OKAY…. But HOW does drinking water help with wrinkles?
Well, if I told you that drinking water reduces wrinkles, that would be a myth. HOWEVER, what happens when you DON’T drink enough water….
According to Dr. Alexander Rivkin (a world-renowned rhinoplasty surgeon), people who ingest less than two to three liters of water per day may experience chronic dehydration, which causes the body to pull water away from all organs, including the skin. “This causes damage to the cells involved, and damaged skin cells cause wrinkles, as well as thin and saggy skin throughout the body,” he said.
In other words, this beauty myth is partially accurate because all people need to drink enough water to avoid chronic dehydration and cell damage over time. However, the belief that drinking more water can moisturize your skin from the inside out simply isn’t accurate. “Drinking water is like electricity,” said Rivkin. “Your dishwasher needs it to function, but if you double the amount the dishwasher gets, your dishes do not come out twice as clean.”
In the morning, I personally like to refer to myself as a wilted flower coming back to life when I guzzle a big glass of water in the morning. ♥
Soooooo, the list of reasons as to Why Is Water Important can go on and on…Thus, we understood that drinking this fluid of life has abundant benefits and is very necessary for the healthy functioning of your body.
Some people advise to drink 8 glasses of water a day, while others suggest to drink 1,5-2 litters. I would recommend to listen to the needs of your body and get a professional advice from your doctor.
