We’re all prone to breakouts every
now and again, but do you find you’re constantly battling with acne flair ups?
Sick of trying every spot cream in the pharmacy? Most of us have been there,
and it can be extremely frustrating. It can affect both your self-confidence,
and your everyday life. Putting yourself in a social situation can cause
anxiety when you’re feeling self-conscious and want to just hide away!
This time of the year, our skin
tends to suffer in general due to the cold temperatures and harsh winds. You’ll
probably find that your face begins to flake and dry patches appear which can
cause a makeup nightmare! Dry skin plus foundation does not equal smooth
coverage after all. So how can you banish the zits and clear up the dryness? Of
course, you can invest in an exfoliator and quality moisturiser, these will
help to pick up the pieces but in order to prevent flair ups and flakes, there’s
one simple answer. Water.
Yes that clear stuff that runs from
the tap and costs you nothing (well, apart from the water bill) can actually be
the miracle cure for bad skin. You’ve probably heard it before, drink your
eight glasses a day for better concentration and overall body performance. You
may not have thought of water as your miracle skin cure, but celebrities such
as Jennifer Aniston swear by it, and let’s face it we all wouldn’t mind looking
like Jen An at 47. So what’s the big deal? If you think about it, 64 percent of
our skin is water! We need
water even in winter, to ensure our bodies keep ticking over nicely, you
find yourself less thirsty than you are in summer but it’s still just as
Water is pretty good at defending
your skin from possible breakouts as it has the ability to reduce the
concentration of oil on your skin. This can prevent clogged pores resulting in
acne breakouts and blemishes. As well as avoiding any unwanted spots, water
also benefits skin in other ways! It can reduce fine lines and wrinkles by plumping
up the skin with full hydration meaning your complexion will look fresher and
healthier. When skin is hydrated, it’s less likely to crack and let in dirt and
grease which can cause irritation.
Now that’s definitely work upping
your water intake for! Try and aim for eight glasses a day, and if you’re
struggling there are other ways in which you can work water into your diet! Try
eating foods with a high water content such as watermelon, grapes, strawberries
and cucumber. You can also download apps that will give you a nudge when it’s
time to head to the watercooler for another glass. So the next time you pick up
that expensive pot of moisturiser, think about your water intake too.
