      I have now read a bit about NIOD and can't wait to try it, the reason being is that it improves the health of the skin (eg improves blood micro-circulation in the skin etc). I keep checking the website but still nothing there with now only five days to go. Is this a regular thing that a new brand is being introduced, they put it online at the last moment like a TSV?
      ps: the packaging does look Perriconesque this put me off a bit as I reacted to Perricone products

      Save yourself a shed load of money. Quit sugar and drink San Pellegrino/ Badoit mineral water daily. I've done this for the past 10 months (Christmas celebrations excepted) and my skin just glows now. Skincare routine is now quite basic - cleanser, toner sometimes and moisturiser twice a day. If my skin is feeling a little dry I add a couple of drops of rose oil. I use Kiehl's basic Ultra Facial range so no gimmicky anti-ageing stuff. No serums, eye creams, neck creams etc.

      No amount of expensive skincare (especially those that claim Holy Grail status) will improve your skin if you 1. Smoke 2. Sunbathe/sunbed 3. Drink alcohol frequently 4. Eat crap refined/ processed food full of sugar 5. are dehydrated (we don't drink enough - we easily confuse thirst signals with hunger so eat more instead of drink)

      That's my opinion anyway but the significant improvement of my skin speaks for itself.

      This brand sounds like another lot of the Emperor's new clothes

      I think that I would like to try San Pellegrino/ Badoit mineral water and I see that it's carbonated. Just had a quick search on Google and see it has quite a few minerals in it. Just one question, I thought that the carbonated water was not very good for the stomach lining and increases stomach acidity? I am currently around three weeks into no sugar (fruit permitted) and no caffeine so if I add the above mentioned water it may improve my chances for a better skin (I don't smoke and don't drink and try to get my beauty sleep when I can) but guilty as charged when it comes to sunbathing.

      Talking about skin care products I have come across a brand that does improve skin health it really does (Strivectin) but is on the expensive side and NIOD is more affordable (providing it works).

      Problem with any beauty or dietary advice - if you want to find a negative advice about something, you can find it... and if you want to find a positive advice, you will also find it. It's confusing and infuriating. I always go back to that old advice "everything in moderation". And Badoit in particular is only mildly sparkling - no aggressive bubbles, if you go for the green bottles (the red bottles are more conventionally sparkling). I tend to alternate it with filtered tap and sparkling supermarket own brand. The best thing is to try... see if it suits you, and go from there. Only you will be able to see or feel if it's doing what you expect it to do...

      I like mineral water, and San Pellegrino is one of my favourites, but I read that a lot of these bottled waters have a high sodium content and as I have high blood pressure that does not seem like a good idea to drink gallons of the stuff, as much as I would like to, I presume tap water is not so bad, but perhaps it is? Am sure red wine is okay though

      I've been drinking at least 2 litres of supermarket brand sparkling water a day for about ten years (17p per 2 litre bottle), and I feel much better for it. Where I used to have coffee I now usually drink a glass of water. I sleep better, I eat less, I'm much less tired during the day and the IBS that plagued my life has all but disappeared.

      Is sparkling water really bad for you?

      Badoit has 11 times as much salt as tap water but San Pellegrino only has twice as much. Other brands have less.

      There's around 4mg of sodium in 100g of red wine.

      Tap water has traces of prescription drugs, lime and rust from the pipes in it and I wouldn't advice to drink it.

      Also industrial effluents according to regional tests I read recently. I hardly ever drink tap water nowadays, I drink sparkling and I give my dogs and cats still bottled water, particularly as one of the dogs already has chronic kidney problems. Well if I don't want to drink tap water why would I give it to those I love?
