Water Does A Body Good

August 13, 2020

glass of water

Our bodies are 60% water so it stands to reason that we need to keep our bodies hydrated. Drinking water is the quickest and easiest way to hydrate. According to BBC Good Food, there are a number of health benefits to drinking water.

Some of the many benefits include:
  • Improves memory and mood
  • Reduces headaches and migraines
  • Helps with digestion
  • Helps manage anxiety
Water also helps with skin care. According to Manna Hydration, the benefits include:
  • Fewer wrinkles
  • Improved complexion
  • Slows the signs of aging
  • Reduces puffiness
Traditionally, it's recommended to drink 64 ounces of water a day, but whether you adhere to that or not, do try to drink water during the day, especially instead of colas and other artificial drinks. It can't help but do a body good. I know I feel much better when I drink 64 ounces of water a day. My skin feels hydrated, my hair is softer, I don't eat as much at meals, and I just feel generally healthier.

How much water do you drink during the day? I'd love to hear from readers on what your experience is with this age-old wisdom. ♥

A beard paste will re-hydrat...

Your skin is made up of three layers: the subcutis, the dermis, and the epidermis. The epidermis is the outermost layer - the skin that you see - which consists mainly of cells called keratinocytes that form several layers that constantly grow outwards as the exterior cells die and flake off. (National Geographic, Health & Human Body)

Exfoliating your skin is what helps aid the sloughing off of those dead skin cells, and is one of the most important steps in your skin care routine. Exf...
