This dry fall air is dehydrating my skin horribly. My marionette lines suddenly look like vending machine coin slots and my eyelids are more wrinkled than a linen skirt on a 14 hr flight to Japan. Yes, it’s that bad.
Realizing that desperate times call for desperate measures, I decided to attempt the unthinkable. Drinking eight 8 oz glasses of water a day for a week. (Considering I usually only ingest water to wash down Advil and vitamins, this is a big undertaking for me.)
Here’s how it went down:
Dear daily water consumption diary, day one
I think my bladder is going to explode.
Dear daily water consumption diary, day two
My skin looks so much better already: more dewy, a healthy pink color, more hydrated, firmer and more plump. My fine lines are starting to fill out (even the crow’s feet). I even see a difference in my marionette lines and those raisins I call eyelids.
This is the best, damn skin care product I’ve ever used. No joke. My skin looks sooo much healthier, more dewy and wrinkles, of many varieties, have been plumped right off my face.
And the best part is, I don't even need Depends, because my bladder is now big enough to house the 2012 Olympic backstroke competition.
Are you a big water drinker? What do you think? Does it have a beneficial effect on your skin?
