10 Skin Benefits of Drinking More Water That Will Make You More Gorgeous, Darling

The world's best tool for making you look better is readily available all around us. It literally comes on tap.

So, we decided to look at the 10 ways water can boost your beauty routine and bring it to a whole new level. Here are the key skin benefits of drinking water. We guarantee you’ll want to pay a visit to the water dispenser after.

1) Water can help you lose weight

Drinking water throughout the day, and especially before and during a meal, can help keep your stomach feeling full - decreasing your appetite and stopping you from snacking and over indulging, therefore helping you to consume fewer calories and helping you lose weight. This is especially successful when paired with an exercise regime.

2) Water keeps your skin looking young

There's no need for expensive (and dubiously effective) anti-ageing creams. Simply by ensuring you drink enough water can help to keep your skin hydrated, therefore reducing dryness and increasing suppleness. It’s amazing in how many ways drinking plenty of water benefits your skin.

3) Water can make your smile more beautiful

Drinking water helps your saliva production, which is essential but often overlooked for good oral health. A dry mouth is a risk factor for dental diseases. Regular drinking after food will also help to flush teeth clean and discourage tooth decay - especially with mains water, as it has the recommended dosage of fluoride.

4) Water makes your face glow

You can drink water to boost your skin glow too. As well as splashing warm water on your face to open pores and cold water to close pores, drinking enough water will also add to your healthy glow as it delivers essential nutrients to your skin cells and keeps your skin replenished. It will also improve skin hydration levels, reducing the occurrence of dry and flaky skin and helping to enhance its elasticity. Extra glow is also on the list of benefits of drinking hot water for skin. You can choose both a warm and a cold setting on your Virgin Pure water dispenser for a glass of water at the perfect temperature to splash on your skin. You can thank us later.

5) Water keeps you looking and feeling healthy

As well as helping to battle against skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, drinking water also keeps your digestive system and metabolism working by flushing out nasty toxins which would otherwise give you an ill pallor.

6) Water reduces swelling

If you’ve noticed extra-puffiness in the morning, consider upping your hydration game. Swelling can have different causes, but you should keep in mind that it can also signal you’re not getting enough water. That’s when your body tries to keep hold of all the water it can which leads to water retention, which leads to swelling. So, make sure you keep up with your hydration goals to keep puffiness at a minimum.

7) Water means less itchy skin

One of the skin benefits of drinking water is that you can keep that itchy feeling at bay, especially during the winter. Dry skin tends to be itchy, but fortunately you can banish it by making sure you moisturise and by keeping a bottle of water nearby so you’re always hydrated.

8) Water might help banish pimples and acne

That’s right! Sometimes the solution to this annoying skin problem is drinking more water. This helps flush out the toxins in your system that can lead to breakouts.

9) Water helps avoid skin rashes caused by overheating

If you’re familiar with rashes during summer time or after a workout, making sure you’re never low on hydration might help. Water plays a big part in keeping your body temperature at the right level and could stop these rashes in their tracks. So, if you need one more skin benefit for drinking water, here it is.

10) Water balances your pH levels

Have you noticed that drinking more water makes you feel a whole lot better from the inside out? Another good tip to keep your energy topped up is to add more hydrating foods to your diet. We've got a list of them, so you can pick and choose your favourites.
