A healthy and young appearance is usually linked with good health. So, we sometimes fall into the temptation of blaming our age and stress for the fine lines, brittle nails, or hair loss, when, actually, these things can be signs of health issues. Did you know that?
Here on the channel, we already talked about body smells, facial acne, and the half-moon in your nails and how all these things might be health issues.
See which symptoms you should pay attention to:
0:00 What Does Your Face Say About Your Health
0:48 Facial flushing
Flushed cheeks aren’t always a signal of shyness. Facial flushing and acne lesions are common symptoms of rosacea, a chronic skin disease.
1:10 Changes in the skin color around the mouth
Grayish skin on the nasolabial triangle can indicate a lack of oxygen in the blood.
1:32 Swollen face and eyes
Facial edema and swollen eyes, combined with dry skin and brittle hair are some of the external symptoms of lack of iodine.
2:00 Facial asymmetry
A sudden change in the symmetry of your face, lacrimation, tingling in the muscles, and dry eyes might indicate Bell’s palsy.
2:35 Receding chin
When combined with a large neck and small mandible, it might be a sign of sleep apnea, a disorder where the breathing is interrupted by ten or more seconds during sleep.
2:53 Excessive facial hair
Undesired facial hair on women, especially on the jawline, might be a symptom of polycystic ovary syndrome.
3:14 Chapped lips
Did you know that your lips can tell a lot about your health? Dry lips might be a reaction to a medication, an occupational risk (for metal singers, for example), or a symptom of allergy, infections, or other conditions.
3:43 Itching ears
Constant itching in the ears might be a symptom of eczema, psoriasis, or allergies.
4:03 Dirty mouth
Dirty teeth and gums aren’t only a sign of poor oral hygiene. Your mouth can tell unpleasant things about your heart and bones.
