The blossom lounge x bkr Beauty Water Challenge


I made it! It wasn’t easy, and there were times that I slipped, but I finally made it to the end of my challenge.

I’ve posted a few times regarding this challenge, but just to refresh you, the challenge was to drink 5 bottles of water per day from my fancy little bkr bottle provided by blossom lounge.

To recap, my previous posts are here and here

Seems easy right? Well for a non-committal water drinker like myself, this challenge started off as painful. I really had to keep my bottle with me at all times, or I would find myself at 9:00pm with 4 bottles to go!

The bottle is super light weight so I could easily throw it into my purse, yoga bag or gym bag and it didn’t feel like a heavy burden.

As I moved through the challenge it got a little easier every day. The bathroom breaks didn’t seem to lesson until the 3 week mark, but when they did it seemed like the challenge had made a real difference in my life. Having the water bottle with me at all times started to feel natural. After the first couple of weeks I changed up my meal time routine as well and had water with my breakfast, lunch and dinner instead of making myself another drink.

I have to admit that it took me a while, but drinking water started to feel less like a challenge and more like something I naturally did.

Another big difference was how I felt when I didn’t drink enough water! Before the challenge I hardly drank water at all, and it didn’t seem bother me. Once I got into this challenge I felt very dehydrated when I didn’t drink water often enough. That told me what a big part of my life my water intake had become, and how dehydrated I really was before all of this started!

I took a photo of me before the challenge started, mid-way through the challenge, and at the end of the challenge to see if there was a change in my skin. I was really skeptical about this because I had always heard that water made a huge difference in a persons complexion, but I didn’t know this to be true.

I was pretty surprised to see a difference in my skin! My face really seemed to have a lot more colour to it, and overall I looked much more awake and hydrated. I looked and felt a lot healthier than I expected! The results were strong enough that I’m definitely going to continue drinking water at this pace. The good news is that it won’t seem so much like a challenge anymore.

It’s hard to explain what a difference drinking this much water has done for me – you really need to try it yourself! I was always skeptical about the results people said that drinking water would do for them health-wise and beauty-wise until I tried it myself. I think the results would definitely vary from person to person, but the results could only be positive with this type of challenge!
