Weird Bumps And Cracked Lips? You Might Be Suffering From This Common Problem
Did you know that your skin is the biggest organ in your body? Generally, when something is wrong with your skin, it's your body trying to tell you something. Sometimes, minor skin ailments can be attributed to nutritional deficiency.
1. The corners of your lips are cracked
If you consistently have cracks at the corners of your lips, this can be a sign that you're not getting enough Vitamin B or zinc. You might also be deficient in iron or have poor oral hygiene.
To incorporate more Vitamin B into your diet, try eating more quinoa, tofu, lean cheese, chard, cabbage, broccoli, dried apricots, peanuts, asparagus, seeds and beans.
2. You have a strange facial rash and thinning hair
These symptoms both point to biotin shortage. Biotin, or Vitamin B7, helps metabolize carbs and keeps your skin and hair healthy. When you don't have enough of it, you may experience some dermatitis, brittle nails, and hair loss.
Good sources of biotin include goat's milk, nuts, carrots, almonds, bananas, avocados, sesame seeds, and mushrooms.
3. You're getting red and white acne-like bumps
These strange bumps on the cheeks, hips, and arms can arise because of a hormonal imbalance or due to Vitamin A or D deficiency.
You can reduce this problem by eating healthy fats, nuts, green leafy vegetables, peppers, and carrots.
4. You experience numbness or tingling in your hands and feet
If you have these symptoms, you might not be consuming enough Vitamins B6, B9, or B12. More serious causes include anemia, fatigue, or depression.
To avoid this, try to eat enough eggs, dairy, meat, or fortified soy and wheat products.
