough water throughout your life. Water provides hydration to every single cell of your body, and hydrated cells work efficiently to absorb nutrients and expel waste. While the rule of thumb is six to eight glasses every day, you will need different quantities in summers and winters. Moreover, certain conditions also demand more water. If you are into heavy exercise, are pregnant, or have a health condition, you would need more water.

It does not matter much if you forget to have the mandated requirement of water on some days. But you absolutely must hydrate your body with plenty of fluids before a long day out, or a night event. So, make sure you have as much water as you can the night before the Diwali party.

  • Wear breathable fabric

Choose your Diwali outfit carefully, depending upon the weather, and how long you expect the party to last. If you live in a hot/humid place, make sure you were cotton. Cotton is light, versatile and makes you look cool. The underlying point is that you need fabric that breathes. It will help you stay fresh longer, and remain sweat-free.

  • Do not over-indulge in alcohol

If at all you fancy alcoholic drinks, make sure you space them adequately. Stay away from hard drinks such as rum, bourbon, or red wine. Not only do they give you a terrible hangover, they also dehydrate your body faster than some other drinks. Stick to lighter drinks such as beer, vodka, gin, or white wine. And do not get pressurized into having a drink just because someone is drinking non-stop, or some smart alec challenges you or teases you about it.

Take simple precautions and have a great Diwali.
