Most health conditions translate to your skin. You know that if you get a sunburn, it means that you have been out in the sun too long. It’s a highly visible sign of sun damage. But there are other things your skin is trying to tell you that may not be so clear to see and it’s time you listen and take the necessary actions before more damage is inflicted on your skin!
|Brownish/gray Patches of Skin
This kind of discoloration, commonly in creases around the underarms, neck, or groin could be a sign of type 2 diabetes. If you see these velvety patches, see you dermatologist.
It’s normal to experience dull, dry skin in harsh climates, but if you regularly suffer from it, then you could be deficient in omega-3 fatty acids. Make sure you eat plenty salmon and walnuts to get your omega-3 boost!
As you age, your collagen levels decrease, and combined with other factors, this causes deep wrinkles. Use LifeCell All-In-One Anti-Aging Treatment to fight fine lines and wrinkles and boost your collagen production.
Persistent itchiness – not just itchiness on the surface – but when it feels like something is underneath your skin, may be linked to Hodgkin’s or non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma — both cancers caused by an overabundance of abnormal cells. See your doctor if you suffer from severe itching, since it’s an early sign.
|Swelling or Discoloration on Your Lower Legs
Your veins pump your blood back up to your body’s core once it reaches your legs, and if you’re suffering from venous insufficiency, the blood collects in your lower legs causing swelling and discoloration. Visit your internist to figure out the problem – as it could be caused from various conditions.
|Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it has a way of telling you when something inside of you isn’t right. Pay attention to your skin and see a doctor if things seem to be off.|
