Skin Tip of the Week: Drink More Water

Did you know that 50 to 60 per cent of our total body weight is water? Water is our life force. Common complaints like headaches, lack of energy, tired and lethargic sensations, injuries, hot flashes and achy joints and muscles have seen to be associated with dehydration. If most women would commit to drinking eight glasses of water every day they would notice a great improvement in their overall health and energy.

Think of it this way: Every tissue, cell, organ and system is composed of water and functions optimally only in the presence of adequate water levels. Degeneration associated with aging will occur at a quicker rate if you are dehydrated. And you can't use thirst to help you determine when you should be drinking water, because as you age your thirst mechanism does not function as well as it should.
