Water: The Key to Natural Beauty

Updated: Aug 15

What's the Easiet Diet Change to Enhance Your Natural Beauty?

I'm going to share with you one of the most important changes you can make in your diet to enhance your natural beauty: water. Yes, water can have a huge effect on your skin's texture and appearance. Such a simple and readily available staple of life, and yet so many of us are dehyrated because we do not include adequate water intake in our diets! Considering that our body is 70% water, it makes absolute sense that when we're not properly hydrating, our skin and body is going to reflect that quickly. The sad thing is, we get used to being dehydrated and overlook the damage reflected in the mirror.

Proper hydration is undoubtedly the easiest and most efficient ways of preventing the signs of aging, maintaining skin smooth, and keeping the body healthy.

How does Water Effect the Skin and Body?

Water eliminates the toxins in our body that are stored up daily through contact

with the air around us, pollutants, stress, the products we use, and other sources of free radicals. These irritants are responsible for breaking down our skin's collagen, resulting in unflattering skin blemishes like wrinkles, dark spots, fine lines and loose, saggy skin.

Water helps vitamins and nutrients to easily flow throughout the body. In particular, it collaborates with all of the body’s organs to distribute vitamins E, C and B12, which help maintain smooth and youthful-looking skin.

What do I need?

Normally it’s recommended that a person drink between 64 oz and 96 oz of water daily. It's also important to drink and recuperate lost fluids after exercise and sunbathing -- drink more water!

A Skincare Tip

When cleansing the face, it’s best to use lukewarm water. Very hot water can dry out the skin excessively, but at an adequate temperature, its cleansing power is enormous. Always finish your morning and evening skincare routine by using cleaner and safer hydrating and moisturizing creams that lock in hydration without the use of preservatives and additives.

A Beauty Trick

Drink water first thing in the morning; it will help eliminate a puffy or swollen face and help your body release toxins accumulated overnight. After you've had your coffee, drink another eight ounce glass of water right before you begin your morning cleansing routine.

Who would have thought that water would end up being a beauty secret that enhances our natural beauty in so many ways?
