Dehydration is one of the most serious things that can happen to a person, but fortunately, it is also one of the easiest to fix. Dehydration occurs when your body loses more water then it receives, either through urination, tears, sweat and even respiration. Being dehydrated has many adverse effects, such as nausea, vomiting, fatigue and lesser known, clogged pores.
A person pores can become clogged through dehydration because the skin is much dryer when the body is not properly hydrated. What these means, is an abundance of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, which eventually accumulate and clog the pore. This can be further compound if you had dirt and bacteria on the face into the equation.
If you were to visit your family physician (no need for a dermatologist yet) and inquire about your acne, they will probably tell you to drink more water without having to hear anymore. The reason for this is, even though you might think you are getting enough water and are staying hydrated, many people report that there outbreaks seriously diminish after increase their water intake.
