Im­prove your well­be­ing the nat­u­ral way with our health and beauty round-up

When out walk­ing, don’t wait un­til you get thirsty to stop and have a drink. Even mild de­hy­dra­tion can cause prob­lems, such as weak­ness, dizzi­ness and fa­tigue – it can also af­fect your abil­ity to con­cen­trate. Ac­cord­ing to one study by the Univer­sity of Con­necti­cut, women are more sus­cep­ti­ble to the ad­verse ef­fects. Signs you’re dehydrated can in­clude a dry mouth and lips, headaches or feel­ing a bit sleepy. How­ever, be­ing thirsty means de­hy­dra­tion is al­ready set­ting in, so keep fluid lev­els topped up, es­pe­cially in warm weather, by car­ry­ing a re­fill­able bot­tle with you. The Root7 Citrus Zinger (£20, root7.com) is per­fect, es­pe­cially if you don’t like plain water, as it has a gad­get to in­fuse fresh lemon, lime, kiwi or cu­cum­ber on the go.
