The Benefits of Drinking Water for Your Skin
Drinking an adequate amount of water daily is important for overall good health because water aids in digestion, circulation, absorption and even excretion.
But what about drinking large amounts of water for proper skin health? Claims have been made that drinking water gives you a radiant, healthy, younger- looking complexion, while others say it has no effect on skin's appearance whatsoever.
Which is true?
The fact is that skin is an organ, and just like any other part of the body. your skin is made up of cells. And skin cells, like any other cell in the body, are made up of water. Without water, the organs will certainly not function properly or at their best.
What is the best way to add water to the skin?
Drink more water
Drinking at least 8 glasses a day will help rid the body and skin of toxins. Everyone will not agree that water consumption will improve skin… but it certainly can't hurt. Many people often report that by increasing their water intake, their skin has a more radiant glow. Those who suffer from acne have reported the same results. Nothing will happen overnight, but even a good couple of weeks of increasing water intake should be enough for you to see how hydration affects your own skin.
Apply a hydrating moisturizer within 2 minutes of leaving the bath or shower
The skin is still porous and is vulnerable to products that are applied following the bath or shower, allowing better absorption.
How does water fasting work?
According to one theory, toxins or body waste is stored in extra fat cells of the body. When the body gets only water and no nutrition, it will derive required energy from stored fat. So stored fat cells will be released and utilized and the toxins will be flushed out of the body.
