Common Beauty Problems and the Possible Health Concerns behind Them

On certain occasions, you'll feel bad that your hair isn't as lush and shining as when a trusted pro hairdresser treated them. Other times, you may feel bothered by the sudden appearance of zits and flaky skin patches on your face. Despite these eyesores, many of us simply shrug them off thinking that they'll be gone in a matter of days or weeks.

However, some beauty problems don't simply appear out of the blue just to ruin your plans to attend a friend's wedding or an upcoming family reunion. They actually occur because there may be some underlying health concerns that you might not be aware of.

Here are some of those beauty concerns that might be giving you glimpse of your overall well-being:

Skin

Being the largest organ of the body, skin issues may often be a telling sign of a grave health problem.

  • While thought to be a common teenage dilemma, acnes do occur during adulthood. But unlike those that occur during one's adolescence, pimples that pop out during your adult years may be the result of hormonal imbalances, which may be brought about by concerns like cystic ovaries or endometriosis - concerns that are common among women.
  • A yellowing of the skin is one sign you should never ignore and should immediately warrant medical attention because it may be a condition known as jaundice. It's often the first sign of liver failure and it may progress into a degree of yellowness on the white part of your eyes.
  • You may be proud of your excessively white complexion that makes you stand out but if your skin seems too pale compared to your family or relatives, have yourself checked for anemia - a condition that happens when your body severely lacks iron to make hemoglobin, which is responsible for the pigment of our red blood cells.

Hair

More than just a result of using the wrong condition or shampoo, beauty issues involving the hair can often give you a clue on health problems like psoriasis, eczema, or excessive oil production.

Making sure to eat a healthy and well-balanced diet can give a great many benefits to the body not least of which to the way in which you look. If you're seriously into training in the gym a bodybuilder diet could be the missing piece of the puzzle between your current shape and the way you want to look!

  • Excessive falling hair may likely be the result of severe stress, pregnancy, thyroid problems, or nutritional imbalances (that may be caused by crash diets). It may also occur when you have been regularly taking strong medications for a number of grave diseases.
  • When you've noticed yellowish dandruff falling off your hair, it might be a symptom of seborrheic dermatitis, a skin condition brought about by neurological issues, fungal infection, or hormonal imbalances.
  • If you think dull and brittle hair may be remedied by some form of miracle shampoo, you might be mistaken. It may be your body warning you against a lack of important nutrients or an imbalanced diet, both of which are problems associated with common eating disorders.

Teeth

While a Melbourne dental clinic specialising in cosmetic dentistry can provide immediate solution to this dilemma, don't take the matter lightly because your oral health may be indicative of your overall wellbeing.

  • Noticing excessive gum bleeding after brushing or flossing can be a warning sign for gingivitis, among the first stages of gum diseases that may eventually lead to periodontitis.
  • Bad breath, a seemingly mundane oral problem, may actually be the result of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, something that can likely lead to other oral problems. Good thing that this concern can be easier managed with the aid of dental care from a Melbourne clinic.
