I recently saw “Even the Rain” starring Gael García Bernal and Luis Tosar. It’s an amazing look at the making of a movie in Boliva through exploitation of the local population, who are in the midst of an uprise against the privatization of their water supply by large multi-nationals. The locals are forced to pay for their water, which the cannot afford. The irony of making their film about about Christopher Columbus’s voyage to the New World and the subjugation of the locals on the backdrop of the current water crisis makes for a very heart-felt concern for this beautiful Bolivian population.
Not a lot of urban free radical skin damage on their beautiful faces; however, it should cause one to pause when you reach for that fancy bottle of imported agua with a pretty label on it. Please be conscious about what you are supporting; your dollars speak loudly.
Water is Earth’s gift and is necessary for survival. It should be given freely, and not capitalized upon.
Our skin is made of about 90% water, so it is absolutely essential to drink plenty of water to maintain the normal functioning of all internal organs including the largest, our skin. Water helps to detoxify and revitalize the body and give us more energy. So, drink plenty of water – at least four sixteen ounce glasses per day.
If you don’t’ like drinking water, try this. Upon awakening, drink a tall glass of water without giving it a second thought. Do this after breakfast, after lunch, and after dinner. Continue this and you will find that you will begin to enjoy it and actually crave it. It worked for me!
Here’s to feeling beautiful in your skin!
