Your skin contains approx. 64% water (depending on age, gender etc) which makes your skin looks healthy. However, too much heat and exposure to other harmful elements can cause dryness to your skin. This is the main reason why drinking water is necessary for your skin and brain’s health. Drinking plenty of water will keep your whole body healthy.
You’ve heard it all before – celebrities and models saying that the secret towards their supple, glowing, always camera ready skin is to drink lots of water every day. While this claim might sound simple and easy, it’s true. Yes, drinking a lot of water can make a whole lot difference to your skin. Less water intake can make your skin appear duller, and wrinkles and pores are more prominent.
Water makes a big difference in skin’s health. If you think of your skin like a sponge, when the sponge is dry, it contracts, shrivels and becomes rigid making it difficult to bend. Put the sponge in water and it will immediately expand and return to its original shape and size. Just like a sponge, your skin needs that moisture to expand and return to its glowing state. When you drink water, you are refreshing your skin and allowing it to function as it was designed to do and this makes you look healthy and glowing.
By drinking water, your skin will look plumper and the sign of ageing are minimized – pores are less visible and wrinkles are less likely to appear. Isn’t it amazing what a plain drink of water can do to your skin?
Keeping your skin hydrated all the time can keep your skin look younger and healthy. Every day, aim for 8 – 10 glass of water. Drinking enough water will also improve your general health. Drink your way to more, beautiful and healthy skin – drink water! Remember in hot weather or times of large amounts of exercise, when you are sweating you will need to drive more to replace these losses.
Coffee, tea and alcohol can also dehydrate you.
