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

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

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
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.

|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.|
|New research from Dr. H. Valtin of Dartmouth Medical School indicates there is little scientific evidence to support the theory that a human should consume at least eight cups of water a day under normal circumstances.|
|Drink too much and the benefits may be outweighed by the diluting of salts within your body. While drinking eight cups may not do any harm, it is unnecessary for most people and can put an increased strain on the kidneys if done too quickly.|
There is mixed opinion about the eight glasses thing...so thought I would post the less common viewpoint.

|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|

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