Did you know water can improve your appearance?

Millions of people today are taken up with their appearance. Plastic surgeons are making a mint off people that simply want a face lift, chin tuck, nose job, double chin removal, and many other cosmetic changes. Drinking more water can’t solve these problems but it can drastically improve the appearance of the skin as well as the elasticity of it.

According to WaterInfo the human body is more than 60% water, blood is 92% water, the brain and muscles are 75% water and the bones are about 22% water. That is a lot of water making up our body. As we age the amount of water in our body decreases, the largest decrease occurs within the first 10 years of life. The physical condition of each person also determines how much decrease takes place, for instance, obesity can decrease the amount of water in the body to as low as 45%. That is actually a long way from 60%.

We all know the recommended amount of water to drink each day is eight 8-ounce glasses. The problem is, many of us don’t stick to that amount. We find other things to drink like soda and juice and even power drinks. These offer liquid to the body but not the kind it needs because most of these drinks also contain a lot of sugar. That sugar is the leading cause of obesity in our nation, also causing a lot of other health problems. We also reach for coffee every morning to wake us up. While it contains water, it is also a diuretic that actually removes more water from our system than it provides.

Not drinking enough water leads to dehydration which affects vital organs in the body such as the kidneys and the lungs. The largest organ it affects is our skin. Most people have dealt with dry, flaking, itchy skin during the cold winter months and know how uncomfortable it is. We use lotion to help soften and moisturize the skin but drinking enough water would also help. Water replenishes skin tissue, moisturizes, increases skin elasticity, flushes out toxins, improves blood circulation, increases energy levels and helps to present a youthful, radiant complexion.

One of the problems people have with water is the taste. We are all picky about how things taste and if our water doesn’t taste good we would rather reach for a soda or juice because it tastes good. That is why markets have pulled in the flavored water that also contains a lot of sugar. It is possible to have great-tasting water, we just have to know what it takes to accomplish that task. Water straight out of the tap is generally safe to drink but may not taste good. There are still contaminants in the water even though it has been treated at the city facility. There are home water treatment systems on the market that will remove many of the remaining contaminants making the water taste much better. The reverse osmosis system is one of those home water treatment systems that will dramatically improve the taste of your water and reduce those harmful contaminants. Great tasting drinking water can come right out of your kitchen tap with the reverse osmosis system. This system provides sparkling clean water without buying it in a bottle. Basically you can have great tasting safe, natural water to drink that will also improve your overall health and your cosmetic appearance. Drinking water has never been so easy and has never tasted so good.
