Drinking Water Is Great For You, But It Won't Really Help Your Skin?

"Drinking water is obviously a healthy practice and allows our bodies and minds to function at their highest level, but more water consumption doesn’t necessarily hydrate the skin," Marino told POPSUGAR.

The bottom line here: don’t stop drinking water, since it’s essential for your overall health, but don’t expect it to clear up your complexion if you’re not also taking a more proactive approach to caring for your skin.

It’s also important to remember that your skin is an external organ that’s constantly exposed to harsh elements (like pollution, heat, cold, etc. ), so even on days when you do drink proper amounts of water, your skin is actually the last organ that will benefit from it.

"A good hydrating serum will also act as a big drink of water for the skin; we need this topically because skin doesn’t create water, it only creates oil, and oil and water have two very different benefits for the skin".

In order for your skin to be properly hydrated, Marino says electrolytes need to be present in your body or else you wouldn’t be able to retain water.

"When it comes to skin hydration, using humectants to bind water to the skin are going to be best practice," Marino said.

"Topically hydrating is so important, but if you’re hydrating dead skin cells, you’re not getting full product penetration," Marino said.
