Drink Water & Your Skin Will Thank You

Human has become a work machine. Our hectic schedules don’t allow us to take care of our bodies. We often forget to drink a glass of water. As per different research studies, we are not consuming enough water per day.

We all know, water plays an essential role in food digestion and blood circulation, but do you know water is integral for your skin? When you do not drink enough water every cell of your body undergoes dehydration and there will be massive accumulation of toxins and impurities.

Drinking enough water helps the body to flush out toxins giving you healthier skin. When you do not drink enough water, your cells start to retain the water causing puffiness on your face. If your body is showing signs of puffiness that means you are not getting enough water. Moreover, water maintains the skin elasticity that tends to be lost with age. Water prevents the sagging of your jawline, waist, thighs, and upper arms.

Balancing the oil and water content, water also has a significant role in preventing the accumulation of excess oil and sebum, ultimately protecting your skin from acne. Water is your ultimate lifesaver, from giving your skin a radiant glow to helping you with proper digestion, water does wonders for our body.

Stop whatever you are doing right now and sip a glass of water. You should have at least 8 glasses of water per day.

It’s Time To Look Back The Basket Of Fruits & Vegetables

There are some fruits and vegetables like spinach, kale, sweet potato, and papaya, contain antioxidants that help protect your skin from free radical damage. Some fruits are a rich source of Vitamin C which is well-known for increasing collagen production. Collagen is important for increasing the strength of capillaries that transport blood to the skin hence increasing blood circulation to the skin means increased skin brightening.

Never Compromise On Your Beauty Sleep

When we sleep our body system automatically goes into a restorative phase. While we sleep, our blood circulation increases and all the organs go into repairing mode.

For example, there will be increased production of growth hormone that will help with muscle growth, actively control the production of cortisol (stress hormone), skin rebuilds the lost collagen, and reverses the damage caused by UV rays.

When you do not sleep well it will not only affect your physical and mental health, but it will also affect your physical appearance. The next day you may suffer from swollen eyelids, dark circles, wrinkles around the mouth, and dull skin.

However, when we sleep well, our skin recovers the moisture lost during the day and plays an active role in maintaining hydration. Increased blood circulation during sleep will help in erasing your dark circles. Set a goal to sleep early and take an 8-hour beauty sleep. And you will see a positive energy and refreshing feeling throughout the day.

Be Physically Active

Physical fitness will improve the overall quality of your life. It can save you from many life-threatening diseases. As it is said, health is one of the biggest blessings, so take care of it.

Exercise is not only limited to improving physical health. It plays a key role in improving the mental health of people. Regular exercise increases the production of serotonin (a happy hormone). It will make you feel good and free your mind from constant worries.

Try to eat a well-balanced diet, walk regularly, do some light exercise, sleep on time, and you will soon witness the change in your life.
