This time of the year everything is dry, the grass, the garden beds, the rivers, you name it. The worst part during summer for most of us is dry skin. Your face is dry and flaky, parts of your body are itchy and you just wish you can do something about it. Celebrities have only piece of advice for this – drink more water. They say drinking water aids in giving you healthy glowing skin. How and why?
Your skin is made up of millions of cells. And skin cells are made of water. Without adequate water, your skin cells cannot function at their best. When your skin doesn’t receive the right amount of water, it becomes dry, tight and flaky. What’s even worse is that dry skin is less resilient, which makes it prone to wrinkling and infections.
Drinking water is healthy!
Apart from hydrating your skin, drinking lots of water can help in fending off breakouts by decreasing the concentration of oil in your skin. If your skin is covered with too much oil and less water, it can lead to clogged pores with acne breakouts and acne. Not something that anyone wants. Drinking enough water will make your skin look healthier and decrease the signs of ageing. Always aim for 8-10 glass of water every day to keep your skin healthy and younger looking.
Did you know that drinking water also plays an important role in your overall health? Water helps in digestion, circulation, absorption and even excretion. Get your glass of water now and start drinking! Don’t be tricked, tea and coffee doesn’t count as part of your water intake, yes they have water in them but they can act as a diuretic which pulls water from your system. For good health, limit the amount of tea and coffee you drink and drink extra water to compensate.
