A dry mouth may seem like an obvious sign that you’re in need of a little hydration, but be careful which beverage you reach for. Sugary drinks won’t do the trick long-term. Drinking water is your best option to keep your mouth and throat feeling moist longer, and to get rid of that awful pasty and dry mouth feeling.
Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it needs water just as much as the rest of your body. So, dry skin is one of the first signs of dehydration. When your skin is dehydrated, it negatively affects your body’s ability to get rid of excess dirt and oil, which can lead to acne, pimples, etc.
A dry mouth is one thing, but being overly thirsty is the feeling that you absolutely need water, right away. Dehydration causes your brain fluid levels to become unbalanced. When you get this feeling, it’s your body screaming at you to help get it back on track — so grab start drinking water!
Yes, the amount of water you drink even affects your eyes too. Without water, your tear ducts dry up which leads to dry, bloodshot eyes. If your eyes feel dry, itchy or irritated, chances are, you need some water, don’t be shy.
Water is extremely necessary to keep your bones and joints working properly. It helps nutrients move through your blood and into your joints, and it allows waste products to move out of your joints.
A steady flow of water throughout the day allows your body to continuously flush out toxins and transport nutrients to where they are needed. If you aren’t drinking enough water, toxins can sit in your system. This, can cause an illness or a virus. Hydration has a huge impact on your immune system.
Water makes up the majority of your blood and other body fluids, and even mild dehydration can cause blood to thicken. This forces your heart to pump harder so that it can carry blood to your cells and organs, resulting in that tired feeling. If you feel tired, drained or a little out of it, these could be signs that you’re not getting enough water.

Just a note, excessive thirst and urination (I am talking about drinking glass after glass) can be a sign of diabetes. A small finger stick can make all the difference.
