With fall officially in full swing, we are sure your skin has noticed the drier weather! As the days are getting shorter and colder, especially living in Reno, your skin looses moisture much faster. It is especially important to make sure you are drinking adequate amounts of water. Many of us have heard the “8 glasses per day” rule our whole lives, don’t realize water intake has many more factors that go into it. For instance, you water intake is very dependent on your weight and how active you are. The more you weigh, and the more you lead an active lifestyle, the more water you should be consuming per day. This calculator is a great tool to figure out the amount of water you specifically should be consuming per day. One great feature about this one in particular, is that it also takes into account environmental factors. Water consumption isn’t a stagnant thing- it is constantly changing day to day, as your lifestyle does. Once you are drinking the right amount of water for your body, you will notice not only does your skin feel more naturally hydrated, but your skin will look better, you will feel better, and by regularly flushing out toxins, you will feel much more healthy! So now that it’s fall, make sure you are beating the drier weather with a big glass of water!
