I’m so excited that you’ve taken the first step to making your skin as healthy and glowing as possible. Thank you so much for joining the Skinny Chef community!

Before we begin, I’d like to tell you a little bit about the Skinny Chef mission.

After years of struggling with my weight, I knew I had to make some changes in my life by eating healthier foods and becoming more active. Much to my surprise, I found that I could live a healthier life without feeling deprived or resentful. And that’s why I want to share all of my hard-won secrets with you, so youy can celebrate this life much more fully.

Water, Water Everywhere

It’s no secret that water is a vital part of good nutrition. It’s also a vital component to keeping your skin healthy and clear.

When you drink water, it’s first absorbed by your internal organs and bowels. Your skin actually gets water last, and that’s why you need to drink the proper amount to keep your entire body hydrated.

One of the easiest steps that you can take on your journey to healthier skin is to add more water to your diet. Not only does water keep your skin healthy and glowing, but it has many functions in the body, including transporting water to the cells, moving toxic waste out, and is necessary for healthy kidney function.

Not getting enough water in your diet can have some serious implications for your health, and your waistline.

Oftentimes, when people feel hunger pains, what they’re actually feeling is thirst. If you’re getting hungry, try to have a large glass of water before you get something to eat. That might be enough to satisfy you before your next meal, and you’ll see a noticeable difference in your skin tone.

A simple change that you can make that will have a big impact is to replace all of the soda that you drink with water. That means no soda, sweetened tea, or sweetened coffee. None of those drinks give you the undeniable benefits that drinking plain, clean water will give you.

If that seems a little too difficult, then begin by replacing just one soda or sugary drink a day with water. Once you take that first step, gradually reducing the amount of soda that you drink each day, while increasing the amount of water you drink, will become easier.

You’ll feel better, and your skin will finally be getting the hydration that it craves. That means clear, clean, and healthy-looking skin, from head to toe.

If you’re not sure just how much water to drink each day, keep this calculation in mind:

Each day, aim to consume half your body weight in ounces of water. For instance, if you weigh 120 pounds, then your goal should be 60 ounces of the clear stuff every day. Calculating your specific consumption goal will help make it easier for you to feel hydrated and full throughout the day.

A great tip for getting more water in your diet is to carry around a big water bottle with you everywhere. You’ll have it right at hand whenever you need a drink, and you’ll be surprised at how quickly you reach your daily goal.
