Generally speaking when your body is properly hydrated, you look and feel your best the same applies to skin care. Water is of major importance to all living things; in some organisms, up to 90% of their body weight comes from water. Up to 60% of the human adult body is water, which is a good thing because water serves a number of essential functions to keep us all going: such as regulation of body temperature through sweating and respiration, lubrication of joints, flushing of waste mainly through urination, formation of saliva, and transportation of metabolized carbohydrates and proteins that our cell use as food.
So how does all this concern skin care, well because water is so essential when you get dehydrated, your body is going to pull water from your tissues, from your skin to maintain the concentration in your blood. The skin is an organ and like other parts of the body suffers when lacking. The lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky. In addition dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling. With adequate hydration, you avoid this cycle and have healthier and younger looking skin.
The key is drinking the adequate quantity of water because once you are adequately hydrated, the kidneys take over and excrete excess fluids and that is just going to send you to the bathroom more often. While the recommended amount varies depending on many factors including your physical activity, current health condition, and even the weather (sweat is a thing).
So remember to stay hydrated you’ll skin will thank you for it
