Hydrating Skin is Critical: Humans Are 60 Percent Water
April 21, 2022 | Archive
Hydrating skin is critical is because the human body is mostly water. The amount of water in the average human body is 60%. The percentage of water evolves according to hydration levels, age, and sex. The percentage of water in our bodies averages around 60%, but the percentage ranges from 45 to 75%. Babies have a high percentage of water, which decreases with age. In addition, fatty tissue contains less water than muscle, so the percentage of water can vary with body type. Water is necessary for health and bodily functions, including:
- Temperature regulation
- Cellular function
- Waste removal
More Reasons Water Is Important To Humans
Water is one of the elements that give cells their structure and keeps cells plump. Another benefit of water is that it helps cells make chemical reactions. Some of the organs in the human body have more water than others. For example, the brain and kidneys possess the highest percentage of water. These organs comprise 80 to 85% of water; the bones and teeth contain the lowest proportion.

Skin that is not hydrated will become dry, and dry skin is less resilient. Dry, dehydrated skin is also more likely to generate wrinkles and lines due to shrinkage of cells in the top layer of the skin. Hydrated skin looks healthier, smoother, and softer. It is more supple, plump, and resilient when your skin is well hydrated. One of the products that Physician Aesthetic Specialists recommends to support your skin’s ability to retain moisture is HA5® Rejuvenating Hydrator by SkinMedica.
