Drinking Water to Clear Skin

Today I want to go more in depth with water. What I found in my research is that most people that have acne are dehydrated. When I had acne, I realized that I don't drink enough water and when I started drinking more my face became clearer and clearer.

One of the biggest things that you can do if you have acne is to just drink enough water. You need to flush out the toxins and detoxify your blood flow. It also helps the nutrients and minerals to your skin cells.

As a general rule, you're going to drink 50% of your body weight in ounces of water each day. If you're working in a warm climate or your working out, you probably should be drinking 60% of your body weight in ounces.

Let's say you weigh 150 pounds, you want to be drinking 75 ounces each day. If you have a bottle that says 30 ounces, you got to drink 2 ½ of those whatever it may be. If you're 100 pounds, you should drink 50 ounces each day. So just divide your body weight in half and drink that much in ounces each day.

The next thing I want to talk about is tap water. It is something I recommend that you don't drink. To be honest, it would be better if you didn't shower or wash your face with it. What I do recommend is either purified or spring water.

There are different types of purified water, and the real good ones costs over a thousand dollars, but, over your lifetime that water purifier is way worth it. You get high quality water every day and you're not putting poison into your body.

There reason why I don't want you to drink tap water if you have acne is because it contains sodium fluoride. This is a toxic chemical that's not good or your body. The second thing that you don't want in your body is chlorine (like pool chlorine). The third thing is that traces of metals can also be found in it such as iron. The fourth thing and probably the worst thing about tap water besides fluoride is traces of pharmaceutical drugs. This is ridiculous because when you are not prescribed on a drug and you're putting these drugs in your body - it's not good for you because your body is going to react to those and that will probably cause more breakouts, health problems. You could damage your liver, your colon, your adrenal glands, limb systems, circulation, heart, lungs, etc. The problem though is that tap water is the most readily available water.

I personally recommend spring or purified water. Like I said, the purification systems out there are literally a thousand dollars in price. But you can buy spring water in gallons - I bought myself for $0.80 a gallon and that's pretty good. The only problem when you buy gallons of water is that it's in the plastic. The plastic contains something that's called PVA - a chemical that gets in the water. So even when you're drinking purified water out of plastic, you're getting PVA into your water. So it's best to drink your water in a glass.

Doing this will help your health over-all in your lifetime and make your feel better and stay healthy with clear skin. You will see your skin clear up with enough water intakes. Hope you've learned something from this and put it to use. You can either use it or lose it.
