More than half of the human body is composed of water, 60% to be precise. Several major organs like our lungs and brain are made up almost entirely of water. The amount of water within us isn’t static, it’s constantly lost due to bodily processes and has to be replenished again.
This is why it’s so important that we drink our recommended quantity of water every single day.
Without enough water, you’re prone to fainting, weakness and muscle cramps. If you notice any of the following symptoms, start drinking more water immediately to avoid being dehydrated.
1. Your Skin Becomes More Wrinkled And Dry
Many dermatologists liken skin to a raisin. When it’s full of water, it’s a plump, smooth grape. When it’s dehydrated, it becomes shriveled and wrinkly. If you notice your wrinkles have become more noticeable lately, it could be because you aren’t drinking enough water.
When your water intake is too less, your skin also becomes drier, starts to flake and feels rough. Dehydrated skin can’t just be remedied by slathering on more moisturizer, you need to drink more water everyday.
