Drinking at least two liters of water a day makes you pretty. If you do not believe me, here is one of various posts with before and after photos of convinced women. Most of them recommend drinking three liters of water a day. Good luck with the multiple walks to the kitchen and, promptly, to the bathroom. Español aquí.

With all that’s recently happened plus the United Nations World Water Day this week, I am convinced that water is life. We couldn’t survive without it, at least not after seven days without it as I’ve read on Wikipedia. With that in mind, here are five reasons to tote your water bottle around the office. I hope you like!

1. Makes you pretty
Our skin contains many liquids and drinking water prevents it from drying out and wrinkling in an abnormal way. The kidneys intervene so that we do not take more water than necessary but can reinforce the hydration of your skin with creams.

2. Takes care of your muscles
The lack of fluid and electrolytes causes the cells to be reduced and the muscles to become tired. Experts recommend drinking water when you do exercises to replenish fluids lost while sweating.

3. Keeps you healthy
Our body is made up of 60% water, which we use for different bodily functions such as digestion, circulation, and regulation of our temperature, among others. Drinking water replenishes this liquid and keeps us healthy.

4. Helps your kidneys
Our body fluids are like a drainage system that carries what our cells do not serve to a pair of treatment plants known as kidneys. Our kidneys need to have an adequate level of liquid to process what our body does not need.

5. Avoids constipation
Not drinking enough water causes the colon to remove fluid from the stools to hydrate and cause constipation. Drinking water makes everything flow and you avoid those problems.
