Drink more water and give your skin a daily makeover

I am not a dermatologist, but drinking water regularly is one of the best things you could do for your physical health and skin. This should come as no surprise since our skin contains 64 percent water. Replenishing the water in our skin by drinking the recommended 8 glasses of water a day is the sensible thing to do. I make sure I drink as much water as possible throughout the day. It is a lot easier for me to drink more water these days since I have cut out fizzy drinks from my diet. I am also on a natural healthy sort of diet and that eliminates lots of drinks and food, which leaves room for more water.

Drink more water and give your skin a daily makeover

So how does water really help the skin? Here are a few skin benefits of drinking water to get that daily makeover –

Water removes toxins

Drinking the right amount of water will help get rid of toxins in your body, which will help you glow from the inside out. If you are dealing with facial spots, acne, and other skin issues, you should try drinking more water if you are not doing so already. That may just do the trick!

Water keeps the skin hydrated

Apart from removing skin toxins, water also keeps the skin hydrated. Water is pretty much a natural moisturiser. I see many people spending a lot of money on skincare products but neglecting their diet. Drinking the right amount of water every day is the fastest way to keep your skin hydrated.

Here are some celebrities who swear by drinking water –

Beyonce

“I try to take care of myself, drinking at least a gallon of water with lemon a day,”

Gabrielle Union

“I try to drink a gallon of water a day, and I try to get in 32 ounces with breakfast,”

Rosie Huntington Whiteley

“As soon as I wake up, I try and drink a liter of water,”

My lips usually let me know when I need to drink more water. They get really dry, and that is my reminder to increase my water intake. Since I started drinking more water religiously, I have noticed a huge difference in my skin. It is a lot clearer and there is a glow for sure. Drinking enough water is one of the best things you could ever do for your skin. So make sure you drink more water and give your skin a daily makeover!

You may find that you have been unconsciously washing your face like this the whole time and not realise our very own Audrey Hepburn recommended these same steps.

How to Wash Your Face Like Audrey Hepburn
Immerse the soap bar in hot water

The first step is to immerse your soap bar in hot water that is comfortable to touch. Then rub the soap bar gently over the face. After rubbing the soap bar all over the face, dip the soap bar again into the hot water and make a rich lather in your hands.

Massage lather over the face

The next step is to massage lather over the face.

Splash the face 20 times with the hot water

Once the lather has been massaged all over the face, splash the face 20 times with the hot water. Remember this water must be comfortable to touch, so not too hot. It is best to mix some hot water in a container so you are sure you have the right temperature.

Splash the face 10 times hot running water

This is the tricky bit, splashing the face 10 times with hot running water is the next step. I do this step quickly so the water does not get too hot.

Pat dry

The final step is patting the face dry with a very soft towel. Don’t be tempted to rub as this could your skin do more harm than good.

What is beauty really about?

There are so many articles and books about what beauty is and what makes us beautiful. Sometimes the tips and advice in these sources can be very conflicting, which ends us leaving us even more confused. What is beauty really about? To answer this question, I love John Kenneth Galbraith’s quote – There is certainly no absolute standard of beauty. That precisely is what makes its pursuit so interesting. There is no straight way of achieving beauty and there is no absolute standard of beauty. It is different for everyone, which is why we really should take these words of advice with a pinch of salt and work out which of the tips work for us.

Dealing with a bad day image

Every woman has her own beauty and I believe every woman is her own version of beautiful. I love the saying – Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We really should remember that when we look at these fancy magazines with models wearing perfect makeup.

Here are 2 ideas of what beauty is really about –

Being happy in yourself

Being happy in yourself is one of the most important beauty tips anyone could ever give. It can be tricky sometimes but being really happy is the most important beauty advice of all. Do whatever makes you happy in yourself.

Accepting your features

Embrace all that makes you you. Accept your features, fall in love with each and every one of them. Get to know them, get to understand how to work with them.

Living is more enjoyable than appearing

There is a lot more to a beautiful face. It pays to have an attractive face and I am not playing it down in anyway. However, I am usually more interested in the person behind the face. There is a lot more to a pretty face. As cliche as it sounds, beauty comes from within, living is way more enjoyable than appearing, so we should remember to live and not focus on just looking the part.

The luxury skincare and makeup products will not make you as attractive as you think if you are ugly on the inside. They may do little or nothing if that is all you are focusing on. It is easy to get obsessed with our looks, but we should remember not to neglect other parts that make us who we are. Which is why we should focus on our inside as much as we focus on our outside. Beauty is only skin deep, but real ugly goes clear to the bone.
