Tips to Make Your Skin Winter Ready
Here's the thing, from buying expensive creams to getting even more expensive treatments, us ladies have tried virtually everything to get our skin looking and feeling right. And frankly, we're sick of it all leading nowhere. It's all getting to be a little too expensive and extremely discouraging.

But not to worry ladies, there might be a silver lining to all our woes after all and SURPRISE -- it's not as hard to obtain as we may think. According to Refinery29, Alicia Yoon of Korean beauty site Peach and Lily revealed that carbonated mineral water and its effervescent advantages may actually be the secret to firmer, plumper skin.

Yoon explained to Refinery29 that some spas in Korea have used carbonated mineral water to treat skin.

So you might be asking yourself "how does it work?" The mineral water helps keep the cells between collagen fibers strong, assisting in overall firmness and plumpness of skin. "The mineral content mixed with the carbonated water is what is supposed to help deliver the benefits beyond that of mechanical sparkling water cleansing the skin," says Yoon.

  • Do once or twice a week for effective use
That's all there really is to it! For your next nighttime routine, try out this unique, super simple method.
