And it makes you look better – dry body means dry skin. Today we have looked at ways to get your H20 and put lipsticks to the test.

- Press Water + Probiotics – buy now
Press have come up with some fantastic water based drinks that also contain probiotics – our healthy good bacteria which can have a positive role on gut health.
I tried the Strawberry and Dragonfruit which is 82.47% water, lemon juice, agave syrup, the fruit juices and probiotics. And it is delicious. Quite tangy, dry and really refreshing.
Just 63kcal and 14g sugar per 330ml bottle. A bit pricey at £2.99 but a great product and a lovely grown up drink.
- Soda Stream Spirit Classic machine – buy now
I had a Soda Stream back in the day when I was a kid and remember it all being really sweet, fizzy drinks. Now the Soda Stream is back and perfect for grown ups.
The Soda Stream Spirit Classic is a compact cordless machine that comes with a 1l bottle and the important cylinder that will make up to 60l of fizz. This turns the normal tap stuff into delicate effervescent water that tastes great. It's £99.99 but you'll never need to buy sparkling water or soda water (for your wine!) ever again.
I love this and it has encouraged me to drink more water. Plus it's fun to make!
Natural energy drink
- Purdey's Rejuvenate Natural Energy drink – buy now
Purdey's Rejuvenate is 46% carbonated spring water with grape and apple juice and botanical extracts – including Chinese ginseng that is said to help with brain function and reduce stress.
It's caffeine free but contains vitamins B and C that help reduce tiredness and fatigue. Plus each bottle contains one of your five a day. A sweet flavour with a slight herbal taste too.
I like it. A posh drink. But quite high in sugar – 21g per 330ml but just 99kcal and £1.59.
