Ok, I know we are all constantly hearing about the importance of staying well hydrated (as we should in this ridiculous summer heat), but did you know that your water intake makes a big difference in the health and appearance of your skin? Without adequate water, skin appears dull and wrinkles and pores become more prominent. Dehydrated skin is often dry and uncomfortably tight and itchy, but it can also produce a greasy shine that is just as equally annoying and gross. This is a result of your skin creating more oil and sebum than it normally would in order to over compensate for the dryness.
Skin is composed of 64% water, so it only makes sense that proper hydration is necessary for its well-being. Adequate water intake flushes out toxins while keeping the skin hydrated, smooth, and youthful. Just think of it as part of your skin care regimen and drink up!
