Why water is key to great skin

We've all heard about the importance of drinking water, but what difference does it actually make?

So we all know that we cannot live without water, but it is about more than survival.

It can also hold the key to plumper, glowing and clear skin.

Here we guide you through how...

1. dried fruit anyone?

So assuming that even if you don't enjoy some dried apricots or raisins as a snack, you've no doubt seen them in the supermarket...

Well, without the water, they do look somewhat shrivelled. And this is like your skin cells. So first things first, if you're starting to see a few more lines appearing, up your water intake and watch your skin naturally plump out.

2. Hyaluronic Acid

It's a bit of a buzz word at the moment, and here's why.

Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body and helps to maintain moisture levels. Similar to collagen, the levels drop as we get older.

Just 1 gram of hyaluronic acid can hold up to six litres of water! Hence why it has become such a key ingredient in many skincare products.

However, hyaluronic acid itself needs water to make a difference. So do apply it topically, but then up your water intake to really notice a difference

3. Flush out the rubbish

Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language legible, readable and appealing when displayed. The arrangement of type involves selecting typefaces, point size, line length, line-spacing (leading), letter-spacing (tracking), and adjusting the space within letters pairs (kerning).
