Well scientist have broken down their uses ranging from hydration to wrinkle removal.
Here is the break down of 5 of such beauty beverages you didn't know existed.
The 1907 water
With pH levels ranging from 7.8 to 8.2, this unflavored artesian water from New Zealand contains electrolytes that are supposed to help "strengthen the immune system, increase energy, and promote youthfulness" by mitigating the effects of stress, lack of sleep, and poor diet.
"It's from a pristine source, and it is naturally alkaline, which means it's free of harsh minerals," says dermatologist Jeannette Graf. "If one can drink enough of it, it can help raise the body's internal pH, decreasing acidity caused by stress, insufficient sleep, and refined foods and making skin look clearer, less puffy, and more radiant." The said quantity is "Three to four liters a day."
Sakara beauty and night waters
The alkaline Beauty Water is high in silica to "help your body form healthy connective tissue, plumping skin for the ultimate sexy glow," as well as anti-inflammatory rose water; the Night formula has chlorella, a micro-algae that encourages cell repair and detox.
"Silica does help with collagen formation to keep skin smooth and plump," says Brooke Alpert, a nutrition expert in New York City. "I don't know if the rose oil is present in large enough amounts to make a major impact, but it is certainly anti-inflammatory, so it makes sense that the body and skin could be positively affected."
Chlorella increases internal pH and oxygen levels, "speeding cellular repair for bright, healthy skin," says Graf. "It can also enter cells, bind to toxins, and drag them out, making every cell in the body function better." The ingredient gives the Night Water a slightly green quality, but the drink is pretty palatable as far as algaes go.
All beauty water
These stevia-sweetened waters "hydrate and nourish skin from within" with a mix of skin-friendly vitamins (A, C, D,E, B12, B6, B3, biotin), minerals (selenium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, zinc), and antioxidant green-teaextract.
"Drinking these ingredients is similar to taking vitamins," says Alpert. "All have proven benefits: Biotin strengthens hair and nails; C aids in collagen production; green tea fights aging free radicals." Although the intensely sweet waters claim to be calorie-free, she notes, the nutritional panel shows 7 grams of carbohydrates per serving, which equals up to 56 calories per bottle.
Water melon water
This cold-pressed watermelon juice made with watermelon flesh and rind as well as organic lemon, "maintains a healthy, youthful glow" with megadoses of electrolyte potassium, plus antioxidants vitamin C and lycopene and amino acid citrulline.
You can literally taste the rind, but the green flavor quickly turns supersweet. "Ingesting antioxidants can only help our bodies and skin," says cosmetic chemist Ni'Kita Wilson. "Citrulline can be converted by the liver to arginine, which plays a part in wound healing and thus skin repair."
Juice press anti-aging juice
Combines hydrating cucumber and a type of blue-green algae called e3live known to "increase energy, promote intestinal health, and enhance skin and hair."
Packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids, "e3live is a concentrated superfood that can truly boost internal alkalinity and stimulate microcirculation for skin that looks significantly brighter and rosier," says Graf.
It's loaded with antioxidants, adds Alpert, which quell inflammation and free-radical damage throughout the body. The taste, however, serves as reminder of what blue-green algae actually is: pond scum. No amount of cucumber freshness can mask its warm, earthy undertone.
