Drinking water is essential for clear skin and your overall health.
Water is essential for carrying waste material out of your body... and is quite possibly the single most important contributor to healing and preventing acne flare-ups.
How much water should you be drinking every day?
Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day for beautiful skin.
Your body is made up of 70 percent water. Water is literally your body's life force. It is involved in nearly every bodily process, including digestion, absorption, circulation and excretion.Water is also the primary transporter of nutrients throughout your body.
If not enough water is consumed, toxins can build up causing breakouts. Water flushes these toxins out.Without adequate water, we would poison ourselves with our own metabolic wastes. Your kidneys remove waste products that must be dissolved by water. So, by drinking enough water, you are flushing out the toxins that would normally escape through the pores of your skin... thus preventing breakouts.
Your kidneys cannot function properly without enough water. When they do not work to capacity, some of the load is dumped onto your liver. A liver that is not performing at its best can worsen acne because it cannot break down and clear excess hormones from your body.
Water is also important in losing weight. Water suppresses the appetite and helps your body metabolize stored fat. Studies have shown that an increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits.
So, drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.Your body will not function properly without enough water and cannot rid itself of wastes and toxins. Drinking water is essential for clear, healthy skin.
Most consider a glass of water to equal 8 oz which means a 16oz bottle of water is 2 glasses :)
