3 Beauty Tricks With Water

I won’t repeat what your grandmother already told you: Drink eight glasses of water. 

I won’t rewrite what Google researched for you: Water is good for your skin. 

I won’t whisper what your diet-conscious friend said to you: Water fills you up. 

But today I will share some beauty tricks you and I can do with the mighty H2O.

1. Close pores with cold water. It’s no secret that I have open pores but a little trick that has helped me shrunk ’em, albeit tentatively, is washing my face with oil-free cleanser and cold water. Cold = constricts. Try it.

2. Get smoother hair with cold water. A hairdresser told me this. Cold water constricts the cuticles which makes hair strands smoother.

3. No- heat bouncy curls with water. Section hair in 4 or  6 parts (depending on your hair length). Mist hair with water, twist each section into a bun, secure with bobby pin, then blow-dry. Easy peasy.

Now going back to what my gramma said: Do you really drink 8 glasses of water? Or better yet, do you love drinking water? Without batting an eyelash, I do! In fact, I bring a large water jug to work everyday. Water is my fuel in between patient care and admin work. Water with ice, ahhh nirvana!

To those of you who are not really into water (I don’t blame you because it can be boring at times), there’s a great way to add water back to your lifestyle. Have you heard of Stur? I had the opportunity to try this brand and can I just say that it tastes sooooooo good, it’s like I’m drinking fruity juice sans the calories!

// PR Sample //

In a nutshell, Stur is a guilt-free mix to add fantastic taste to le boring water. I say guilt-free because it has no sugar and calories so it’s great for those who are trying to lose weight or manage diabetes. It has natural fruit flavors and seven essential vitamins. My favorite flavor from the samples I received is strawberry, it is seriously refreshing! I squeeze the bottle for 10 seconds (or more) into a cup, and then I add crushed ice and water. According to the label, one bottle is good for 18 servings. I lost count but it lasted me 3 days. 

You can buy 5 flavors for only $19.95 from Stur website or Amazon.

Have you tried Stur?
