I Drank a Gallon of Water Every Day for a Week


One fine morning, at the elite hour of 3 a.m., I’m lying in bed browsing through YouTube –– mainly skin care videos that I know I’ll never follow but watch anyway –– when a certain video catches my eye: “I drank a GALLON of water EVERY DAY for a WEEK | weight loss + before & after results.” The thumbnail boldly claims that the creator lost 6 whole pounds just from drinking a gallon of water every day. My first thought was, “Girl, if I knew it was that easy I would have hopped on the water train ages ago.” 

On campus I always carry my handy dandy Camelbak water bottle and drink around one to two liters a day. However, being at home is a whole other story. Especially during breaks, my middle name is lazy — I drink one glass of water per meal, which is only around two glasses for me since I wake up at noon –– or, “More like 2 p.m.,” according to my mom. So, I thought, why not try what the YouTuber did and see what happens? 

Day one: I started by recording how my face looked, how dry my skin felt and what my weight was. When I wake up in the mornings, my skin usually feels super tight, my nose is often flaky and my lips are almost always chapped. This week, my acne was worse than it normally is as I had just tried out a new “organic” moisturizer which caused me to break out on my cheeks and forehead.
