Alright, ya’ll. We’ve got something major to discuss- your water intake. Yes, I know, it’s not the most glamorous and it seems like everywhere you turn another health fanatic is trying to shove water down your throat… But listen up, you need water. Not only for that hot body, but for that glowing skin!
Water is seriously life. You may know that your body is 75% water, which is crazy cool, but did you also know that your brain is 85% water!? Water also keeps your blood thin and moving smoothly throughout the body. But when you aren’t drinking enough, the blood gets thick and those water-deficient organs begin pulling water from the skin cells. This can cause a whole host of problems, but let’s focus on the ones that directly affect the face-

There are some differing theories concerning the amount of water, but it seems as long as you drink around 64 ounces of water a day, you should be good. Of course you don’t want to drink all of this in one sitting, you should try and space it out throughout the day.
If you have trouble remembering to drink water or want to keep track of how much you drink, there are various apps you can get! I currently use the Drink Water app, which keeps track and allows you to set an alarm to drink water throughout the day! It’s great for getting you into the habit.
Alright, lovelies. Hopefully I’ve convinced you to start drinking more (water.) If you can’t remember to do it for your organs, at least do it for your skin!
