Fraser Coast locals: are you suffering from dehydration?

Is your skin feeling dry? Perhaps you're craving chocolate like there's no tomorrow? Whatever the case, these symptoms can all be related to dehydration. On average, it's recommended that you drink at least eight, eight-ounce glasses of water a day, better known as the 8x8 rule. The question is, do you consume enough water? We've done our research and uncovered some of the most common symptoms of dehydration, as well as the science behind each issue—check them out below! Does your dehydrated skin need some TLC? Check out the Fraser Coast beauty salons below!

Dry skin

Are you suffering from very dry skin? Believe it or not, this could be caused by a lack of water consumption. When our bodies become dehydrated, the moisture from your skin is drawn away, leaving you with dry, less supple skin.


Bad breath

It may not be an obvious one, but having bad breath can be linked to dehydration. Usually, the antibiotic properties in saliva help to clean our mouths—however, when you’re dehydrated, your body cannot produce enough saliva, leading to bad breath.


Food cravings

Always feeling hungry? Sometimes, the signs that parts of your body (like the liver) send to your brain when they need water, can actually be mistaken for hunger. To work out the difference between feeling hungry and thirsty, be sure to consume a glass (or two) of water before diving into a meal.


Headaches

One of the most common signs of dehydration has to be a headache. The brain sits inside a fluid sack, which protects it from hitting against the skull. However, when you consume too little water, the sack can become low on fluids, which in turn causes headaches.


Fatigue

Feeling tired and fatigued can be an obvious sign of dehydration. This is because lack of water reduces your blood volumes, making your heart work faster, and in turn, causing you to feel tired. The answer: make sure you consume regular amounts of water. If you’re feeling fatigued more often than not, visit your local Fraser Coast doctor.
