Water and its health benefits

Water is the most precious gift of Nature and without water a living organ can’t stay. Two-third part of our body weight is water. The major portions of our body have taken adequate percentage of water, like- blood has 83% of water, muscles have 75% and brain has 74% of water. Also our bones have 22% of water.

Lack of water in our body is responsible for creating dehydration. Brain becomes less active and our body feels tired and fatigue. Also water is very much responsible for making active our digestive system and flushing out the waste products from our body.

Water is also essential for supple and radiant skin. Water supplies hydration that our skin and hair crave. As it helps our internal organs to function properly so it affects our skin health and beauty.

Following are some helpful home remedies for skin where water plays an important role-

1. Squeeze lemon juice in a bowl of iced water. Splash this over the face, massage for five minutes and then wash off with water. This therapy is very useful for oily skin.

2. Mix half teaspoon of lime juice with one teaspoon of cucumber juice and a few drops of rose water. Apply on the face and neck and leave on for 15 minutes. Remove with water. This therapy is quite helpful for improving dull and greasy complexion.
