Dry­ness, oily skin, break­outs, a pale or red­dish com­plex­ion — these are all signs that can be read like a book! After all, the skin is a kind of con­duc­tor between the out­side world, the envi­ron­ment and our inter­nal organs. And if her con­di­tion has changed, it means that some kind of fail­ure has occurred in the body …

Not all that glit­ters is gold
Over­weight peo­ple often suf­fer from increased oily skin (due to exces­sive activ­i­ty of the seba­ceous glands). If your weight is nor­mal, but your face still starts to shine an hour or two after wash­ing, then per­haps the rea­son is a liv­er dis­ease. For exam­ple, chole­cys­ti­tis, cholan­gi­tis, cholelithi­a­sis. The liv­er reg­u­lates all types of metab­o­lism, includ­ing fat. With lesions of this organ, the excre­tion of fats from the body is dis­turbed. To avoid intox­i­ca­tion, the skin is involved, and fats are secret­ed through the pores. Often, tox­ins that enter the body along with food, water and air are released in this way. Then rash­es are added to the oily sheen …
Unfor­tu­nate­ly, in this case, it is almost impos­si­ble to solve skin prob­lems with the help of cos­met­ics alone, and even dan­ger­ous — sup­pres­sion of the activ­i­ty of the seba­ceous glands threat­ens with intox­i­ca­tion of the whole organ­ism. If, in addi­tion to oily skin, you notice its yel­low­ish tint, and it tin­gles in the right hypochon­dri­um, it makes sense to take a bio­chem­i­cal analy­sis for liv­er enzymes: amino­trans­feras­es, albu­min and biliru­bin. In the mean­time, lim­it fat­ty, fried and alco­hol.

The dry sea­son has begun
The main cause of dry skin is the dis­turbed water bal­ance in the body. Often we do not drink our dai­ly norm of liq­uid — 30 ml per kilo­gram of weight. Cells do not receive hydra­tion from the inside, the result is flaky skin and small mim­ic wrin­kles. The rea­son for this is easy to elim­i­nate: drink 1.5–2 liters of water every day and use a mois­tur­iz­er.
Vit­a­min defi­cien­cy, accom­pa­nied by dry skin, as well as hair loss and weak­ness, is a fre­quent com­pan­ion of urban res­i­dents. Por­ridge from a bag for break­fast, a burg­er for lunch, a microwaved ready-to-cook food for din­ner — with such a diet, vit­a­mins A, E and D, which are nec­es­sary for the skin, are nowhere to be found … The way out is to drink vit­a­min com­plex­es and lean on fresh fruits and veg­eta­bles.
Dry skin is one of the signs of an under­ac­tive thy­roid gland (hypothy­roidism). A blow to this organ can be caused by a lack of iodine, sit­ting at the mon­i­tor around the clock, inevitable stress, and many oth­er fac­tors. In the case of pro­gres­sive hypothy­roidism, in addi­tion to dry skin, swelling of the face and legs may appear. If, in addi­tion, you con­stant­ly want to sleep and it is dif­fi­cult to con­cen­trate on sim­ple things, con­tact an endocri­nol­o­gist.

Ros­es and whites
Pale­ness of the face in our lat­i­tudes is a com­mon phe­nom­e­non. But if you notice that you have a bluish tint to your skin, and dark cir­cles under your eyes do not dis­ap­pear, it can be assumed that the body lacks oxy­gen. If every­thing is in order with hemo­glo­bin, care­ful­ly lis­ten to your well-being. Head spin­ning in the morn­ing? Often ring­ing in the ears? Vis­it a neu­rol­o­gist — you may have veg­e­to­vas­cu­lar dys­to­nia. How­ev­er, well-being can be improved with prop­er sleep (at least 7–8 hours) and prop­er­ly select­ed med­ica­tions.

What hor­mones tell
Ulcers, pim­ples and oth­er minor inflam­ma­tions (acne) on the skin are not only a teenage prob­lem. As with dry skin, break­outs are often caused by hor­mon­al imbal­ances. With an excess of testos­terone in the female body, not only acne, but also hair (in the chin area) can appear on the face. In this case, it is worth tak­ing an analy­sis for hor­mon­al sta­tus. It’s bet­ter not to delay: increased testos­terone can also pro­voke health prob­lems. For exam­ple, poly­cys­tic ovary syn­drome, threat­en­ing infer­til­i­ty.
