My dear friend posed this question because, well, we both love our cuppa joes as do so many of my compatriots. The short answer is NO. Followed closely by HOWEVER.
Coffee has many evidence based benefits, including providing antioxidants. Two studies actually found drinking coffee was associated to 20% reduced risk of death in men and a 26% decreased risk of death in women, over 18–24 years.1 Too much of a good thing is just as criminal. So if your coffee drinking doesn’t impact the amount of water you drink, I think you’re on a good road.
Drinking water could be one of our biggest misses. By hydrating our entire system, we help cell functionality, which in turn, can help improve our skin. I found 3 articles that referenced personal experiences with MORE water (at least half you body weight in ounces…120 lb means 60 oz of water per day. I drink about 100 oz. and of course, I pee. A LOT.)
