The skin is the largest organ in the body. It is an organ from the outside which protects the organs from the inside. The skin can show a lot of signs that something is wrong with our internal organs, which is why we shouldn’t ignore them.
These 6 Changes on Your Skin Might Be Indicating To Serious Health Problems
1. “Smile” wrinkles around the eyes
Even though smile wrinkles around the eyes are very common, especially among those who smile a lot, they can also mean that your eyesight isn’t good.
If you squint too much because you can’t see something, or you often squint because of the sun, you should check your eyes and buy a good pair of glasses and sunglasses.
2. Darkened skin on the neck and armpits
If you notice that one part of the armpits and the neck becomes darker, it can signify that you have issues with the thyroid gland or you have diabetes.
The skin pigmentation appears on the creases and the folds on the skin, and it is more common among people who have higher risk of type 2 diabetes.
3. Very pale skin
If you notice that your skin is becoming very pale, you may have anemia. When the body isn’t able to produce plenty of red blood cells because it lacks iron, vitamin B12, and folic acid, the person has anemia.
The freckles on the skin show that the DNA of the skin was damaged by UV rays. Some people are more prone to freckles due to genetics, but freckles can also occur as a result of sun exposure and become darker.
5. Skin dryness
If your skin is very dry, it means that your body is dehydrated. If you don’t drink enough water, or you drink a lot of coffee and alcohol you can easily become dehydrated.
You can also notice acne on your skin because the skin tries to produce fat because it lacks moisture.
6. Acne around the mouth and on the chin
Acne around the chin and the mouth can indicate issues with the endocrine system, or an indicator of polycystic ovarian disorder.
When these acne appear all the time and your period is irregular, you should definitely see a doctor.
