It has become the stuff of legend that drinking 8 glasses of water a day will hydrate our skin, solve acne problems, lighten dark circles, cure fine lines and oily skin, just to name a few. From supermodels to the celebs, and in the pages of our favorite magazines, they’re all preaching the same thing. But what is the science behind it? Does it even really work?

The skin is the largest organ in our body and acts as a protective barrier between our body and the environment. Therefore, it requires a little nutritional TLC. A healthy diet is an essential part of our skincare maintenance routine, and an unbalanced diet can cause visible problems.
Are you leading a hectic life full of late nights, early mornings, too much screen time, not enough sleep, and a questionable diet? These bad habits don’t just exhaust you mentally, but they can also wear you out physically and one of the first indications will be how tired your skin appears.
