Hydrogen Water Trend–Who did it first?
The Hydrogen water trend that started in Japan around the 1960’s has reached a new audience all across the United States and Europe. Japan, a country who Business Insider claims as the fourth healthiest country on the planet is very aware of the health benefits of Hydrogen water on skin care.
A Japanese study from the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology, subjects and discovered that by drinking and bathing in Hydrogen infused water daily for three months has decreased the appearance of neck wrinkles and significantly improved the texture of the skin compared to a control group. In another study, samples of UV-damaged skin cells were shown to increase collagen production two-fold after being immersed in hydrogen water for three days.

Hydrogen Water Protects the Skin and Boosts Cell Activity
Your skin is the largest external organ in your body that serves as a protective cover for your internal organs. Water is essential to help keep your skin moisturized and vibrant.
Every day our delicate skin is exposed to reactive oxygen molecules, UV Rays, and air pollution.
Drinking hydrogen water neutralizes harmful effects of UV-rays which penetrate deep into the skin and cause damage to the outer layers. It also reduces signs of irritation and redness caused by skin damage. A study by the Molecular Hydrogen Institution also concluded that:
“hydrogen water can protect against UV-induce skin cell damage. This was further validated in another article where hydrogen water was shown to be very beneficial for UV-induced skin cell damage. The study showed that type-1 collagen was synthesized about two-fold more in the cells treated with hydrogen water. It also prevented DNA damage, cell death, and decreased levels of intra-cellular free radicals.”
