No amount of moisturiser will show results if your body is dehydrated. One of the easiest and most affordable ways to get healthy skin is by drinking enough water all through the day. Your daily requirement depends on your weight, the weather and any illness you suffer from, but on an average, women need about 2.2 litres of water a day.

Drinking enough water flushes out toxins from the body and keeps a lot of problems at bay. Lack of water, on the other hand, can lead to dehydration, which is responsible for several skin problems. So if you are facing any of the following skin problems you definitely need to reach for some water stat!

 

Dry skin

Dry skin

Internal hydration is as important as external moisturising. Your skin will never look or feel soft and plump if your water intake is low. Dry, dull and saggy-looking skin is a clear sign of a dehydrated body. So if you want to bring back that lost glow, drink a few glasses of water right away.

 

Deep wrinkles

Deep wrinkles

Not drinking adequate water can lead to premature ageing and wrinkles. If you already have wrinkles, they might look more prominent. Drinking 8 to 9 glasses of water will plump up the skin internally and give your skin a youthful and radiant look.

 

Breakouts

Breakouts

You already know this, drinking water helps flush out toxins from the body. Dehydration, on the other hand, causes toxins to circulate inside the body, leading to breakouts and acne. The first step towards clear skin begins with drinking a lot of water and staying hydrated. You can add mint leaves and cucumber slices to your water to make it more palatable.

 

Dark circles

Dark circles

The delicate under-eye area gets puffy when you haven’t slept well and gets darker when your body is dehydrated. So if you have dark circles and no possible explanation for it, try increasing your water intake and see the change!

 

Chapped lips

Chapped lips

We all want smooth, soft and pink lips, but did you know dehydration is one of the leading causes of chapped lips? Just like your skin, your delicate lips also need water to look plump!

So drink up, girl, and watch your skin start to glow!
