Your body on water
4 Reasons to Keep Sipping

1. Get a glowing complexion: Properly hydrated cells lead to more elastic skin, giving you that healthy glow.

2. Outsmart a cold: Drinking water keeps mucus moving. That's gross, but the sticky stuff snags bacteria when you inhale. If mucus is thin, it's easier to get that cold-causing junk out of your system.

3. Protect your joints: Fluid keeps the cartilage in your joints nice and squishy, helping it serve its shock- absorbing purpose during your next workout (or even your walk home).

4. Banish the bad stuff: The liver and kidneys, which filter waste from our bodies, need plenty of water to do their deep-cleaning work.
