The Beauty Benefits of Drinking More Water

Water is the ultimate beauty key to feeling and looking your best. It does a lot more than hydrate you. It also helps cleanse your body of toxins and gives you clear skin. Here are some ways that drinking water can help make you look better in no time!

Water for the skin

  • It’s an all-around detoxifier. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, so it needs to stay clear and hydrated. Your skin also naturally detoxifies itself but when you drink enough water, you’ll help keep toxins from building up in your cells.
  • Drinking more water helps your skin look healthy and youthful, as it’s the most important factor in fighting wrinkles.
  • It also reduces dark circles under eyes because of less puffiness from staying hydrated
  • It helps flush out fat. Drinking more water can help break down the fat stored on our bodies that contributes to cellulite and other unattractive bumps on the surface of the skin.
  • It helps combat bloat. Dehydration causes bloating which leads to a puffy face or larger stomach appearance – yikes! The solution? Drink at least two liters per day (or about eight cups) for best results.

Water for hair

  • Drinking more water helps your hair look shinier and less frizzy because it provides moisture to keep strands looking sleek and shiny without weighing them down or causing a greasy texture. The oil from the scalp down the strand dissolves when wet to create a smoother appearance on naturally wavy or tightly coiled strands. Fill up those curls with plenty of H20! 
  • Drinking plenty of fluids will keep the scalp healthy by flushing out toxins every day – who knew? Of course, sweating does too, but water can do wonders for all those strands on top of your head as well! 
  • Drinking more water leads to healthier looking locks – in about two weeks, dry ends will start appearing less brittle if they’re hydrated properly. Your stylist will notice an improvement as well. Make sure to tell them where you got the advice from😁

Tips on How To Drink More Water

Water is essential for every part of your body’s functions, including elimination through urination, perspiration and bowel movements.

Drinking more water will help you lose weight, look better (less bloating!), improve your skin health, reduce the risk of kidney stones, joint pain/arthritis and heart disease!

Drink about 16oz in the morning to stay hydrated throughout the day but keep an eye on how much coffee or tea you are drinking because these beverages contain caffeine which can lead to dehydration if consumed in excess. 

Add fresh fruit like lemon slices, lime wedges, cucumber pieces (or anything else that appeals!) as a way to flavour plain old H20 – be sure not to overdo it, so there is room for ice cubes when desired! You can also add herbs such as rosemary and mint!

Carry around a reusable stainless steel water bottle with you during the day to stay hydrated. Bottled drinks often contain an unhealthy amount of sugar or other bad additives for your health and weight loss goals. 

Drink more before, during, and after exercise to avoid cramps or muscle fatigue – it will also make sure that your muscles get properly replenished as well!

Make morning coffee using filtered water instead of regular tap water so that you can drink even more H20 throughout the day. 

Tips for Measuring Intake

Use the following equation to calculate how many ounces are in any amount of liquid (in US measurements): ounce/30ml=ounce by weight; if one cup is 236 ml, then it would be 12 oz.

One litre weighs about four pounds when full, so divide that number into twelve equal parts and use those as units daily to keep track. Finally, if you are using metric measurements, one litre equals about 34 ounces.

Key Takeaway

How much water do you drink in a day? If you are like most people, then the answer is not enough. Drinking more water can help with weight loss and also keep your skin and hair looking healthy.
