Skin that “glows” comes from more than just the right highlighter. It is skin that is HYDRATED.
Many people think they can keep hydrated by simply drinking eight glasses of water a day. But consider this: when you drink water, it goes through your digestive system first, gets absorbed into the bloodstream and is then filtered by the kidneys. Only after all this does it hydrate cells. By all means, do drink water – your skin and your body can’t live without it – but there are other methods you should know about —
GET FRESH — HYDRATE your skin by eating foods high in water.
Starting at the top, here are the foods with the HIGEST WATER CONTENT:
Cucumber— Water content: 96.7%
Iceberg Lettuce –- 95.6
True, it doesn’t have the fiber and nutrients of the darker greens, like spinach, romaine and kale. But because of its high water content – the highest of all the greens – be sure to mix crispy iceberg into your salads. It also makes a refreshing snack all by itself with ZERO calories.
Like all foods that are high in water, celery has very few calories – just 6 calories per stalk – so it’s a perfect remedy for hunger pangs. And it contains fiber plus folate and vitamins A, C and K. Good to know: due in part to its high water content, celery neutralizes stomach acid, so it helps digestion. It’s even recommended as a natural remedy for heartburn and acid reflex.
Look at all these other tasty foods that are high in water:
Radishes – 95.3%
Tomatoes – 94.5%
Green peppers – 93.9%
Cauliflower – 92.1%
Watermelon – 91.5% water
Spinach – 91.4% water
Strawberries – 91.0%
Broccoli – 90.7%
Grapefruit – 90.5%
Baby carrots – 90.4%
(Regular carrots have 88.3)
Cantaloupe – 90.2%
