Proof that drinking your water can make you beautiful

How is everyone doing with their water drinking? You didn't think I forgot, did you? Just because I haven't touched on the subject lately, doesn't mean we still aren't taking on this challenge! If all of my past begging, pleading, and shouting from the rooftops didn't convince you to drink more water, maybe this will.

 Sarah, a 42 year old woman was suffering from health symptoms including poor digestion and reoccurring headaches. Desperate to try something to cure her ailments, she sought the help of a medical professional who encouraged Sarah, to increase her daily water intake to 3 liters. Sarah was willing to try anything to address her health concerns but little did she know that three liters of water would benefit her in ways she couldn't have imagined.

 The image you are seeing before is the transformation Sarah experienced after only four weeks of drinking three liters of water a day.

  • The bags under her eyes are gone.
  • Dark circles disappeared.
  • Her skin tone is even toned and brighter.
  • Her lips are plumper.
  • Wrinkles have diminished greatly. 
  • She appears almost decade younger than she did just four weeks earlier. 
If this isn't enough to keep you inspired every time you take a sip of water, I don't know what is.  Sarah also experienced improvements in her digestion, her flexibility and her headaches disappeared.  She even lost a little weight during the process and experienced improvement in her cellulite.  

Last week I traveled across the country to attend business meetings.  I posted on my instagram page an image of my water along with other necessities to maintain moisture levels.  I know the devastation that occurs when we are dehydrated.  A counterpart and I hosted the meeting for our department.  Throughout the entire 3 days, I kept a 1.5 liter bottle of Fiji water on hand from which I sipped regularly.  I didn't see her drink anything during the entire session.  On the last day, I caught a glimpse of her arms and legs which were scaly and clearly parched.  As we hugged goodbye at the close of the meeting, I begged her to start drinking more water.  The look on her face let me know that she understood exactly what I meant.  She confessed that drinking water was an opportunity for her then vowed to take better care of herself.  Like Sarah, her face showed signs of premature aging that I'm certain will correct itself if her water intake increased.  

What's most interesting to me about this article is the amount of water Sarah drank.  I have this theory that various level of water intake provide different benefits.  If we only drink a couple of cups a day (like Sarah did pre-experiment). The benefits are minimal.  We are able to stay alive. Basic functions are operating, but at the same time, our health is impacted.  Then, as we increase our water to maybe 1 liter or 2, we start feeling better. Toxins are eliminated at a faster rate. Things get better.  But when we veer into the territory that lies just beyond 2 litters (up to a gallon a day), then something wonderful happens.  Our bodies have enough resources to deal with the pressing health issues. Then finds that it can also focus on what I  call "beauty benefits."  

Beauty benefits are when your skin starts to clear up, your scalp isn't as dry as it used to be, your nails grow in nicely, your hair flourishes and you have an all over glow.  Who wouldn't want that?  I know you want that.....don't you?  

Then drinking your effin' water.

  1. As I was reading this post, I was sipping hard on my water. Off I go for a top up. Water is the key and we reading this most definitely have access to it.
    Drink up FOLKS :)

  2. Wow she looks ten years younger...(Running to get some water right now!!). RoRo’s World

  3. I saw the pic before I read the title and I thought she was photo-shopped. My sister is a water fanatic and encourages me to drink reverse-osmosis water, unfortunately I have a hard time finding this type of water where I live. I definitely drink more than a liter a day and i'm trying to up it to 2 and beyond. Thanks for the reminder to keep at it!

  4. I am currently finishing my 3rd bottle of water today.Since increasing my water intake I have been able to clear up my skin, and lose the few pounds I gained when going away to college. I am a firm believer in water's beauty secrets lol. Thanks for this post to keep me motivated to continue drinking more water!

  5. She looks different in the pictures because the lighting is totally different, you can clearly see the flash in the reflection of her eyes in the 2nd pic. Any photographer worth their salt can make a person look better with better lighting--hence the existence of special photography lights. I do fully believe in the merits of drinking more water to be healthier, but these photos are an infomercial-esque example of before an after.

  6. That is amazing! Definitely about to get on my water! Thanks for the great info and God bless!

  7. A picture is worth 1,000 words!

  8. I increased my water intake about two months ago. I always drank water, but I increased it to at least 30 ozs and up to 64ozs on a good day. I don't know if I could ever drink a gal of water. LOL

    Water intake does make a difference.

  9. Whenever I get compliments on my skin, I always attribute it to drinking lots of water. Now matter if the image was photoshopped or not, drinking water is so beneficial. Just do it.

  10. There’s really a lot of benefits one can get from drinking water all the time. It washes away toxins and free radicals you might have gotten from the things you have consumed. Not to mention that it keeps your skin moisturized, so you don't have to worry too much about dry skin. Cheers!
