Beautiful, soft, supple, clear skin is within your reach. Although moisturising skincare products may have their place, beauty really does come from within. The simple and cost effective solution is to drink a plentiful amount of pure water. Our cells need water to function at their best. Skin cells that are fully hydrated from within will give you smoother, softer, glowing, skin. Any wrinkles you may have will appear diminished as the skin plumps up and dark, under eye circles will vanish. You will have a noticeably clearer complexion and may well receive complements on your skin’s new-found, healthy and youthful look. Be sure to pass on your beauty secret to anyone who enquires. Why not set yourself a goal to drink your target amount of 2-3 litres of pure water per day and keep a record of how your skin is responding to the extra fluid intake. You might like to gauge simply by how it looks and feels to you as time progresses, or you might like to take periodic photos so you can look back and actually see the difference it has made. And don’t forget to keep it up or all these benefits will be lost if your hydration levels drop again.
Drinking an adequate amount of pure water on daily basis should be a joy and not a hassle. One of the best ways to achieve this goal is to have a constant supply of fresh water in a container that is pleasant to drink from an easy to take care of. We highly recommend the Eau Good range of water bottles by Black and Blum. They are available in several colours to suit everyone. They are beautifully designed, comfortable to hold and use and are highly portable. Perfect for every day use at home, at work or whilst out and about in general. Simply refill with tap water as the day goes on or have a couple of bottles on the go.
Questions & Answers Section
Q: How much water should I drink each day for beautiful skin?
A: You should aim to drink 2-3 litres of pure water every single day.
Q: How often should I drink water?
A: You should drink your daily quota of water regularly spaced throughout the day. If you drink large amounts in one go, the water will not find it’s way to your thirsty skin cells, instead it will leave your body as urine output too soon to gain the benefit. Also drinking a large amount of water in a short space of time can be dangerous.
Q: Will I need to go to the toilet to pass urine more often than usual?
A: If you are not used to drinking adequate amounts of water, then yes the increased fluid intake will increase your urine output, but not to an unreasonable level. You will soon adjust to your new habits.
Q: Can I drink flavoured water or squash instead?
A: This is not recommended. Squash and flavoured waters contain unnecessary additives and calories that can easily lead to weight gain and a sweet tooth. Pure, preferably filtered water is best.
Q: What about tea and coffee?
A: Whilst these are fine for an occasional drink, they should not be considered part of your daily pure water intake. Initially stick to pure water for the first few weeks to reap the best health benefits. Once you have adjusted to drinking more pure water on a daily basis you can reintroduce the odd cup of tea or coffee.
Q: Fizzy drinks?
A: Definitely not!
Q:I don’t like the taste of tap water, what can I do?
A: Try using a water filter, this can make tap water more palatable for those who dislike the taste. We recommend the Eau Good as mentioned above. Bottled water is an option but is not as practical and can be very expensive in the long run.
Q: How soon can I expect to see results?
A: If you are currently consuming less than optimum amounts of water then you will be dehydrated to some degree and should notice a difference fairly quickly, perhaps even within a few days . If your current water consumption is not quite so low then it may take a little longer to really notice the benefits. We recommend you continue for at least 8 weeks to gauge the effects on your skin. Why not keep a record as mentioned above and let us know how you get on.
Q: Is water really that good for skin?
A: Yes, just give it a go and see for yourself.
Q. What else can I do for great skin?
A. Ensure you eat a well balanced diet including plenty of vitamins and minerals to nourish your skin from within and regularly use facial exercises which not only improve facial muscle tone but also increase blood circulation which will greatly benefit your skin.
