Keeping it Moist

One of the quickest ways to improving your health, both inside and out, is to drink enough fluids every day It sounds so simple: One molecule of water has two hydrogen atoms bonded to a single oxygen atom. Yet, water is among the most powerful forces in human health and vitality. Our bodies’ main chemical component, water is about 60 to 70 percent of our body weight. Nutrition guru Mitzi Dulan, RD, CSSD, says that water is vital for keeping all the natural systems of detox and hydration optimal. It flushes out toxins, transports nutrients to cells and provides the moisture our tissues need to thrive.

Maintaining the water, or hydration, needed to make up for the water we lose daily with breath, perspiration, urine and bowel movements is especially important for the body’s largest organ: the skin. Optimal daily hydration not only helps skin glow but rejuvenates it, according to Dulan. This is because water plays vital roles in maintaining skin functions, such as removal of metabolic toxins, delivery of nutrients and formation of a protective barrier, according to Dr. Anna L. Chien, MD, assistant professor and co-director of the Cutaneous Translational Research Program in the Department of Dermatology, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, Md.
