Best Foods to Keep your Skin Healthy During Cold New York Winter
Some experts are saying that eating your water this winter is just as important as drinking it.
And no. This article isn't about chewing ice.
It's about skincare.
According to Sozo Clinic, "Eating water-rich foods is important alongside drinking water because it offers a dual approach to hydration and overall health. While drinking water is essential for staying hydrated, consuming water-rich foods provides additional benefits. Foods with high water content, such as fruits and vegetables, contribute to hydration while also delivering essential nutrients like vitamins and antioxidants. This combination not only supports overall well-being but also helps maintain healthy skin, aids digestion, and promotes a feeling of fullness. "
