Drink Some Water You Beautiful, Dehydrated B*tch


Honestly, this shouldn't even be something I should have to blog about but let's be real, some of us don't drink enough water. I used to be that girl who added a Crystal Lite packet to all my bottled waters and thought I was doing big things! Contrary to popular belief, drinking soda and adding calorie-free flavored packets to waters are NOT the best for you. It wasn't until I struggled with adult acne and dry patches that flaked, that I learned to consume pure water. Something as simple as not adding juice packets to my water made almost an immediate difference in my skin's texture.


Get a grip with your "but I don't like how water taste" head-ass. Consistent pure water intake is crucial to your health and its the easiest to manage once you get past the "taste". My favorite feature of drinking water is the effect it has on your skin. Your skin is an organ (duh) and water is crucial for organ function. If your skin is not getting enough water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling. That elasticity will be gone, hunny!

Drinking water is great for your skin. It helps to moisturize it, keep it soft, and improves the look of wrinkles.

When I was struggling with "plain" water, I experimented with infusing my water with fresh fruit and tried those Nestle flavored waters to begin with. I eventually graduated to drinking just plain water.
