Acne can be likened to a lion who strikes after observing a calf with a bad limp. Acne is an opportunistic attacker. If acne fought you in a boxing match, it would in fact hit you while you were down. It shows up when the internal environment of the body becomes sufficiently prone and vulnerable to attack.
Under the right conditions, acne will slip into the doorway unannounced. Quality water will keep acne on the outside looking in. Drink plenty of water in your battle with acne.
Let’s face it, even in the absence of scientific evidence, a major clue of the importance of water to our survival stems from the fact that water makes up two thirds of the body. Hint-hint! Water will greatly improve your ability to fight off and resist acne.
By the way, busy day at work today? So busy that you didn’t even pause to gulp down a drink of water? When you neglect to drink, the water in your body decreases, causing a decrease in your blood volume. When your blood volume decreases to a dangerous level, the thirst control center in your brain, the hypothalamus, gets triggered into action. Ever find yourself overcome by that “thirsty feeling?” That’s the hypothalamus demanding that you quench the bodies thirst.
Consider this fact… a very important point. Whenever you get that “thirsty feeling” you’re already dehydrated. Here’s why you need to be aware of this important point. You tend to only drink enough to “quench your thirst.” But you really need to drink much more in order to increase your blood volume. So, if you’re thirsty, drink lots and lots of water.
