Is Drinking Water the Key to Good Skin?
Drink Water...If You're Thirsty
The "drink-water" treatment seems to be is a myth that appeared from thin air. There are no scientific studies examining this effect; in fact, there is no evidence that drinking water directly correlates to your skin at all. If you are completely dehydrated, then drinking a glass of water will help your skin as much as it will help the rest of your body. And if you are thirsty, that is a sign that your body needs more water. However, there is no need to be forcing yourself to drink unusually large amounts of water for glowing, celebrity-worthy skin.
Moisturize Your Skin
Instead, if your skin is feeling dry, the best way to hydrate it is with a moisturizer. Moisturizers will replenish the skin, as well as temporarily plump fine lines. And even if you generally have oily or combination skin, remember that you can moisturize your dry areas as well. Just be sure to use an oil-free moisturizer to ensure you don't cause any breakouts.
While healthy habits are in general a good rule, skincare products are an essential part of maintaining healthy skin.
