Even one extra glass of water in your daily intake can make a huge difference. Besides, thirst is often mistaken with hunger causing overeating and weight gain.

5. Lower your alcohol intake

Alcohol drinks not only contain a lot of aging sugar but also cause dehydration, impair your liver function and depletes many important for skin nutrients such as vitamin C or group B vitamins.
