One of the simplest but yet most effective health and beauty tips can be summed up in three words: ‘drink spring water’. Just like all other organs, the skin is made up of cells that require water to function. When your skin cells aren’t sufficiently hydrated, the appearance of your skin suffers, making you look older than your years. The fact is your skin is an organ, and just like any other part of the body, it is made up of cells. And skin cells, like any other cell in the body, are made up of water. Without water, the organs certainly cannot function properly at their best.
You can be wondering so what does all these mean to your beauty regimen? A lot actually! Most people are always looking for the next miracle product to keep their skin looking healthy and young. However, there is one essential, inexpensive, and often overlooked nutrient right at their fingertips – water. Let’s have a closer look at the ways water helps keep the skin glowing.
Water is lost in large quantities every day and it needs to be replaced somehow. The truth about drinking water and skin is that water will reach all the other organs before it reaches the skin. If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling. Drinking water gives you a radiant, healthy, younger-looking complexion.
Severely dehydrated people have pronounced sunken eyes. Mildly dehydrated people suffer from dark circles and their natural smile lines turn into crow’s feet. You may be able to cut back on the concealer just by drinking enough water every day. Simple isn’t it?
Now that you know about the wonders of water to your skin, just how much is enough? Drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily and more if you are exercising, perspiring, and/or in hot weather will help rid the body and skin of toxins. Don’t expect something to happen overnight as it is a gradual process but increasing your water intake for a couple of weeks is enough to catch the glow that proper hydration produces for your skin.
