Can Drinking Water Improve My Skin?

Can drinking lots of water perfect your skin, in addition to its other health benefits? A dermatologist replies.
Question: "Will drinking lots of water improve my skin?"

Answer: All that water you're slugging down is great for your overall health, but unfortunately, you can't hydrate skin from the inside out, says Jessica Wu, M.D., a clinical instructor of dermatology at the University of Southern California. What you can do: "Keep dry skin under control by applying lotion right after you take a shower," she says. This traps the water left on your skin and slows evaporation, so dryness doesn't progress to itching, redness, cracking or peeling.

Chlorine added to municipal water supplies releases a lot of chlorine in a hot shower, and causes skin dryness, cracking and irritation. I got a whole house water filtration system, the PureMaster V-700 whole house system. It not only takes care of chlorine, but it also filters out heavy metals, and other contaminants, including - chloramines, cysts, copepods, VOCs, atrazine, benzene, xylene, pesticides, insecticides, herbicides. It had a great price for its large capacity.
