Adapting yourself with water therapy can assist you to keep moisturize your skin without spending too much on cosmetics and makeup just to rejuvenate your skin. The secret for having glowing and healthy skin is basically through a glass of water and it can be the ultimate way to solve beauty problems such as acne breakout, dark spots and dull skin. The average skin problem is due to lack of water intake. In addition to that, 75% of our body is water and any depletion of the water level will definitely affect the organs and cell growth including the largest organ or the body, the skin. Water therapy is the way for the organs to keep functioning and support the development of the cell.

Your skin contains around 30 percent of the total water content of the body and it is very important to maintain this percentage in order to keep the elasticity and plump of the skin as well as preventing the loss of the water due to a range of factors. Your skin cannot prevent the water loss even if the water intake is low. Enough water intake not only prevents the loss of water from the body but also maintains the density and thickness of the skin which keeps the body to stay healthy.

2. Flush out toxins from the body

Our kidneys need water for them to process and remove toxins from the body. The kidneys filter the bloodstream from any waste, just to deliver pure and oxygenated blood to the organs. After all, the skin also receives the nutrients and oxygen through the oxygenated blood in which keep the health of the skin. Drinking water during an empty stomach also can clear the large intestine which makes it easier to absorb nutrients that give advantages to the skin.

3. Improves normal skin functions

The skin performs multiple functions such as preventing the loss of the water, remove toxins and incorporating vitamin D as well as protecting from any UV ray damage. In order for the skin to performs well in its daily functions, adequate water intake on a daily basis is vital.

Enough water inside the body also increases the metabolic rate and enhance the function of the digestive system to get rid of the toxins from the body. Dehydration may turns your skin tight, dry and flaky and such conditions will make the skin has less flexibility and more prone for the wrinkling to take place.

A cold or warm shower helps to calm the nerves and reduce any skin damage possibilities attributable to stress-related factors. Soak your body in the bathtub for 2 to 3 minutes to refresh the skin but don’t expose your body too long in the water as the water may strip off the body’s natural oil, which may dehydrate the skin. Choose either cold or warm shower only as hot water can eliminate the skin’s moisture.

Drink a glass of water every morning to keep you hydrated as well as energizing and refreshing you for the day. You can also eat water-rich foods for you to keep hydrated and moisturize the skin. Fruits such as watermelon, strawberries, pineapple and orange are among the highest with water content. The water absorbed from these fruits not only keep the water level of the body to the percentage where it should be but also benefit the skin from its vitamins.
