How to beat acne with drinking water in 5 simple steps.

How to beat acne with drinking water in 5 simple steps.

Water is used by all the body’s organs, tissues, and cells to maintain proper functioning. So your largest organ, which is you skin, needs water too. It’s actual very simple science: Skin cells are made up of water, and it is necessary to keep these cells hydrated properly.

Step 1 – Replace all drinks with water as a base.
Replace all drinks with water.

Avoid ALL sodas. So not ONLY sugar containing sodas. ESPECIALLY light sodas. Artificial sweeteners are not kind to your skin. Because these diet beverages are bad for your gut and therefore will trigger skin disorders such as acne or rosacea that develop as a result of inflammation.
Sugar containing drinks causes cortisol, the body’s stress hormone, to soar. This triggers inflammation, which can spur a variety of inflammation-linked skin conditions to flare up from acne to even eczema.*

So, it doesn’t mean you can only drink water. It means you drink water as a base. (Read more in step 2).

Replace all drinks with water as a base

Step 2 – Add 1 super ingredient to your water.

Drinking ONLY water can be boring. If you add 1 super ingredient to your water, it’s not only tasty, but will help you to beat acne. These are some superfood ideas:

Water with 1 slice of lemon, max half a liter per day.

Hot tea with a slice of ginger, max half a liter per day.

Water with 2 strawberries for flavor.

Water with a handful crushed blackberries.

Hot tea with green tea, max 1 cup per day.

Add 1 super ingredient to your water

Step 3 – Make sure you drink 4 liters.

Not drinking enough water leads to a dehydrated skin and clogged pores.

Through hydrating skin, allowing the skin to retain moisture, helps the skin to flush out nasty toxins on the skin as well as in the body. Drinking at least 4 liters water per day is one of the best ways to flush out bodily toxins which cause acne. Furthermore, it will help to moisturize your skin.

Well moisturized skin allows the skin to maintain healthy skin cell rejuvenation and collagen production. This helps with acne healing and the reduction of inflammation from acne pimples and acne scarring on the skin.

Increasing your water intake to at least 4 liters per day helps reduce blood sugar levels too. As stated earlier, a high intake of sugar can lead to acne. Balancing your blood sugar levels through correct water consumption also helps to detoxify the skin.

PS: Don’t overdrink water! It’s bad for your skin and health if you overdrink water.

Make sure you drink 4 liters

Step 4 – Limit Alcohol to zero.

Alcohol directly affects your skin by causing dehydration and inflammation. Alcohol has several side effects that increase the risk of acne, including causing hormone changes, suppressing your immune system and increasing stress. The sugar in some alcoholic drinks increases the risk of skin damage and skin infections.

Limit Alcohol to zero

Step 5 – Eat water.

Wait what? Replace water extracting foods with foods which contain a lot of water. Think of Bok Choy, Cucumber, Tomatoes and lettuce.

Eat water

Final word.
Despite its many benefits, drinking water is not a cure-all for acne. It’s just 1 of the many things you must do to beat acne for good.
