How Important is Water for Your Skin?

You don’t need a nutrition expert to tell you that drinking water is important for your health. Of course, there is a wide debate about whether you should be drinking 8 glasses of water every day (about 2-3 liters) and whether this includes only clear water or fruits and vegetables and other, non-alcoholic, sugar-free beverages, but overall, yes, water is essential for your health.

There are several key benefits from drinking adequate amounts of water. The benefits include aiding in digestion, cleansing some of the toxins from your body, helping you lose weight, and benefits your muscles before, during and after working out.

What are the Benefits of Water for Your Skin?

One of the biggest questions in the health community is how important is water for your skin? Can drinking a gallon or so of water every day really make your skin look younger, glowing and give you a better complexion, or is this a myth?

Here is the truth. The skin is an organ, the biggest organ, internal or external, in your body. Like other organs, skin, is made up of cells and cells are made of water. This leads to the following conclusion – without water, the cells that make up the skin and the skin itself will not be able to function at their best.

This is why drinking water is important for your skin and for overall health.

Treating Your Skin from the Outside is Just as Important

But, there is a caveat. Your other organs and your muscles are using up water every day too and they need to replenish their reserves of H20. So, by the time they all get their share of the liquid, there’s not that much that reaches the skin.

Because of this, drinking water is second-hand to moisturizing your skin from the outside. Showering with warm water, for example, is highly beneficial for your skin, as it cleans it and removes any dirt, oils and dead skin. It is also beneficial to use a good moisturizer and cleanse your face two times a day with SkinMedica Facial Cleanser and warm water.
