Dermatologist Recommendation – A Good Water Machine💦

“When tap water contains a high concentration of minerals like magnesium, lead, and zinc, it’s known as hard water — and the minerals can leave a film on skin that causes dryness. “Heavy metals turn the oils on skin into a thick substance that plugs glands, aggravates conditions like acne and rosacea, and prevents moisturizers from being absorbed into the skin,” says Dennis Gross, MD, a dermatologist in New York City. “Investing in a home filtration system will lighten the mineral content of water, and Gross recommends adding chelators, like vitamins A and C, to skin care because they counteract the coating deposited by hard water.”
Kangen Water machines have proved to be more than adequate  for producing hydrating, ionized,  alkaline water. The machine is manufactured  in Japan by a company called ‘Enagic’  that is 40 years old,   that in itself speaks for the fact in this day in age that it has a good reputation and product.

Interesting Article On Our Daily Consumption Of Water

 I read this article in a online magazine called New Beauty. I have always questioned about the amount of water that we have been told we should be drinking each day.

For me I have to make a concerted effort to drink 8 glasses of water. Its almost impossible and I certainly can not do it day in and day out. I remember reading my old health Guru  and Author ‘Adele Davis‘, she always maintained that drinking too much water actually washes the minerals and vitamins from our body. Maybe she was right. In those days I drank a lot of milk which she did advocate. I was skinny then too.

Anyway you can always make up your own mind on the subject but I thought it made interesting reading.

Is This the Biggest Beauty Lie You’ve Been Believing?

You’ve surely heard this advice – or maybe even doled it out a few times: Drink eight glasses of water a day for beautiful skin and a healthy body.

As it turns out, that’s a longstanding myth from the 1940s that just refuses to die, says Aaron E. Carroll, a pediatrics professor from Indiana University School of Medicine. In a New York Times piece, Carroll sources the origins of this common belief to a 1945 Food and Nutrition Board recommendation that said people needed 2.5 liters of water a day. What everyone ignored, however, was the explanation that “most of this quantity is contained in prepared foods.”

Carroll first debunked the water myth back in a medical paper in 2007, but says that public opinion hasn’t changed at all over the majority of a decade since. “There’s no real scientific proof that, for otherwise healthy people, drinking extra water has any health benefits,” he writes.

While downing eight glasses a day may not be a magic formula, experts agree that it is important to stay hydrated, regardless of the source of hydration.

“Every organ and body system depends on water to function properly. The optimal amount of  intake varies depending on one’s health, activity and geographical location, but can be consumed through drinking water or eating water-rich foods like watermelon and spinach,” says New York dermatologist Marnie Nussbaum, MD. “Research from the Institute of Medicine found that men need approximately 13 cups and women need about nine cups of total fluid intake from water and foods.”

“It’s true that the skin needs water, just like every part of your body, to function properly, but as long as you drink enough fluids to maintain body hydration, you’re fine,” adds Chevy Chase, MD, dermatologist Elizabeth Tanzi, MD. “It’s never been proven scientifically that if you drink more water, you’ll have more beautiful skin.”
