5 Signs You Are Not Drinking Enough Water

5 Signs You Are Not Drinking Enough Water:

You are probably aware that water makes up 60% of the human body (because we hear this sentence all the time), and is needed to produce bodily fluids like saliva, help flush toxins from the body and maintain a healthy weight, amongst many other things. Water also contributes to regular bowel function, clear, youthful-looking skin, and optimal muscle performance.

Failing to drink enough water can cause adverse symptoms, like dehydration, headache, weakened immunity, dry skin, and fatigue.

Here are some of the signs that indicate you may need to start drinking more water.

1. You Have Persistent Bad Breath

Water consumption is essential for saliva production, and regular water consumption helps rinse away bacteria so you can maintain healthy gums and teeth. Lack of water causes bacteria to build upon the tongue, gums, and teeth and inhibits saliva production. All of that contributes to bad breath nobody wants to have. If you make practicing good oral hygiene your everyday habit, yet you still can’t get rid of chronic bad breath, it’s possible you are not drinking enough water. However, if the bad breath sticks around even after you increase your water intake, making an appointment with your doctor might be a good idea. Some of the other underlying causes such as gum disease, type 2 diabetes, and liver or kidney problems, and you want to check that out.

2. You Feel Fatigued

Not getting enough water can lead to an overall fluid loss in the body. This fluid loss further leads to a decrease in blood volume that puts extra pressure on the heart to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the organs, muscles included. Lack of water can lead to periods of low energy levels and fatigue because your body is trying to function without enough water. If you’re constantly feeling tired and sluggish, despite getting a quality night’s sleep, you need to boost your water intake.

3. Your Skin Health Is Poor

Water plumps and hydrates skin cells to make your skin look more youthful, brighter, and vibrant. Therefore, lack of water can cause the skin to lose its elasticity and plumpness, which can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, flakiness, and sagging skin. Water even helps reduce some of the most common skin problems (like acne, for example). It does it by flushing harmful toxins from the body.

4. You Experience Severe Sugar Cravings

The state of dehydration interferes with the body’s ability to reach into glucose stores. That can trigger cravings for sugary foods and carbohydrates. Sudden and weird cravings for foods like donuts, cookies, chocolate, and candies may indicate that your body needs water, and it is manifesting that through the need for sweet, sugary food. Also, try drinking more water to rehydrate your body if you’re experiencing sugar cravings or hunger pains even though you’ve just eaten. That should keep cravings at bay.

5. You Get Sick Often

Water helps flush bacteria and toxins from the body to fight off infection and disease. Water also strengthens your immune system, saving you from becoming sick frequently. If you feel that you’re always getting sick even if it’s not flu season, you need to start drinking more water.

Combination Skin 101

Combination Skin 101 Causes, Needs, and Care

What is combination skin?

The combination skin type is extraordinary because it has different skin types’ characteristics on different parts of the skin. That means that some parts are very oily (in most cases, it is the T-zone), and some parts are dry (usually forehead, cheeks, temples, and hairline). The oily part of the face tends to break out and have more visible and larger pores, and the dry part tends to be characterized by dullness, flakiness, and dryness.

This means that this type of skin can sometimes be hard to take care of, mainly because different parts of the skin need completely opposite types of care and nutrition.

If you have combination skin, you probably tend to run into problems like controlling oil around your chin and nose or if struggling to get rid of the flakiness on your forehead or your cheeks.

What causes combination skin?

The most likely cause of combination skin is genetics, just like for pretty much everything in on our bodies. Nevertheless, the inadequate skincare may be making the shape of your skin worse than it is. Of course, that is not what you want (who wants that?), but you may be using cleansers that are too harsh on the dry parts of the skin, trying to remove the oiliness from the oily part. It is pretty hard to balance, yes. We are here to help with that and tell you everything you need to know about what your skin needs and how to provide exactly that.

Tips to keep combination skin healthy and nourished

The most useful skincare tip we can give you when it comes to combination skin is a balance. That is all combination skin needs for the negative effects of each skin type to be reduced. You will have to compromise on the products you are using. While that does not mean that you should have two separate skincare regimes, it does mean that you will have to think about how a product affects your skin overall, both oily and dry side.

Make sure you are using a gentle and low pH cleanser that will help build a great foundation in your skincare routine.

When it comes to toners, you should stay away from the harsh and drying toners ones. Instead of that, choose a lightweight toner and layer it. This will work for both dry and oily parts of the skin, which taps into that balance we talked about.

You may be prone to breakouts and blackheads just on the T-zone due to the high concentration of the skin’s sebum and natural oils. If this is the case, you can opt for chemical exfoliants in that area of the face only. This way, you are going to avoid drying out the rest of your skin.

In order to moisturize the dry areas of the skin, sheet masks are your best friend. They will moisturize the areas that need it without adding the extra oil to the already oily areas.
