When the sun is out in full force, you constantly hear how important it is for your body to stay hydrated. In turn, this means you need to be drinking a lot of water. But did you also know that your water intake during the summer is also super important for your skin? Yes, it’s true!
Making sure you drink lots of water will not only impact your overall health, but it will also affect your skin… in a really good way! Here are three reasons why you should give your skin enough hydration during the warm weather months.
1. Replace water lost from sweat. In the heat, there is no doubt that our bodies sweat more than usual. This includes your face, so replenishing your skin with the water it loses throughout the day not only helps improve skin elasticity, but also prevents your skin from producing more oils, which can lead to breakouts.
2. Recover from sunburn. If you happen to have a little too much fun in the sun (it gets the best of us), don’t worry, just make sure your body is getting more water than normal. Why? According to this study, when you have sunburn your body draws fluid to the skin surface, meaning it’s taking the hydration away from other parts of the body and needs to be replenished.
3. Keep your skin soft and vibrant. The combination of more sun and heat can also cause your skin look and feel more dull and dry. How to avoid that? Drinking more water, of course.
The type of water you are drinking can also make a really big difference. One of our favorite brands is Boxed Water Is Better®:
