Why Water is a Must-Have for Healthy Skin!

Posted January 05, 2023 in MedSpa Treatments, Skin Care Treatments, Skincare Products, Uncategorized

We all know it can be difficult to drink the recommended amount of water every day. We get busy, we quench our thirst with ice coffee or a cold soda, and sometimes, we just forget! However, making sure you are properly hydrated is a keystone to having and maintaining healthy, glowing skin.

(Many esthetic procedures, such as PRP and PRF, require that you properly hydrate before your treatment to ensure best results. If you are interested in either of these treatments, click here to learn more!)

Need some extra motivation to down those 64 oz every day? Here are just some of the benefits of getting your water intake up:

Your Skin will Look Healthier

By hydrating your body, you hydrate the cells that build it. When your skin cells are properly hydrated, they become plumper, which in turn leads to your skin looking more youthful and vibrant.

It Protects Your Skin

Hydrated skin better protects against environmental pollutants and free radicals that can cause premature aging.

It Helps Flush out Toxins

Drinking enough water helps flush toxins from your body, which in turn can help your skin to look clearer and reduce the appearance of blemishes.

It Can Reduce the Appearance of Fine Lines

Proper hydration will help to keep your skin balanced, reducing dryness, which can help to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

While hydrating internally is necessary, there are many products and treatments that can also aid in externally improving the look and health of your skin.
