Do you want to know an easy way to improve your skin? Just drink more water. Easier said than done, right? This is especially true if you aren’t the biggest fan of water in the world. There are some tips you can use to make drinking more water a pleasure. After all, most doctors recommend that you get a daily allowance of at least 48-64 ounces of water to keep your body running in tip-top shape. That can translate into the better looking skin you want in the long run. When skin is well hydrated and plumped up by the water you take in, your skin will have a certain glow your friends will be envious of.
Skin-wise if you don’t drink enough water, you run the risk of a dehydrated surface. This is going to make lines and wrinkles look more prominent, contribute to an uneven texture, and won’t allow your skin to heal in the right way. Not getting enough water can even make you look sallow or pale. We need ample water for our circulatory systems to be running smoothly. That includes giving you that nice glow to your skin when you consume the right amount of water each day.
This is definitely going to help your skin glow with health. Drinking enough water each day flushes out your system to get rid of more toxins and impurities in your skin. Your skin is the largest organ you have made up of skin cells that need nourishment daily to function at their best.
By getting enough water, it is going to help your pores to be less clogged and may even reduce acne problems.
You don’t only have to consume boring, plain old tap water. Jazz it up with a variety of different things. You can add lemon, orange, or lime slices to your plain water. Or invest in a sparkling water system to make your own fizzy drinks with water right at home, if you prefer a little bubbly with your water.
If you really can’t stand the taste of water, try it with a splash of juice. 100 % cranberry, pomegranate, or even mango juice can increase the taste sensation of plain water and add some vitamins, if you don’t overdo it. Just a splash will do.
Another way spas tend to enhance their water is with cucumber slices, so if you like the taste of those that might be the way to infuse your water, making it something you look forward to drinking on a daily basis. If cucumbers aren’t appealing, try apples, berries, or even grapes.
Make it a game to see how much water you take-in each day. Write it down in a water journal to keep track and reward yourself at the end of the week, if you make your daily goals. This little reward can be something as simple as a fancy coffee drink, lipstick, or even a new skincare product from ASDM Beverly Hills (hint, hint).
Always take water with you. Invest in some BPA-free containers that are gorgeous and made of reusable glass. There are quite a few companies that make these drinking vessels that look trendy and unique. Finding one that you enjoy drinking out of can make those sips of water happen more frequently.
