Hydration Hacks: Conquering Winter with BIBO

Winter is here, and with it comes chilly winds and dry indoor heating (in between Loadshedding stages of course) that can leave us feeling parched, dehydrated and just a little grumpier – if that’s possible. Staying hydrated is essential year-round, but like getting out of bed in the morning, it can be especially challenging during the winter months. 

Luckily, BIBO is here to save the day and ensure you stay hydrated, even in the coldest of temperatures and with the least amount of electricity, hopefully managing to improve your mood in the process. Let’s dive into some hydration hacks that will keep you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated this winter!

1. Warm Up with Hot Herbal Infusions:

When the winter chill sets in, hot beverages become a comforting necessity. But instead of reaching for caffeine-laden options, why not try hot herbal infusions? With the BIBO express, you can have instant boiling water at your fingertips, ready to brew a soothing cup of herbal tea. Experiment with flavors like chamomile, ginger, or peppermint to warm your body and hydrate your soul. Herbal infusions not only provide hydration but also offer various health benefits, such as aiding digestion or promoting relaxation. We hope Cyril is reading this, too!


2. Stay Fizzy with Sparkling Water:

Plain water can feel dull and uninspiring, especially in winter when the cloud are doing that enough for you. Add some sparkle to your hydration routine with the BIBO fizz. Transform plain water into a refreshing, fizzy delight. Mix in a squeeze of lemon or a few drops of your favourite fruit essence for an invigorating twist. The BIBO fizz will keep your taste buds engaged and make hydrating a fun experience. Plus, sparkling water can help quench your thirst and satisfy your craving for something bubbly without any added sugars or artificial flavours.


3. Create Hydration Stations:

Place BIBO bars strategically throughout your home and office to create hydration stations. These stylish devices provide both hot and cold water options, making it convenient to grab a drink anytime. Whether you’re in the living room, boardroom, or kitchen, having a BIBO bar nearby will serve as a constant reminder to stay hydrated. Decorate your hydration stations with fresh fruits, herbs, or even motivational quotes to make them visually appealing and inviting.


4. Flavorful Fruit Infusions:

Winter doesn’t mean you have to give up on delicious, fruity drinks. Use the BIBO fizz to infuse your water with slices of fresh fruits like oranges, berries, or cucumbers. Not only will this add a burst of flavour, but it will also encourage you to drink more water throughout the day. Fruit-infused water is a great way to stay hydrated and enjoy the vibrant tastes. Get creative and experiment with different combinations to find your perfect winter infusion.


5. Set Reminders:

With the hustle and bustle of winter activities, it’s easy to forget to drink enough water. Set reminders on your phone or use a hydration tracking app to ensure you’re getting your daily dose of H2O. Pair these reminders with a visit to your nearest BIBO product for a quick, refreshing drink. You can also personalize your reminders by adding motivational messages or setting specific goals, like finishing a certain amount of water by a particular time. (You’re a water-consuming champion). These reminders will keep hydration at the forefront of your mind and help you establish a healthy winter routine.


6. Embrace Warm Soups and Broths:

In addition to drinking water, you can also boost your hydration by incorporating warm soups and broths into your winter diet. Whether it’s a hearty vegetable soup or a comforting bone broth, these liquid-based meals provide both hydration and nourishment. Use the BIBO express to quickly heat water for instant soups or to reheat leftovers, making it easy to enjoy a warm, hydrating meal.


7. Moisturize from Within:

Winter not only affects your body’s hydration levels but also takes a toll on your skin. Chemical peels are pricy and involve leaving the house (ew), so combat dryness by moisturizing from within. The BIBO bar provides cold water options, allowing you to stay refreshed and keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. Additionally, you can use cold water to rinse your face, as it helps to close pores and retain moisture. Drinking enough water and using cold water on your skin will work together to combat the effects of winter and keep you glowing from the inside out. Summer skin is made in winter!


8. Prioritize Electrolyte Balance:

During the winter, we often overlook the importance of electrolyte balance in our hydration routine. Electrolytes, such as sodium, potassium, and magnesium, help regulate fluid balance in the body. To replenish electrolytes and stay hydrated, consider incorporating electrolyte-rich foods and beverages into your winter diet. Use the BIBO fizz to make your own electrolyte drink by adding a pinch of sea salt, a squeeze of lemon, and a dash of honey to sparkling water. This homemade electrolyte drink will help replenish essential minerals and keep your hydration levels in check.


This winter, don’t let the cold weather dampen your hydration goals. Embrace the convenience and versatility of BIBO products to stay hydrated and healthy – while being damn stylish doing it. From hot herbal infusions to sparkling water creations and hydration stations, BIBO is your trusted companion. Beat the winter dryness and embrace a season of optimal hydration.
