Water - How Drinking it Can Translate to Skin Benefits?

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS

Water - How Drinking it Can Translate to Skin Benefits?

The skin is an organ and just like all the other organs in your body, it is made up of cells. Since the cells are made up of water, the cells in your skin also need water to function properly. Lack of hydration can cause skin issues such as dry, tight skin which might lead to flaking. Because of constant perspiration, your body loses the vital minerals and salts, the reason why your body needs daily replenishing.

What happens to the skin if you do not drink sufficient water in a day?

Dry skin also has lesser resilience as compared to hydrated or oily skin, which makes it more prone to wrinkling and fine lines. The skin is made up of three layers

  • The outermost layer, which is known as the ‘epidermis’

  • The layer beneath it is called the ‘dermis’

  • The subcutaneous tissue

Usually, water loss takes place from the epidermal layer of the skin due to sweating, however, if the cells in the underlying layers are not hydrated enough, the epidermis begins to start feeling rough and loses its elasticity which can lead to degradation of its texture.

Sufficient water intake and skin - the connect

Drinking water also flushes out the dangerous toxins from within your body and your skin, which allows your skin to breathe normally again. With the normal function restored in the skin, the cells do not feel trapped or inadequate, which means they can continue with their normal functions. This helps delay skin aging by adding shine to your skin.

You should be aiming to drink 8 -10 glasses of water each day because a lesser amount can cause dehydration. Dehydration may trick the oil glands in your body into believing that they need to produce more oil which leads to an excess production of oil, thus, increasing the chance of acne.

Also, when your skin is hydrated from inside, it looks plumper and more radiant and can hide signs of aging. However, when witnessed at a histopathological level [when examined under a microscope], the signs of aging are still present but because your skin is hydrated and looks younger, these signs are invisible to the naked eye.

Day by day my neck is becoming blackish because it's short. What will I have to do so that it gets elongated and more brighter?

Day by day my neck is becoming blackish because it's short. What will I have to do so that it gets elongated and more...
Neck may get dark complexion if melanin pigmentation of that area is increased or sometimes when the dead cells of skin on that area are not being removed naturally. * you are advised to destress yourself & wear loose collar shirt which do not compress the blood supply around the neck. Try to avoid sunrays & dust falling on your neck. * mix 1 teaspoon of mustard oil in 3 big spoon of gram flour (besan) & add 1 big spoon of oat flour in it. Make paste of it by adding sufficient quantity of water in it. Apply it on your neck for 10-15 minute. Remove it slowly without washing. This will naturally remove the dead cell of neck which give you a good looking neck area after few application.

This looks to be skin hypersensitivity reaction due to trauma. You may try local application of ice cold salt water solution for 10 minutes after waxing and then apply calamine lotion. This you may continue for 48 hours. In addition you may take tab. Device 5 mg once in the night for 2-3 days only. There are other means like steroid cream. But I shall discourage you at the moment and would suggest medications which are safe. Steroid like 1% hydrocortisone cream may be considered if nothing works.

Pimples or acne vulgaris have a tendency to leave behind marks and blemishes, especially if scratched or manipulated. Kindly avoid touching them. Good face washes containing glycolic acid usually help in getting rid of the pigment. Kindly use a good sunscreen which is gel based and with adequate spf value. For further specific help and guidance kindly consult.

-keep your face dry. -do not apply moisturiser if the face does not feel dry. -use fresh neem and turmeric paste as face pack daily. - if your pimple is large, with fluid, put white toothpaste on it overnight. -on the rest, put anti acne cream (small amount) in the night before sleeping.

You should sleep properly in a silent dark room in the day. Have healthy home cooked meals. Don't take any packed items as they are laden with preservatives, not even biscuits or bread.

I have white marks my body for 4 years. What should I do.

BHMS
Homeopath,
I have white marks my body for 4 years. What should I do.
Hello. White patches/ dots on your skin are a common type of depigmented skin lesion associated with an infection, allergy, or autoimmune disorder. One common cause of white spots, or hypopigmentation, is a fungal infection of the skin known as tinea versicolor (associated with other symptoms, such as itching or dryness on or around the white patches). This fungal infection is not contagious and can be treated easily with over-the-counter medications. The white spots and patches can also be becuase of deiciency of vitamin D (for which 15-20 minutes of exposure to early morning sunlight without sunscreen is needed, 3-4times a week). Or else they could be idiopathic (i.e., without any cause). Please tell me other symptoms like about sensation on the area, since how long do you have this patch, any family history of white patch, etc. Meantime, you can start with homoeopathic Rx - Cina 1M/ one dose daily at night and Ars. Sulph. Flavum. 200/ twice daily for 20days (as it is safe).
