New You Beauty Tip: Stay hydrated for smoother, younger looking skin.

H20 is important not only for the overall function of the body, but also for maintaining skin’s moisture and delivering nutrients to the skin’s cells.  After a long night’s sleep, the body becomes dehydrated and contains a higher level of toxins. When the skin lacks an adequate amount of water, the toxins spread, causing dryness, flakiness and ultimately wrinkles. With proper hydration, a consistent supply of oxygen is delivered to the cells, aiding in regeneration, and the formation of collagen and elastin (two constant characteristics of younger looking skin). So before you reach for your morning cup of Joe which leads to further dehydration, drink an 8oz glass of water first.
