Skin Sin: Not Drinking Enough Water

Healthy and flawless skin is a goal we all have — and it can be a challenge with finding that perfect routine. There are so many different products and remedies out there today guaranteeing dewy visages, yet sometimes their promises seem to come up short. Hydration — inside and out — is key to keeping your skin radiant and it should be considered as an essential foundation for skin care. Keeping it real: without a strong foundation, those natural remedies to expensive potions won’t have much of an effect! 

Since our bodies are made of 50 to 70% of water, drinking enough of it is pretty important. But if just knowing this isn’t enough of a reason to motivate you, read further to what happens to your skin when you’re not hydrated enough.

  1. DRY SKIN

Water delivers essential nutrients to the skin cells which means not drinking enough will cause your skin to be not moisturized properly internally.

2. BREAKOUTS

When we don’t drink enough water, the toxins in our bodies finds other ways to get out, like through our skin (in the form of zits and pimples). Wouldn’t you rather pee out the toxins?

3. GRAY COMPLEXION

When your body lacks hydration, your face may start to turn a grayish shade because your body tries to find fluid elsewhere which causes it to shut off blood vessels to the face.

4. CHAPPED LIPS

The skin on our lips is thinner than the rest of our body which is our body signaling us that the body needs water.

5. WRINKLES

Water helps plump our skin internally and since our internal skin cells aren’t receiving adequate nutrients, wrinkles may be more visible.

6. DARK CIRCLES

The area under our eyes are very fragile and extremely susceptible to dehydration which shows externally.

In essence, we’re not saying drinking water is the holy grail to flawless skin. We’re just emphasizing its importance and how it is crucial to have a foundation before figuring out our perfect skin routine!
