We all know that it’s extremely necessary to drink ample amounts of water. It’s something we hear evidently every day, but choose to ignore most of the time. While most of us may claim that we drink enough water when we’re thirsty and so it should possibly be enough, the point is that this still won’t be sufficient for your entire body.

Every part of your body is made up of cells, that hold a large water content. Think of your cell as a balloon, when you fill the balloon with water, it stretches with no creases and becomes firm. That’ also what happens to your cells when you drink ample amounts of water.
Keeping that in mind, skin is the largest organ in your body, so imagine the number of cells it contains and how much water it would need in order to keep these cells rejuvenated.
