You can use all of the best anti-aging serums that money can buy and slather your skin with them, but it’s all going to be for naught if you aren’t putting the right things inside of your body. We all know how important diet and nutrition are to staying healthy overall, but many people underestimate how much it impacts the health of your skin.
Besides just eating right, getting the proper amounts of fruits and vegetables and all that, many overlook how much water they really need to drink to make sure they are healthy. In today’s post, we’ll cover why you should always be making sure to drink plenty of water so your skin looks great.
Drink Your Water – And Plenty of It!
You’ve heard it a million times before, but it bears repeating – you need to be drinking enough water. I’m guilty as any of having my morning coffee every day, but after that, I try to stick with water throughout the rest of the day as to ensure that I get enough of it. Stay away from soft drinks and other caffeinated beverages, as those will just dehydrate you even more from the inside.
Beyond just drinking the proper amount of water (at least 8 glasses per day), you’ll also want to be making sure that you are drinking clean water. Perhaps investing in something like a home water filtration system is a good idea.
Not only will you get clean water coming out of your taps, saving you from having to buy bottled water or expensive Brita filters over and over, it will also make all of the plumbing in your house flow with clean water. That means when you’re in the bath or shower, you have purified water coming out to bathe in. Many don’t understand how harsh the water straight from the tap can be, both when ingested and when used for cleansing, and how much of a change you can see in your health and your skin when switching over to a more clean water source.
While water helps to improve the circulatory functions of the body, making sure that blood flows properly, everything gets the nourishment that it needs, organs are functioning at their best, it also emerges visibly in the health of the skin. Once I began counting my water intake throughout the day and made it a point to be drinking at least (if not more than) the minimum recommended amount, I can’t tell you how much healthier and shinier my skin became. It made a huge difference.
If you’re already drinking enough, good for you – this post is not for you. If you’re not getting the proper amount, it’s time to put down the soft drinks, beers, coffees (when used in excess) and discover how great you can feel when you are hydrated enough. I find myself craving water now and I love it! Change your habits to get your recommended daily amount and you’ll feel the difference right away.
