What if all that wasn't necessary? What if you could just, say, drink water?
Okay, quick back-story.
I've always thought those Brita filtered water pitchers were kind of prissy and high-maintenance. But that doesn't mean I like tap water (hey, if you tried mine, you'd know why.) So, in general, I just never drank a lot of water. Tea? Coffee? Sure. Water? Blah.
Well, between it being the hottest summer on record, having a job that required me to work outside all through it, and finally sweating myself into heat exhaustion, I figured out that I kind of really ought to drink more water. Like the 8-10 that everybody always says is supposed to be good for you. (Aw man!)
So I bought one of those Brita water pitchers and it has proceeded to rock my world. Water tastes so good now. I've been guzzling it like never before. (This is not a product review, you can buy or not buy any brand of water filter you please!)
And I noticed something really weird.
When I drink more water, my skin -- which has always been extremely problematic -- clears up.
When I slack off and drink less water, my skin starts to revert to its wily, old ways.
I don't know whether to say it's just because I'm staying better hydrated in general, or because I'm missing out on the copper, mercury, and who-knows-what-else-they-put in tap water, but it's pretty cool.
So if you want to save money on acne treatments, make-up, moisturizers, and what-have-you, here is my Easy Frugal Tip.
Drink more water.
And that's just plain ol' water: not sugar-laden juices, teas, pops, or other bottled drinks, either.
Try it, and let me know how it goes!
