Thanks to technological advances, experts in dermatology and skincare have been able to observe the effect that our diet has on our skin’s texture and appearance. Many major studies have found links between our diet and our skin, after all, food is how we fuel our bodies. One crucial aspect of our diet is our water consumption.
Our body is almost 70 percent water; Water plays a major role in skin health. That’s why drinking water is undoubtedly the easiest and most efficient way to preventing the signs of ageing. Water keeps the body hydrated and refreshed and people who drink large amounts of water are less likely to show signs of ageing. Drinking water hydrates cells, which makes skin appear younger and plumper. Dehydration, over time, can cause more fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.
When you maintain good hydration, it can effect your skin across each of the skin's layers - The epidermis (the outer layer), Dermis (the underlying skin) and the Hypodermis - in many ways. If the out layer (epidermis) doesn’t get enough water, the skin will lose elasticity and feel rough.
Water gives skin a more youthful appearance and works to maintain the overall health of the body, which can also make skin look more youthful. Water helps maintain all the body’s natural functions including ridding the body of toxins.
Also, water helps vitamins and nutrients to easily flow throughout the body. In particular, it collaborates with all of the body’s organs to distribute vitamins E, C and B12, which help maintain skin that is soft and youthful looking.
Here are some common questions we get:
- How much water do we need to drink daily?
Normally, it’s recommended that a person drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day, but it can be more or less depending on the climate, exercise, weight, and overall health of the person.
- When is it essential to drink water?
It’s very important to drink and restore lost fluids after exercising, being out in the heat, or doing any activity that breaks a sweat. Don’t forget that water is good not only for your insides but also for your outward appearance!

It’s also important to moisturize quickly after cleansing, while the skin is still damp, to lock in the moisture and keep the skin hydrated.
