Our body makes up about 60 percent of the water and we are all aware that without it we will not have life. But often due to obligations or ignorance, we forget to drink the amount we need to stay healthy and keep our skin and hair fresh. Nutritionists emphasize the minimal amount.
Water is the key to a good metabolism, shiny hair, and healthy skin. If you’re not sure if you’re drinking enough water – you can recognize it in your body, here’s how.
Water cannot replace anything, you can eventually drink tea or lemonade. The average person needs 2 to 2.5 liters (67-84 fl oz) of water a day. The amount increases if we are engaged in physical activity that causes sweating and increased breathing.
The first thing to do is to drink a glass of water in the morning after waking, because at night, through breathing and normal dehydration, we lose fluid.
If your skin is dry and your tongue has changed color, you must drink more fluid.
To control how much you drink throughout the day, measure it because it is the only way to be safe. You need to drink water daily for metabolism to work well.
So it’s not a myth – two liters of water a day is the minimum. Now you know why.
