5 Signs in People who Drink less Water
There is nothing directly related to your dehydration. Following sign and symptoms are observed as common body reactions in need of water. If you think you need a professional advice, we highly recommend you to consult a medical professional.
Let’s get to the list…
Itchy Eyes and Throat
This is the most common sign and symptom of dehydration in almost all the human beings. If you are feeling itchy eyes, redness and any kind of irritation in your eyes along with an itchy throat, then it is a clear sign that you body wants you to drink more water.
Your eyes and throat need lubrication from time to time to regulate themselves. These are the organs that doesn’t have outer layering of skin and are exposed to open air.
So, drinking water can relief you from watery and itchy eyes, rather than hunting for eye drops. Have enough fluids to keep yourself well hydrated.
Okay, this is a not-so-uncommon sign of dehydration but we have put it here with an intention. As you already know that thirst is equal to ‘your body needs water’. Right?
But… Why is thirst is equal to ‘Ignore your Thirst and Keep doing that Work’ for you?
Don’t neglect the requirements of your body. If it demands good food and enough water, then it is your duty to keep yourself healthy. No one is going to know what your body needs. So, take some time from your busy schedule and prepare your daily routine with proper time for yourself.
When you don’t moisturize your skin, it becomes dry and you can see a layer of dead skin cells that are coming out of your skin in the form of powder. As same as the outer part, your body also needs water to moisturize your skin from inside out to make it look shinny and buttery smooth all the time.
If you are a girl who is experiencing dry skins and skin itching problems in summers, you need to drink a lot of water to keep yourself hydrated. Water will also help you to get rid of other skin problems like pimples by detoxifying your body.
