You have probably seen those television advertisements where a model is advocating a brand name moisturising cream, with the model stating that the cream is the reason why their skin is youthful. However, those products are not cheap, and how much can you really trust what the actress in that ad is saying?
If you want radiant, glowing skin – the secret is quite simple – drink more water. Water does wonders for our skin and the more we drink, the less likely you are going to waste money on skin care products that may or may not even work.
Skin Absorbs Water
Much like our body and brain, our skin needs water to stay healthy. Think of your skin like a sponge. When a sponge is dry it is contracted, shrivelled and wrinkles up. Put that sponge under water and it expands and becomes flexible. Skin is no different. A lack of water dries up our skin which causes flakiness, and over time, wrinkles will develop. So the more water you drink, you are expanding the moisture levels in your skin which will make it look better.
To continue on from the previous point, drinking plenty of water has an effect on your pores. If we take the sponge example, when we fail to drink enough water, our pores become dry and rigid like the holes in a sponge. When this happens, they lose their flexibility and as such can cause problems such as acne, blackheads and even bumps in the skin.
However, when you drink sufficient levels of water, your pores become more flexible and are able to stretch and release natural oils from within your skin.
When you drink water, you are not only replenishing the lost minerals you are giving your blood much needed oxygen to transport to the rest of your body. The more water you drink, the better the circulation in your skin. And when you are well hydrated, the ability your skin has to repair itself remains intact.
Keeps Your Skin Healthy
As you get older, your skin is more likely to dry out, causing flakiness and wrinkles. As your skin is around 65% water, staying hydrated is vital in looking after the health of your skin.
It is said that the more water you drink on a daily basis (over 2 litres), you are more likely to increase the thickness and density of your skin. If you are worried about your skin, a glass of water will do wonders for its health and overall appearance.
