4 Things Your Skin is Trying to Tell You

Your skin is incredibly vocal, and while it may not actually have a voice, there are many things your skin can tell you about your health. Once you know what to look out for, you’ll be amazed at how much your body is able to express what it needs.

The freckles on your skin may be caused by too much exposure to the sun. High and frequent exposure to UV rays can increase melanin production, which cause freckles to become darker and more visible. This can happen not only on your face, but on your arms and shoulders as well, so make sure to lather up.

Before hitting the beach, invest in a sunscreen with high SPF coverage to protect yourself from the UV rays!

But if your skin feels really flaky and tight, it may be caused by dehydration. Just bring a water bottle with you everywhere to sip throughout the day and stay hydrated!

If moisturizers aren’t doing enough to soothe your skin, it may be time to look at your diet. Rough or dry skin can be caused by an Omega-3 deficiency. Reach for walnuts, salmon, flaxseeds, and soybeans instead of cookies and potato chips when you want something to munch on. A good moisturiser to provide your skin with intense hydration will also help out in the long run.
