Want Glowing Skin? EAT YOUR WATER

Eat water? Yes, you read that right! How many litres of water do you drink daily? That standard amount is 4 bottles which is 4 litres minimum to keep your body hydrated and all the skin and digestive problems at bay.  Not all can drink so much water, so you can have more water-based foods instead. There are a lot of veggies and fruits that contain good amount of water which is hydrating for your body. Include the below foods in your diet along with drinking water:
Iceberg lettuce ranks the top in hydrating veggies, rather hydrating foods, thanks to its 96% water content. Though, the sad part is that it is not rich in nutrition, but you should have it because it is high in water content and loaded with fibre.  It goes very well with chicken- in burgers, salads etc. and also with other veggies.
Cucumbers contain 96% water, are rich in fibre and minerals and are cool. They make a great treat during summer and however you have it, slice or dice it and have it alone, they will take away your thirst. Add them in your salads or have them with salt, they taste great.
The reason why watermelon ranks the top in the water-filled fruits is because it contains 92% water and the rest is fibre, minerals and nutrients. Aptly named, it can keep your thirst at bay even during the hottest summer days. Have them chopped with little salt or add in your desserts, salads etc.
Spinach is rich in lutein, potassium, fiber, and brain-boosting folate, and just one cup of leaves contains 15% of your daily intake of vitamin E, which is an important antioxidant.

Regular intake can boost your immune system, improve your skin, promote heart health, reduce cholesterol levels and fight certain cancers. Have them raw or use them as oatmeal toppings or in salads and cakes.
Strawberries are loved by many! They too are rich in water content and won’t be tough to consume because of their delicious looks and sweetness (provided you don’t grab the sour ones). They are great in smoothies, cakes, oatmeal toppings etc. making desserts using them is very popular.
  1. APPLES (84% WATER)
Apples are a nutritional powerhouse containing important nutrients, such as vitamins C and B-complex (riboflavin, thiamine and vitamin B6), dietary fibre, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and several phytonutrients. This fruit boosts the immune system, improves digestion, promotes heart health, makes skin healthy and improves vision. Since apples are rich in water and other vitamins and nutrients too, they make a great energy booster.
  1. CELERY (95% WATER)
Celery contains 95% water and is cancer fighting. Feeling thirsty? Grab celery and add some peanut butter on it or use peanut butter or almond butter as dip and eat it! Celery is also good for pancreas.
Grapefruit not only contains 91% water but also contains important electrolytes that help prevent dehydration. It is high in soluble fibre and vitamin C, and contains smaller amounts of vitamins A, B-complex, E and K. Regular intake of grapefruit can lower your insulin level, help control your appetite, protect against the common cold, aid in weight loss, make your skin beautiful and lots more.
