Hydration and complexion

I came across this picture on Pinterest (hopefully it will show at a decent size) and it really resonated with me. I have a tough time staying hydrated due to my line of work which prevents me from drinking anything before and during whatever portion of the day I am working (cannot leave the OR until case is over, cannot eat or drink). My skin has been looking rather drab and I am wondering if anyone had some insight into this. I'm trying to make it a goal to drink 4 glasses of water later in the day and on the days I am not working but it is not going so well. Has anyone noticed a huge difference in their skin based on their water consumption?

My lips dry out quick if I'm not drinking enough water.

Yeah hon, the "after" photo is totally retouched. Mayyyyybe don't believe everything you see on the internet?


I chug water like a fiend but have never noticed any difference in my skin when I don't. It definitely makes a difference in how I feel/function overall though.

Re: Hydration and complexion

I know hydration is important, but I don't think sleep should be ignored. These two things are often forgotten in the beauty world...but they are important!


Can you keep a water bottle in your office or at whatever computer you're working at? I find I don't drink water unless I have the water bottle with me to remind me. If you want some extra flavor, crystal light and other brands make some great flavored mix-ins... lemonade, iced tea, etc. 

Re: Hydration and complexion

i definitely notice a difference in hydration based on my water consumption, and i suspect that having a humidifier also helps too (testing out this theory right now). However I do have to drink a few bottles of water a day haha, and that doesn't always happen. Smiley Happy
