Water and You: Healthier Skin

We know water is healthy for all of us, but did you know that drinking plenty of water each day can make your skin look and feel healthier too? So just what can water do to help our skin?

  • Like all other parts of your body, your skin is an organ. The cells that make up your skin are made of water, which means drinking plenty of fluids allows the cells to remain hydrated and function properly. 
  • Lack of hydration will quickly appear right before your eyes. If you’re not drinking enough water each day your skin will soon become dry, tight and flaky. And dry skin is of course one of the leading factors for wrinkles that we all try so hard to avoid.
  • Water assists in the flushing out of harmful toxins from the body. When not properly hydrated our cells, like those in our skin, have difficulty removing the toxins. These toxins can then build up in the skin pores which can contribute to acne.
  • As summer quickly approaches, some amount of sunburn is almost inevitable. But if your skin gets burnt after a day of fun outdoors, water can help. Sunburn can cause dehydration, so drinking plenty of water can help your body heal itself from the sun damage.

As our bodies lose water each day from thinks like sweating, it’s important to replace it  as often as possible. Drinking at least eight glasses of water each day is the most widely known recommendation. And making sure the water you drink is the most pure possible ensures that you’re not putting harmful chemicals or microorganisms into your body that can do even more harm. And don’t forget, these particles can also damage and dry your skin when average tap water is used for showering.
