One way I’ve managed to make sure I get enough water per day — 13 cups for men, 9 cups for women — is to always have two 1-liter bottles of water in the fridge that I sip from throughout the day. Once I’m done with both of them, I know that between those and whatever else I’ve had to drink, my daily water intake is good for the day. And my skin is well-nourished!

It’s safe to say that I’m now well and truly addicted — and in good company, as I know Victoria Beckham is a fan, too!

Fresh juices

Juices and smoothies are also great for getting various nutrients in one healthy serving. The vitamins and nutrients they contain are good for healing your skin and maintaining its health. To avoid preservatives and added sugars — which can wreak havoc on the skin — try making your own rather than buying from the store.

One of my favorite masking brands is GlamGlow, as they have a plethora of skin-loving products which cater to a variety of skin types. I’m often cynical about the notion of a product transforming your skin, but after the first use of the SuperMud Clearing Treatment mask, my skin looked noticeably more radiant and had a definite glow.
