1. DRINK WATER

Water is by far the best drink for helping to keep your body healthy. It helps carry oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells and dissolves nutrients from food to make them accessible to the body and to your skin.

2. DRINK GREEN TEA

Green tea is packed with antioxidants, which fight to prevent damage to your body’s cells and help keep you healthy.

3. AVOID ALCOHOL

Alcohol acts as a diuretic, meaning it causes your body to create more urine. Frequent trips to the bathroom mean you can lose fluid more quickly than normal, which may lead to dehydration. Drink plenty of water when you’re drinking alcohol to help replace any lost fluids.

4. AVOID TOO MUCH CAFFEINE

While you can count tea and coffee among your water intake, try not to drink more than three or four cups a day. If you drink caffeine to excess, it can have a diuretic effect, which can lead to dehydration.

Now you know what to drink and what to avoid, you can help keep your skin looking and feeling healthy.
