Transcript for Woman Finds Fountain of Youth By Drinking 6 Bottles of Water a Day
I love "the jury's out." Is water the fountain of youth? We've all been chugging it all morning. I have to leave the desk right now. One woman says she looks a decade younger, thanks to drinking so much water. This woman had pictures to prove it. Take a look. 42-year-old sara smith claims drinking six bottles of water a day for one month, helped take ten years off her face. This is smith before. And this is her just 28 days later. Originally, she set out on her water challenge, in an attempt to help with migraines. But found it helped with so much more. She chronicled her journey for "the daily mail" and says, I'm feeling leaner and fitter, too, which is amazing since the only thing I changed is the amount of water I drink. We don't realize how powerful an impact it has on our bodies and our skin in particular. When you're more hydrated and when you have enough water in your system and in your skin, it has direct and indirect effects. You feel better. And when you feel better, you look better. Reporter: Smith was astonished by the results. After four week, she writes, I genuinely can't believe the difference in my face. I look like a different woman. My husband and friends tell me i look ten years younger. Who wouldn't want to dry something that gets incredible results. We want to bring in our chief health and medical editor, dr. Rich besser, to separate fact and fiction. What do you think about this woman's claim, her experience? Water is important. There's nothing our body regulates closer to water and salt. If you get dehydrated, your body will pull water from your skin. Everyone reaches for the bottle. When it does that, your eyes are going to look sunken, your skin is going to feel drier. You will look a lot older. But if you're not dehydrated and you drink a lot of extra water, it's going to send you to the bathroom. Aren't most of us normally dehydrated? People don't normally drink enough. It depends on the degree. If you're not feeling thirst, if you're not thirsty, you're probably not dehydrated. And you're not dehydrated to the point that you'll be pulling the water from your tissue. There's nothing to show that. I thought we did a report not too long ago that you could be in danger of drinking too much water. You -- it's pretty hard. Your kidneys do a very good job of filtering your water, making sure that doesn't happen. The elderly, young children, can drink too much water to the point where they're going to have a seizure. It's hard unless you have a mental illness to drink yourself to that point. It can help with snacking. If you're staying hydrated and drinking a lot of water, between meals, you're less likely to be hungry. I think there's all kinds of great reasons to drink a lot of water. And I drink water all the time. When you drink water, you're not drinking sodas and other things. But in terms of it making you truly look younger, I'm not sure if it's the lighting or the -- isn't that lighting in the bathroom better for everyone? Yes. That's my question for you, doctor. The lighting is definitely better in the bathroom. That's a scientific fact. How do you feel if you're not in love with drinking water. How do you feel about the pockets, the crystal light or -- they have the aspartame in it. You can add flavoring, a little lemon, a little lime. Do you hate those? I don't like aspartame, personally, I don't like the flavor. But it's better than going for sodas. Thank you so much, rich. If it makes you feel better, keeps you hydrated, it can't hurt. Thanks, rich. Coming up, look at those
