Water is an absolute necessity when it comes to the normal functioning of our body and our skin as well. We are made up of 70% water and if we don’t consume the sufficient amount, dehydration occurs.
One of the skin’s principal functions is to protect the body against its environment by maintaining an effective epidermal barrier, not only against external factors, but also to prevent water loss from the body. Hydration levels affect visible microscopic parameters; such as the suppleness and softness of your skin. Drinking water gives elasticity to the skin which helps to reduce the size of pores. Additionally, water helps prevent dry skin and eliminates toxins, both of which can be causes of acne. Water effectively helps slow down the aging process by reducing wrinkles. It also provides suppleness, making your skin plump.
The skin has a pH of about 5.5 which is slightly acidic. An imbalance of the pH levels can lead to an excess of sebum, aging the skin prematurely. Drinking water helps to maintain the pH of the skin at 5.5 to keep the skin healthy.
It is important to keep yourself hydrated daily to feel your absolute best and have your skin look its absolute best as well. It is recommended to drink 6-8 glasses of water a day to benefit from the natural, positive effects of water. From helping your skin maintain elasticity, to reducing wrinkles and fine lines, water can do amazing things for your skin and for your overall health.
