  • It's electrolytes - the balance of certain things in your system that get thrown off if you have diarrhea or something. That has nothing to do with your face though. Gatorade has artificial dyes, HFCS or artificial sweeteners (depending if it's regular or G2 or whatever). Once in a while it's okay, but not that much a day. It's not bad for you in moderation, just like anything else. Cut it out, replace it with water, and see if that helps - it could take a while though.

  • I hope it helps - I drink too much of it myself (but less than 1 a day), love the stuff, but it is better than some other options out there!

  • Moderation. I honestly would drink that while I was pregnant since my doctor reccommended it. But now I never really drink it. My son drinks it all the time while training for football practice.
