There’s one thing that absolutely amazing about being healthy; if you are healthy, you can see it on your face and if you’re not, well, you can see that too. Your skin is the clear reflection of all the lifestyle choices you make and that being said, good and healthy skin symbolizes a good and healthy life.
You will know whether or not you are a victim of unhealthy skin by taking a good look at yourself in the mirror. Listed below are warning signs of unhealthy skin that you should look out for:
Dry patches: Once in a while, all of us experience dry patches of skin and usually a good rub with a moisturizer is enough to even it out. However, over an extended period of time, these occasional patches of dry skin pave the way for more serious skin problems that make you look dull, old and worn out.
Dark spots: Dark spots is your skin’s way of telling you that you need to cut down on your exposure to sunlight and other forms of ultraviolet rays. Also known as hyperpigmentation, dark spots make you look like a chocolate chip cookie and that is not at all skin goals.
Dry lips: Dry lips are very common and so is the use of lip balm to prevent it. However, what’s not very common is the understanding of the fact that dry lips is a sign of Vitamin B deficiency and turning to Vitamin B sources like dairy products, eggs, lean meats, green leafy vegetables, beans and nuts will make the problem go away once and for all.
Dark circles: Dark circles occur under the eyes as the skin underneath the eyes is very thin, making the blood underneath the skin easily visible. Moreover, if your eyes are puffy, it causes further thinning of the skin making the dark circles even more prominent and darker. Getting good sleep, staying hydrated and sufficient vitamin E intake should make the dark circles go away making your skin look healthy and nourished.
