Red face *POO*

I was talking to my aunt and she asked me how much times a day do I go 'poo', I made this strange face at her and was like huh??? Then she said If I go poo alot (like 3 times a day) my face would look a little better. Well I dont go poo alot. I was wondering If other people with acne go 'poo' alot?
She said you should go poo alot to get all the stuff out your body.

( Sorry for the weird topic, You dont have to answer this question if you think its disgusting )

I think that if u drink alotta water, all the stuff in ur body will also go out and its better than forcing urself to "poo"

i used to go every 2-3 days. I thought that was normal. When i started eating better, and drinking water i started going every day, sometimes even twice a day. but i still have acne. i thought maybe it would help.

When I first got married, I began noticing how often my husband went #2. It was like every day, sometimes twice a day. I was shocked! My whole life, I've only gone a couple times a week. I can't even fathom going every day. Does that mean I don't eat right? I pee a couple times a day. I guess I drink more than I eat. But my husband does have perfect skin, though I think it's more genetic than poo-related. I really don't see how we could force ourselves to go more often without eating a lot more, and I think then we'd have acne and weight problems!

this topic has actually been brought up before. before i went on accutane, i "pooed" every 2, 3 days. while i was on accutane, i went every day. i though that was interesting...i'm still going every day, and my face looks pretty good. i don't really think it's a direct correlation, but whatever.

I dont think poo has anything to do with your acne, but how much you drink will defenitly help, I started drinking water like 2 years ago and only water i wouldnt even have a sip of soda, i drank like 8 bottles a day sometimes more and my face got a whole lot better, of course i break out but not like before, water really helps

How much you go #2 has to do with your diet, exercise and water intake.

People go anywhere from 3 times a day to twice a week. There is no normal in that regard. each person is different.

Going does rid your body of toxins, which can help to clear your skin.

A good product to help take toxins out is a good idea, I'm looking into that. People always say its from the inside that needs to be cleaned out which then of course promotes clear skin

I read somewhere that regularity helps to release hormones from your body as well. Taking antibiotics for about a year completely destroyed any last regularity I had, and I do eat a lot of vegetables and fruits (i mean A LOT). Right now I am taking fiber, p. husk, (morning and evening) to get back to normal.

Monroe, OF course going POO helps. Why on earth do you think water helps? HUH? water flushes toxins out of your system and clears it out and poo is where most of your toxins are being released!!!
