Does Water Make Your Skin Glow?
Drink 6-8 glasses of water a day. We’ve all heard that. It’s good for your health in so many ways. But is it good for your skin too?
Few if any studies have actually been done that prove the difference that water makes in the appearance of skin. However, one 2007 study, published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, found that drinking 9.5 cups of water every day for four weeks altered skin density and thickness.
Doctors and patients both report the diminishing appearance of wrinkles and improvement of aging skin when water plays a role. According to the staff at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center in Denver, although water doesn’t eliminate wrinkles, it can substantially help with their appearance, depending on severity.
Since skin is 64 percent water, it makes sense that drinking lots of water will provide benefits. And it can’t hurt. So keep guzzling that water, but not all at once. Spread it out throughout the day. And let it work its magic on your skin.
