H2O Is Never a No, No for Your Skin
Similar to how you know to look both ways before crossing the street and to never trust someone selling Rolex’s from a trench coat, you know you should be drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day. As your body’s number one source of energy and hydration, it does more than just keep your organs functioning properly— it also helps your skin. So, what kind of magic can water do for your skin? Read on to learn more.
Look More Youthful
If you were to look at an individual with dehydrated skin next to one with hydrated skin, you would notice that the person with more hydration looks more youthful. By aiding in the production of collagen and overall hydration, water is considered to be the real fountain of youth for your skin.
Feels More Comfortable
We’ve all experienced dry, flaking skin— especially after spending too much time out in the sun. Water is one of the best ways to help your skin feel more comfortable overall. By cutting down on the flakiness and helping it stay moisturized, water will make your skin softer and more supple.
Although beneficial, drinking water is the only way to ensure that your skin stays hydrated. By applying a thick moisturizing cream both morning and night, you can help to lock in the moisture and prevent things like fine lines and wrinkles from forming. Additionally, wearing a moisturizing sunscreen every day will shield your skin from the sun’s harsh rays which are notorious for drying your skin out.
