The Benefits of Drinking Water For Your Skin Health

Posted by Dr Theva in Skin, Skin care.

Here at Dr Theva we are big believers in the benefits of drinking water for your skin. Water is extremely beneficial in hydrating the skin, flushing out harmful toxins and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that come with ageing.

Not convinced? Read on below for the top benefits of drinking water for your skin! 

It keeps your skin hydrated:

Comprised of microscopic cells requiring water to thrive, skin – our largest organ – cannot function at its best without being sufficiently hydrated.  Without water, skin becomes dry, tight, flaky and lacks the resilience required to fight premature ageing.

It creates a flawless and healthy glow!

Like the quality in which a seed will flourish into a plant, regular water consumption transforms the way the cells of your skin are coloured and textured. Water allows skin cells to structure themselves into a smooth, flawless surface making your skin emanate a healthy glow rather than appearing dull and lusterless.

It flushes out toxins:

Water not only hydrates your skin, keeping it plump, supple and youthful, regular intake allows your organs to let go of the water they’re storing which can flush out harmful toxins contained within them.

So, how do you hydrate your skin efficiently to achieve these great benefits?

  • Use a moisture rich topical cream.
  • Eat a diet rich in fruit and vegetables to naturally hydrate your skin from the inside out.
  • Drink water regularly throughout the day to replenish moisture loss and dehydration. You should aim to drink at least 6 – 8 glasses of water each day and more if you are exercising! Our tip? Start the day with a big glass of hot water and lemon to hydrate your body and skin after sleep and to flush out any unwanted toxins.
