Sun rays, cosmetics aging and many other factors collectively lead us to a dull and gloomy skin. We cannot completely avoid the sun can we? We all have jobs and schools to attend and not wanting to step out in the sun is not reason enough to skip working or schooling. We cannot completely stop applying cosmetics. We are girls and makeup is so our thing! And aging, ugh! Who even wants to talk about it, at least I don’t. All in all, none of the above mentioned factors can completely be avoided so the least we can do to put the lost glow back to our skin is by providing it with the nourishment it needs.

Drinking lots and lots of water is a universal solution to almost all of our skin troubles and an essential part of natural skin care.
