Can Drinking From a Stanley Help You Look Younger?

At Binhlam Aesthetics, our medical aesthetician in Nashville is here to help you have the best skin possible.  From hydrating skincare treatments to tips for wellness, she can help you to look and feel your best.  One of the best ways to take care of your skin is to focus on hydration.  Let’s learn more about why it’s important and tips to keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

Why Staying Hydrated Matters to Your Skin

Our skin is the largest organ of the body and is made up of over 60% water.  This water is responsible for plumping skin cells, giving it a youthful, bouncy appearance.  When you’re dehydrated, those cells shrink which can cause your skin to look dull, flaky, and accentuate wrinkles.

How Much Water Do You Need?

The “eight glasses a day” rule is a good starting point, but individual needs vary. Another metric to follow is to aim for half your body weight in ounces of water daily. So, for someone weighing 150 lbs, that’s around 75 oz of water.  You may need more if you workout or sweat.

Tips to Stay Hydrated

It may seems like drinking enough water should be easy, but it can be a big challenge for a lot of people.  And you likely should be drinking more water than you realize.

  • Carry a reusable water bottle: Keep it by your side and sip throughout the day.  (No, it doesn’t have to be a Stanley.)
  • Infuse your water: Add slices of cucumber, lemon, or berries to enhance the flavor.
  • Set reminders: Download a hydration app or use phone alarms as prompts to drink.
  • Eat water-rich foods: Not all your hydration has to come from a glass of water.  Fruits and vegetables like watermelon, cucumber, and leafy greens can help with your daily water intake.

Boost Your Skin’s Hydration with a Medical Aesthetician in Nashville

While drinking water is essential to your skin’s health, making an appointment with a medical aesthetician in Nashville can provide you with advanced treatments to boost your skin’s hydration.

The most popular hydrating med spa treatment is a HydraFacial.  This advanced facial uses a specialized device to cleanse, exfoliate, extract impurities, and infuse the skin with hydrating serums. It leaves your skin plump, refreshed, and glowing.
