If there’s one piece of advice that’s been said to death, it’s to drink more water and stay hydrated. But how do you know that you’re getting enough water into your system? Here are nine signs that you need to drink more water.
1. Lotion doesn’t work
If applying liberal amounts of lotion to your dry skin doesn’t improve its condition, you may need to up your liquid intake to help the body produce more sebum!
2. A dry mouth and a sticky tongue
The next time you feel this symptom, don’t reach for candy or a piece of gum – go for a glass of water instead!
Headaches are a very common sign of dehydration, and too little water can lead to migraines. If you have one, drink only water and keep away from sugary drinks.
4. Weight gain
Drinking enough water can boost metabolism, while being dehydrated can lead to you feeling unnecessarily hungry as your body is confused about the lack of liquid.
You need enough water for easy passage of waste through your system. Unless you have another condition, being constipated is usually a sign of dehydration.
Drinking enough water can remove bacteria from the bladder, preventing these irritating infections from happening at all.
7. Bad moods
It takes only extremely mild dehydration to result in irritation or moodiness due to changes in the brain chemistry.
8. Muscle cramps
You can go for yoga or massages to counter this, but it may be just as simple as drinking enough water. Blood circulation slows down when you don’t have enough liquid in your system.
