You no longer have to pay for expensive surgeries and questionable products to get glowing, healthy skin. Believe it or not, simply drinking enough water can help your skin to maintain its healthy glow.
Say goodbye to the expensive creams that claim that they will magically make you look ten years younger. Cancel that face-lift or painful restorative surgery-grab a water bottle and starting drinking what nature is providing you.
The effect of water is immediate, and can make a difference in your appearance even overnight. You will notice a glow in your surfaces from the moisture, and you may even find that you feel better as well.
While it may seem impossible, your wrinkles may seem less pronounced, and your body may be able to work more effectively as the waste and toxins are washed away. Water is a gift from nature, and remains one of the most amazing untapped resources for health and beauty.
Even if your goal is losing weight, water can make a very positive difference when it comes to helping you achieve your goal. Drinking an extra glass of water or two will allow you to feel more full-sometimes we confuse being hungry with actually being thirsty.
Dehydration can trigger these feelings of hunger, causing us to overeat-all you may really need is a glass of water! Natural spring water is full of natural minerals that can positively affect our health-it contains traces of calcium, potassium, magnesium, iodine, copper, and even iron.
All of these traces naturally lend to healthier and happier surfaces, giving you the healthy glow that you have always wanted. If you choose a water that has some fizz to it, it may actually be able to be absorbed more quickly into your body, giving you the benefits even faster.
In addition to consuming enough water, you may want to cut certain liquids out of your diet completely, to save yourself from their harmful effects. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and even some aerated drinks may increase the look of grease and dark spots on the surface of your face.
This is because these drinks contain caffeine, which prevents your body from making efficient use of minerals and vitamins. It also can naturally dehydrate you, making you look less than your best.
Try to limit your coffee and tea intake to no more than three cups a day. Cut it out completely if you can-the effects will be even better.
Alcohol and Smoking can also affect the surfaces of your body in very harmful ways. It is best to cut these substances out completely-for your skin alone, if not for the quality of your health.
Drinking too much alcohol can lead your veins to split, which can create negative effects in your appearance. The nicotine in cigarettes attacks the blood vessels that feed the skin with oxygen and nutrients, as well as those that drain away the body waste. Smoking can add years to your appearance, and can affect everything from your hair follicles, to your nail beds, to your epidermis.
Now is the time to begin to increase your intake of water. If you are used to drinking very little to no water at all throughout the day, try to add one to two glasses at a time.
The morning is one of the best times to start your intake. These initial glasses are important as you are reversing any mild dehydration that may have occurred overnight.
Ultimately, many health professionals recommend that you drink your body weight in ounces every day. This may seem like way too much at first, but it is a goal to try to achieve one day at a time.
A half an hour before you are going to eat a meal, pour yourself a glass, and finish it. Get into the habit of taking a bottle along with you when you go out, so that you can refresh yourself whenever you want.
If you are careful to do this throughout the day, you may find that your body is able to better flush out toxins, your energy level may increase, and your epidermis may feel more healthy and moist. Today is the perfect day to begin your journey to better hydration-pour yourself a glass right now!
