The Most Important Beauty Tip

The Most Important Beauty Tip

Water, water, water! – It’s the solution to all my health and beauty issues.  Everyone knows how good water is for you – it’s no secret!  Yet most of us still don’t drink enough water!  Instead we invest in expensive creams and treatments – hoping for a quick, lazy fix!  I was definitely one of those people – but not anymore!  I drink at least 2 litres a day and I always drinks 3 litres of water the day before any modelling shoots.  Eights glasses of water is simply not enough for me!  The main issue I have are the dark bags under my eyes – the solution is 3 litres of water the day before.  Whether I’m on set, travelling or in a bar with friends – I will always have at least 1 bottle of water with me!

Get Into Good Drinking Habits

Make them part of your normal routine:

  • Keep a litre of water everywhere – on your desk at work, in every room in the house, in your fridge and in your bag
  • Have a pint of water when you wake up, after lunch and after dinner
  • Make your water interesting by adding different colourful fruits – detox water!

Detox Water Recipes

I am a big fan of detox water!  Just add your favourite fruit to water -the key is to keep it varied and colourful.  Fresh fruit is always the best but as I’m constantly travelling I need have plenty of frozen fruit stocked up.  In my freezer you will find:

  • Lemons, limes and oranges – sliced thinly and placed in single layers in zip lock bags.  (Great for detox water, add to hot water, add to green tea and great in alcoholic drinks too)
  • Whole blueberries
  • Whole strawberries
  • Mint and peppermint
  • Ginger – sliced thinly and placed in single layers in zip lock bags

Fruit I don’t like to freeze but do like to add to my detox water:

  • Apples
  • Raspberries
  • Cucumber
  • Watermelon
