So much regarding the appearance of your skin’s exterior has to do with what’s going on inside the body. Of course, as a beauty company, we make products that bring out your most beautiful features, but we also feel it’s so important to discuss another truly critical aspect of achieving gorgeous skin: drinking water.
Simplicity is the Ultimate Beauty Remedy
Adequate hydration makes the skin supple, moist, and increases elasticity. It improves skin texture and tone, often giving way to a more youthful appearance. It’s no coincidence that both the human body and the earth itself are comprised of 70% water. Likewise, nourishing our bodies with purified water is one of the simplest yet most effective ways to achieve health and beauty.
Japanese Water Therapy
If you’re into regimens, you may want to consider Japanese water therapy, as part of your overall beauty and health self-care practice. The Japanese, long known for their infinite wisdom in health and beauty, have seemingly perfected the ritual of water therapy.
What this routine consists of is consuming 6 (6 oz) glasses of room temperature water after waking up in the morning, on an empty stomach. Then, wait 45 minutes before you consume breakfast. Supporting this is a method of eating: eat for only 15 minutes at a time, and then wait 2 hours before eating or drinking again. Water should also be consumed throughout the day, but hydrating immediately upon rising gives your body a powerful kickstart to the day. This regimen is purported to support the body as it purges free radicals, while also helping the body manage such ailments as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and even cancer. While Japanese water therapy has not yet been scientifically tested to verify these claims, it is believed the practice can support weight loss, cleanse the digestive tract, and regulate the gut.
Furthermore, there are so many scientifically-proven benefits of consuming appropriate amounts of purified water. These include:
- Removes waste products
- Ensures proper kidney function
- Cleansing the body of toxins and impurities
- Supports optimal brain function
- Balancing body fluids
- Aids digestion
- Protects delicate tissues
- Lubricates and cushions joints
- Reduces oxidative stress (which never looks good on your skin!)
- Hydrates and plumps the skin
- Improves mood
- Excellent for circulation
- Improves energy
- Lessens the likelihood of headaches
- Enhances memory function
- Aids in weight loss
Pretty amazing, right? Just clean, purified, fresh water does all of this to keep the body functioning and healthy.
On the Subject of Eliminating Toxins
Elimination is one of the most important factors of good health. Everything that goes into your body should benefit the whole overall system, enabling your cells and organs to function at their highest level. At the same time, proper hydration means you are literally cleaning your digestive system throughout the day, allowing your body to process out all the stuff you don’t need; all the stuff that should not be circulating and showing up on your complexion. The better functioning your body is, the more you’ll be able to see it clearly on your face. Ample hydration equals an overall better running system, which means toxins are properly eliminated, your kidneys are functioning well as they process waste material out, circulation will be powered up, and your digestion will be on point.
The more water, the cleaner the body.
Take Care of Your Body, Take Care of Your Skin
To get the most radiant, beautiful skin, you’ve got to take care of it, both inside and out. While we definitely suggest using the best skincare products you can, you should never see products as a quick fix to avoid being in good health. Stay hydrated and healthy; bottoms up, friends!
