Water doesn’t improve your skin, scientists say

Published by Waleed Fakhroo on November 24, 2009

Drinking lots of water doesn’t give you a clearer complexion, according to scientists who now claim fruit and vegetables are the key to good skin.

The findings are contrary to the advice that has been followed by many women, including Hollywood actresses and catwalk models, for many years.

The British Nutrition Foundation has claimed that a balanced diet and sunscreen are much more effective at keeping skin looking plump and young.

Its Food For Skin report highlights a lack of any robust studies backing up the popular advice that water makes the complexion glow.

Report author, Heather Yuregir, said: “Just drinking water for the sake of drinking water really has no effect on improving the appearance of skin. It is just a common misconception.”

Vitamins A, B, C and E contained in a range of fruit and vegetables are all crucial for keeping the skin cells healthy. Not eating enough of them can result in problems such as scurvy, dermatitis or dry, scaly skin.

However, the report highlights that drinking plenty of water is still essential to good health.

Smoking and exposure to the sun are what ages skin the most.

Mrs Yuregir said: “Fruit and veg can keep your skin functioning as it should and keep it looking healthy.

“And sun cream is really recommended to prevent the signs of ageing because the majority of the signs of ageing that appear on the skin are caused by sun damage.”
