Surprisingly enough, drinking a lot of water does not make your skin look young and beautiful. Many women, including Hollywood actresses and high-profile top-models, have been taking the advice to drink as much water as possible for years. The British Nutrition Foundation claimed that balanced diet and sunscreen are way more helpful for maintaining healthy skin. The Food for Skin report highlights that no major research can back up the popular advice to stay well hydrated for keeping the skin look beautiful.
Report author Heather Yuregir said: “Just drinking water for the sake of drinking water really has no effect on improving the appearance of skin. It is just a common misconception.” Vitamins A, B, C and E contained in fruit and vegetables are more important for keeping your skin healthy. The vitamin deficiency results in dry, cracked, peeling or itchy skin.
Report authors agree that drinking a lot of water benefits the overall health. Major factors that speed up skin ageing process are smoking and expose to sun.
