You may already know that drinking Louisville pure tap® throughout the day is an essential part of overall wellness, helping to keep your body healthy and hydrated. Proper hydration can help with headaches, fatigue, weight loss and keeping your immune system strong. But you might be surprised to learn that water plays an important role in keeping your skin healthy and supple, too.

Skin is the largest organ in the body, and just like other organs, it requires adequate hydration to perform at its best. “Adequate water intake helps to ensure that optimal blood flow reaches the skin to help deliver necessary nutrients and remove toxins,” stated Dr. Clint Tucker of Advanced Dermatology & Dermaesthetics of Louisville. “Proper hydration can increase blood flow to the capillaries and small blood vessels of the face, which may also impact the clearance of inflammatory markers that play a role in conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema.”

Dr. Tucker does go on to make an important note, though—increasing water intake alone is not an advised treatment for a diagnosed dermatological condition. Always check with your doctor if you have concerns about your skin’s health. But while scientific data surrounding the impact of increased hydration on the skin is still limited, many people do report firmer, more supple, and blemish-free skin following a regiment of increased daily water intake. Drinking water has even developed an almost cult following among beauty enthusiasts and celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Gabrielle Union, and Wynonna Ryder, who attribute their radiant glow to staying well hydrated.

While drinking water may not turn back the hands of time, it can help keep your body healthy inside and out. And at nearly 75 glasses per penny, it’s easy and affordable to add great tasting pure tap to your beauty routine!
