Hydrate Your Skin From The Inside Out
The heat that's on in your house, car, and the low humidity of winter can dry your skin up.
Amping up your water intake can help your skin look and feel better.
Adding aloe juice to your water makes it more bio-available to your cells. This means the water you do drink with aloe it is more powerful for you then just drinking plain old water.
Aloe is a very water-dense plant. It’s packed with rich nutrients and antioxidants that help protect your skin. Research shows it can neutralize and repair your skin from the effects of UV damage, and help prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
It can be an acquired taste. When I first started adding aloe juice to my water I wasn’t so keen on the sharp taste.
By the third day I was used to the taste.
I get aloe juice, not aloe gel, by the gallon and keep it in the fridge. It’s also good for an upset stomach.
Start with a tablespoon in a 12 oz. glass of water.
Work your way up to 4 oz. in an 12 oz. glass of water.
It’s so hydrating for your skin. If you can’t stomach drinking it in plain water add a splash of cranberry or apple juice to the mixture.
If you're like me you have to be mindful of your water intake. I don't feel thirsty in the winter so I forget to get water in. I remind myself by setting an alarm on my phone to drink water at least every 1 1/2 hour.
