*Question: *Does Drinking Water Help Prevent Acne?
Will drinking eight glasses of water each day keep my face clear?
*Answer: *The answer is no. Drinking water sounds good in theory, which is
likely why the belief that our bodies need eight glasses of water daily
continues to perpetuate. But the idea that drinking eight glasses of water
is essential for having clear skin and good health is not accurate. This
widely accepted reasoning has been debunked by the scientific community
because there is no evidence to back it up.

-Drink When You're Thirsty-

In a video clip posted on CBS News Web site, Dr. Stanley Goldfarb (one of
the researchers from the University of Pennsylvania who agrees that the
eight glasses a day theory is bunk) states, "If you're thirsty, drink, if
you're not thirsty, you needn't drink."

-Factors that Contribute to Acne-

Factors that can affect acne outbreaks include stress, hormone imbalances,
and digestive disorders.

-Drinking Water is Still Important-

Since we don't have to keep track of our daily water consumption or feel
guilty for not drinking enough water this doesn't mean water should be
eliminated from our diets. It is still important to drink water. Water is
one of the four basic elements afterall. Obviously, for anyone desiring a
healthier diet, water would be the preferred beverage choice over
caffeinated drinks
