Water and Your Skin. Drink Up!

skin_medicaYour skin is the largest organ of your body, so it is the most susceptible of showing the world signs that you are aging. There is an abundance of wrinkle reducing creams on the market to choose from, so it can be overwhelming to decide what works best for you. A brand we offer called Skin Medica, contains scientifically proven ingredients such as antioxidants, collagen, human growth factors and protein to rejuvenate your skin resulting in youthful looking skin.

Unfortunately, skin care products like Skin Medica aren’t the only solution to the problem. If your skin is dry and fine lines and wrinkles have made a noticeable appearance, it is probably because your skin is thirsty. The daily recommendation for drinking water varies and depends on various factors, like climate and your environment. Participating in outdoor and physical activities will require you to up your water intake, and living in Arizona means long periods of scorching heat. It would be wise to drink a minimum of eight to nine cups of water a day.

That may seem like a lot to drink, but water is the most cost effective beauty product and is well worth it. If you have trouble with the lack of taste from water, there is a fun and easy fix. Instead of purchasing expensive flavored water products, make a delicious water drink with combinations of your favorite fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices. Cinnamon, apples, strawberries, basil or even jalapeno and peaches will easily wake up your taste buds. The possibilities are endless, and you can experiment until you find your favorite flavor combinations.

Water has great skin and health benefits, and it can help you feel better too. It can lessen bothersome headaches, curb your appetite to avoid overeating, and make you feel more fit and leaner. Depriving your skin of hydration will prevent you from looking and feeling your best.
