The Benefits of Water for Healthy Skin

We have all heard about the benefits of drinking water as part of a weight-loss or wellness plan but what most people don’t realize is that water is just as essential to your skin, hair, and body – especially during the warmer months. One of the benefits of drinking an adequate amount of water is it helps you stay hydrated. This not only benefits your internal organs, but it has a positive effect on the largest organ of them all, your skin.

Here’s how…

Dark Under-Eye Circles

Sometimes dark under-eye circles are truly from lack of a good night’s sleep or perhaps because of genetics. However, dark under-eye circles are sometimes caused by lack of hydration.

Taking in more water throughout may possibly reduce those puffy dark circles. If your body is in need of more water, then it will hold onto whatever it has for storage purposes. By drinking more, you can alleviate puffiness around the eye area.

Color, Tone, and Texture of Skin

Take a good, long, hard look at your skin on days when you do not have good color, tone, and texture. Keep a journal if you like, as this will help you to see first-hand the benefits of drinking additional water in the summertime.

When you spend time in the hot summer sun, you will notice that your skin will appear dryer, no matter what you do or how many cosmetics you place on your face. The best moisturizer is water.


Is it not better to treat your skin properly from the outset than to purchase many expensive acne treatments, which could only wind up drying your skin out over time? By drinking extra water in the summertime, you provide a natural cleanser to your skin and its pores. Water serves as a cleanser and an exfoliator and an acne preventer.

Dryness and Peeling:

If you are like anyone else, you have had the experience of staying out in the sun too long and being burned – especially on the facial areas. By drinking extra water, you provide a natural barrier for the skin so that it is hydrated and moist. Dryness and peeling will heal that much faster the more water you take in.

Since the body is made up of more than 70% water, it stands to reason that it needs water in order to survive and thrive, most especially in the summertime.

When your skin has a healthy glow, people naturally feel better about themselves. To read a few tips on how to achieve a better body image, read this informative article.

How much water do you drink each day?

If you’re not drinking at least eight full glasses a day, you’re not drinking enough, and that’s a problem. Staying properly hydrated is needed for your overall health. Water plays an important role in your digestion and circulation, and it’s also vital for your skin’s health and beauty.

Water helps you from the inside out

Water is one of the easiest and best beauty treatments you can do. You might not be able to get rid of all your favorite beauty lotions and potions just because you’re drinking more water, but it will really help.

Your skin is an organ

Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it’s made mostly of water. Lacking water, your skin can’t function at its best. If it doesn’t get enough water, it will become dry, tight, flaky, and prone to advanced aging.

Your body uses large quantities of water every day, so replace it by drinking more water, otherwise, your skin will suffer the consequences. It’s easy to see the improvement that hydration can do for your skin.
