Drink water psoriasis sufferers!

You may think that this recommendation is overrated, but our bodies are composed of approximately 60-65% water. Why are many health professionals are continually recommending to drink water?

Throughout our daily activities, we drain enough fluid from our bodies via urination, sweating, defecation, and breathing. We must recharge and replenish ourselves with clean, fresh water to keep our organs functioning correctly; the most significant organ we have is our skin. 

Sometimes we forget that the skin in the first fighting against foreign invaders that can harm our health. Drinking water helps maintain our bodies adequately hydrated, increases the bodies natural ability of detoxification and keeps our skin plump and healthy. 

Room temperature water vs. cold water?

Opt for drinking room temperature water or warm water to increase hydration and promote detoxification. It may feel weird at first drinking warm water because we have always had the conception that iced cold water is what should consume. But think about this your body needs to heat up the water to core temperature to absorb its minerals and provide expenditure. Why you drink warm water, it is ready for the body consumption. 

How does hydration effect psoriasis?

Maintaining your body hydrated can reverse dry, brittle skin, keep the skin moisturized and decrease flare-ups for psoriasis and any other skin condition. Not only that water helps with the skin, but the endocrine system secretes an adequate amount of hormones like histamine and cortisol which correlate how your immune system and stress levels react to foreign invaders.
