Truly one of the best kept beauty secrets there is to promote and maintain healthy skin and hair is good old H20. Yep water.
We all know that water is essential to life and that water makes up to 70% of our body mass but it is also essential to maintain healthy skin. And since the skin is the body’s largest organ, you need to take care of it from the inside out.
- Water is essential for detoxifying our skin and bodies. In fact, it might be the single best detoxifier there is.
- Water is essential to deliver essential nutrients from the foods we eat to our vital organs, including our skin.
- Drinking the appropriate amount of water plumps our skin (because it is hydrated!) helping to give it a soft a supple appearance.
- Drinking the appropriate amount of water also aids in treating skin conditions such as acne, rosacea psoriasis and eczema
So how much water should be drink. Well, there are of thoughts on this like the standard 8 -8oz glasses per day but it really does depend on your activity level, the time of year, your body mass, and more.
And if you really want to kick your detoxifying skin and other organ benefits into high gear add 1-2 organic lemons per day to your water. And if you can, don’t drink water from plastic bottles. Let’s be kind to our earth.
