You may be wondering how much water you need to drink each day to keep your face looking fresh and your skin looking youthful and radiant?
According to one of Britain’s leading nutritionists, Jane Clarke, 2.5 litres is optimum. As well as water though, research now shows that tea and coffee can count toward your total amount, but be aware that the caffeine in coffee and tannins in tea can respectively affect the calcium and iron absorption into our bodies.
With that in mind, your best bet is to stick with plain water which, according to Clarke has, “virtually no additives and [is] the healthiest drink there is.” Interestingly, she advocates drinking tap water over bottled varieties because our tap water production plants go through tighter regulations than some bottled water plants do. This is great news for us as it means the ultimate weapon in our armoury against ageing is essentially free and on tap – literally!
