Will drinking a lot of water make my face look bloated?

Why do doctors say to drink lots of water when you are constipated, doesn't it just make you feel more bloated?

Why do doctors say to drink lots of water when you are constipated, doesn't it just make you feel more bloated?

It's the truth: Many cases of constipation are due to inadequate water intake. Water should not make you bloated as it is absorbed into the tissues or passes through into the colon very quickly. More water in the colon creates softer stools that move more quickly through the colon. ...Read more

I have to urinate a lot and nothing comes. Feel a little bloated, but not much. If traumatic cystitis, can I just drink lots of water and let it heal?

I have to urinate a lot and nothing comes. Feel a little bloated, but not much. If traumatic cystitis, can I just drink lots of water and let it heal?

See your doctor.: If this is the case, you really should see your doctor to rule out something worse. Unless a doctor told you, you can't be sure it's from traumatic cystitis. It might be prostatitis, or benign prostatic hypertrophy, or you might have damaged your urethra from trauma. Even if it is cystitis, it can lead to a more serious infection in your kidney, so see your doctor to find out. ...Read more

I have really bad dry skin how do I help my dry skin? I have tryed everything from drinking a lot of water to putting lotion on my face.

Dry skin: Dry skin occurs not from too little water intake but rather from loss of water through the skin. The best way to minimize this is to apply moisturizing creams or lotions twice daily. Other things you can do include limiting your bathing to as infrequent as possible. Not all scaliness is from dry skin. Consult with your doctor if moisturizing does not work. ...Read more

I frequently get a lot of acne on my face which leave scar behind. I've tried drinking a lot of water and keeping skin dry. Please help...

Get a real Rx: Drinking water and keeping your skin dry will not help with your acne. It's a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related disease that can be a major personal and professional handicap. Get with your personal physician now. Topical and "folk / home" remedies will probably not clear your disease. If a systemic antibiotic and spironolactone don't clear you, please consider isotretinoin. Do what you must. ...Read more

I drink a lot of water and trying to eat healthy always , but my skin is too dry and my face is yellow ??

Yellow?: Are the whites of your eyes yellow too? Are you eating a whole lot of carrots? Too many carrots can turn your skin orangey or yellowish. But yellow skin could mean jaundice too, from a liver problem which can be serious. If the whites of your eyes are yellow you need to get seen. No alcohol or meds, or supplements until you find out what is going on. If you have abdominal pain or fever to ER. ...Read more
