Water Myths Busted!

Water is the easiest way to keep yourself hydrated. It is true that you should strive to keep your organs well lubricated throughout the day; however, the estimate of how much water we should drink, as in how many glasses, is a myth! Some say 8 glasses, and others say 12. The truth is, we can’t really put a number on it. The Institute of Medicine simply recommends your intake be generous and plentiful!

Drinking water cannot actually keep your skin hydrated. Well, okay, it’s a little true. Drinking water helps keep you hydrated. Therefore, it keeps all of your organs (including your skin) healthy and moisturized. However, drinking water isn’t enough to keep your skin from getting dry. You should pair generous water consumption with moisturizers and lip balm!

Think water bottles will ruin your teeth? That is not true! Tooth decay is not a direct result of using a water bottle. Water that has not been filtered, however, is more likely to be harsh on your teeth, especially if you are already prone to decay. If you are concerned about your teeth, consult with your physician to figure out the best options for maintaining your dental health while simultaneously staying hydrated!
