What Proper Hydration Can Do For Your Looks

Whether you spend an hour in front of the mirror each day carefully crafting your look or a few minutes swiping on some mascara and lip gloss, being aware of important beauty factors like hydration is just plain smart. Hydration is a natural part of your full body health, so you take care of both your health and your looks when you hydrate properly. Read on for some hydration tips and tricks to ensure you always look your best.

Basic Information

To start off, remember that hydration beauty products are certainly fine to use, but they cannot make up for natural hydration that should be part of your daily habits. Keep your body naturally hydrated throughout the day by drinking lots of water. The key to good hydration is balance, so remember that water is not the only way to hydrate. Another great option is fresh-squeezed fruit and vegetable juices, particularly juices from green leafy vegetables, cucumbers and celery. These juices contain fiber to flush out salt and toxins. This will improve your circulation, make you feel less bloated and improve your body’s overall hydration.

While recommendations on just how much water you should drink each day vary, a good general rule of thumb is to ensure you consume at least eight 8-ounce glasses. Also keep in mind that drinking large quantities of water quickly is much more likely to trigger the need to urinate; whereas, drinking just one to two ounces at a time will help you retain this hydrating fluid longer.

If you are not sure if you are drinking enough water, check your urine. If it is darker than slightly yellow or colorless, you likely need to increase your water intake. Also remember that people living in hotter climates should increase their fluid intake even more, and those living in colder climes will need to pay closer attention to their water consumption, since they may not feel thirsty as often.


Your skin is often the main thing you hear connected with hydration, thanks to skin’s tendency to become dry, particularly in winter. You know whether or not your skin is hydrated just by looking at it – or feeling it if your skin cracks when dry. When properly hydrated, your skin will be smooth, plump and somewhat bouncy to the touch as opposed to tight, flaky and dull. You properly hydrate your skin by using the natural tips mentioned above with the additional product help of moisturizer. Not only do moisturizers help keep your skin hydrated and naturally radiant, they also cause your skin to age slower because time takes its toll on dry skin. As you get older, your skin becomes less effective at maintaining its own water balance, so it becomes more imperative that you give it a little help with your favorite moisturizing beauty products.


Your hair is another beauty aspect that has a lot of products dedicated to keeping it hydrated, such as shampoos specially formulated for hydration and hair conditioners. There is a very simple reason to keep hair hydrated: it looks healthier, which means prettier. A good way to keep your hair always healthy and hydrated is to periodically switch out your shampoo and conditioner. Hair gets used to one type if you use it all the time so switching it up will prompt your hair to soak up more of the benefits. Also remember that you should not wash your hair every day. Your hair has natural oils that help keep your strands hydrated, so it is best to not remove those on a daily basis with daily shampoos.

The bottom line is that it is just a good idea to make sure you are hydrated. Not only will it help keep your body in tiptop shape, but you will be more naturally beautiful too. Health in all areas is very important, so keep your skin, hair and body healthy and hydrated so you always look amazing.
