I know, you’ve heard it before, drink water! In addition to the many health benefits, do you ever wonder how drinking a lot of water per day helps the skin? I can tell you with 100% percent certainty that it seems to remove wrinkles from the inside, but I’ve never taken before and after pictures as “proof”. That’s why this article in the Daily Mail really piqued my interest because one woman did just that.
If there was ever a (free) beauty secret you should be using, it’s water. If you suffer from acne, water helps to remove toxins from the body. If you have dark circles or puffiness, water helps by removing the salt concentration in the body, resulting in less puffiness.
Without adequate water intake, skin appears duller, and wrinkles and pores more prominent. That may be because water plumps up the skin, causing wrinkles and pores to, more or less, get filled in. What’s more, a variety of structures in the skin that support collagen require water to work effectively.
If you find it hard to drink straight water, raw green juices are also great and have a lot of water (juice is up to 90% water).
From experience, I can tell you that drinking a lot of water gets easier the more you do it, and you do adjust to the many trips to the bathroom.
