Water – the ultimate anti-ageing remedy?
Looking your best, even as the years roll by, is something of an obsession for the vast majority of people.
Our fascination with acting our age but not looking it is one of the main reasons why the anti-ageing market was worth $50.2 billion globally at last count.
However, unbeknown to most, you don’t have to spend a fortune on the latest anti-ageing beauty product or treatment to look and feel your best, whatever your age.
Drinking water has been proven to reverse the signs of ageing. As huge fans of H2O, we know better than most that water is completely underestimated by the beauty market. Here we uncover the rejuvenating benefits linked to drinking water so you can discover the ultimate anti-ageing remedy.
It’s a great detox
With spring well underway, people looking for renewal and rejuvenation will be busy planning their annual detox or cleanse. There’s a long list of detoxes and cleanses available to try – some of which work, some of which don’t – but you don’t need to rush out to stock up on an array of weird and wonderful ingredients to complete your spring body overhaul.
Still, filtered water is the only ingredient you need to achieve a detox that strengthens your skin and wider body from within. The water you drink actively nourishes cells, clearing out toxins, and other waste products as it goes. As a result, skin is left cleaner, clearer, and more youthful looking.
It prevents dehydration
Whilst you can’t expect overhydration to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, drinking more water does prevent dehydration, which is particularly ageing. Dehydrated skin looks and feels dry and wrinkled. With the correct level of fluids, you can hydrate effectively to look after your skin from the inside and keep dehydration at bay.
Hydrated skin will appear moister, but that isn’t an excuse to let your wider beauty regime slip. You should still apply moisturiser on a daily basis to lock in moisture and protect your skin. Drinking water can also even skin tone, reduce dark circles under the eyes, improve elasticity, and leave the skin looking and feeling plumper to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and pores.
Experiencing the effects of great hydration doesn’t take long either as 42-year-old Sarah Smith discovered when she upped her water intake for 30 days. Read Sarah’s story, and see those all-important before and after pictures, right here.
It helps you feel younger
As well as great looking skin, there’s a lot to gain from staying hydrated. Drinking water lubricates and cushions joints to make your body more limber. Boosting water intake has even proved beneficial for sufferers of arthritis. Increased water intake can also make weight loss and management easier as Popsugar details:
“Drinking a glass of water before meals helps you eat less, since thirst is often mistaken for hunger. In fact, studies have found that folks who stay on top of their water intake actually consume fewer calories. This is also a great technique for someone who tends to overeat when they’re bored… We know that drinking more water helps you before, after, and during your workout, but it actually helps you burn more calories! One study showed that people who drank eight to 12 glasses of water a day burned more fat than those who only drank four.”
Great hydration has been connected to improved sleep quality and quantity too. Drinking water can help to limit night-time dehydration for a better night’s sleep that’ll leave you waking up refreshed and full of energy the next morning.
