Baby, it’s cold outside! When it comes to taking care of skin, we tend to only give ourselves a little TLC when the warmer months arrive. Maybe this is because we usually show a little more skin during those spring and summer months. However, in order for you to have truly healthier and more youthful looking skin, you must nourish and tend to your skin all year round. One of the most thought of ways to do this is to simply drink more water. Even though It is a well known fact that drinking adequtate water has amazing benefits for your body, does it really create healthier, hydrated skin?
Surprisingly, the answer is no. According to studies, drinking water to improve skin health is a wide misconception for women. Various studies and testimonials have concluded that even though drinking water hydrates your body, it does not make a visible difference in the appreance of skin. Kate Roden, a Dermatologist of San francisco says via RealSimple, “Humans aren’t like plants. Our skin doesn’t perk up when we consume water. In fact, when you ingest it, “water doesn’t go straight to the skin,” she says. “It goes through the intestines, gets absorbed into your bloodstream, and is filtered by kidneys. Then it hydrates cells. When it comes to moisturizing skin, drinking water falls short.” Additionaly, whether your skin is dry, oily, or even combination, it is generally on based on your genes.
No need to worry, there are many ways to go about applying nourishment directly to the skin to allow for optimal absorption.
