Most Common Health Issues That Cause Skin Damage
Most people are very critical when it comes to face and skin. Whenever our skin gets irritated and we begin to notice some acne, pimples, or even the smallest bumps appearing, we try to get rid of them as soon as possible. That’s why we normally use our skin care products in order to protect our skin from dirt, dust, and other bacteria that may cause skin breakouts.
Did you know that skin damage isn’t just caused by foreign entity trying to invade our body? Sometimes skin damage is caused by underlying health issues we’re experiencing. Sometimes we may need to address the health issue first before our skin restores its normal health and youthful glow. Here are the most common health issues that cause skin breakouts and damages as well as the tips on how to address them.
You’ve been told ever since you were young to drink at least eight glasses of water every day. However, this advice was one of the most neglected one or taken for granted by most of us because it’s a boring activity. Drinking plain water is bland for our tastes that’s why we quickly lose interest in drinking water. We prefer drinking those sodas with flavored drinks. However, before you decide to ditch water for good, you might want to think twice.
Aside from the fact that water makes your body healthy, it cleans out the toxins inside your body that may have contributed to skin damages. Did you also know that being dehydrated leads to dry or puffy skin? We advise you to drink more water to keep your skin hydrated. You might also want to cut down your coffee intake during the morning and drinking a glass of wine every night before you sleep because these beverages cause dehydration on your skin.
You Have an Imbalance or Unhealthy Diet
Have you ever wondered why you have an oily face that is prone to pimples, acne marks, and scars? And no matter what you do, your acne scars refused to disappear? It may have something to do with your unhealthy diet. In fact, most people who have a high glycemic index (sugar sweets) that is loaded with carbs and increases your insulin levels or your blood sugar. This can cause inflammation that may trigger your acne marks and scars. For as long as you keep on eating or having an unhealthy diet, your acne scars will refuse to go away. If you want to have a smoother skin, maybe it’s time for you to change your habit now. Minimize your intake on dairy products, sugary foods, and carbohydrates and start eating more fruits, whole grains, and veggies to restore your skin’s youthful glow.
Your Lymphatic System Is Not Distributing The Nutrients In Your Body Properly
The lymphatic system is the one responsible for distributing all the nutrients in our body to ensure that our vital organs, muscles, and nerves will function properly. However, if your lymphatic system isn’t functioning according to its job, dull, dry, or puffy skin, as well as discoloration of your skin, may occur. If you’re living a healthier lifestyle and you’re hydrated but the symptoms on your skin still persist, then there must be something wrong with your lymphatic system.
When your lymph nodes start to glitch, it can build up the fluids around your tissues that may cause the swelling around your face and skin. If this happens, we advise you to undergo a facial treatment in order to get your lymph nodes moving and break the swelling. If the symptom still persists, then maybe it’s time you also undergo a dietary management or have some compression garments.
You’re Starting On Your Period
This health issue is only applicable to women, and we can say that it’s normal if you undergo some breakouts or skin damage when your period is about to start. Why? It’s because when you’re in a period, you’ll notice a large pimple appearing on your face or around your chin. This is what we call a menstrual acne. Cysts and bumps normally start to emerge when you’re about to start your period because your hormone level is high and your skin is also sensitive. If this happens, we advise you to use warm cotton pad or compression around the bump area. You can also apply for an acne-fighting mask every night for long-lasting treatment as you go through with your period.
