How water helps your skin

If you’ve noticed a little dullness in your complexion or seem to be battling more spots and wrinkles of late, it could be that you’re simply not drinking enough water. Most people understand the importance of keeping hydrated, but H20 also possesses a whole multitude of benefits for your skin. As the largest organ in your body, why not take care of your skin in such a simple way?

So, why is water so beneficial to your skin?

Firstly, natural spring water contains natural minerals such as calcium and iron that are vital for your body's growth and maintaining your skin's optimum moisture levels. By drinking water, it helps to keep the skin moist and flush pesky toxins away, leaving your skin smoother and glowing. In turn, this will help to keep those unwanted wrinkles at bay in the long-term.

If you’re prone to purchasing endless amounts of topical creams that all promise to halt the ageing process in its tracks, stop to think beforehand if you are keeping sufficiently hydrated. In a lot of cases, drinking adequate amounts of water can actually provide you with the soft, supple skin you are craving.

What can water do beauty wise?

A cold bath may not sound like the ideal Sunday night treat but it can work absolute wonders for combating stress related harm to your skin. Just a few minutes of soaking will do the trick and also help to keep your skin's natural oils present. If you’re partial to those dreaded under-eye bags or have noticed a little more puffiness in this area than you would like, try placing a cold water compress directly under the eye to reduce any inflammation.

Cold water is also known to naturally tighten pores. Splash a little onto your skin after cleansing your face. Not only will it do away with uninvited redness but it will also help to close pores and prevent them from getting clogged up, creating the perfect canvas when you go to apply your makeup.
