drinking water seems to clear my skin!

Has anyone noticed that drinking water every day clears your skin? Lately i notice if i don't drink water all day, i break out more. if i drink water all day, i feel like my skin clears over night!! Anyone else notice this???? The last few weeks, i drank ONLY WATER and my skin was sooo clear, and any existing acne cleared right up.....Yesterday; i had an iced tea craving, and i drank it most of the day and today i am all broken out! It is amazing! I feel like drinking water does more for you than anything else! Anyone else try this?

Re: drinking water seems to clear my skin!

I've noticed that too! Also, my skin - my whole body - feels and IS more hydrated (makes sense)...I was only drinking 1 litre of water per day for the past week (I got lazy), and I looked and felt horrible...So I upped my water to at least 2 litres a day and am feeling better, again! YAY FOR WATER!!

Re: drinking water seems to clear my skin!

I've only had one minor breakout post-accutane but drinking water all day has given me a much healthier glow. I cut out soda and most other drinks. I'll only have 1 cup of iced coffee in the morning and then it's water for the rest of the day.

Re: drinking water seems to clear my skin!

Yes i agree, If i drink say 8 glasses of water a day my skin does break out less and if i only drink a minimal amount of water and drink too much tea coffee etc i seem to break out alot more, I think the water may help to get rid of toxins

Yeaaaaa. My face has gotten soo much better. I stopped drinking soda. And I bring a poland spring bottle to school and refill it like 5 times. Water helps.

that's a good idea. Many people will buy a bottle of water and throw it away when it's finished. Not me. I always refill it multiple times per day whenever I'm around a "good" water fountain. I stress the word good because some of these water fountains out there are just .

Re: drinking water seems to clear my skin!

Amazing, isn't it? Such a simple thing, drinking water. I also found that exercise (enough for a good sweat) also cleared my skin - water+good circulation...helps alot!

Exclamation Re: drinking water seems to clear my skin!

Water helps me too. Just don't drink TOO much water at a time. I drank too much one time and got really sick (I drank like 7 glasses 20-30 minutes apart). I've heard that if you drink too much in one sitting, you can die. The water can swell your brain or something to that effect.

I noticed that my skin looked a million times better after I started exercising on a regular basis too.

Angry Re: drinking water seems to clear my skin!

This is very interesting. Everyone here seems to notice that water helps their skin a lot. My cold has almost totally died out and my skin is starting to breakout again. I don't know what it is, but its really ******* me off! I was wondering if it was the water, because I started drinking more water when I was sick, but I didn't drink any for about 48 hours or more. I do think I drink too much sugary drinks and not enough water at all. I am going to drink more water (at least five glasses a day) and see what happens. I am also going to stop using topicals when I go to sleep. I hate when I think my skin is getting better and then bang, it returns with a vengence! I think it has something to do with my diet though. I tried the milk thistle and my skin started getting oily, so I stopped, thinking that it may be the milk thistle and since then my skin's oil has increased more and more, especially when I was sick. Maybe now that my 20th birthday is on the way the acne is getting worse, since this usually happens, I don't know. I am sick of wondering what is making my acne worse and what makes it better. God damn this ****!
