Is Your Water Bottle Aging You? Umm, Yes…

It’s tough to go outside these days without encountering something that could kill you, or something that could give you enough wrinkles to make it seem like death is nigh: you can file this water bottle news under the wrinkles category.

As this article in Ecouterre reveals:

“Experts are issuing a warning that drinking from water bottles could be the cause of unsightly premature wrinkles. But the accusation does not come from the potential BPA that the plastic bottle may contain, but instead the shape of the bottle itself. It seems woman across the country have become “victims” of deep wrinkles around their mouths, due to repeated pursing of the lips when taking hydrating swigs from their water bottles.”

The solution? “The doctors recommend avoiding water bottles and straws in general, opting for cups that don’t cause the mouth to continuously purse.”

Making the change isn’t so hard, but make sure you don’t sacrifice hydration on the go—it’s still important to get enough water each day (here’s a guide to help you calculate just how much you need).

Good news: your wine glass is still a perfect vessel.

    Sleeping on your side smashing the skin against the pillow is what causes wrinkles on the outer parts of your eyes and around the lips. You are lying on your skin with it scrunched up for hours vs. taking a drink out of a bottle that lasts less than 60 secs a time. I think the article missed the mark. Sleep on your back and drink lots of water!

    This is very interesting! Thanks for the tips, being P.E. teacher I always carry water around in a bottle but I think i’ll make extra effort to change my habits for future benefits. Thanks Charlottes Book.
