Approximately 60% of our bodies are made up of water, we need water in all aspects of our lives, so how can drinking more water benefit us in the beauty department? There are many benefits to increasing your water intake, I have gather 5 amazing beauty related benefits.

As part of my fitness regimen I have always drank a lot of water through the day to replenish what I have lost through exercise and for its overall benefits. I’m so used to drinking a lot of water, I feel weird when I don’t, I love water.
Don’t like the taste of water? Infuse your water with fruit such as oranges, strawberries, blueberries. Adding lemon or mint to your water also can help make it tasty.
