Water is an Essential Part of a Healthy Skin Care Routine


If you have been following our blog, you will know that we are going to spend the first month of spring talking about feeding your skin on the inside.

Water is imperative if you want your skin to have a smooth, healthy glow. Using all natural skincare products from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE is a good way to start, but if you are not nourishing your skin properly, you could be dehydrating your skin.


Your body needs water as it provides essential nutrients to your skin. Every day you lose large amounts of water through breathing, exercise, elimination, aging, high altitude and skin evaporation. If your water intake isn’t keeping up with your output, dehydration will set in.


When you drink water, it helps to balance the fluids in your body. Sixty percent of your body is composed of water. Absorption, digestion, nutrient transport, circulation and body temperature all need water in order to function properly. If your body is not getting enough fluids your brain triggers its thirst mechanism giving you clues that you are on the verge of dehydration.


Drinking water can also help you lose weight as it makes you feel full. Although it is not a magic bullet, water will help your daily calorie intake. Try to consumer water laden vegetables and fruit, beans and soups that are broth-based.


When you exercise, your body needs water to replace fluids that are lost when you sweat. It is vital that you maintain a balance of electrolytes and fluids in order to help with muscle fatigue.

Water provides a protective barrier for your skin helping to prevent fluid loss, but without a healthy skin care routine, hydrating with water will not make those fine lines and wrinkles disappear. The all-natural skin care line from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE will help your skin lock in the moisture.


Water helps your kidneys transport waste, cleansing your body of dangerous toxins as long as you provide it with enough water. When you drink water, your kidneys do not have to work as hard.

Water is an essential part of a healthy skin care routine and can improve the look and feel of your skin. Drink up and include the all-natural family skin care line from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE and you will be well on your way to younger looking skin.
