What Beyoncé does every single day

Beyoncé is really into health and fitness. And yes, she has a chef make her and her family nutritious meals. But not everyone can afford to pay a live-in cook $7,500 a month, so luckily she has shared something else she does that doesn’t have a high price tag. It’s drinking water; lots and lots of water.

Queen Bey previously told Vogue: “I try to take care of myself, drinking at least a gallon of water with lemon a day.” 

The “Formation” singer’s tip about drinking tons of water for great skin is something a lot of other celebrities preach as well. But is a gallon a day too much or just the right amount?

You should drink lots of water, but should you consume that much?

Drinking enough water is essential to not only staying hydrated but keeping your body functioning properly.

Healthline noted that “water is involved in managing your body temperature, carrying nutrients and oxygen to your cells, and protecting vital organs and tissues.” However, just how much a person should drink on a daily basis depends on the individual.

Most people follow the recommendation of drinking eight, 8-ounce glasses of water a day, which is about half of what Beyoncé consumes. The amount of fluid a person really needs can vary and depend on things like their activity level.

Healthline also stated that “there is very limited research to show that drinking more than your hydration requirements benefits your health.”

While Bey’s makeup artist, Sir John, believes drinking a good amount of water can help your skin look and feel better he said another beauty tip that can give you great skin like the star is “intense exfoliation.” According to Sir John, “exfoliating twice a week renews skin and brings out the best possible complexion in any skin type.”

For his famous client, Sir John uses “a fruit enzyme glycolic peel that enhances cell turnover and reveals clear radiant skin.”

Something else Sir John has told Beyoncé and says everyone should do every single night is wash your makeup off before going to bed. In an interview with Elle he stressed: “Always take off makeup at night. It doesn’t matter if you’re dead tired or drunk, take your makeup off before bed.”
