Water is not a skincare miracle drink

Water is not a skincare miracle drink because if it was, we wouldn’t have so many people complaining about having to go to the bathroom so much and still not getting clear skin.

Drink more water.

Google, Youtube, blogs will offer you this tip on how to get clear skin. But there’s a big misconception or understanding that drinking more water has a direct effect to clearing up your skin.

Before busting this myth, I am in no way advertising that one should give up on water because it isn’t a skin miracle. Water is good. I love water and I will never understand why people have to be reminded to drink water.

Now, off we go, myth busting.

Let’s first look at some of the benefits that water has on our body:

  • Assists in wound healing
  • Helps in getting rid of body toxins
  • Boosts energy
  • Helps with weight loss

What are the effects if we don’t drink enough water?

We gain water weight, become dehydrated, get headaches, feel weak and it also affects our mood and physical and mental state.

Water is nourishment. It is fuel for our bodies and along with other factors, it helps keep the body healthy to function properly.

By drinking water, you are giving fuel to your entire system and the organs to do their assigned tasks in keeping you moving and healing daily.

Drinking water will not add moisturize or change the texture of your skin. Big myth right here!

It will not clear up your acne either.

You are now asking yourself the question: What can water do for me and my goal to getting clear skin?

It will help to keep your body happy, healthy and functioning. In this way, you are helping your body do one of its basic functions which is to heal you. Heal away and prevent the inflammation and acne.

Think about it.

If you don’t drink enough water, your body becomes dehydrated and your organs will weaken and shut down. In turn, the body won’t be capable of functioning properly.

You cannot expect your body to heal your acne or skin dullness if it is too busy and stressing out over what to do if your organs start to fail.

Even with a healthy diet and a great skincare routine, if we do not care for ourselves from the inside, it will still greatly affect and show on our skin.

So, yes, water contributes to keeping your body nourished but it does not directly keep away or cure acne. It does not work like that.

Now that you know this, please, for the love of God, stop complaining why you’re peeing too much and not getting clear skin.
