... Except sweat isn't toxic. The skin doesn't secrete toxins when it can't get them out in peeing. Even if it did, that definitely would not cause acne, either.

The body is mainly water and most of the chem reactions in the body use water. also, cell turnover etc...increases and is more efficient as is the REST of your body when you get enuf water and since water keeps you hydrated it makes sense you'll have less oil on the skin/scalp too. Plus toxins can be released thru skin, pee is not the only way...But if your very dehydrated your health is compromised overall and of course your skin is NOT going to be functionaing at its peak. it's not that complicated. I know I look crappier and feel crappier overall when i don't drink enuf water...aim to drink enuf so that you pee clear, try for a liter a day then up to two/three and decrease if you feel overloaded.

Yes! When our bodies are dehydrated we can get rashes through the skin... our bodies are 75% water, even our bones are water, it helps to flush out toxicity...when you don't drink lots of water you sometimes get constapated :S. That contributes toxins to your body. That can show up in the form of acne or rashes.

Drinking water is essential for clean skin and your overall health. Water is essential for carrying waste material out of your body... and is quite possibly the single most important contributor to healing and preventing acne flare-ups. Water flushes these toxins out.

How much water should you be drinking every day? Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day for beautiful skin.

Your body is made up of 70 percent water. Water is literally your body's life force. It is involved in nearly every bodily process, including digestion, absorption, circulation and excretion.

Water is also the primary transporter of nutrients throughout your body. If not enough water is consumed, toxins can build up causing breakouts.

Without adequate water, we would poison ourselves with our own metabolic wastes. Your kidneys remove waste products that must be dissolved by water. So, by drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day, you are flushing out the toxins that would normally escape through the pores of your skin... thus preventing acne breakouts.

Your kidneys cannot function properly without enough water. When they do not work to capacity, some of the load is dumped onto your liver.

One of your liver's primary functions is to metabolize stored fat into usable energy for your body. But, if your liver has to do some of the kidney's work, it cannot work at full capacity. A liver that is not performing at its best can worsen acne because it cannot break down and clear excess hormones from your body.

Water helps maintain proper muscle tone, by giving muscles their natural ability to contract and by preventing dehydration. Shrinking cells are buoyed by water which plumps your skin and leaves it clear, healthy and resilient.

But spread drinking water through out the day as too much at one time can actually do harm to your body.

i watched a TV program the other day where it had these twins. One drank water excessively and the other had water when thirsty. Surprisingly there was no difference in hair, skin or even weight.

The conclusion was that the body needs water up to a certain level. Whatever it doesn`t need is excreted so drinking litres and litres of water only serves to make you go to the bathroom more often. The body can get water from fruit and vegetables as well as other sources. You`d have to work pretty hard to have bad skin due to drinking too few litres of water.

Only when the body is dehydrated does it suffer problems. The program also said that mineral water and tap water are basicaly the same and the only difference is the price!
