I don’t do sodas at all and I’m not a big lemonade and/or ice tea person. My main drink is water, then hot tea and KeVita. I grew up in California drinking lots of ice water, so drinking water everyday is second nature to me. But that’s not what inspired this week’s nutrition challenge.
I attended a gala on Saturday and decided to get an oxygen facial for the event. They actually inject oxygen into your pores, Naomi Campbell will not do a runway show without having this facial. I always look 5 years younger after the procedure. If you ever want to treat yourself I recommend it.
While laying on the table the esthetician updated me on my skin’s health. I learned that there is no way to shrink pores, pore size is hereditary, the only way to make your pores smaller and less visible is to drink water. Her biggest tip was to stay hydrated. If I was fully hydrated my pores would look smaller. I knew right then and there I was going to triple my water intake and I wanted all of you to get in on the fun.
Water has a rejuvenating effects on the skin.
