Let’s assume, for a moment, that you’re already working with a great skin care regimen. You’re washing your face every day. You’re moisturizing with a product like Alo-Verix every day.

But your skin still isn’t everything you wanted it to be.

Fortunately for you, there’s a very easy, virtually cost-free solution that can make you look years younger in just one month.

Does it sound too good to be true? It’s not.

And you only have to take one step.

What is this magical step, you ask?

Increase the amount of water that you are drinking. Yahoo! Shine recently ran an article about water’s healing powers for the skin. Take a close look at the before and after pictures on the article—you’ll see the difference for yourself.

After her fourth week of increasing her water intake, she said, “I genuinely can’t believe the difference in my face. I look like a different woman. The dark shadows around my eyes have all but disappeared and the blotches have gone. My skin is almost as dewy as it was when I was a child. The transformation is nothing short of remarkable.

If you’re one of those people who doesn’t like water, try it with some lemon or sprigs of mint. If you just fail to drink it out of habit then think about getting a hard-sided Brita water bottle or something similar. Keep it with you all day—at your desk, as you go about your errands, whatever. You’ll find yourself reaching for it almost absent-mindedly, and you’ll get more water than you’ve ever dreamed of getting before. A really good water  bottle can hold up to 32 ounces, so getting the recommended 8 ounces a day and beyond is no problem at all.

Why not give it a try?
