Any thought on Fluoride in water causing acne?

I had persistent acne for 6-7 years. Face never free of pimple.One goes away and another one or two comes up.Sometimes cystic.

Yesterday I found someone said that fluoride in the water causes acne. I gave it a try. I started drinking bottle water and wash my face with bottle water too.. and I notice that just within a few hours my face felt so smooth and not ‘ inflammed’ . This morning when I woke up the big one that was forming last night became a whitehead. I remember when I was traveling in Japan(  non fluoridated water country) my face is clear no matter what I eat but back to Singapore it became bad again. Same with when I stayed in US.

Am I too early to say that this is a cure for me? Anyone has similar experience?

And I found this link talking about this topic.

there is some debate as to whether hard water could also be a problem.. but they do put a lot of chemicals in our water.

if you do a search your find lots of old threads on the subject.
