What does your skin tell about your health


Skin is the largest part of our body. It is an impediment between us and many health threats. It safeguards us from toxins, germs, sun rays and other dangerous substances. Our skin also help with immune defense, vitamin production and temperature regulation.

Your skin expects a lot of upkeep from inside and outside as it has a considerable role in keeping you healthy and it tells a lot about what is happening inside your body. Certain skin conditions tell about your entire health. 

Now let’s proceed towards ‘what does your skin tell about your health’


Wrinkles in old age are normal but premature wrinkles tell something else. In women, deep wrinkles at the time of early menopause can be a sign of osteoporosis. Mostly people do not notice the osteoporosis until they have a minor fall resulting in broken bone. So women should don’t avoid wrinkles at their skin in early age.

Dark skin patches


Dark skin patches can be correlated with insulin resistance, diabetes or skin cancer. Velvety, dark patches on your back, neck and underarms are the early signs of diabetes. If you have skin patches that are different from your normal skin tone, it’s time to get them checked by your doctor.

Old and dull skin

If your skin looks duller, older and less elastic that means your skin lacks hydration. Adequately hydrated skin looks flexible, clammy and smooth. When your body doesn’t get enough water, your skin begins to crepe, lose elasticity and get thick wrinkles at normal age. 

Skin breakouts

If you notice an horrific skin breakout that doesn’t occur commonly, it’s time to blame your stress level. When you have stress and anxiety, your body release stress hormone called cortisol that lead to skin breakouts. So breakout tells you that you need to release your stress and anxiety. 


Acne prone skin is a common sign of hormonal imbalance. But different types of acne tells about different hormonal issues. If you usually have acne on your skin you need to go and get checked. In women, acne along the jaw line or lower side of your face can be due to polycystic ovarian syndrome.

White patches

Some internal health issues can influence the pigment of your skin. Noticeable white patches on your skin are associated with viral hepatitis, pernicious anemia, diabetes and autoimmune thyroid disease. So don’t ignore white patched or any colorful differences in your skin. 

Dark skin under your eyes

Dark patches or dark skin under your eyes tell about various underlying health problems. Dark under eyes may be due to lack of hydration, nutrient deficiency or lack of sleep. That means you should eat a balanced diet, drink sufficient water and take good sleep.

Dry and itchy skin

If you have dry and itchy skin even after applying a good moisturizer it’s an alert. It occur due to climate change that usually need moisturization and due to Eczema. Eczema is a chronic skin condition that cause cracked, inflamed, dry and itchy skin. It can also be linked to hay fever and asthma.

So these are the few things you should know about your skin and health. If you notice any such changes in your skin you should consult your dermatologist so they can properly diagnose and treat your condition. Take good care of your skin to keep it rich and healthy because your skin is the reflection of your internal health.
