Without water, your body couldn’t function. Dermatologists often advise their patients to drink more water because so many people don’t drink enough. But how can you tell if you’re dehydrated? When you watch this video, you’ll hear a skin care expert explain some of the main ways that dehydration can affect your skin.
For example, people who are dehydrated may notice that they have very puffy bags under their eyes. That’s because the body retains water when it’s dehydrated. Another way to tell if you aren’t drinking enough water is by pinching your skin. If it looks excessively papery or crinkly, you should probably try to drink more water.
