Drinking plenty of water or at-least 8 glasses of it helps your skin healthy and glowing. Our skin cells contain a high percentage of water and it need to properly function just like any other cell of our body. Water and other drinks which are also beneficial to the skin can be consumed to make our skin glow. These healthy drinks provide not only a certain amount of water, but also other nutrients that support the skin cells’ protective and repairing functions
1. Coconut Water
Swap your sports drink with coconut water.
Coconut water is a healthier option because it is naturally sweet and does not contain artificial sweeteners. Coconut water is the clear liquid found inside a young, green coconut which is usually about the size of a basketball. Coconut water is the greatest natural energy drink that serves many benefits. It is also a source of potassium, which most people are slightly deficient in due to the insufficient amount of fruit and vegetables in the their diet. It contains easily digested carbohydrate in the form of sugar and electrolytes. Not to be confused with high-fat coconut milk or oil, coconut water is a clear liquid in the fruit’s center that is tapped from young, green coconuts.
2. Green Tea
Limit your coffee intake and drink more green tea.
Green tea was originated in China, but its production has spread to many countries in Asia. It contains the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which helps burn fat and also maintain your metabolism rate high.
A 2007 study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition suggests that EGCG has the potential to increase fat oxidation, which highlights the anti-obesity effects of green tea.
Although green tea is one of the few teas with sufficient evidence supporting the medical claims, there are a few more teas that are recommended for improving the skin, such as, black tea, dandelion tea, and nettle tea and Green Tea Lemonade
3. Cold-Pressed Juices
Skip sugary fruit juices
Cold-pressed juice refers to juice that uses a hydraulic press to extract juice from fruit and vegetables, as opposed to other methods such as centrifugal or single auger.The process of high pressure processing (HPP) allows the juice to be stored for about 30 days.Without pasteurization.
Cold-pressed juices are an easy way to increase your intake of the nutrients that are in fruits and vegetables. What makes cold-pressed juice more beneficial than conventionally prepared fruit juice (aside from being free of added sugar) is that, without heating and over-processing the ingredients, more nutrients are left in the drink, such as vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. The nutritional value depends on the ingredients chosen, but most vegetables and fruits contain beneficial vitamins like vitamin C (which boosts collagen formation), and many other antioxidant-rich nutrients that support skin cells.
