19. Sleep + Water = Major Glow
When it comes to your beauty routine, sleep may be the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth. Your body repairs itself and recovers while you snooze, and that leads to a long list of benefits for your looks. The key is to get enough shut-eye -- 7 to 9 quality hours each night.
If you're getting fewer than 6 hours, it's likely affecting your appearance, says Michael Breus, PhD, a board-certified sleep specialist. Start getting 1 to 3 more hours of Zzz's, and you could see some improvement in as little as a day. Keep it up, and "within 2 to 3 weeks, people will notice that you're sleeping better by the way you look," Breus says.
Do you drink enough water per day? Or, have you been drinking way more than required?
The adult human body is 60% water and your blood is 90% water. Drinking water benefits the whole body in a million ways. From flushing out toxins to preventing acne and giving you glowing skin, water is a miracle drink!
