Water and Your Skin
Okay – so we all thought we were doing the right thing for our skin drinking bottled water in plastic water bottles for years to stay hydrated. Me included. It’s still right on the water. But wrong on the plastic bottles for a bunch of reasons.
Like – turns out a study showed that most bottled water contained more bacteria and chemical contaminants than tap water, because cities are held to high quality control standards but not the bottled-water companies. AND environmentally all those bottles are a disaster from the energy costs of the bottles to the energy costs of getting it here from Fiji or who knows where.
BEST OPTION: CARRY YOUR OWN REUSABLE BOTTLE AND USE YOUR OWN FILTERED OR UNFILTERED TAP WATER. THAT WATER IS GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN!
