Water and life
Today I will try not to beat around the bush and explain in simple words why water is as important to life as they say it is. The philosopher Tales of Miletus (otherwise best known as the terror of successive generations of students not fond of mathematics) has already said that water is “the beginning of all things”.
Without water, life not only has no chance to develop, but also to last. As I mentioned in my previous post, we are made up of 70% water. Water fills a significant portion of each of our cells. It is due to water that all reactions take place at the cellular level. In addition, water is necessary for processes on the scale of the whole organism such as digestion, circulation or excretion.
Water and beauty
Needless to say, water also serves beauty. What determines our attractiveness and influence is a shapely slim figure and smooth firm skin. And it is water that is the “specialist” in moisturizing and cleansing. It is like a moisturizer that works from the inside out. This is how as much as 90% of the total hydration of the skin takes place. Even the best cosmetics can only slow the evaporation of water from the skin, but they cannot hydrate the skin from the inside. Moisturizing the skin makes it tighter and firmer. It also makes it age slower (!). In addition, water aids weight loss in two ways. First, it facilitates digestion. Secondly, it cleanses the body of toxins (which incidentally also affects the appearance of the skin). My wife Monika will talk a lot more about the relationship between water and beauty in one of her guest posts.
If water, what kind of water? CLEAN! That means: chemically neutral, microbiologically pure, free from harmful components. To simply put, it is the closest thing we have to water in our bodies. Where to find it? Read other articles in my blog!
