You have got to try this!!!
I have heard it all, but I was not prepared for this one! You literally dunk your face in sparkling mineral water! I have to say, after a late night that does sound like a refreshing way to start your day.Women in Japan and Korea swear by this. By washing your face with sparkling mineral water, you can revitalize your skin and achieve a radiant healthy glow. Several other benefits include firming and tightening the skin, exfoliating and removing dead skin cells, cleansing the pores and delivering oxygen to your skin giving your skin a healthy youthful look.
If you have sensitive skin this may not be for you as it can create a little tingle. Only try this once or twice a week. The best results come from mixing equal parts of sparkling mineral water and purified water in a bowl large enough to put your face into. This would be the “dunking” technique. If that is too dramatic for you it also works by splashing the mixture on your face as if you were rinsing your skin. I of course opted for the dunking technique. Go big or go home right!
I mixed 16.9 oz of S. Pellegrino with an equal amount of natural spring water in a large mixing bowl. Then I held my breath and dipped my face into the mixture for about 15 seconds.
After giving this a try I would have to say this was definitely an experience! It did make my skin look brighter and more radiant as well as a nice tightening and firming effect. My pores did appear smaller but what was most impressive to me was how soft my skin was after trying this. This technique is not for everyone and you might want to make sure you blow out of your nose if you do the dunk technique or you may find the bubbles going up your nose quite uncomfortable. Otherwise a less dramatic way would be to just splash you face AFTER you cleanse your skin. Would I do this again you ask??? Heck yeah! It is quite an experience. What we won’t do in the name of beauty right?!
