There are numerous times in life when you hear the phrase, “Water is life”. Well, it’s not just a phrase, water IS life. Without it, you won’t be able to stay alive, you won’t be able to live a healthy and balanced life, you won’t be able to uphold all the chemical reactions taking place in your body, and above all, you won’t have a beautiful glowing skin.
Water might not be the first thing to pop up in your head while thinking about skin care but trust me, water plays a key role as it forms the basis of a skincare routine.
Have you ever noticed, why your skin appears dry, flaky and dull when you are dehydrated? You might also observer fine lines and wrinkles getting more prominent.
“Eat your water” is a phrase I have used for most of my life. Staying hydrated isn’t just about drinking eight glasses of water a day. Hydration is important for achieving ultimate skin wellness. Deeply hydrated skin will appear smooth, vibrant, fresh and healthy, whereas dehydrated skin feels tight, uncomfortable and appears dull. Remember that your skin is an organ too. Whatever you drink and eat can affect it.
During summers and winters, we need to put in more efforts to keep our skin and body hydrated. Don’t cheat on this as it is a good starting point and essential for healthy and glowing skin.
Staying hydrated is a must-do for the appearance and health of your skin. Your skin is a complex organ which carries millions of processes a day to keep itself intact. The processes keep you free from bacteria and allergen, regulate temperature and help in the sensation of touch – making a cooperative barrier between you and the environment.
As a beautician it really didn’t occur to me that much about drinking water until I was pregnant for my two girls. Then I used to drink water like nothing else existed. Throughout my pregnancy I didn’t drinking anything else than water. And I could see a huge physical difference in my skin. Which encouraged me to just keep at it.
Water is life and is a key ingredient in keeping your skin and your insides healthy and hyrdrated !
