Hello, I am Dr. Neal Schultz, and welcome to DermTV. We have all heard at one time or another in your lives that you are supposed to drink eight glasses of water a day in order to have healthy and hydrated skin. I have no idea where that came from. I know of no medical study, I know of no scientific study that has ever demonstrated that. Drinking a glass of water does not directly hydrate your skin. Of course, if you are in a proverbial desert and you are completely dehydrated, drinking a glass of water is going to help your skin as it will the rest of your body. But drinking a glass of water does not directly correlate with the appearance of your skin. So, think of it this way: if you are thirsty, drink water. Thirst is your body’s mechanism that tells you that your body needs water. But if your skin is dry, try a moisturizer. Please join me again at DermTv.com.
