The Water Weight Loss Cure

The Water Weight Loss Cure

Although beauty is largely a matter of inner radiance, physical treatments can help keep us feeling and looking our best. Water remedies can be quite effective in maintaining the figure and skin in particular.

Did you know that weight gain can be fought with a water remedy? That water regenerates the skin? Learn about water’s secrets for beauty, here:

Weight
Weight gain from overeating can cause unflattering changes to the figure, but it can be fought with a water remedy. By drinking generous amounts of water (more than a half-gallon (or 2 liters) a day, you can reduce the amount of food consumed and also eliminate false hunger pains.

Furthermore, good hydration of the tissues encourages enzymatic activity and therefore the burning of fat deposits.

To lose weight drink 2.5 to 3.5 liters a day, on the higher side the more you weigh and eat.

Skin
Water is an essential ingredient for skin regeneration. The skin of a 130-pound individual contains around 2 gallons of water, and the skin of a 160-pound individual contains almost 2.5 gallons of water. This water is retained by special molecules capable of holding in place a thousand times their weight of the skin and the loss of a fresh youthful appearance.

When the skin lacks water, it becomes dull, dry, and wrinkled and loses its elasticity, firmness, and color, and glands eliminate toxins poorly and become congested causing skin problems.

Hydrating skin properly by drinking enough prevents these assaults on the skin.

To maintain youthful skin, around 2.5 liters of water a day should be sufficient.
