Bundaberg locals, is your skin hinting at something?

Most of us hold off visiting the doctor until we feel sick or injure ourselves. The truth is, our health can be waning long before we feel the symptoms! Our skin is one of the best indicators of health, and can be the first thing to let us know when something is not quite right. If you've been worrying about acne or your skin has been particularly dry, it could be due to a health deficiency. We've found some of the most common skin conditions that can be symptoms of a more sinister issue, so you can be better aware of what your body may be trying to tell you.

If you’ve noticed a sudden change in the appearance of your skin, then read on for some possible causes. If you’re worried you’re suffering from one of these conditions, it’s important to visit your local Bundaberg medical centre to speak to a medical professional.

Dull looking skin

If you’ve noticed your skin is missing that lovely glow it normally sports, there might be a reason for it! Living in a large city where we’re exposed to daily pollution from cars, trains and industrial buildings can have a huge affect on our skin. If you’ve noticed your skin is looking dull, make sure you’ve invested in a quality facial cleanser and beauty regime.

Dry skin

Dry skin can occur for plenty of reasons, the most common being a lack of hydration. Working in air-conditioning, a change of weather or not drinking enough water can all be causes of dry skin. Another cause, however, can be due to a vitamin C deficiency. Vitamin C helps to regulate structural collagen production for healthy, quick-to-heal skin! If you’ve been drinking plenty of water and moisturising your skin, but you’re still experiencing cracked and dry skin, visit your doctor to see if you need to stock up on some oranges!

Problem skin

If you have overly sensitive skin and suffer from conditions such as serious acne, psoriasis or eczema, this could be an indication that you need more vitamin A in your diet. Vitamin A can be found in foods such as sweet potato, carrot and broccoli, and is important for a number of immune functions and basic cellular health. The Psoriasis Institute notes that vitamin A can be extremely effective in treating psoriasis.

Red or white bumps (chicken skin)

If you notice you have small, painless bumps on the backs of your arms, on your cheeks or on your thighs, this could be Keratosis Pilaris. This is a condition that is caused by a build up of keratin in pores and follicles. Treating this is usually done by a topical vitamin A cream, but it can also be avoided by making sure you get plenty of omega-3 in your diet, and a sufficient amount of vitamin D from the sun.

Once you’ve visited your local Bundaberg medical centre for a check-up, you might want a skin treatment to help alleviate those symptoms. Check out these fantastic Bundaberg beauty salons that specialise in skin treatments!
