Why Tweens Should Drink More Water!

Why Tweens Should Drink More Water!

Drinking enough water everyday is the key to healthy, smooth skin! While taking care of skin with a face wash, moisturiser and sunscreen is super important, lifestyle factors such as drinking enough water each day can also have a great impact.

Children and tweens should be drinking lots of water and minimising their consumption of other beverages such as soft drinks and sugar laden fruit juices as much as possible. Most experts agree that 5-7 glasses a day is best!

Amazing skin benefits!

So why is this clear liquid so powerful? The human body is made up of 50-75% of water! If tweens don't drink enough water, their body - and their skin - cannot function at its best. 

Water not only helps hydrate skin, but can clear away toxins and fill in pores. Young skin is particularly susceptible to damage from the environment. During the cooler months, young skin can become dry, leading to flaking, itchiness and sometimes even bleeding. Using a hydrating moisturiser and drinking an adequate amount of water each day can prevent dryness and irritation. 

What else does drinking water do?

Water has several other amazing effects on the body - both inside and out! Here are some other surprising benefits of drinking enough water daily: 

  • Speed up metabolism which raises energy levels
  • Improves brain function, improving concentration and focus at school
  • Flushes out toxins
  • Improves digestion 
  • Boosts the immune system, keeping colds and flus away
  • Can get rid of headaches
  • Promotes healthy heart function 
  • Improves the health and appearance of hair
  • Prevents stomach cramps and pains

So grab a bottle or glass of water and improve your skin and body function!
