There are many good reasons to drink water: It’s refreshing, it helps your brain function, maintains energy levels, detoxifies, regulates body temperature, aids in digestion, prevents dehydration, helps you lose weight by reducing your appetite, increasing your metabolism, washes down fat breakdown by-products and ultimately keeps your body healthy. One of the biggest advantages to getting enough water each day is avoiding dehydration, a serious condition that occurs when your body doesn’t have enough water to support vital functions. The human body is made up of between 55 and 75 percent water depending on size and composition, according to ShapeFit.
Our skin doesn’t perk up immediately when we consume water, in fact, when you ingest it doesn’t go straight to the skin -It goes through the intestines, gets absorbed into your bloodstream, and is filtered by kidneys. Then it hydrates cells. The benefit of drinking water in large amounts for proper skin health is a controversial area. Many people believe that water is very beneficial for proper skin care. The main stated benefit is that drinking a large quantity of water keeps the skin hydrated and prevents dry skin. Claims are also made that drinking water gives the skin a radiant, healthy, younger looking complexion with no wrinkles, and allows skin to maintain its elasticity and suppleness.
Minimizing your exposure to depleting elements―low humidity, harsh winds, dry heat, high altitude, sun, alcohol, long baths―and avoiding stripping soaps can prevent the loss of natural oils. Diet can play a role in strengthening your skin’s ability to maintain moisture too. Foods rich in the essential fatty acids found in walnuts, flaxseed, salmon, and olive oil can help skin cells stay hydrated.
A study by the Institute of Experimental Dermatology, in Germany, also revealed that women who took flaxseed- or borage-oil supplements (2.2 grams a day) for 12 weeks experienced a significant increase in skin moisture and a reduction in roughness. A healthy diet with three to five servings a week of fatty acids will suffice for the average person. But if you suffer from very dry skin or eczema, consider flaxseed-, evening-primrose–, or borage-oil supplements. All are good sources of alpha or gamma linolenic fatty acids.
Keep in mind that the skin is the largest organ and it is vital to keep all our organs hydrated. Combating skin dryness means eating healthy, drinking enough water, supplementing when needed and daily attention to your skin. (cleansing, moisturizing and protecting).
