We know you’ve heard it before, but it bears repeating: water is the ultimate beauty secret. Given that our bodies are more than 50% water, it makes sense that it can do wonders for our appearance, too. Below, 8 ways drinking water can make you prettier. Scroll!

1. IT GETS RID OF ACNE
Having acne not only affects your appearance, but also your confidence. Drinking enough water can flush out toxins from the body and balance your pH levels. The result: a photoshoot-ready face.

2. IT BRIGHTENS YOUR COMPLEXION
Every beauty girl seems to be after the celebrity glow. But who needs highlighter when you can achieve a permanent, natural glow with water? Water promotes the formation of new blood cells and helps remove the dead skin cells that give you a duller appearance.

3. IT STRENGTHENS YOUR NAILS
Are your nails breaking, peeling, or cracking? This could mean that you lack moisture in your body. Aside from proper water intake, soaking your nails in water for five minutes a day should help strengthen them. Now you’re ready to book your next mani/pedi!

4. IT EASES UP EYE BAGS
Dehydration often hinders adequate blood flow, resulting in puffy eyes and dark circles. Adequate water intake and splashing cold water on your face should get rid of that I-stayed-up-way-too-late look.
5. IT FIGHTS SIGNS OF AGING
Jennifer Anniston, Beyonce, and Jennifer Lopez all don’t look a day over thirty. What’s their secret? The three superstars swear by drinking lots of water. When you have dry skin, your cells shrivel up and make your wrinkles more prominent. So drink up!

6. IT REDUCES HAIR FALL
It’s not a commonly known fact, but each hair shaft is actually made up of 25% water. This means that not enough water intake can cause your hair to become weak. Special shampoos may help, but water is the true secret to commercial-worthy locks.

7. IT COMBATS PSORIASIS AND ECZEMA
Living with skin conditions like Psoriasis and Eczema can be very difficult. But certain lifestyle changes can help people with it cope. Taking warm baths and keeping yourself hydrated are great weapons against itchiness and irritated skin.

8. IT TREATS CHAPPED LIPS
Especially in the colder months, our lips are very prone to cracking and bleeding. Chapped lips don’t only look bad, they can cause a great deal of pain, too. To keep your puckers moisturized, use some lip balm and drink a healthy amount of water.
