Have We Been Drinking Water All Wrong?
We’ve all heard it. Drinking water is good for your health. Drink fewer sugary and caffeinated drinks and more water if you want to be healthy. Study after study has shown that even mild dehydration has the ability to affect your mood and ability to concentrate. Did you know that drinking water is also good for your skin?
Dotti Streeters is a makeup artist who is well known for her organic and clean lifestyle. She is also famous for helping Alicia Keys maintain her fresh-faced no makeup look and claims that a regime of regular water drinking has been an important part of Keys’ daily skin care routine.
Speaking on a panel of beauty and wellness experts, Dotti shared a water tip that she learned from a Georgian woman whom she went to see for a lymphatic massage. She said it changed her life, skin, and sleep.
“She told me this, and I swear to god I’m addicted: From when I get up in the morning, until 2:00 p.m., I drink two liters of water. From 2:00-5:00 p.m., I drink one liter of water, and after 5:00, I just sip my water.”
What are the benefits of keeping this schedule? “Seriously, ever since I’ve been doing this, [even though] we’re in winter, I do not need lip balm or creams,” says Dotti. “I was literally on set yesterday, and we do 10 hours nonstop, and I stick to my regime and no lip balm needed.”
“You won’t wake up having to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. I’m like a camel, I’d drink forever, [this schedule] stops you from peeing eight times a night,” Dotti told the participants. “You don’t get that broken sleep, which means your body rests.”
