Water Skin

I had written this post about a year ago, but I wanted to bring it back up and show you this link because I think it is so enlightening.  It is something that is very important to me and my health and something that has become one of my best habits and beauty secrets.
I know everybody is always seeking the best products, treatments, and regimens to achieve perfect skin.  To me, it’s one of the most important parts of beauty.  Makeup or no makeup, great skin always leaves you looking and feeling beautiful.  What is my number one skin care secret?  WATER, H20, ACQUA- whatever you want to call it!
Forget the expensive creams and treatments- drinking water is one of the best things you can do to keep your skin looking young and glowing all year long. Staying hydrated promotes skin circulation at its base so that skin repair doesn’t decrease. If you feel like you’re constantly putting on lotion with no results, drinking more water every day could improve your skin.  Seems too simple, right?  It’s free, it’s available everywhere, and it’s probably the easiest thing you can do for yourself.  I love this article here that proves that increasing your water intake can take ten years off of your face.  Here is the picture to prove it!
My challenge to you- drink more water and see what happens to your skin…..I don’t think you’ll regret it! It’s all about habits and one that finally has stuck with me.  I am very routine and measured, so what has worked the best for me is actually having a 44 ounce bottle of water (1.5 Liters) and I make sure I drink 2 of those a day.  I try to start my water in the morning and have the first bottle finished by just after lunch, and then I fill up again and start on the second bottle to drink throughout the rest of the evening.  I am the nerd that carries my water bottle around with me wherever I go- but I don’t care because I love what it does for my skin, digestion, and overall health.  Take on this challenge (like now) and see the amazing results you will get in your body!  Can’t wait to see how it helps you!  XOXO
