Here are the signs that show you are not drinking enough water:
1.    At times you feel overly thirsty. We went over dry mouth already, but thirst goes beyond a desert-like tongue. Alcohol dehydrates the entire body.OMGKAV01237-1
2.    Your mouth is dry, this seems pretty obvious. Drinking water lubricates the mucus membranes in your mouth and throat, which will continue to keep your mouth moist with saliva long after that first sip.OMGKAV01237-2
3.    You skin is dry. Skin is your body’s largest organ, so of course it needs to stay hydrated, and dry skin is one of the earliest signs of full-on dehydration. This can lead to much larger problems. A lack of water means a lack of sweat, which leads to a body’s inability to wash away excess dirt and oil accumulated throughout the day.OMGKAV01237-3
4.    You experience constipation. Staying hydrated helps lubricate the digestive system. During the process of dehydration, the colon uses up the water that would have been used by the intestines in the next step of the digestive process. OMGKAV01237-4
5.    Your eyes are dry. It’s quite clear that drinking water affects more than just your mouth and throat. A lack of water intake leads to dry, bloodshot eyes. Without water in the body, your tear ducts dry up.OMGKAV01237-5
6.    You experience joint pain. The cartilage and spinal discs of our body are made up of about 80% water. This is very important to keep our bones from grinding against each other with every step we take. When the body is hydrated, you ensure that your joints can absorb the shock of sudden movements.OMGKAV01237-6
7.    When a body is dehydrated it “borrows” water from your blood. A lack of properly hydrated blood leads to a lack of oxygen being brought throughout the body. Lack of oxygen leads to sleepiness and outright fatigue, thus you feel fatigue and lethargic. OMGKAV01237-7
