Through the face, we can discover various affections of the body and its appearance can intuit the state of health of a person. Here are some of the most important signs.

Thinness

If the face is emaciated and thin, especially on the cheekbones, it may be due to excessive exercise or diet. And is that if you practice too much sport, the skin does not have enough oxygen or the necessary fats, so it is slim in the same way as another part of the body.

Fatness

If a face is down and somewhat “plump” may demonstrate a lack of exercise or a high level of stress, habits that increase the production of some hormones by cortisol that affect the development of collagen and may cause lack of elasticity, circulatory problems, inflammation, and fluid retention.

Wrinkles

They are usually associated with the passage of time, but not only is this the trigger, as it may also be due to a long exposure to the sun, as UV rays cause deep and thick wrinkles especially around the eyes.

The wrinkles that form at the corner of the lips deserve a separate analysis, since what known as “angular stomatitis” is usually due to a sign of lack of vitamin B as well as a deficiency of vitamin B when there is a lack of vitamin C. In both cases it is advisable to consume more citrus and green vegetables.

Redness

The reasons for the reddening of the skin can be due to excessive consumption of coffee and not getting enough vitamin D. It has shown that caffeine dehydrates, just as spicy and alcohol.

Pallor

If the face looks too white even after eating, iron may be missing. In this case, it is advisable to consume foods that are rich in vitamin C and legumes.

Eye bags

The dark marks that appear under the skin and that tried to disguise with bases of makeup, can originate by the lack of sleep or to carry a diet that is low in iron. The bluish tint that appears beneath the eyes, actually the blood vessels that noticed through the dermis which is very thin and thin.

Jaundice

A yellowish skin is a clear signal of problems in the liver, mainly cirrhosis or hepatitis. The first may cause by excessive consumption of alcohol.

Dry

If you are missing some vitamin, especially vitamin A, you may feel rather dry skin. If it is constipation, hair loss, extreme tiredness, obesity or an irregular monthly cycle, it can mean that there are thyroid problems.
