Waking up with pimples spread on your face is not exactly the way anyone wants to start the day. While it is tempting to seek a topical treatment for the problem, the problem could repeat itself if caused by an inner underlying health issue like food sensitivity for example or deficiencies in vitamin A, Zinc or important fatty acids. Here’s a list of common beauty problems that could be triggered by an underlying health problem and how to fix the root cause.
1- Undesired Facial Hair.
Undesired facial hair for women could be a sign of hormonal imbalance resulted from excess production of androgens that could also be caused by polycystic ovarian syndrome PCOS especially when paired with missed or irregular periods.
Before you look for different ways to remove your facial unwanted hair, check with your doctor if your hormonal levels are balanced and investigate with you what could be causing the growth of facial hair.
2- Acne Breakouts.
Even though each case is different to the other. One potential cause of acne breakouts is the wrong diet. Studies showed that tendency for acne breakouts reduce significantly by following a diet low the glycemic index, meaning that you should be reducing your white flour, processed foods and sugars. Milk and dairy products could also be contributing to acne breakouts because they increase sebum, the oily substance the body secrates to prevent skin dryness.
3- Dark Circles Around The Eyes.
It is not only lack of sleep causes dark circles around the eyes, those dark circles can also mean that you are either allergic to substances around you or you are eating too many foods that your body finds toxic. Try to cut out on the most common allergens like gluten, dairy and eggs for ten days. If those dark circles wont clear away then ask your doctor to run some allergy tests to check if you have some environmental sensitivities like for pollen, dander, pets, mold, etc.
4- Tiny Pimples.
White or red patches of tiny pimples could be a sign your body is lacking important substances like essential fatty acids, zinc or vitamin A. To help your skin maintaining its oil barrier make sure to consume enough fatty acids like omega-3 from wild salmon, flaxseeds or pumpkin seeds. Eat more kidney beans and dark leafy vegetables for a boost in zinc and sweet potatoes, carrots or beaches for vitamin A.
