I wanted to hear about any experiences people have had with drinking more water and improving their skin. I have a really hard time drinking water but do believe that it may help with a lot of skin problems.

I definately feel that drinking water helps the body's, and by extension, the skin's ability to detoxify. Yes, it can be hard to drink the 8-10 glasses a day, but remember that herbal tea, juices and soups also count. If your trouble is that water is bland, you can try making your favourite herbal tea extra strong, chilling it and serving it with sparkling water(also a great diet trick).

That's a great suggestion, thank you! I think you also bring up a good point of finding a way to make the water not so bland. I really need to work on that and get my water intake up. :)

I think drinking more water does help my skin, but eating foods that have a high "water content" works just as well! I remember watching Oprah and Dr. Oz said that not drinking water doesn't mean that your skin won't be hydrated 'cause a lot of the foods you eat can contain water (i.e. lettuce and fruits!).

IME, the best way to keep myself drinking water all day long is to get myself a giant glass or a sport bottle and fill it up as soon as I get up, and make sure to carry it around with me. You find yourself naturally reaching for it until it's empty, and then you just fill 'er up again.
I like to add a little lemon juice (organic, in a glass bottle, easier for me than squeezing an actual lemon each time, lol) to liven 'er up.
It becomes habit after a couple days and seems much less like an obvious chore.

I also agree that drinking water is very important for our skin and overall well being. I notice a different when I don't drink enough water. That's why I always try to keep water within reach.

When I started drinking more water within a week or two I noticed my skin looked more healthy.

I definitely know that drinking water helps me out. The one thing I do every morning is to drink one giant mug of warm water in the morning, before eating (but after brushing my teeth!), wait about 30 minutes before eating. When I say giant mug, I mean it! I have one of those classic Friends coffee mugs, and I"ll drink about 8 mugs of water every day. BUT...this may sound weird, but I honestly think the coffee & tea I drink has benefited me as well. I limit coffee to 3 cups or less, but tea, I'll drink all day! In particular, I drink green & white tea.

Drinking more water will stimulate the body circumulation. But not the more the better.

I found that when I cut back my intake of 2% milk and increased my intake of water, while still drinking moderate amounts of 1% milk seemed to improve my skin. I love milk but I find when I drink alot of it for a consecutive amount of time it reacts badly with my skin, it could just be me.

I would agree that drinking water does help your skin. Our bodies cells need O2, water and nutrients to survive and to regenerate. If you are continually hydrating your body you are continually hydrating those cells and regenerating them at a more rapid rate than if you did not.
