If there’s one thing my mother asks me every time I speak to her, it’s “Are you drinking enough water?” If I happen to mention that my skin is looking less than stellar, she’s quick to remind me to drink the recommended eight ounces. I know I should drink more water and that it’s good for my skin but I’m often too lazy. But for the last six months I’ve been making a concerted effort to keep a water bottle on hand and in that in that time I’ve noticed a big change in my skin. Of course I still get breakouts, but I can always tell when I haven’t been drinking enough water. My skin just starts to look a little dull and blotchy.
Given my newfound appreciation for water, you can understand my interest in a bottled water that is supposed to be even better for your skin and is used in Dior’s new Diorsnow skincare collection. The water, Icelandic Glacial, comes from Iceland’s Ölfus Spring, which was created 4,500 years ago during a volcanic eruption and remains one of the world’s largest springs. The Diorsnow collection is a brightening line that includes a BB cream, mask, eye treatment and more. According to the Scientific Communication Director for Dior, Edouard Mauvais-Jarvis “Icelandic Glacial Water has proven in our labs its power not only to counteract the production of melanin in skin cells, but also to act in favour of all skin transparency features.”
After trying the water for a few days, I can’t say I noticed a difference in my skin. That said, if I’m going to grab a bottle of water, I’d happily swap one with potential good side effects for regular Poland Springs. What do you think? Do you believe that natural spring water is better for you than plain old tap water?
