Since our bodies are made up of about 60% water, water is essential for healthy skin, hair, and nails, as well as, controlling body temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure.
Drinking an adequate amount of water daily is important for overall good health because water aids in digestion, circulation, absorption, and even excretion. But what about drinking large amounts of water for proper skin health? Claims have been made that drinking water gives you a radiant, healthy, younger- looking complexion.
The fact is that skin is a very important part of the body. Your skin is made up of cells. And skin cells, like any other cell in the body, are made up of water. Without water, the organs will certainly not function properly or at their best. If your skin is not getting a sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration could cause your skin to become dry, tight, and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling. As water is lost in large quantities every day, you need to replace it somehow. The unfortunate truth is that water will reach all other organs before it reaches the skin, so be sure to drink plenty of it.
Since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, your energy levels are also boosted!
