We are all aware that water is essential to our bodies. The health benefits of drinking water goes on and on, but did you know that water plays a huge role in the health of our skin? Here’s why you should become BFFs with water!
Our skin is the largest organ
Our skin is an organ, and just like any other part of the body, it is made up of cells. Skin cells are consisted of mostly water, and without water, our skin will not function at its best. Our skin is the largest organ and is the barrier that protects us from the external environment. Water is essential to keep that barrier intact.
How much water should you drink?
The recommended average amount of water a woman should drink in a day is 11 cups, and for males is 15 cups. Every body is different so make sure to adjust your hydration habits according to your lifestyle!
Can you count drinking water as a skincare step?
Although drinking water is essential for your skin cells, drinking water alone isn’t adding enough moisture to be considered a skincare step. Drinking water benefits your overall health and wellness, but it is just as important to make sure that you are hydrating your skin from the outside as well.
Tip: Use a humidifier during dry seasons to prevent your skin from turning dry. You can use it anytime of the day—even while sleeping.
Drinking water is not only essential for skin, but also your overall wellness. Make sure to keep your hydration levels high to avoid dry and flaky skin—as dry skin is more prone to wrinkles. We hope these tips help you and water become best friends forever!
