Have you ever had a friend who was always there in your corner supporting you at every turn no matter the day or hour? As time progressed you became familiar with one another and began to take that dependability for granted. All of a sudden, a strong wind blows and someone who seems to be the life of any party chiming with bells and whistles appears! In a moments twinkling of an eye surprisingly as the rubber meets the road they are clearly nowhere in sight. Hesitantly, you lift up your head carrying a heart full of disappointment only to be greeted with a loving smile as wide as the ocean. You glance at a picture sitting on the shelf collecting dust and remember that special BFF who has faithfully been there and still cares.
How easy it is to neglect that which is most important to our health and well being. Naturally, one of the purest gifts to our skin is water. This earthly treasure has been available to us since the beginning of time yet it is highly disregarded. The current multibillion dollar cosmetic industry is fueled by our lack of discipline as it relates to self care. We seek temporary fixes claiming to be the next best thing since sliced bread. Don’t forget the high price tag accompanied to discover luminous and radiant skin once again. Makeup Artist Laura Mercier frankly stated it this way, “Your confidence will make you sexier than any beauty product or accessory you could possibly buy.” Countless experts say that the skin is the bench mark of your body’s health. WOW!
Let’s highlight a few benefits of your skins’ best friend:
- Hydration– will keep your skin looking revitalized and oxygenated. It will prevent premature aging. When your water intake is extremely low it can leave your skin looking dull, scaly and course.
- Detoxification-eliminates bodily waste which allow your vital organs to operate at their optimum functionality. As a result you will experience greater sustainability in your energy levels throughout the day.
- Weight Loss– will occur as you consume fewer calories due to a higher degree of water intake. Let’s face it when we look better we feel better. This is a sure beauty booster!
A nice cold glass of water is the least expensive way to treat yourself to a priceless dose of youthfulness. The next time you find yourself ready to indulge in another beauty product remember to take a pause for the cause and ask the question, “Have I neglected my skins’ BFF today?” Always remember true beauty begins from within and pure H20 will be standing by your side until the very end.
