Benefits of Water for Our Skin

Everyone knows that we should drink a minimum of one and a half liters of water daily . We know that it is healthy for our body but exactly why is it good to drink so much water? Does drinking water also affect our physical appearance? What happens if we hardly drink water? The phrase "water is life" is not made by chance. Our body is made up of approximately 60% water, and thanks to this, substances and nutrients are transported from one side to another, in addition, it is a source of energy for our body as well as a regulator of body temperature. However, it must be taken into account that every day we lose a lot of water through sweat, urine and even through breathing. That is why it is necessary to maintain optimal water levels in our body for good hydration and proper functioning of the body. But, in addition to being healthier, what benefits does water have for our physical appearance?
  1. The best treatment against wrinkles. Hydration of the body also includes the skin, and water is the best moisturizer to maintain a smooth and radiant skin, as well as to prevent the appearance of wrinkles due to age. In addition, your hair will also benefit, making it look much shinier and less greasy.
  2. Lose weight in the healthiest way. Rule number 1 of any healthy diet is to drink plenty of water. Substituting alcohol, juices or soft drinks for water is the best decision you can make and will help you burn fat from your body, thus eliminating cellulite. Water does not contain added sugars or calories, and it removes the feeling of hunger, since many times we believe that we need to eat when in reality our body is thirsty.
  3. Eliminate toxins from your skin. Intake of water is the best way to detoxify your skin from the pollution that we suffer daily, thus helping us to see cleaner skin and to prevent acne. Although we use cleansing and moisturizing creams daily, drinking water will help us make their effects much more visible to our skin.
  4. Illuminate your look. Extreme dehydration can cause the eyes to sink, causing a sick look on our face. Drinking plenty of water a day will help us to make our gaze more intense. In addition, putting wet compresses with cold water on our eyes for a few minutes a day will help reduce inflammation around the eyes.
After all these benefits, you already know that if you want to maintain a healthy body, inside and out, water must be a key part of your diet. On the other hand, if you are one of those who have a hard time drinking water, try to eat foods that contain a lot of water: fruits such as watermelon or pear, juices, yogurt or white fish. Thus, in addition to forcing yourself to drink at least one or two glasses of water during meals, you can help your body with this type of food.
