Thanks to technological advances, experts in dermatology have observed the effect that our diet has on our skin’s texture and appearance.
Many recent studies in dermatology confirm that the most significant factor in skincare depends not only on the cosmetics that we apply (which, of course, do make a difference) but also primarily on our diet.
So…which diet should we implement to look fabulous?
Our body is 70 percent water; therefore, it’s logical that any lack of sufficient water intake will affect our appearance.
That’s why drinking water is undoubtedly the easiest and most efficient way of preventing the signs of aging, maintaining the skin smooth and the body healthy.
HOW DOES WATER AFFECT OUR SKIN?
Water eliminates the toxins in our body that are daily stored up through contact with pollutants, tobacco smoke, stress, and other sources of free radical formation. Concretely, free radicals are the principal cause of skin diseases and premature aging.
Water gives skin a more youthful appearance and eliminates all these elements, which cause the appearance of acne. Acne is formed by the accumulation of bacteria, oil, dead skin, and dirt on the skin. Even for those with oily skin and problems with acne, water is needed to wash away both internal and external impurities.
Additionally, water helps vitamins and nutrients to flow throughout the body easily. It collaborates with all the body’s organs to distribute vitamins E, C, and B12, which help maintain the skin smooth and young.
HOW MUCH WATER DO I NEED TO DRINK DAILY?
Typically, it’s recommended that a person drink at least a liter and a half of water, although many dermatologists recommend increasing the dose to two or three daily liters.
WHEN IS IT ESSENTIAL TO DRINK WATER?
It’s essential to drink and recuperate lost fluid after exercising or sunbathing. Don’t forget that water is good not only for your organism but also for your outward appearance.
WATER INSIDE AND WATER OUTSIDE
When cleansing facial skin or the body, the water should be lukewarm. Hot water can dry out the skin excessively, but its cleansing power is enormous at an adequate temperature.
Drink water first thing in the morning; it will help eliminate a puffy or swollen face.
Who would have thought that water would end up being one of the most relevant beauty secrets in the new millennium?
