H20 - The anti-ageing answer
Want a more youthful-looking complexion? Hydrate your way to skin radiance by making sure you drink enough water. Water is essential to maintaining optimal skin moisture and delivering vital nutrients to the skin cells. It helps to replenish the skin tissue and assists in increasing its elasticity, resulting in a delay in the onset of ageing, like wrinkles and fine lines.
Our bodies are made up of around 70% water, so it makes sense that we need to keep drinking enough to keep the entire body functioning. However, by the time we feel physically ‘thirsty’ we are already dehydrated, so we have to consciously drink water every day.
What does drinking water do for the skin?
Actively staying hydrated is extremely important in following an anti-ageing skin care routine, as drinking enough water makes your skin glow. Our skin is the largest organ in our body. Regular and plentiful water consumption can improve the colour and texture of your skin by ensuring cell turnaround time is optimal. Drinking water also helps the skin regulate body temperature through sweating.

Ways to get your water
Not everyone finds it easy to drink 8 glasses of water per day. But there are ways to make sure you get that hydration. Firstly, carry water with you everywhere you go. That way, you will sip away constantly throughout the day, giving yourself maximum benefit and staying evenly hydrated, rather than trying to get it all in at once.
You can also infuse your water with lemon, cucumber or pieces of fruit to give it a flavour and enhance the nutrient benefit. Raw fruits and vegetables have a high water content so also assist in keeping the body hydrated.
Hydration must come from the inside and the outside
Hydrating your skin from the inside out is excellent for health and skin radiance, but you still need to use gentle cleansers and topical moisturisers for the outer layers of your skin. Moisturising your skin both internally and externally is a critical combination for healthy, beautiful skin.
