If you want to achieve a good state of health and keep your skin healthy it is necessary that you drink, at least, between two and two and a half liters of liquid each day. In this way you will prevent the loss of moisture from turning your skin rough and off, and present signs of dehydration, such as the premature appearance of wrinkles, irritation and tightness.
What hydrates in a drink is its water content and, as Rosa María Ortega, professor of the Nutrition department of the Faculty of Pharmacy of the Complutense University of Madrid, and member of the Observatory of Hydration and Health (OHS), highlights the water and other beverages such as soft drinks, dairy products, infusions, juices ... contribute to maintaining the healthy appearance of the skin, which, when properly hydrated, is more elastic and its protection capacity is greater, so it becomes more resistant to any external aggression.
Ortega warns, however, that when we do not drink the necessary the functioning of the organism is altered and our skin is more exposed and unprotected.
