No matter how expensive or effective the treatments and products you put onto your skin, they can’t affect the quality of your skin nearly as much as the things you put in to your body. On the other hand, the idea that drinking large amounts of water can meaningfully affect the level of moisture in your skin has been scientifically disproven. So what is the truth about the way that water intake affects your skin?

Water And Toxins

One of the major things that can cause disruptions in sebum production, acne, and other issues with your skin is a build up of toxins in the system. By being sure to drink a significant amount of water a day, you give your body all the liquids it needs to supercharge the circulatory system, and allow your body to flush out all of the toxins and other problematic materials that can build up. It can also do wonders for your kidneys, since your kidneys do the vast majority of the filtering that takes place inside of your body. And once those toxins have been removed, they’re no longer able to meaningfully affect the look and health of your skin.

Water And Nutrients

Much as water is the vehicle that carries and flushes away toxins and detritus from the circulatory system, helping skin stay clear and healthy, water is also the delivery system for vital vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that your skin so desperately needs to stay happy. Without an adequate intake of water, your body’s circulatory system will deliver those vital nutrients much more slowly, meaning that your skin is far more likely to look dull and lifeless, as well as have problems with breakouts and other skin issues.

Water And Skin Problems

While it’s true that drastically altering your water intake has not been proven to alter your skin’s moisture content in any meaningful way for people who have generally, normally dry skin, drinking larger amounts of water has been shown to be an effective treatment for people who suffer from certain skin disorders, such as psoriasis and eczema. Water helps flush away some of what causes the skin irritation, and provide much needed moisture to incredibly dry areas.

Water And Cosmetic Issues

Water has also been shown to help hydrate the dermis itself, which helps to eliminate dark circles and bags under the eyes by plumping that skin, and also filling in fine lines by making the skin more supple.
