Ever feel like you’re drowning in the amount of water you’re supposed to be drinking? Well, same! But what if we told you that while you drink those eight glasses a day, you could also be beautifying your skin and keeping your health in check?
You may have heard some of the talk about “beauty water” and the benefits that come with drinking it. But what does that even mean, and what exactly constitutes a beauty-enhancing water?
BELLA is dishing on our favorite H2O, New Zealand-based 1907water, and how it can naturally enhance your overall health and beauty routine.
In New Zealand’s remote central plateau, deep in the alpine forests of the Kaimanawa Ranges, the most natural filtration process begins. Melted snow and rainwater travel through naturally filtering layers of volcanic rock and sandstone, picking up all the goodness from the rock minerals. The uncontaminated water finally arrives into a vast 50,000-year-old aquifer, 680-feet deep, where it rises under its own pressure to the surface.
It’s here that the company bottles nature’s remedy to the modern world. Containing a naturally high alkalinity, 1907water helps to balance the acidity levels in our bodies caused by stress, poor sleep, and diet. This water is not only good for you, it’s also naturally delicious. The perfect combination of high alkalinity and lower mineral content creates a softer, sweeter, and silkier taste.
1907water is a family-owned company that first began bottling water in 2000. In 2012, the company rebranded as 1907water as a tribute to the pioneers who first began bottling water that year in the small town of Paeroa, New Zealand.
So, what is alkaline water, you ask? In a nutshell, water with a pH above 7 is considered alkaline. There are many competitive waters on the market that have been manufactured or enhanced to be alkaline, but 1907water naturally sits at a consistent 8.0.
The complexities of the nine-step, ultra-purification process and the negative ionization needed to create alkaline water could make your head spin. What we can tell you is that 1907water stays as natural as possible and is quite fortunate that nature has provided such a high-quality water source in Paeroa, a town known for its beauty and purity.
THE BEAUTY BENEFITS
Our skin is an organ made up of cells, and cells are made up of water. If your cells are getting an ample amount of water, they function properly. Alkaline water is more easily absorbed by the body, which means alkaline water drinkers are better hydrated around the clock. This ultra-hydration is a key element in achieving beautiful, healthy, younger-looking skin.
Hydration helps your skin produce more moisture and elasticity, both of which fight signs of aging and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pores, and puffiness. In addition, alkaline advocates believe in its proposed health benefits, such as antioxidants that absorb more quickly into the human body, colon-cleansing properties, immune system support, and other detoxifying properties, including weight loss and cancer resistance. With a naturally high alkalinity, 1907water also helps to balance the high acidity levels in our bodies caused by stress, poor sleeping habits, and dietary patterns.
As if hydration and beauty boosts aren’t appealing enough, 1907water is also environmentally conscious, made from 100% recycled materials, and their bottles are 100% recyclable. There are so many packaging options on the market at the moment, yet many recycling centers aren’t equipped to process some of the more popular types, like boxed waters or plant-based bottles and caps, meaning much of it ends up in landfills. Until recycling centers are able to recycle absolutely all of these materials, 1907water has no hesitation in claiming to have the best possible packaging on the market. All of their bottles are BPA, BPS, BHA, and BHT free, so you never have to worry about anything harmful leaching into your water.
We think it’s safe to say that drinking water that does more than simply hydrate is a lot more appealing than chugging through your tap or basic bottled water. So, before you buy into the latest beauty fads and health kicks, start with drinking your daily eight ounces of water—and make sure it’s the 1907water brands.
