What Your Skin Says About Your Health

Your epidermis is showing and it’s trying to tell you something. It turns out that the body’s largest organ is an excellent early warning system for all sorts of maladies. Almost every health condition translates to the skin. When something isn’t functioning well on the inside, the clues start appearing on the outside.

Here are few common tell tale signs that skin gives out about your health :

  • Forehead – It is indicative of poor digestive system. Reduce high amounts of fat in diet. Drink antioxidants rich green tea and increase water intake to flush toxins our. Pin your bangs up.

      The skin is the largest organ of the human body. Our skin is a good indicator of our general health. If someone is sick, it often shows in their skin. Glad you liked the post.

  1. I must admit that since I cut back to drinking water predominantly and only have a cup of coffee every now and then, I can see a big difference in my skin. Instead of crackers, I’ll grab a handful of nuts and snack on them or a granola bar. Eating cleaner and healthier does bring noticeable differences.

      Ah yes, While coffee doesn’t cause acne, some studies suggest it can make it worse. Caffeine makes you feel alert and awake but also leads to a heightened stress response in the body. Stress hormones, such as cortisol, may increase the amount of oil produced by your sebaceous glands, meaning you can be more prone to breakouts.

      1. The funny thing is I sometimes cannot finish drinking the entire cup of coffee. I will forget about it and get some water out habit now.

      Your skin can be a window to your underlying health, says Wake Forest University’s Joseph Jorizzo, MD, one of the experts who literally wrote the book on skin signs of internal disease. Many underlying health conditions — some very serious — first appear as skin problems.

      I am glad you found this post helpful. Each skin zone marks a clear representation of a certain health concern. Indeed, skin professionals can use your face as a map to detect a plethora of issues – from dehydration, to stress, to breathing problems, to hormonal fluctuations, and more.
