Drinking plenty of water daily is crucial for your health as it aids in digestion, circulation, absorption and even excretion. But, does staying hydrated also help with the skin's health? Here are some answers to  questions and the ways to keep your skin hydrated. Image Courtesy: Getty

You Lose Water All Day Long

You should regularly rehydrate yourself as your body continuously loses water every day. Unfortunately, the water you drink does very less to hydrate the skin as it reaches all the other organs before it reaches the skin. So, it is important to provide some care from the outside.

Dehydrated Skin is Vulnerable

Once you lose a significant amount of water, the dehydration will cause your skin to become dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin is more prone to wrinkling and other damages. It is even more important to keep your skin hydrated to avoid any harm to the skin. Image Courtesy: Getty


Skin Needs Water Too

Just like the rest of the body, your skin is made up of cells that are made up of water. Just like every other organ, your skin needs water to stay hydrated and function properly. Image Courtesy: Getty



Use moisturizers to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Use both day and night moisturizers to ensure 24/7 hydration. Avoid chemical based products and stick to natural and healthy moisturizing options. Apply the moisturizers several times on your skin thoroughly, especially during summer. Image Courtesy: Getty
