Beber Água Deixa A Pele Mais Bonita

Drinking Water Makes Your Skin More Beautiful

Many people underestimate the power of water and the positive effects it can have not only on our skin...

But throughout our body and vital systems.

By the way, did you know that the skin is our largest organ?

It protects the body, forming a barrier of lipids and water, preventing the loss of fluids and thus serving as a natural thermoregulator.

Drinking more water is the most natural way to get that radiant, glowing, healthy skin we all want.

With that in mind, let's look at the 7 ways in which drinking water can help improve your skin.

1. Improves Tissue Rigidity

Have you ever noticed that many people who experience rapid and extreme weight loss have sagging skin? This occurs because the fat and water that left were responsible for supporting the skin. Drinking large amounts of water every day helps to slowly tighten your skin and maintain a healthy glow. Below we will tell you the ideal levels of water to be consumed daily,

2. Balance the Skin’s pH

One of the reasons you need to drink more water is to ensure that your body's pH is balanced, providing tissue health and a vibrant, bright appearance.

3. Release of Toxins

When we drink water, we flush toxins from our body, especially harmful toxins that can affect our overall health. There are those who go on juice diets to eliminate toxins, but the simple fact of drinking water helps eliminate toxins in the same way.

Water, found in our blood and also in the lymphatic system, is responsible for transporting all the nutrients, hormones and various substances important for our survival. Furthermore, it transports substances that are harmful to us, toxins, to be filtered and eliminated through urine, perspiration and feces. When we drink larger amounts of water, we stimulate this circulation and contribute to the elimination of bad substances.

4. Prevents the Signs of Aging

We already know that water keeps our body hydrated and refreshed, helping to maintain skin elasticity. People who drink large amounts of water are less likely to suffer from scars, wrinkles and fine lines and do not show as many signs of aging as those who drink little water. As you age, it's harder for your body to retain water; therefore, by getting more water into your system, you are helping your body and skin stay hydrated.

5. Treats and Prevents Pimples and Acne

Certain types of toxins clog the small pores of the epidermis and can cause problems such as acne and pimples. By drinking more water, you ensure that you will not suffer from severe acne and pimples. The more hydrated the skin is, the less clogged pores will be.

6. Promotes Tissue Hydration

You shouldn't just think about hydration through drinking water! Hydration is also very important when cleaning the skin. It may not seem ideal to shower every day, as soap eliminates the fat barrier that protects our skin. On the other hand, it is great for your skin to cleanse with water, especially warm or cold – never hot – to unclog pores and keep it moist and healthy.

7. Increases Skin Elasticity

If you have a lack of elasticity in your skin, you may be dehydrated. To check your skin's elasticity, gently pinch your skin and see if it bounces back. If it doesn't return to normal within a few seconds, you certainly need to drink more water to hydrate yourself and increase your cells. Areas like the skin under your eyes can turn dark if you lose elasticity and aren't moisturized.

How much water should you drink a day?

The amount of water you should drink per day depends on your metabolism, weight, height, gender and your daily routine such as going to the sauna and sweating during physical exercise. Generally, adults should drink 35ml per body weight every day, and even more if necessary. Always make sure to drink at least six glasses of water daily to stay hydrated and healthy.

From helping maintain skin elasticity to reducing wrinkles and fine lines, water can do amazing things for your skin and overall health.

Set your water intake to the standards above as a personal goal! You certainly won't regret it.

A good tip is to drink between 300ml-500ml of water as soon as you wake up. Leave the bottle next to the bed. This will help you “hit” your daily water intake goal and will also give your digestive and circulatory system a boost, preparing your body for another day.
