Drink water — two words you hear constantly from doctors, beauty gurus, and models. It’s not a secret (it’s never been), but why is it still so hard for people to do? Besides being necessary for our survival, water is known to be the most effective way to achieving optimum health for many reasons.

Let’s start off by talking about the benefits of drinking H2O.

1. Aids in weight loss
This shouldn’t come as a surprise that people who drink more water proved to have smaller waistlines. This is because the hydrated don’t confuse thirst with hunger, as many Americans do, and also don’t look as bloated. Feeling hungry even after you’ve eaten a decent sized meal? That’s just your body signaling to you that it’s in need of hydration.

2. Makes you look and feel younger 
The number one sign of dehydration is fatigue. By drinking an H2O elixir, you’ll be less sluggish throughout your day. Seeing signs of crow’s feet? Proper hydration reverses signs of aging and fine lines, and will make your face appear more youthful.

3. Clears skin 
Drinking plenty of water flushes out excess toxins in the body. Since blemishes are your skin’s way of detoxing, your acne and clogged pores will be cleared, giving you a natural glow.

Now that we have your attention, you may be wondering about ways you can drink more water. You’re a busy person, and drinking three liters a day like this woman did, is not that convenient. Follow our tips that’ll have you drinking more water in no time!

  • Buy a reusable water bottle
    Make sure that it is BPA free, and has an attached straw. Try one of our faves, the Camelbak.
  • Fill your cup even when you’re not thirsty
    You don’t have to drink the water right away, but chances are you’re more likely to drink it if it’s already there.
  • Add fruit 
    Think the flavor of water is just too bland? Adding lemon is actually known to help your body fight free-radicals, and balance your pH levels. Buy a fruit infuser and add strawberries, cucumbers, herbs, and anything else that suits your taste buds!

Now we’ll say this one more time — drink more water!
