For every woman, the desire is to have an ageless skin – to look younger than her real age, to put it succinctly. While some spend a fortune to achieve this, others leave it to fate. There are some, however, who have discovered a less expensive, healthy and easy way to achieve that ageless skin. “What might that be?” you may ask? Water is it! Sure, water is a universal substance whose benefits cannot be overemphasized.
Drinking water is especially of great importance. Water gives you energy; it aids in digestion and keeps the organs of the body working properly well. It also keeps the mind sharp and flushes out toxins. However, one other immense benefit of water is that it can take a few years off your real age. Yes, water has the ability to make you look younger than you really are!
The human skin is an organ made up of cells, and cells are made up of water. When the skin does not get enough water, the organs do not function properly as they should and this lack of sufficient hydration will start to show on the skin by making the skin dry, flaky and tight. This dry, tight and flaky skin then finds expression in wrinkling of the skin.
With our day-to-day activities, routines or lifestyle comes stress. When you are stressed, it also shows off directly on your skin and you start to look older. For some, the excuse is that their daily activities leave them no time to drink sufficient water, but this is an effort we must all make. That’s because, to enjoy an ageless skin, it is so crucial to maintaining a healthy moisture barrier. Drinking a lot of water on a daily basis helps to keep the body and the skin well hydrated from within. Accompany this with eating fruits and vegetables high in water and you are on your way to achieving that ageless skin.
Drinking a lot of water is not the only way to replenish your body and help your skin look good. Of all the organs of the body, the skin is the last organ water gets to. So, you want to make sure that while endeavoring to drink sufficient water, you are also applying water to the skin. Some of the best ways you can apply water to your skin is by applying a hydrating moisturizer minutes after getting out of the shower. This allows for better absorption of the moisturizer applied. Then, you could also try applying products that have hyaluronic acid as part of the ingredients. This ingredient holds 1000 times its own weight in water. So, it will help to attract water to the skin and hold it right there.
Staying well hydrated is important for our overall good health. So, whether it is for beauty or for general health, it will not hurt to try out these take-outs and see if it works or not.
