Hey guys 👋 welcome back to another SkinLovin’ Sundays post as part of my weekly blog series! For those of you who are new to The Typical Beauty Blog or those of you who don’t follow me… yet 😜 its basically a series which I started to focus exclusively on skincare. So if thats something which you fancy then make sure to check every Sunday 🗓. In these weekly posts I’m gonna try to focus less on products & more on techniques & tips for you guys… so let’s get started 👉 Today’s topic is: “The benefits of water”
“Beauty from within”
Our bodies consists of around 70% water, that is a LOT right guys? Many of you know just how important it is to stay hydrated 💦 especially when its hotter 🌞 outside but do we all know why exactly we’re told to drink water & how it benefits the skin? Well if you’ve had these questions for a long time ⏲ then keep on reading.
Flushing out toxins
Water is the substance which acts as a transport medium 🚗 carrying toxins & other waste products from around the body to be eliminated, just think of how great it is for the insides… all these bad chemicals ☠️ are leaving the body. Clearing up the inside = clearing up the outside, but that’s not everything, water also helps transport oxygen & nutrients (the good stuff 🙌) around the body.
Restore moisture levels
Drinking water also helps to detoxify the body, as I said earlier water helps to eliminate toxins/waste products. Tthis is a great detox for the skin, as refreshed skin cells have a youthful glow 👌 alongside providing a healthy complexion, in the long term, water also fights the ageing process 👵🏻 I know what you’re thinking &… yes really, because water helps fight wrinkles & dry skin (side effects of being dehydrated) In other words drinking water allows the skin to improve its elasticity.
For a long time 🗓people have been using COLD water for its rejuvenation effects, its said that steaming the face with hot water opens the pores, releasing things that have been clogged inside & by splashing cold water the pores close up. Therefore cold & hot water supposedly play a role in tightening & opening the pores, but this has been debated as some argue pores don’t have nerve muscles & so surely cannot react to temperature… but hey I’m just sharing with y’all what I know & what I’ve experienced!
Many people don’t focus on the type of water they’re using on their skin… does this sound extreme? 🤔 it certainly isn’t guys! You could have all the moisturisers in the world, be using every technique known to dermatologists but if you’re using hard water 💧 then its all really pointless isn’t it? Hard water dries out the skin because of the dissolved calcium & magnesium levels in the supply & its commonly known as tap water. It might be worth checking whether you’re in a region which high levels of hardware & then investing in tap filters accordingly, in order to filter the water making it less harsh on the skin & hair
