We all want to stay healthy, but honestly, it can get to be a little much to worry about every little thing. Who has the time?! Well, it's time to put a little bit of consideration in, because sometimes it's the little things that you have been ignoring that are actually what you should be paying the most attention to.
There are four small things that you should be watching out on your face that can help you notice when something bigger is going on. Each of them can reveal serious medical conditions that you may be suffering from without even knowing it. Here's what you should watch out for.
Take a look at your eyebrows. If you notice that they are thinner than they used to be, or have always been thing, you may be suffering from hypothyroidism. This is especially noticable around the temples, but it's a good tip off.
Other symptoms you may experience are feeling tired and sluggish, feeling cold all the time, and even dry skin. If you are experiencing all of these symptoms, ask your doctor for a blood test.
Excessive Facial Hair and Acne
While a little bit of facial hair and acne is nothing to be worried about, if you are finding it to be increasing, your body is producing too much testosterone. This increase in hormones is often caused by polycystic ovary syndrome. It can lead to cysts forming in your ovaries and should be treated by a doctor.
