6 Weird Signs Your Body Needs Water

During the summer, most often we hear the advice to drink as much water as possible, especially when it is extremely hot outside. In fact, the lack of water in the body can lead to a very unpleasant experience. What are the signs showing this issue? Dizziness, headache, fatigue – these are just a few. It is worth being aware of other signs, which actually are not as easy to notice.

6 Signs Your Body Needs Water

You are not sweating enough while working out

During an intense workout, want it or not, you have to sweat. Everything is simple – lack of sweating will lead to the fact that we will be overheating inside, and that will definitely have an adverse effect on our bodies. If you exercise on a hot summer day, try to choose a cooler time of day and don’t forget to drink more water than usual.

Weird Signs Your Body Needs Water

Your skin is oily and dry at the same time

If you are struggling to find out what type of skin you have, it may be that you are suffering from dehydration. Why? As it turns out that, if the skin lacks water, it can be dry, but still shiny from fat separation. If you are familiar with this double-type skin, first try to drink more water. If nothing changes after that, go to a specialist and buy professional skin care products (which you can do cheaper with these Kohl’s coupons from ChameleonJohn!).

Your breath has become unpleasant

Unpleasant breath can occur for several reasons, for example, you have teeth and gum problems, suffer from stomach diseases, and so on. Another reason – the lack of water. More accurately, the lack of saliva in the mouth. When it dries it makes the smell unpleasant. For example, this happens after a night of sleep, since while we are sleeping, we tend to distinguish less saliva. If you suffer from this problem, the first thing you can try is to drink a glass of water a bit more often.

You always want to eat

For a few years, various nutritionists and dieticians are stressing that we can often mix feelings of hunger and thirst. That’s why once you start feeling hungry, it is firstly advised to drink water and observe how the body reacts to that so that you won’t eat way too many calories and feel better.

You feel as if you are being sick all the time

Of course, this may have more serious reasons than just the lack of water, but it is worth knowing that all this plays a significant role in maintaining a healthy immune system. So do not rush to set the worst diagnosis for yourself or start taking different medications instantly. An increased amount of water and strict monitoring for your well-being might be all that it takes to feel better.

Although you eat healthily, your weight continues to rise

Are you watching what you eat, exercising daily, but your weight is still rising? Again, pay attention to the fact if your body gets enough water. As it turns out, dehydration slows down metabolism. To maintain the healthy lifestyle you have you should monitor what you drink and how much your are drinking.

Informative article Michelle. When my hunger increased I thought something was up but I realized I wasn't drinking enough. I can't really tell the difference between thirst and hunger unless I'm really dehydrated. Drinking a glass of water before eating not only helps you determine what it really is but it curbs your appetite as well. You'll probably end up losing a couple pounds. ~Lea
