Can water make you look 10 YEARS younger? Know about the fact

“Did you know? There is the same amount of water on Earth as there was when the Earth was formed. The water from your faucet could contain molecules that dinosaurs drank.” - Fun fact from the United States Environmental Protection Agency

Water is an essential part of life. In fact, without it, survival would be impossible. But with our busy schedules and let’s face it, so many other better things to drink, we often forget or deliberately postpone drinking water on a daily basis. This can certainly be a negative action that can have a detrimental effect on your body, skin and overall health. Water is immensely important for survival, because it feeds our cells on a molecular level, supplying then with oxygen. In fact, our brain tissue is composed of 80% water! Even losing 1% of water from our body is enough to incur headaches and reduce productivity.

Just as water is essential for our wellbeing, it is just as necessary for our skin. Too little water consumption and you will experience a buildup of toxins in your system that can lead to bloating and inflammation. Now inflammation or puffiness (in this case) causes skin to stretch and in particular the eye area, you need to be careful with any type of stretching or harsh rubbing motion, because it will show up eventually. Crow’s feet do not develop overnight, but rather are a cumulative effect of sleepless nights, lack of water intake and others. When you do not drink enough water or consume too much salt, your eye area takes the toll. It shows up as under eye puffiness and dark circles. This puffiness leads to insufficient circulation in the area which shows up as dark circles. One day of puffiness may not be enough to have an effect on your skin, but if the condition becomes chronic, you may experience permanent dark circles and bags that can only be remedied with surgery.

Moral of the day? Drink up for ageless skin. Start caring for your skin’s health and overall immunity by drinking enough water. Use this handy guide to remind you about how much water to take as well as some great reasons to do so!
