When you're exposed to extreme temperatures—whether it's very hot or very cold—your body uses more water to maintain its normal temperature. Also, in the winter you're exposed to heated air which evaporates water from your skin. Be sure to drink water or other fluids whenever you're thirsty. And, make sure children and elderly adults drink enough fluids, too. Adult women need about 9 cups of fluids a day; adult men about 13 cups.
