Water and the skin
In monsoon, the cool weather makes you drink less water. It's important to stay hydrated, so don't wait until you feel thirsty to take a drink. By the time you're thirsty, you may already be dehydrated.
Is water really essential for the appearance of your skin?
While not everyone agrees, we think the answer is a resounding yes! Skin is intricately tied to the overall health of your body. When your body is properly hydrated, you'll look better and feel better. Water gives you a radiant complexion and in addition, bloating and puffiness often disappears.
How much water is needed?
The amount of water needed by an individual varies, depending on body weight and level of daily physical activity. Also illness, pregnancy, and breastfeeding are special situations that demand greater fluid consumption. Drinking too much water may lead to a rare condition called Hyponatremia. Check with your physician for recommendations.
At Kosmoderma, we follow an easy formula to help you determine how much water is needed every day for maximum physical health:
- Take your body weight in kilograms
- Divide this number by 8
- The resulting number approximates how much 8-ounce glasses of water you should drink every day.
For example, if your weight is 50kg, you should drink 6 glasses of water every day. If you are involved in intense physical activity, add 2 extra glasses of water to the final number.
Consuming lots of fresh fruits and vegetables for healthy skin will satisfy some of your body's fluid requirement. Also milk, juice, and other healthy beverages are part of your daily total. Just make sure that most of your daily fluid is pure, clear water. So keep a large bottle of water on hand daily and keep the body hydrated.
