Water Purge?

Recommended Posts

So, I'm pregnant (YAY!), and my midwife said I need to be drinking a gallon of water a day. I only ever drank water before anyway, but I drank probably 1 quart a day, MAYBE 2, so not very much. Would suddenly drinking a gallon every day make your skin "purge"? I've only read like 2-3 articles that confirm it and I'm just wondering. It's not terrible, it's just tiny bumps that fade in like 1-2 days, so it's weird, but kind of annoying.

Just curious if anyone has any insights. Thanks! :)

A gravid woman will have a surge of volatile hormones. I'd suspect that's causing this "purge". Water doesn't cause acne; if it did, everyone would have acne.


I drink half a gallon of water a day, it doesn't break me out. Congrats. :)
