Water is literally essential to life. In fact, according to this infographic from iCliniq, the body is made up of 70 percent water. That’s a lot of water in the human body. That water does a lot for the body, including hydration and digestion.
Men need more water than women. Whenever you sweat you need to replenish the water in your system. Humans can only live for a couple days without water.
Celebrities Drink Water
You can be just like your favorite movie stars and drink water. Yes, there are stars out there that know the benefits of a healthy diet and quenching their thirst with water, instead of wine and beer.
Some of the more notable celebrities that drink substantial water include Beyonce, Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Elle MacPherson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Gabrielle Union, Paris Hilton, Cindy Crawford, Nicole Richie, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Julianne Moore, Pharrell Williams, and Angelina Jolie.
While it makes perfect sense that the models listed above would drink water, because they know the importance through their profession, it’s good to know that there are more in the celebrity world that understand how great water is for you.
Benefits of Drinking Water
One of the reasons why water is important to many models and movies stars, other than the fact you need it to live, is that it helps them have young and beautiful skin.
Drinking water actually works to make your skin soft and healthy from the inside out. It helps make skin cells more plump for a younger appearance. It hydrates from the inside out, so that your entire body benefits from each glass of water you drink.
On a hot day water is the only thing that will truly quench your thirst too. Drinking alcohol, even if that ice cold beer feels like it’s quenching you, only works to dehydrate you. One clue to whether you are dehydrated or not is your urine. If it’s clear, you have enough water in your system.
How To Add More Water To Your Diet
Drink a glass when you wake up. Even if you are having coffee, have a glass of water with it. If you go for a walk or a jog take a bottle of water with you and make sure you drink it. Have a glass or two with lunch, instead of soda or juice.
Basically, if you replace your other drinks of the day with water you’ll ensure you get the right amount. Think water is boring? Try buying flavored water or a flavoring for your water. Sometimes just a squirt of fresh lemon or lime is enough to give it a more crisp, enjoyable flavor.
Even if you don’t like water you need to drink it. You can get some water through the fruits and vegetables you eat each day, but you really need to drink some too!
