Drinking Water for Clear Skin. My Results.

Leave a comment
Drinking water

I’ve been drinking water consistently for 2 weeks straight. I mean, a lot of water. I would squeeze some lemon or lime in my water for an antioxidant boost. I would add organic raw apple cider vinegar. Make tea. Or, just drink plain ‘ol water to hydrate myself. The more I did it, the easier it became. When I would run out of water, I would refill it whenever possible. Yeah, I went to the bathroom a ton, lol. I do have electrolyte packets too just in case I drink too much water. There is such a thing as too much of something.

Has drinking more water affected my skin? YES! My skin doesn’t feel too dry anymore. It feels and looks supple. It still does have that natural sebum appearance that I’m always trying to get rid of, lol. When I wash my face in the morning and at night, my skin doesn’t feel tight. It looks really nice and hydrated. Keep in mind that I am using skin care products to maintain a clear complexion too. Without them, I don’t think water alone would clear my skin up. My skin is way more difficult than that. Increasing my water intake does help. It’s just a part of being healthy and taking care of yourself from the inside out. šŸ™‚

Also, I’m moving towards to not wearing makeup on a daily basis. I would have a debate if I should wear makeup or not when I’m getting dressed. When I do wear makeup, it just doesn’t feel right on my skin even though it’s a thin layer of makeup. Maybe I’ve grown accustomed to my natural skin. I’ll try to wear makeup again some time next week (maybe, lol). I didn’t mention this, but my hair feels very healthy too. It feels fuller. It could just be an illusion, since my overall health is fantastic! Everything feels so good. HAHA. šŸ˜€

I recommend drinking more water if you’re not. Remember not to overdo it. Stay hydrated. Stay healthy. Stay safe. Good luck! āœŒ

NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm??

NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm
NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm

I purchased NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm about 1 year ago. It looks like the BB Cream is still good for use. It doesn’t have a smell or feel tacky. I decided to give it a go again. Why?? As I was using my elf Flawless Finish Foundation without a primer, the foundation looked dry and accentuated fine lines and wrinkles on my skin. I could see patches of my skin care products (that I applied to my skin, that I let soak in) balling up. That simply means the skin care + foundation was rolling off of my face! Devastating! :'(

What NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm looks like

I realized I still have a BB Cream sitting around untouched. Lo and behold, NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm to the rescue! For some odd reason, it worked this time. I didn’t use it as a BB Cream. I used it as a makeup primer only. The tint to this BB Cream was completely useless. It doesn’t cover anything on the skin, but I didn’t care. I wanted to see if it worked as a primer or not with my new foundation — elf Flawless Finish Foundation.

What I did was follow my morning regimen, let my skin care products soak into my skin, apply NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm, then apply my elf Flawless Finish Foundation. IT WORKED. The foundation looked smooth, natural, and matte. I’ve been doing this for three days straight to see if my skin will react negatively or not. So far, no breakouts and no signs of irritation. My skin looks good. My makeup looks flawless! I love how my makeup looks sooo natural. With the elf Flawless Finish Foundation, the NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm worked.

I’m glad I gave NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm a second chance. I will continue to use it as my primer if it doesn’t break me out. Have you used NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm before? Did it work for you? Share your thoughts!
