The average adult loses a lot of fluid every day normally through perspiration, urination, bowel movements and breathing. The only way to replace these losses is through the water you drink and the foods you eat.
Water is an essential beauty product. Not only does it enhance your skin, hair and nails but it also gives you an inner glow thanks to all its benefits for your body.
So next time you want a beauty boost, grab a glass!
Water helps to keep your skin tight and toned, cleansed and flushed of toxins. Your body naturally fills cells with water to make them firm and tight, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles for a smooth finish. When the cells are filled with water they become bulged and push against your skin from the inside, and this can help to reduce unsightly marks such as cellulite and flabby skin.
Drinking water hydrates cells, and your hair is no exception. Drink plenty of water to make your hair naturally soft and silky. If you have frizzy or brittle hair, don't bother with expensive products – just drink more water and you will see a difference in no time.
How much water?
Experts recommend 2.5 litres a day, that is about 6–8 glasses, but as all bodies are different, check for your weight, height and age. The more you drink the more your body will crave water, so give it a go. You will quickly notice positive results.
