Nutrition experts tell us that we should be consuming ½ of our body weight in ounces every day. To do that takes a lot of commitment, but if you do, your body processes work a lot better. Staying hydrated will help to lubricate your joints, cushion your brain, help to detox your body, improve your digestion and the processing of nutrients, increase elasticity in the skin, and delay signs of aging. Water is an essential nutrient!
The skin is our largest organ and is certainly reflective of the body’s overall vitality. The body will reflect its internal health in the external organ (skin). Good nutrition and hydration are essential to maintaining radiant and healthy skin tissue.
If you have younger skin, taking care of your skin now and slowing the aging process will serve you later. As we age the body’s ability to renew skin cells becomes less efficient. The amount of natural moisture is also reduced. As the skin ages, collagen production also diminishes, contributing to thinner skin with less flexibility.
