While being well hydrated is no cure for acne, it does help out.

i would think drinking lots of water would help keep the toxins moving out of our bodies, an of course toxins attribute to acne.

water certainly helps w/ acne. Dont let anyone tell u differently. First off, water helps with the effectiveness of ur immune system..allowing ur white b. cells to react faster, and better to acne bacteria.

Second Why do u think doctors tell u to drink 8 glasses of water daily? It helps to keep ur body healthy..if ur not gonna do it for ur skin, do it to keep the colds away laugh.gif

Thirdly, like sadcaroline said, it flushes the toxins out of ur body. Its a complicated system, how acne forms, i cant really put it in words as if only read other posts regarding acne/toxins.

maybe someone can shed some light on this topic clearly? smile.gif

While water isnt nearly enough to 'cure' acne, it certainly helps..its the fine line between being 99% clear and 100%.

WATER HELPS EVERYTHING!!!!

some people see more change than others

The change you will see depends on what you used to drink.

I went from drinking a 6-pack of coke a day and no water

to

drinking 4 bottles of water a day and only 1 soda

I saw a BIG IMPROVEMENT!!!

of course, if you're already drinking lots of water, drinking twice that won't make much of a difference to you.

even if it doesnt help your face, its a healthy choice to make.

go from 2 cokes and 1 bottle's of water to 4 bottles of water and 1 coke.

This is ridiculous. What kind of "toxins" are you referring to and how do these "toxins" cause sebum excretion. Gimme a break.

I feel the "no more bs about acne being caused by liverstones" revolution upon us.

Dr. Ruth Kava, Director of Nutrition at the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH), thinks that the origin of "eight cups a day" may be a misinterpretation of statements in physiology textbooks about total bodily fluid requirements being eight cups per day. This "fluid" however, can come from food, drink, and metabolism byproducts, not necessarily from drinking eight cups of water.

I drink about half a gallon a day... as long as you don't drink an extremely large amount , only good could come from it.

I drink a lot of water, but my acne is independent of how much water I drink.

I personally think it helps a lot. If I don't get at least 2 L/day my skin tends to breakout more often. I also think regular exercise helps too =D

Yup it helps, for some reason I'm finding it hard to guzzle enuf water but when i do it clears my clogged pores by 60% and my skin is not oily but when i don't drink about 2 3 liters per day i have more blackheads, very mild breakouts, but breakouts nonethelss and oilier hair.

for me,

plenty of water + healthy diet + good mild cleanser and exfoliant = clear-ish skin.

I've been drinking tons of water with Lemon juice for about a month and I see no change whatsoever. I started using Sage 4% BHA and that's helping unclog my pores.

For me, the addition of SA 2% into my regimen helped me unclogg some pores.

I had this st. ives apricot scrub, but right now i have too many active pimples to be scrubing that crap on my face.

My face did feel smooth after one use, but i dont think its good for active acne.

I know what you mean, some scrubs are so abrasive.....

Heres what I use:

http://www.mankind.co.uk/ProductDetails.asp?ProductID=21256

its pricey but oh-so mild yet very effective, i'v tried them all and I wouldn't use anything else, after 2 weeks of using it my skin stopped producing excess oil its as if it "soaks it up".

And I get my cleanser from the same place, which is also very gentle as it is specially formulated for acne prone skin

http://www.mankind.co.uk/ProductDetails.asp?ProductID=22283

Again.......quite pricey but I make 1 bottle last a looooong time.

The key with any scrub is: DON'T SCRUB TOO HARD!!!

If your body cannot pass out enough toxins (in the toilet coz of constipation or your body's metabolism is too slow), it will expel the toxins through your skin, hence sweat, which causes pimples to form if not scrubbed properly.

water helps in regulating your metabolism and bowel movements.

I know this works (for me), but i also wish i knew exactly WHY.

maybe its a chain reaction.....

if the rest of your body is healthy then it will show in your skin.
