WEBMD recommends drinking six or eight 8-ounce glasses of water or other fluid every day. It might sound like a lot, but you also lose a lot of water each day.
1. Your mouth is dry
While this might seem obvious, many times we ignore this symptom and continue on with our day. Or sometimes, we substitute water for a soft or sports drink. When your mouth gets dry, always go for the water first — that’s what your body is craving.
2. Your skin is dry
If you didn’t know, your skin is your largest organ. So, if you’re not taking care of the rest of your body — by not drinking enough water for example — it’s going to show in your skin.
3. You have dry eyes
OK, by now you understand that when you don’t drink enough while it begins affecting other parts of your body — including your eyes. Think about the last hangover you endured. You probably woke up not only thirsty and with a headache, but your eyes were probably red too. That’s because alcohol dehydrates you, everyone!
