Moisturize From The Inside Out!

Drinking water is an easy, inexpensive way to keep you skin healthy and hydrated. Topical moisturizers are important but they do not provide enough hydration to keep your skin moist and supple. Skin is an organ and just like any other part of the body, your skin is made up of cells. The cells of the human body are mostly water.  A newborn baby’s cells may be as much as 75% water!  With age, the amount of water in the human body decreases but water is still the primary content in the cells of the human body.  Without water, our organs and that includes skin, will not function at their best.

When skin is not adequately hydrated it loses thickness, can become more sensitive and offers less body protection. Dry skin feels tight and your skin tone may look flaky and dull. The drier your skin, the less resilient and more prone to wrinkling it becomes.  Chronic dehydration can age your skin very quickly and can cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear deeper.  Proper hydration is an important part of keeping skin looking firm and supple. Drinking plenty of water helps to reduce the signs of aging and keeps skin soft and elastic.

Water also helps the body to utilize essential nutrients, eliminate toxins and maintain a healthy pH balance. Anything that makes you sweat a lot, such as exercise or being out in the sun, causes you to lose fluids. Dehydration can also occur when you have been sick.  All these may mean you need to increase the amount of water you are drinking.  Coffee and alcohol do not count as fluids since they act as diuretics and reduce hydration.   Water aids the natural repair process, helping the body to heal faster when damaged. In the case of severe sunburn, be sure to drink a lot of water!

So how much water is enough to keep our bodies and skin looking and feeling their best?  It may be more than you might think.  Women should drink at least nine cups of plain water every day and men should drink 13! This is important because no matter how much water you are drinking, the water will reach your other organs first before it reaches your skin.

To have beautiful, healthy skin, try moisturizing from the inside out!  We all know that beauty is more than skin deep.  It’s what’s on the inside that counts and in this case, that means a lot of water and a well hydrated body.  It’s easy, inexpensive and you can start today!  Let’s drink (a glass of water) to your health!

  1. I absolutely Love the Alpha Hydrox skincare line. Ive been a user of the alpha hydrox facial cleanser, daily moisture lotion, and the moisturizer cream for over 5 years now and my skin remains clear, supple, and vibrant! Acne was never an issue in my teens but now in my thirties I was experiencing more blemishes and unbalanced skin. Never would have I guessed having these issues now. From the first day or two using the wash and moisturizer my face looked great! These are all I use now and I believe my youthfulness is being kept using the Alpha Hydrox products! Thank You so much!
    Sincerely;
    Tracie Miller
