If you’ve read many of the posts that we have, you may have noticed that water or H2O is a pretty common topic. You may even be sick of hearing about how important it is to stay hydrated. It’s rather imperative for overall health and well-being. I personally don’t care what anyone says, I feel as though this truly is great for your body.
However, I’m not so sure about those fancy waters that you purchase at Starbucks and the other natural food stores. The question is whether or not these wallet breaking bottles are doing more good for your skin or just harm on your bank account. Let’s dive right in and find out!
Is Fancy Bottled Water Worth The Money?
The first thing that I’d like to point out is from an article that was published. Don’t shoot the messenger, but the article states that water consumption won’t make your skin look more hydrated. Don’t get mad at me, I’m just saying that’s something to think about that’s all!
I don’t care about plain old H2O. That is something we need to consume in order to survive. I’m more interested in the uber expensive mineral waters, botanical waters, and all those other so-called super waters with super skin powers. Do they work? Are they game changers?
What I think most people forget is that many of the fancy waters being consumed are no different from consuming regular spring water with a few extra additives. At least that’s my personal take on all this. Whether you’re buying expensive Voss or Fiji, it’s all the same if you ask me. Heck, instead of doing that, I’d probably just buy drinkable sunscreen and kill two birds with one stone. Hydrate my skin and protect from the sun!
You shouldn’t be drinking certain waters in order to benefit from the additives. Instead, I strongly suggest that you simply consume water because your body and skin demand it. After all, your skin is made up of more than 60% of it. Water can also help increase your circulation and blood flow to your skin. What you also probably didn’t know was that people that don’t drink enough water are more likely to have more oily skin versus those that do not.
I know I’ve left this rather open-ended and I did so on purpose. I’d like for you to start keeping a log of the amount of bottled water that you consume. In addition to that, keep a log of how much money you spend on it. Keep a close eye on your skin to determine whether or not it’s improving the condition of your skin. Who knows, the little home experiment may just save you a ton of money that you could be spending on skin care products instead of fancy bottles filled with H2O.
