Cosmetics have always been in favor of drinking … water, that is.
(Other drinks are also amazing, but that’s for another article.) The latest news and information on cosmetic surgery, beautiful skin, and aesthetic improvements constantly points to hydration as an antidote to dry, itchy skin. The question arises: how much water do you need to drink for good skin?

Regardless of your zodiac sign, you are a water child. Just ask Health Direct. Water makes up 80% of the human body, and experts say it is important for all your chemical health processes, including:
- Nutrient uptake
- Stable body temperature
Although it is not on the Health Direct list, skin health is also affected by water consumption, but how much water do you need to change the situation?
How much water do I need for good skin?
The Australian Dietary Guidelines (ADG) recommend that men drink 2.6 liters of fluid and women – 2.1 liters a day for good health. Fluid can come from a variety of sources, but pure water should be the number one source, followed by fruits and vegetables with plenty of water.. There are no specific recommendations on how much water to drink to moisturize the skin.
The ADG has recommendations, but many of us don’t always follow them. Is the consequence of dry skin? Probably. The Better Health Channel questions whether additional drinking water beautifies and beautifies the skin. To date, only a limited number of small studies have investigated the relationship between water intake and skin hydration.
The study that is most often mentioned shows improved skin hydration in study participants who consumed more water. However, the researchers themselves say the improvement was most noticeable in subjects who were already dehydrated when they began the study.
One of the most interesting comments we found was on HuffPost. The dermatologist told them, “Dehydrated skin is mostly superficial and is not affected by internal water content. Not to say that drinking water is not important, but maintaining skin hydration depends on skin care.
Here’s how to do it…
