The Nicole Code: Sipping Beauty

Water is synonymous with beauty. Beauty cannot exist without water literally- pretty much all products ever have some water in them. Do you know what else cannot exist without water? Any form of life.


Staying hydrated is essential to having great skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body and also the last organ to get any water, so if you aren’t drinking enough there simply won’t be any leftover after all the other organs to get to your skin sadly.


I’m aware that there are people out there who have fantastic skin and they exist on juice and coke (boooooooooo! We hate you!) but they are few and far between. With most of us dehydration shows- in breakouts, dull lacklustre skin, dryness and lines around the eyes and mouth. Science and Google tell me that men should consume about 3 litres of water a day, and women 2.2 litres. Food contains water, so on average we are looking at about drinking 2.8 and 2 litres respectively.


However, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I would like to refer you to some key evidence that drinking 3 litres of water is ideal.

If this isn’t a poster ad for proper hydration, I don’t know what is. She looks at least 10 years younger in 30 freaking days. There’s clearly a significant reduction in lines, her eyes look more alert and her skin looks more radiant. There is no magic potion anyone can use to achieve the same result. Except surgery maybe. But that’s so painful and stuff.


After reading this article, I am now on a 30 day challenge of 3 litres of water PLUS 1 litre of green tea (your girl has ZERO CHILL.)  I usually do 2 anyways so I thought moving up 2 litres would not be too difficult. LIES! The endless dashes to pee are killing me! But its so worth it I think.


Join me folks! Do a 30 day 3 litre water challenge and see how you feel. And please let me know how it goes.


P.S- #thenicolecoderecommends drinking beautiful spring water when you can such as Ragolis, Gossy or Lasena. The same price as your usual big brands but it comes from nature and not a lab.


Everything beautiful.
