How Much Water Should You Drink for Clear Skin?

04, April 2014

I know my posts recently have been about keeping your skin healthy, but youthful skin is something that many of us take for granted. I'm guilty of not getting in eight 8-ounce glasses daily, although that is very detrimental for 0ur health. Why is this a bad thing? We often find ourselves replacing our water intake with sugar-laden drinks that can cause breakouts, uneven skin tone, excess water storage, and cavities. While it may be cheaper to grab a soda or juice at a conventience store or vending machine, you should aim to always have a bottle of water on hand.  

How Much Should I Drink?

I attended a pageant workshop this past fall where the owner of Complete Physique, Nancy Bond, was a key speaker. She has coached many girls to the Top Ten at Miss USA and Miss Teen USA. She recommends drinking at least a gallon of water a day for optimal hydration.

It may seem like a lot, but hydration is key to not only making sure your body is functioning properly, but also in removing harmful toxins from your body. While you may begin to break out when you initially increase your water intake, these are simply impurities being flushed from your body. Within a week you should notice clearer, more radiant skin.

What about flavored water?

Flavored waters such as Propel and Tonic Water can make hydrating more palatable, but beware of additives that can cause you to break out and retain water. While Propel is out of the question, look for sparkling water or tonic water with natural flavors and no artificial dyes or flavoring. If you cannot find natural tonic waters, consider flavoring plain tonic or sparkling water with fresh lemon or lime slices.

How much is too much?

While a gallon a day is the recommended intake of water to keep your system performing at its peak, it is possible to drink too much water. If you consume too much water, or too much at one time, you risk low blood pressure, stomach pains, and the inability of your system to absorb nutrients from the food you consume. It is best to sip water throughout the day, and I have even observed girls who simply aim to drink a set amount of ounces in an hour, which adds up over the course of the day.

Consuming too much water at one time can lead to discomfort and a feeling of being too "full." However, a benefit from being properly hydrated? You are less likely to over-eat at meals because you are not confusing thirst with hunger. I hope you girls can learn from this and stay properly hydrated for clear, beautiful skin. While it may take a while to get acclimated to drinking this much water, I promise it is to your benefit to have clear, glowing skin!
