The best can sometimes be as simple as a glass of water. As clichéd as this topic is, there’s a reason for the oft repeated advice to drink 8 glasses of water a day. The importance of staying hydrated cannot be stressed enough.
Our body is comprised of almost 60% water and we lose water through perspiration everyday even when you’re not working out or obviously profusely sweating. This persistent loss of water can have a profound impact on your overall health.
Water is important for organ function and as the largest organ of your body, your skin can get damaged if it’s not getting sufficient amount of water. A lack of hydration in your body will show up in your skin by turning it dry, tight, and flaky. This condition of skin makes it less resilient to environmental stresses and more prone to premature signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines. Drinking enough water is one of the cheapest and easiest anti-aging treatments available. It keeps your skin moisturized, soft,and supple by improving skin elasticity and resilience. This in turn eases the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. We hope this has you reaching for a glass of water!
Keeping yourself well hydrated also assists the body in flushing harmful toxins out of your body. It improves kidney function and increased sweating ensures the lymphatic system is working efficiently at ridding your body of toxins. Water is also responsible for removing dead cells and waste material. Moreover, when you drink water, it carries hormones, nutrients, and even oxygen to your body organs. It also enables proteins and various enzymes to function properly as well as they require plenty of water. Not only does this increase your metabolism and improve overall organ function, it also contributes to a glowing and brighter skin complexion. A win-win if there ever was one!
It also helps in balancing your pH levels which not only ensure proper functioning of consumed minerals and vitamins but also support the flow of oxygen through the body. It can also help improve your mood and reduce fatigue and exhaustion. This leads to an overall feeling of better health which also has a positive effect on the quality of your skin.
So go ahead and take the plunge – carry a bottle with you throughout the day to ensure you are well hydrated and watch your skin come alive from the inside out!
