Could you survive only using 40 litres of water a day?

The Body Shop have teamed up with WaterAid this Christmas and for every selected gift purchased it will provide a whole family in Ethiopia with safe water for a day.

Their goal is to provide 1000 families with safe water over the next ten years. 

Can you imagine not have safe water to drink or wash with? How hard it must be?

We take water for granted, if you think during the course of a normal day what you use it for: drinking, a bath or shower, brushing your teeth, washing up or using a dishwasher, doing your washing, we rely on water.

I challenge you to see if you could survive only using 40L of water a day, that’s two jerry cans. I am going to try this for a day next week to see how I get on myself, I would love to know if any of you give it a go!

The average person in the UK uses 150L a day! A bath can use up to 80L, but imagine if you didn’t have such a luxury, would you be able to cope?

I am always reviewing what I put on my skin to try and help with spots, anti ageing etc but it is also important to think about what you are putting into your body. I am not the best person to talk about food as I could live off junk food but one thing I do is I make sure I drink enough water.

It is so important to keep hydrated, not only does it help with your skin and nutrition but I find it helps with my migraines.

I have recently been drinking Deeside water during the day whilst I am at work to see if it really makes a difference. Apart from feeling hydrated and not feeling so headachy I wanted to see if it helped my skin. I drank this water for two weeks and surprisingly enough it did help my complexion. My face hasn’t been so dry and I feel a lot better in myself as well as looking healthier! 

Deeside water is marketed as being one of the purest bottled waters. I know a lot of water you buy has had chemicals and all sorts added but I think because this particular brand is so thorough with how it is produced that it really does help. It is interesting to read this page on their website:
