Take a look in the mirror – your skin is trying to tell you something. The largest organ in the body carries clues about the health of other organs, so consider it a window to your underlying health. When something isn’t functioning well on the inside, you will be able to see it on the outside, so stop blaming aging and stress for facial lines, dry skin or cracked lips, because these flaws can signal underlying health issues. Here is how you can detect what is going on in your body.
Horizontal lines on the forehead may indicate digestive issues. To combat them, drink warm water with lemon juice every morning.
A pronounced frown line means that the liver is under pressure. This might happen due to environmental, physical or emotional reasons. Whatever the cause, try massaging the brow area in circular motions.
If you get enough sleep, but you still have bags and dark circles under the eyes, it’s time to pay attention to your #diet. Although allergies can also cause eye bags and puffiness, one of the main culprits is eating too much salt.
Dry #skin signals that there is a problem with the digestive system and bowels. Massaging and pinching and releasing your skin can help with constipation. Dull, dry skin could mean a deficiency in omega-3 fatty acids that can result in dryness. In order to get omega-3s, eat a lot of salmon, sardines, walnuts, and soybeans.
Severely cracked and dry #lips may be a reaction to medication, or a symptom of an allergy or infection. Cracking at the corners of the mouth may signal an immune system disorder. The delicate tissue of the lips is very sensitive to drought, so if you have chapped lips, it’s a sign you have to start drinking more water.
