Skincare and water: In or out?Too much or too little of anything can be a bad thing, and this certainly holds true for our essential friend, water. We're constantly told that we need to make sure we drink enough, yet striking a balance can be an elusive task unless you learn the rules of hydration.

Generally speaking, ladies should make sure plenty of water goes in their bodies but be careful about how much goes on the outside.

According to ELLE.com, it's important not to shower more than once a day, as the hot water can dry out your skin. To balance these unwanted effects, keep the bathing to a minimum and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.

Meanwhile, it's crucial to keep chugging the 8 glasses a day (or 64 ounces, according to the news source).

"While topically water can hinder your skin, drinking…water daily is essential for a healthy complexion because it flushes out toxins and keeps your insides running efficiently," ELLE reports. "Remember that fruits and veggies are also good sources of H20."
