For some reason I haven't been drinking enough water lately (just not a liquid person unless it's coffee or wine lol) and my skin and body is definitely feeling it!
My face has been flaky and dry no matter how much moisturizer I use and internally my stomach has been a mess! Now that I've started back on the water kick my skin is less irritated and flaky and stomach is back to normal.
How often do you guys drink water?

I make a point of drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day...not only does it make me feel satiated but my skin looks a lot better and I retain a lot less water if I am properly hydrated throughout the day....

Wow, mizzrobin, that's fantastic! I wish I can do the same but I just never remember to drink water. I work in a research lab; I can't have water on my work bench and I'm rarely at my desk. I only drink water when I eat my meals.
The lady who does my facial occasionally told me that for every cup of coffee I drink, I need to replenish the water content in my body with 3-4 cups of water. :S I drink one coffee every morning and I definitely am not drinking enough to recover from the coffee plus my daily needs. :(

I'm with you, BB. I might come close to making up for coffee losses, but nowhere near Robin! Oh well :)
My problem is that I just don't care for water. I drink it because I know I should, not because it's a favourite beverage.

Before I've never ever drank water at all, if I did it was very little and not much. I've never liked the taste of water, all of them would taste the same to me, nasty. No wonder I came here to ChickAdvisor wen I first heard of it asking like crazy what to do for my super dry skin that was driving me crazy. Specially my forehead, it was horrible! I swear it was like cracked dead dry skin on it, that's how it looked and wasn't able to put make up on cause it made it more visible.
A HUGE transformation now, I mean it, it has really changed and I love it. I have dry skin still but not like before and my forehead it's back to normal how is suppose to look. No more dry cracked dead skin. :D I wash my face twice a day now, in the morning and at night. I exfoliate my face twice a week, use moisturizer daily and sunscreen even though we're not in summer.
I drink water more often now, still working on it but I do drink more than I did before. After testing different waters because they do taste different for the ones that don't know this. Well at least for me...and the ones I like are Sam's Choice Purified and don't remember at the moment the name of the other one but it starts with a "D" I believe. Every time I get thirsty now I actually enjoy drinking water.
So for the ones that don't like water, well I still don't like water but I did find one that I do enjoy drinking...look for the right one. I know some of you guys will think I'm crazy, lol...and think, water is water, it all taste the same, it's just water cause I use to think that but now I don't.
|water not my drink of choice either... on Dec 16, 2009 @ 03:30 pm|
I'm with mamaluv - I drink water because I know I should. Sometimes I'll do a flavoured water but who wants to spend extra money when you can get it for free?
BB - I've heard that too about for every coffee you should drink so many glasses of water to replenish. Yah, I need to work on that lol.

I agree with Jovanna (and is it 'Deer Park' you're thinking of?), that if you find that one water you like, it can make all the difference! I personally love San Pelligrino (I know, could it be more expensive??), which I buy at Costco when the coupon comes out and I stock up on half a dozen cases :) It works out to cheaper than soda or juice, but is still a pricey option.
I have also started drinking filtered water with a slice of lemon. It's just enough to make me think I'm drinking something flavoured, but without the calories or strange chemicals.
|very very often on Dec 17, 2009 @ 06:48 am|
I drink a gallon a day...just because it IS the best thing for me :)
They have an awesome electrolyte mix that they add to the water at my job-it has a light citrus flavor but I don't mind drinking it plain as long as its not from the tap (yuck).
I drink 2 big glasses as soon as I get up, then have 6oz of coffee. Once I get to work its all water all the time :)
|I drink a ton... on Dec 18, 2009 @ 11:50 am|
Water is actually the only thing I drink aside from my morning coffee. I used to be like many of you: I didn't like the taste of water so I never drank it. My mom used to drink a ton and I always wondered how she did it. However I have made it into a good habit and now feel SO parched if I don't have several glasses a day.

I don't get when people say they don't like the taste of water. Nothing quenches my thirst like a cold glass of water. I drink it constantly all day long and have a glass beside my bed at night. Of course the hazard there is that you are constantly needing a bathroom break ;)

I love water too. But if you find that it's too plain, there are always ways to make it taste better. You can try adding a piece of fruit to your water, lemon is the obvious one... but a slice of strawberry, cucumber, lime or orange are also really tasty water flavourings. Another thing you can try is to dilute 100% juice (OJ perhaps) with club soda (cheaper than San Pellegrino or Perrier). Start with a higher concentration of juice to soda (or water) slowly increase the water/soda ratio. It's like your own homemade Orangina drink, but cheaper and better for you!
