"Drink more water to relieve constipation" might not be right always.
Water after drying up makes the system more drier. Water can hydrate but doesn't grease. Habitual constipation is due to Vata increase and the system becomes rooksha (dry/smoothlessness). This cannot be handled by water.
Instead consume one tablespoon of pure cow's ghee (melted) followed by half a glass of hot milk/water at bedtime. Also make some minor lifestyle alterations. This in due course of time, will make the system snigdha (oily). This relieves constipation and also gives the skin the desired glow. Have treated 100s of patients with just ghee.
