The complexion, appearance, and health of your skin actually say a lot about your overall health, wellness, and fitness.
If you’re experiencing some nagging skin issues, those specific problems indicate some specifics as well.
Here are some common skin issues and what they may indicate:
- Early Signs Of Aging – Skin Cell Turnover Might Be Lagging
Retinoids are needed in this case as it is an effective collagen stimulator. That will speed up the turnover of skin cells, resulting in a younger-looking you.
- Undereye Bags – May Signify A Diet Or Lifestyle Problem
Get to the source of the problem. Allergies, smoking, and even eating too much salt can play a role in giving you bags under your eyes. Lack of sleep is also a huge culprit behind that look, and if it’s a common occurrence, you may have to work on sleep hygiene habits or prioritizing shut-eye. The National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults aim to get seven to nine hours of sleep every night.
- Blushing – Might Be A Result of a Compromised Skin Barrier
Hydrating by using a gentle, nonirritating face wash and moisturizer. By being hydrated, the skin won’t be as prone to burning or stinging.
- Acne – May Indicate That Your Hormones
When you’re younger, the cause of acne mostly banks on your oil production. But as you grow older, it’s more often hormonal, according to most dermatologists. Hormonal acne often looks more inflammatory in nature (think deep and red), so the treatment is all about calming skin.
- Cracked/Dry Skin – Thirsty Dermis
As you age, the skin begins to lose some of its moisture. Making things worse, a dehydrated dermis is more likely to show signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. Grab a lightweight moisturizer that has more of a liquid consistency.
- Wrinkles – Low Supply Of Skin Collagen
You need to strengthen the support structure of your skin by boosting collagen.
- Sagging Skin – Need For Collagen Boost
Just like wrinkles, sagging skin calls you out for a collagen boost as well.
- Dark Spots – Sun Damage May Have Caused Pain/Damage To Your Skin
As you know, sun damage is the top culprit of discoloration. That’s why keep up your sunscreen routine is very essential.
