Water is truly your Glow Up SkinCare buddy! Staying hydrated is one of the BEST beauty treatments.
Check out all the ways drinking water helps you create that healthy glow:
- Enhances skin tone – When you drink enough water, it helps your body get rid of toxins and increases blood flow to your skin, giving it a smoother, healthier glow.
- Wards off sagging skin and premature aging – Staying hydrated helps maintain and revive your skin’s elasticity, preventing sagging and the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
- Helps prevent puffiness – That puffy look is often your body retaining water to prevent dehydration when you don’t drink enough. That's why improving your hydration can reduce it.
How much do you need daily?
While water needs are going to vary by factors like how much you sweat on a given day, experts say an optimal amount is about 9 cups of fluids for women and 13 cups for men.
