What your beauty issues are trying to tell you
We’ve all come across beauty issues every now and then. From dry, flaky skin to breakouts, there’s no doubt you’ve had to deal with beauty problems, and that’s why there are so many amazing brands and products out there to help you solve them.
However, sometimes your beauty issues are a reflection of what’s going on inside your body, and this is its way of trying to signal to you that there’s a health issue that needs to be dealt with. Read on to find out if your beauty issues mean more than you think…
BEAUTY ISSUE #1: UNUSUAL HAIR LOSS
We’ve all encountered that moment where you’ve been washing your hair only to realise that a handful of hair has fallen out with your shampoo. Before a panic attack sets in, it’s important to know that everyone loses between 40 and 120 strands of hair per day, depending on how much hair you have and your hair growth cycle. However, excessive hair loss can be linked to other health-related factors including anaemia, illness or high levels of stress, and as a side effect of some medications including oral contraceptives. Hormone imbalances can also trigger hair loss, so it’s important to talk to your doctor if you’re losing excessive amounts of hair.
If you’re worried about hair loss, try a product that works to treat and prevent hair fall by strengthening the hair root such as Head of Hair High Nutrient Scalp Spray or Evolis Topical Hair Loss Treatment for Women.
BEAUTY ISSUE #2: ECZEMA ON YOUR BODY
Dry, itchy and flaky skin can be incredibly uncomfortable and difficult to deal with. If your skin is regularly suffering from irritation, there’s a chance you may have eczema. Often developing when you’re a child, eczema can be brought on by internal issues such as a family history of eczema, asthma or hay fever, some foods (including dairy and wheat products, citrus fruits, eggs, nuts, seafood, chemical food additives, preservatives and colourings), alcohol, and stress. External irritants such as weather and air-conditioned environments can also cause eczema to flare up, as well as allergens like dust mites, mould and grass.
Although there is no known cure for eczema, there are many products specifically formulated to treat and calm eczema-prone skin. Try adding QV Flare Up Bath Oil to your evening bath, and follow by soothing your skin with a topical lotion such as DermaVeen Eczema Lotion.
BEAUTY ISSUE #3: SKIN ISSUES AND YOUR INNER HEALTH
Did you know the issues that appear on your skin are a good indication of what’s going on with the health of your body? Crazy, right? Thankfully, Dermalogica has developed a skin analysis technique called Face Mapping to detect what skin issues in different areas of your face are telling you about your body. This technique is perfumed by a Dermalogica expert and looks at the different ‘zones’ of your face using the ancient system of Chinese Facial Diagnosis to detect potential health issues with the activity of the heart, lungs, liver, spleen, kidneys and other organs.
Do suffer from any of the below issues?
Right and left eyes
Issues: Milia (small, raised white or yellowish bumps), fine lines, dark circles, puffiness, sensitised skin, irritation to eyelids
Face Mapping Health diagnosis: These issues could be linked to kidney stress, poor elimination of waste, poor water intake, or deficiencies in the diet.
