Pimples and Eczema arent just beauty problems – they may actually be your skins way of messaging that an illness is prevailing in your body. Beauty is more than skin deep and our skin can reflect what’s going on inside our body. As part of immune system, the skin defends against environmental factors. But when our body is fighting an ailment, it can get overwhelmed and things like acne and redness can show up. Let’s see some common symptoms and ailments.
The cause – Hormonal Imbalance
There’s a reason many women have breakouts in their chin just before or during their cycle. Chin is particularly sensitive to rises in progesterone and testosterone. Small and mild acne is common. But if it is severe then it’s time to see your gynecologist. “Deep cystic acne on the chin or along the jawline can be a sign of polycystic ovary syndrome or other hormonal imbalance. Untreated conditions might lead to diabetes or infertility problems.
Dark Under Eye Circles
The cause – Allergies
chronic allergies dilate blood vessels and can cause them to leak, which creates puffiness. Many people dont even realise they suffer from allergies. And because the allergens also trigger the release of histamine a chemical that causes puffiness and can make your eyes itchy and runny, you rub your eyes a lot, which only makes your puffiness and dark circles worse.
Redness and Blotchiness
The cause – Stress or digestive disorder
Red patches that come and go on face and neck can be stress related. They can be triggered by fluctuation in stress hormones. “The skin and gastrointestinal tract are both designed to protect the body by keeping things out.” That may be why digestive problems may show up on face.
