Drinking Water For Skin: Before And After

Some say yes and others say no. In this post, we will explore the claims that water can give your skin a healthy glow and take a look at some studies done to test the theory. We will also outline the benefits that keeping hydrated has on your body and in particular your skin.

Glowing Skin - Does It Matter?

 

We've often heard the phrase "glowing skin", but what is actually meant by that and why is it so attractive? According to Healthguidance.org, someone who 'glows" looks healthy, vibrant, and well, while someone who isn't glowing may appear unhealthy, sullen, or even grey. Our society is programmed to unconsciously view healthier individuals as more attractive. The simple fact of the matter is that a glowing complexion is more attractive to the opposite sex, and whether right or wrong, attractive people often find themselves more successful.

 

Does Drinking Water Improve Your Skin?

 

There are many conflicting opinions about whether or not drinking enough water affects the quality and look of your skin. There are very few studies available that can really prove or disprove the benefits of drinking water for skin health. This could be because pharmaceutical companies are usually the ones who fund this type of study and therefore marketing water, which is pretty much free, for skin care, would not generate any revenue for them.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Clinical Studies on The Effects Of Drinking Water On Skin

 

One of the few studies done to study the long-term effects of water intake on skin health published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science in 2007 found that "drinking more than 2 L of water per day can have a significant impact on skin physiology."  In the study, they found that after four weeks, the participants' skin density and thickness were altered.

 

A second study done by the University of Missouri-Columbia found that drinking 500 ml of water increases the blood flow to your skin. According to the study, underhydration lowers subcutaneous tissue oxygen, impairs healing, and increases wound infection.


Drinking Water For Skin: Before And After - The Positive Effects

 

There are many health benefits to drinking adequate amounts of water every day. Many people find that there are also very real benefits for their skin as well. Here are a few.

 

Plumps Up The Skin:

 

According to womenshealthmag.com, water "plumps up the skin, causing wrinkles and pores to, more or less, get filled in." It is important however to constantly be replenishing your body with water because the extra hydration doesn't actually remove the wrinkles; it simply makes them less noticeable. If you stop drinking water, your wrinkles will once again become prominent.

 

 


Makes Skin Less Prone To Irritations and Blemishes

 

Julius Few, M.D., and director of the Few Institute and clinical professor of plastic surgery at the University of Chicago says that if your skin is properly hydrated, plump and elastic, it is less likely to become cracked. Cracked skin can allow external particles to enter its layers and cause blemishes and irritations.

 

Drinking Sufficient Water Rids The Body And Skin of Toxins

 

According to the University of Wisconsin Health, drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day helps "rid the body and skin of toxins." Many people claim that since they increased their daily water intake that their acne has improved and others have found that their skin seems more radiant and glowing.

 

How Drinking 3 litres of Water Per Day Helped Sarah's Skin

Sarah, aged 42, is a firm believer in how drinking lots of water can improve your skin, because she tried it for herself. She actually began her increase in water intake to help relieve her chronic headaches and poor digestion. The water did help resolve those issues, but she also experienced a bonus and much-welcomed side effect. The extra water made her look younger.  In her article from the dailymail.co.uk Sarah writes, "I genuinely can't believe the difference in my face. I look like a different woman. The dark shadows around my eyes have all but disappeared and the blotches have gone. My skin is almost as dewy as it was when I was a child. The transformation is nothing short of remarkable." Read more from Sarah's article here.
