Gabrielle Union reminds us to step our water drinking game up.

One of my favorite posts of all time is on the topic of how Beyonce, Adriana Lima and Gabby Union drink a gallon of water a day to keep their skin perfectly flawless.  That post resonated with a lot of you and it sparked off a water drinking challenge that would change lives.

You can imagine how elated I was when to stumble on this pic, while scrolling through Gabrielle's Instagram feed.
It depicts Gabby, as she shows off a partially filled gallon of water.  In her caption, she writes about accepting a 30 Day Transformation Challenge which appears to be spearheaded by celebrity trainer Luther Freeman.  Gabby--miss overachiever, is actually pictured with her 2nd gallon of water for the day.  Yes, she's upped the ante to two gallons.  And notice how she's included a couple of lemon wedges to transform the water into an ultra alkalizing beauty tonic.

If there's one tip I'd like you to take away from this post it's this: The bigger your water bottle, the more water you'll drink.    When I first became serious about my water intake,  I grabbed this huge 56 oz drinking bottle.  It was a little cumbersome at first but it definitely served its purpose.  If I could drink two of those a day, I'd reach my goal. And, to be honest with you, it was pretty easy to do.

Then I started using a smaller (regular sized) water bottles for the sake of portability and my water intake immediately went down.  This was unacceptable.  Whenever I needed to make up for slacking on my water intake, I'd drink directly from a 3 liter bottle.  But, what I haven't yet tried, was drinking directly from a gallon.  I really like the idea.  And I love how she includes a few lemon wedges in there as a way of claiming that entire gallon as hers.  Someone as consistent as Gabby is with her water intake deserves to enjoy glowing, flawless skin at 42.  Thank you, Gabby, for reminding us to keep going so we can reap the rewards of ultra-hydration.


  1. I'm still trying to find the perfect medium for myself when it comes to water bottles. I think for me personally, lugging a gallon of water around would be overwhelming (but then again I've never tried it, so who knows!) So far what has worked out best for me is a 32 oz water bottle (I refill it twice), and of course throwing some detox ingredients in my water for flavor (I hate plain water). Side note: Throwing honeydew in your water is LOOOOOOVE. You will gulp the water away. =)

  2. I love how fabulous and youthful she looks at 42. A bit off-topic, but could you do a search and/or post on Janet Jackson's beauty rituals! She looked amazing at the recent BET awards, and I immediately started praying that you would do a post on her ASAP! thanks!

  3. @ Jessica- Thanks for the tip. Honeydew water sounds amazing.

    @Neo- I missed the awards so I gotta check out the replay. If I find anything interesting in my research, I'll do a post.
