Hydrate for Gorgeous Skin

March 19, 2012 · 3 comments

Wow, this weather has been unbelievable hasn't it?  As the temperature begins to rise, it's important to keep hydrating!

In the winter, it is drier, and our bodies crave water, prompting us to work on our hydration by drinking enough water and fluids.  However, as temperature and humidity rises, it can be more difficult to remember to quench your body's cells.

There are three ways you can help make sure your skin looks the very best:

  1. Exfoliate
  2. Hydrate
  3. Protect

I will discuss how to best exfoliate at a later time.  Today, I want to talk about hydrating your body and your skin.

Drinking water is very important.  When we hydrate from the inside, water is absorbed into all our cells, not just our skin cells.  An adequate amount of water is important for overall good health because water is involved in and helps improve bodily functions like digestion, absorption, circulation, and excretion.

Hydration with water aids in the flushing or removal of harmful toxins from the body. Without sufficient water, metabolic wastes are not removed efficiently. The body would hold in toxins rather than expelling them as required for proper health. This toxin removal is performed in the kidneys and drinking water allows the kidneys to perform this task properly.

Drinking water is beneficial for muscles, helping maintain proper muscle tone and preventing painful muscle cramping.  Your facial muscle tone helps with sagging and wrinkling, also.

The prevention of kidney stones or at least the reduction of risk of developing kidney stones is another benefit of drinking water in the right quantities.

Drinking water also helps to increase our energy levels lubricate our joints.

Hydrating from the inside is going to help your body and your skin.  It will help you maintain a good moisture balance, eliminate wastes properly, and help with toxicity.  So, take care of yourself and drink away!
