How your skin reflects your inner health
Mostly our skin tells us about our internal health. Stress and lack of sleep lead to puffy eyes and dark circles as well as breakouts but your skin reveals more than the obvious. Our skin gives away the first sign of an underlying problem.
Dry Skin- If you have always had dry skin then there is nothing to worry about as dry skin due to climatic changes is also quite normal. However, dry skin can be a sign of internal issues and might indicate an underactive thyroid gland. If your skin feels itchy or very dry, consult a doctor to determine the exact cause.
Yellow Bumps- Having yellow bumps on the arms and legs or dark patches around the underarm area could be a sign of diabetes. It is one of the most common diseases in today’s time but a lot of people don’t even know they have it. Skin Symptoms might be the first clue towards identifying it.
Breakouts- If your skin is pretty good and clear most of the time and you see a sudden breakout of acne on your skin, the reason behind it is stress. When you are stressed out or anxious, your body releases cortisol which leads to breakouts. Start with some stress-reducing activities such as meditation or spending time in nature to get things under control. If the breakouts don’t seem to reduce then consult a dermatologist.
Acne along the jawline- Acne in different areas of your face indicates a different internal issue. Acne that frequently appears on the lower part of the face or along the jawline is usually a sign of PCOS or hormonal imbalance, we suggest you consult a doctor immediately for tests and treatment for the same.
Dark Under eyes- When we have dark circles under our eyes then we generally blame our sleep cycle nut it can also due to nutrient deficiency. Drink more water to tackle lack of hydration and make sure you are eating a balanced diet to include all proteins, vitamins and nutrients.
Metabolic disorders and other health issues can present themselves in the form of patches, skin splotches and rashes. It is your body signalling to you that something is not right. These were the things that your skin is trying to tell you about your health, consult a doctor to get the best treatment plan.
