There are multiple theories about the creation of life and specifically about the creation of planet earth, from theological and scientific, but in all these theories there is a common point and it is the need for an essential material for life – water. It could be said that everything that conserves life has a water component. Human beings have an average percentage of water, according to the thesis of Arias (2019) to opt for the degree in human nutrition from the Universidad Peruana Unión, there are different formulas to calculate the amount of water that each human being contains. The study carried out had a total of 150 people participate. The study found that the percentage of water on average is 60% in adult men and between 50 and 55% in women. It was also noted that as human beings the sensation of thirst diminishes.
Water in the human body is not distributed equally in all the body’s organs, some of them contain a higher percentage of water than others, and for the topic that we want to address in our blog, which is the skin, it can be indicated that it is composed of 72% of water on average. The American Cancer Society (2019) indicates that it is very true that we should drink approximately 8 glasses of water a day and that water consumption depends on each human being, the place where they live, how much exercise they do, and the diet they eat. consume daily.
Among some of the benefits of drinking water on the skin include acting as a natural firming agent, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines, reducing anxiety and helping us sleep better. However; here are also dangers when consuming a lot of water due to the excess affect on the kidneys. This happens when the amount of water consumed and more than is lost, this is known as hyponatremia.
To complete these recommendations it is necessary that in addition to using the SilverFox products in our online store we consume at least 8 glasses of water a day.
Have a happy and hydrated day – your skin and your body will thank you.
