Aesthetic treatments are a fantastic way to improve aspects of your appearance you want to change, but working to improve your skin from the inside out is just as important.
Health and wellbeing go hand-in-hand and these also impact on appearance, including in the appearance of our skin.
Working to improve your skin naturally will mean that any aesthetic treatments you do chose will look even better as they are complimented by an improved complexion.
And the simplest tool of all can help you to keep your skin looking youthful and clear – drinking water.
Well hydrated skin is the secret weapon in anti-ageing. Maintaining moisture levels in the skin by drinking enough water will help to protect against the ageing process and wrinkles.
Stay hydrated to maintain youthful skin
Drinking enough water every day is essential to protecting your overall general health – as well as keeping your skin hydrated.
The NHS states that to stay healthy everyone should drink between 6 and 8 glasses of water every day (around 1.2 litres).
By failing to drink enough water the body – and, of course, the skin – will become dehydrated.
This can result in:
✔ Dry and flaky patches of skin
✔ Lines on the face becoming more obvious
✔ Increased dark circles under the eyes
✔ Dull looking skin
Skin that is dehydrated will lack moisture and as a result lose elasticity making it more prone to wrinkles.
The benefits of drinking water for your skin extends beyond fighting wrinkles though as it can help to maintain a clear complexion. Diet and fluid intake can have an impact on complexion, with water in particular working to flush out toxins and keep skin clear.
If you suffer with acne, drinking enough water and following a healthy diet alongside acne treatment will help to maintain the condition of your skin by flushing out toxins.
Dehydrated skin can also be problematic for people suffering from conditions such as eczema, rosacea or psoriasis. The drier the skin is the tighter it will feel and it will be more prone to cracking. Keeping skin well hydrated will improve the moisture level, helping to control skin conditions.
Drinking water will help to:
✔ Keep skin clear by getting rid of toxins
✔ Encourage faster healing
✔ Keep wrinkles at bay by improving elasticity
✔ Minimise eczema and rosacea flair ups
