Yes: Water can plump the skin, and make you look younger. It can hydrate the skin, improve your healing rate, improve your circulation to the skin, and decrease creases and folds.

A 31-year-old female asked:

Can drinking water (too much) before exericising help lose weight?

No: Drinking plenty of water is good for you overall but drinking a lot before a workout will give no added benefits besides interrupting your work out to use the bathroom. Drink 6-8 glass of water throughout the day, not at one time.
