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. If you want to get clear skin and get rid of acne, it is important to understand why drinking more water is important, but it is not a skincare miracle.

Drink more water

Google, Youtube, and blogs will offer you this tip on how to get clear skin. There is a big misconception or understanding that drinking more water has a direct effect on 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 very good for your body and well-being.

Now, off we go, myth busting.

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

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

Effects of Not Drinking Water

When we do not drink enough water, we gain water weight, become dehydrated, get headaches, and 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.

Water and Skincare Goals

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

The answer is that 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 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.

Water is not a skincare miracle drink. It will not clear up your skin or get rid of acne but it will keep you healthy and happy throughout your life. To get clear skin and achieve your skin goals, the proper way is to have a good skincare routine and stick to it, get facials and medical treatments when needed and eat a healthy and balanced diet.
