Although proper hydration is important for your overall health, it's not clear whether drinking extra water affects skin hydration in healthy people: Skin is made up of three layers — the outer layer (epidermis), the underlying skin (dermis) and the subcutaneous tissue.

How to treat dry cracks on skin. Does drinking water hydrate the skin or is it myth and does showering daily really dehydrate skin?

Can protein powders such as optimum nutrition 100% whey protein cause hair loss or thinning if consuming? Thanks
Of course: Protein shakes are an unnecessary modern invention. Humans have been gaining muscle for thousands of years, with no protein shakes. A balanced healthy diet of natural foods is good enough for gaining muscle. If one wants to throw a meal into a blender to turn it into a shake, that's fine to do... but buying powders and supplements to make shakes will just use up hard-earned dollars. ...Read more
