There are a number of things we don’t look forward to about aging. Less energy, decreased mobility, and lines and wrinkles appearing on our skin. But in modern society, many of us are experiencing certain aging effects prematurely because of how we treat our bodies. We eat processed foods, sugary drinks, and spend too much time sitting down staring at screens.
All of this is normal in today’s society. But we can fight the effects of premature aging. One simple way of doing this is by drinking more water.
A high percentage of our body is made up of water. It’s contained in all of our cells, making it vital to every aspect of how we function. But as we age, this water percentage drops. This is one of the main reasons why young skin is so soft and supple, and older skin starts to become dry and wrinkled.
This comparison suggests how important water and hydration are to the way our skin looks and feels. When you stay well-hydrated, your skin will greatly benefit because your cells are flush with water. Just think of the difference between the skin of a grape and a raisin for an exaggerated example of this. Your skin will look smoother and younger with fewer lines, and will feel softer and more supple.
Hydration also helps you avoid dry skin as it helps to promote the growth of new cells. New, fresh skin cells will replace the old, dry ones (and the same theory applies to hair growth, too!). Another important factor is the detoxifying effect of water. Staying well-hydrated is said to help flush toxins out of your body, making your body and your skin healthier.
Feel younger with proper hydration
Staying hydrated affects the way you feel as well as the way you look. If you often feel tired and sluggish at work in the afternoon, it might be that you’ve not been drinking enough water. When you drink plenty of water every day and avoid drinking too many diuretics (like alcohol!), you’ll probably find yourself with heaps more energy.
Get that youthful energy back so you can enjoy socializing with friends or running around with your kids more often.
