Question Keto vs eating carbs when gaining muscle and about testosterone

Does cutting water make you look leaner?

Is it beneficial to perform a water cut (identical to one for a bodybuilding/powerlifting show) for a beach party? Or will the visual results be not be apparent to the untrained eye? Do bodybuilders perform water cuts for qualifying for their weight class and looking leaner, or only the former?
