It Keeps You HydratedDehydrated skin looks dull and lifeless. Several factors like pollution, dirt, grime, smoke and heat take a toll on your skin, severely dehydrating it. Like the rest of your organs, your skin is made up of cells, which are mostly composed of water. Since your skin is the largest organ of your body, it requires the most water, getting dehydrated if you do not drink enough.
It Keeps Your Skin YoungIf your skin is dry and flaky, you are much more likely to get wrinkles than if your skin is well hydrated, supple and smooth. To avoid ageing early, start incorporating plenty of water into your daily routine. Your skin will appear tight and toned, since your body will fill your skin cells with plenty of water, making them firm and rigid rather than saggy and loose. To get a better idea, picture a water balloon that is full of water and a water balloon that is only half full.

It Keeps Your Hair GlossyDrinking plenty of water will hydrate your hair as well, making it softer and silkier. People with frizzy hair especially will be benefitted by this, since water will help smooth your hair far better than any anti-frizz shampoo, conditioner, serum or other hair product.
Cold water Relaxes Your NervesTaking a cold water shower at the end of the day helps to undo some of the stress of the day. Cold water relaxes the nerves and soothes your skin and hair. If you have any puffiness around your eyes, cold water will eliminate the redness and settle your skin.

It Prevents Hair DamageMost people don’t realise how delicate their hair actually is. When you wash it, brush it or play with it, you are actually damaging it. Drinking water is a remedy for this, for it protects your hair from getting damaged. Rinsing your hair in cold water after you shampoo it ensures that your cuticles get closed, so that they are not open to the dust and pollution that they get exposed to during the day.
