Why water is the best thing for your skin

How many times has somebody told you to drink more water? If you’re like us, many, many times, but have you ever wondered why you need to drink more water? Well, let’s follow this train of thought with a fun fact…

Did you know that your skin your body’s largest organ?

Yep, that’s right. You might have never noticed before, but your skin is your body’s biggest organ and it’s actually made up of around 64 per cent water, making hydration vital for happy and healthy skin.

By consuming plenty of water to keep your body’s hydration levels up, you’re doing our skin a huge favour by helping clear it of toxins, maintain the pH balance of your skin, and keeping the skin plump, healthy and glowing.

However some of us might find drinking water a little, well, boring. If you’re the kind of person that would jump at the chance to scull a glass of soft drink or orange juice over H2O, then listen up. Here’s three ways to make drinking water a little more exciting.

TIPS FOR DRINKING ENOUGH WATER

Top it up with your favourite fruit

Fill a glass or a pitcher will water and throw in some fruit for an added flavour hit. Try chopping up some mint, watermelon, orange slices or cucumber, and even try a different flavour each day.

Add a squeeze of lemon

A glass of water with a squeeze of lemon juice does much more than add refreshing flavour. Lemon also helps support your immune system, aid digestion, and repair your skin with its antioxidant properties. After you’ve squeezed it in your glass, throw in the slice for added flavour.

Keep it close

If you work in an office, make sure you’ve got a constant supply of water close by so you can easily keep swigging all day. In the mornings, fill up a large jug of water and keep it within arms reach and eyesight on your desk so you can easily top up your glass.

But you don’t need to guzzle water all day every day to make sure you’re keeping your hydration levels up. There are plenty of delicious and healthy foods out there that are packed full of water, making them the perfect addition to your diet for keeping your body quenched.

HYDRATION BOOSTING FOODS

Cucumbers

Made up of 95 per cent water, just one cup of cucumber slices is nearly as thirst quenching as drinking one glass of water.

Yoghurt

It might surprise you, but regular, plain yoghurt contains a whopping 85 to 88 per cent water. Also rich in calcium and B vitamins, treat yourself to a tube of the sweet stuff every day.

Iceberg lettuce

With the highest water content of all lettuces, iceberg lettuce is made up over 95 per cent water, so make this your green leaf of choice for sandwiches and salads.

Watermelon

Just like its name suggests, watermelon is full of water, and is also one of the richest sources of the cancer-fighting antioxidant, lycopene. Add slices to salads and smoothies for your H2O hit.

If you neglect your water intake, your body can become dehydrated, leading to complications such as tiredness, headache, dizziness and dry skin. Also, other bad habits such as smoking, drinking alcohol, harsh skin care products, hot showers, as well as environmental factors such as exposure to wind and sun and air conditioning can cause your skin and body to lose much-needed hydration.

But it’s not only drinking water that can help keep our skin hydrated – forgetting to moisturise can also lead to parched, flaky and dull looking skin.

To help combat dehydration from the outside, Neutrogena’s new HYDRO BOOST range of moisturising products is perfect for giving skin a radiant and hydrated glow. Formulated with highly purified hyaluronic acid, the new range ensures optimal hydration around the clock by continually retaining and releasing moisture into the skin for 24 hours for a plump, smooth and younger-looking appearance.

The range includes the HYDRO BOOST Water Gel which doubles the skins moisture in just one hour, while absorbing moisture from the air and releasing it into the skin over time for soft, silky skin.

For long-lasting hydration with the added benefit of sun protection, the HYDRO BOOST Gel SPF15 is a lightweight, non-greasy formula that contains hyaluronic acid and olive extract to give dry skin more moisture for up to 24 hours.

The Progressive Release Technology in the HYDRO BOOST Eye Roll-On helps the delicate skin around the eye area create up to a 400 per cent improvement in skin moisture after just one hour.

Then give your skin an injection of hydration over night with the HYDRO BOOST Night Concentrate, which combines hyaluronic acid, olive extract, an Ionic Mineral Complex, and vitamin E-enriched beads to deeply replenish for a soft and supple complexion come morning.

  2. I’m so happy to testify of the good work of Dr. Ozala, I have suffered from Herpes virus since 2020
    and I have had frequent symptoms in my private area, after some time it will go away after using acyclovir drugs, then come back after some months. It was disheartening since I was diagnosed, but after finding Dr. Ozala and his reviews i was convinced that he will definitely cure me and so i contacted and he told me how to get his medicine and using it for just 14 days and i will go and check up and first i said how can that be possible but i used his herbal medicine after making purchase and truly i used it and went for the test again, and my result came back negative. So I made it a task to share this good testimony on the internet so that those sick can benefit and get cured.

  3. When my herpes started interfering with my daily life. And my lips always bother me every damn day. I remember going to the hospital when I was around 25 years old cuz my whole lips were burning like hell. And a nurse came to the waiting lobby and said sorry there are no doctors here. So I had to go back home. My lips were burning like hell and I felt so uncomfortable that night so I turned to the internet where I found Herbal Doctor Oduku Paul . I am 40 years old.This virus has been totally eliminated with their herbal system , My lips were messed up. They are okay when I apply chap-stick, but if I don’t apply chap stick they will get tight and dry and ashy and the skin will get burnt and hard. And they always feel tingly. The burning sensation stopped after that day I started their herbal cure. I don’t want to walk around with glossy lips. I’m a man. I don’t know what would have heal me from this virus if not for the product. I took a comprehensive STD blood test last week again and everything came out negative.,contact odukuherbalremedies@gmail.com https://www.facebook.com/Herpes-Eraser-102292594719987/ today Call Us or whatsapp +2349064430408 they have the right treatment to STD
