Drinking enough water, as simple of a task as it is, can be easily forgotten about. It is recommended that you drink six to eight cups a day, but heres a simple test to tell if you’re hydrated:
- Pinch the skin on the back of your hand
- If it goes back to normal immediately, you’re hydrated.
This is referred to as ‘skin turgor’ or your skin’s elasticity, “how easily it changes shape and returns to normal when pulled or pressed. Skin with normal turgor should be able to snap back very quickly,” according to Business Insider.
If you have trouble drinking six to eight cups a day, you can substitute for tea or coffee, if that’s what you prefer.
However, it’s recommended to limit soda, juice and smoothie consumption, as they all contain a lot of sugar.
