Sunscreen the Key to Glowing Skin, Not Water

For years women, including myself, have lived by the mantra – eight glasses of water a day will lead to a glowing, youthful complexion. But now researchers in the UK say nah-uh, according to the Daily Mail.

Researcher Heather Yuregir said: “Drinking water for the sake of drinking water really has no effect on improving the appearance of skin,” a claim backed by the British Nutrition Foundation who say there is currently “very little scientific evidence” that supports the eight-glasses-a-day theory.

But diet and sun exposure can affect the appearance of the skin, so slather on the SPF and stock up on fruit and veg that’s full of vitamins A, B, C and E – all of which “help keep the skin elastic, protect it from age-related damage and help with the growth of new skin.”
