Get the 411 on the Benefits of H2O
We can’t think of anything better for cleansing and taking care of your skin than water. It is by far, nature’s best ingredient and an essential part of all of our lives. More than 70 percent of the earth’s surface is covered in water, while the average human body is made up of approximately 50 to 65 percent water. Talk about “water, water everywhere!” But what do we really know about how drinking water and proper hydration benefits our skin? And how can we make sure that we conserve and protect our precious water supply? Let’s break down some important facts about the almighty H2O.
The recommended amount of water to drink is around eight glasses per day. This task comes much easier for some than others, but it’s important to remember that water is essential to our health. Our bodies are mostly made up of water, but it can never have too much, especially for those people with active lifestyles. Whether taking simple steps every day or doing more intense workouts, we have to replenish our fluid intake regularly. Water benefits our skin not only because it helps to flush out toxins, but it also prevents dehydration. Drinking water everyday will make your skin healthier and more radiant.
Drinking plenty of water is awesome for your skin, but it can’t do it alone. Applying moisturizer helps to hydrate and protect all types of skin. When shopping for the best hydrating moisturizer, look for products that contain Hyaluronic Acid – also known as “moisture’s magnet” – like DERMA E Hydrating Day Cream, which helps to replenish dry, dehydrated skin.
The Magic of Micellar
Some studies have shown that not all water is good for the skin. There are various chemicals found in tap water that can cause acne or irritation on sensitive skin types. For those who can’t rinse with regular water, the alternative is Micellar Water. Made up of tiny cleansing oil molecules, micellar water draws out dirt and oil without drying your skin. For a refreshing cleanse, try DERMA E Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water.
