Bottled Water Causes Wrinkles and Makes you Look Old!
So you want to be hydrated to look young? Drinking bottled water all day can cause wrinkles around you lips and sourounding areas more than if you were a three pack a day smoker! Now we need wrinkle free water bottles
Water is touted by many as the world's healthiest drink.
Some call it the secret to losing weight; others say it can be cure-all for things like dry skin, hair and nails, but one doctor says drinking bottled water could actually be like smoking three packs of cigarettes a day.
According to D.C. dermatologist Dr. Marilyn Berzin, dozens of women have come in puzzled by lines and wrinkles around their lips.
It's a condition termed "smoker's lips" because of the similar pattern of wrinkles found on the faces of long-term, heavy smokers.
But many of the women have never smoked a day in their life.
Instead, they're drinking from water bottles.
"When you're drinking from a water bottle, you're pretty much making the same face as you are when you're smoking a cigarette," said Berzin.
Berzin said that over time that face creates permanent lines.
People who drink from water bottles with either sport or straw tops or nozzles, consistently, all day long, for about two years, will start to develop noticeable smokers lips, according to Berzin.
And it's not just older people.
Berzin said she has had patients as young as their 30s.
Berzin recommended that water drinkers use wide-mouthed bottles or cups, allowing the upper lip to stay relaxed while drinking.
